Un divano come si deve.

Come tutti, immagino, siete bombardati dalle pubblicità (soprattutto) di una nota marca di divani, che ormai da tempo, cogliendo lo spirito del fare “manuale” tanto di moda ultimamente e tipicamente Made in Italy, ci segnala incessantemente da quali mani esperte nascono i propri divani. E se proprio non riesce a convincervi, ecco ribadito che il mega sconto è ancora disponibile fino alla prossima domenica (mi pare che la promozione perduri da anni ormai, essendo diventata ormai di fatto permanente). A giudicare dal tam-tam pubblicitario di questa e di altre marche, pare proprio che l’aspirazione principale degli italiani sia quella di acquistare un divano.

Ma com’è fatto davvero un divano? O, allargando il discorso, visto che parliamo di “qualità”, come si assembla un divano davvero “sostenibile” o “green”, se così vogliamo chiamarlo? A questo dubbio ho dato la risposta nella mia ultima trasferta a Seattle, dove ho scoperto che c’è qualcuno che davvero realizza divani … come si dovrebbe.

Ecobalanza si potrebbe definire una start-up dei divani, per come è nata e si è sviluppata, grazie alla passione e all’impegno di Aimee Robinson. Aimee – brillante imprenditrice di origine messicana trapiantata a Seattle dove coordina un gruppo di lavoranti tutti messicani, con buona pace dell’attuale presidente americano – si è messa in testa di realizzare “the ultimate sofa”. E’ il divano che manda in soffitta tutti gli altri, perché realizzato unicamente (e senza compromessi) in maniera artigianale, senza componenti chimici e con materiali biologici. E il più possibile “a chilometri zero”. Un divano con tutte queste caratteristiche, ma che sia anche e soprattutto bello e confortevole. La vision non è da poco: “We are working to build the most comfortable, beautiful and environmentally responsible luxury upholstered furniture in the world”.

Come si realizza un divano così (non lo chiamo “di nuova generazione” perché dovrebbe essere il divano della generazione alla quale ci siamo dimenticati di appartenere). Due azioni convinte sono necessarie: 1. Andare nel dettaglio e 2. Studiare molto.

La cura del dettaglio non è solo un modo di dire. Per capire dove rendere più sostenibile ambientalmente un divano bisogna scomporlo nei suoi componenti, capire perché servono e perché servono determinati materiali, da dove questi materiali provengono e come sono stati realizzati, con quali materie prime, da quali mani (toccare davvero la responsabilità sociale). Davvero il diavolo sta nei dettagli.

Le molle di un divano EcoBalanza (sopra) e quelle di un divano “comune” (sotto)

Studiare: bisogna studiare come funziona un divano, e quali sono le prestazioni necessarie, richieste dal cliente, gradite. Un divano deve sorreggere un peso (statico o dinamico), deve essere confortevole, al tatto, all’olfatto, alla vista … deve essere resistente, duraturo, trasportabile, ignifugo, lavabile, ecc. ecc. E deve essere anche producibile, fattibile artigianalmente e non eccessivamente complicato, per far sì che i costi non schizzino alle stelle. Bisogna studiare per capire come ottenere le prestazioni con materiali più sostenibili, naturali, biologici, in totale assenza di componenti o additivi chimici. Bisogna studiare per trovare delle alternative accettabili al 100%, anche cambiando i componenti o ottenendo le stesse prestazioni con una struttura diversa. Aimee non è cresciuta … producendo divani. È una passione che è emersa nel suo percorso professionale e per la quale da dieci anni ha studiato tanto per essere preparata, padroneggiare la materia e avere gli strumenti della conoscenza indispensabili per cambiare lo status quo.

See, smell (annusa!), feel, & learn about the materials and techniques we use to handcraft luxury upholstered furniture that is safe for homes & businesses and kind to the environment” – recita l’invito sul sito web dell’azienda. Nella visita alla produzione, Aimee mi ha mostrato com’è fatto un divano come la stragrande maggioranza di quelli che siamo abituati a vedere (e acquistare) e come viene invece realizzato il divano di EcoBalanza, spiegandomi, pezzo per pezzo, materiale per materiale, dove lei ha … ha cambiato le regole del gioco.

I colori per i rivestimenti

Chiaramente un divano così costa di più del solito divano (ma non così tanto come mi sarei aspettato) e, dopotutto, è personalizzato secondo le richieste del singolo cliente, alla quale il processo e le condizioni di acquisto sono spiegate in maniera chiara e trasparente. È altresì ovvio che costa di più e perché costa di più, e la considerazione che ho fatto al termine di questo viaggio nel mondo dei divani è che più che altro ho capito perché gli altri divani costano così poco. Perché vale poco l’ambiente che ci circonda? Perché vale poco la vita delle persone che lavorano per realizzare il divano sul quale siate accovacciati? Perché vale poco la nostra salute, abituati sempre di più come siamo a riempirci la casa di sostanze chimiche a basso prezzo e dannose?

Aimee è inoltre convinta dell’importanza delle certificazioni di sostenibilità. In esse non vede solo l’aspetto di marketing; lo ritiene vincente, sì, ma non ne ha bisogno per farsi strada nel mercato dei divani: dopotutto vuole mantenersi su numeri bassi, altrimenti sa che perderebbe quella artigianalità (lei sì! …) che rappresenta uno dei suoi valori distintivi. Nelle etichette di sostenibilità EcoBalanza vede il riconoscimento neutrale (di parte terza) della qualità e della coerenza ambientale di ciò che sta facendo. “We believe we can make our world safer and more sustainable one sofa, one chair, one ottoman and one upholstered headboard at a time.”

Legno FSC. No VOC. Sostenibilità e impatto sulla salute sono stati valutati e certificati per ogni componente e materia prima.

E più questi protocolli sono rigorosi e sfidanti, meglio è, perché il fine ultimo e il rigore dei principi sui quali ha fondato il suo business valgono l’impegno. Sta perseguendo la certificazione Living Product Challenge (che rappresenta la naturale evoluzione di quanto tracciato da Declare). Le chiedo “Ma non sei spaventata dall’impegno necessario, anche economico?” “Perché dovrei, mi risponde, lo devo fare perché questo riconoscimento senza pari è pienamente allineato con ciò che sto facendo”. E l’International Living Future Institute ha scelto proprio un suo divano per accogliere i propri ospiti nella lobby 😊 E scopro che la nostra battaglia per un futuro diverso può partire per cominciare proprio dal sofà dal quale sto scrivendo.

Feeling REGENERATED, at last.

Five takeaways from REGENERATION 2017, 3rd edition.

Another edition (the third) is gone and I think of the punctual and constant work we did in these five months (yes, that is what it takes to organize REGENERATION) to get the most out of these 64 hours (from Wednesday, 26 at 9 o’ clock, to Friday 28, April night at 1 AM, April 29) super-concentrated of enthusiasm, innovation, creativity, internationality and robust technical skills.

I’m often flattering myself that the process is so well-known that I’m not able to grasp the differences between one edition and another. But every time the surprise catches me, little by little as I cross the Centrale Fies gates the days before; I feel the energy that is coming up. It’s never the same experience and I’m fond of people and teams (people make teams …) and so impressed with their willingness to give the best of themselves for a common end result. Also this time it was different, these are my five main take-aways.

1. The force is in the group

People make the group. Thus begins, the theoretical exercise that we make every year at the end of the selection process, to form groups as much balanced as we can. We try to balance everything: architects and engineers, Italians and foreigners (but we are all Europeans, what really changes between an engineer from Turin and a Slovakian architect?), males and females (yes, “males and females”, not “men and women”, as we used to say when we were kids and we went to school ;-), age (the teams are more or less of the same average age, about thirty years old), the areas of sustainability (energy, water or materials? ), curricula, graduates, doctorates, masters, experiences, projects’ portfolio, etc. etc. etc.

YELLOW team

Then, throughout the workshop, little by little, it is the group that emerges, it is the group that makes people, and among three teams theoretically perfectly balanced, in the end there is only one who wins; and it is always, I say always, the best-knit. Dynamics, synergies, continuous confrontation, optimism, and a pinch of calm in the creative disorder. After three years I know how you can win REGENERATION 😉

2. If energy is limitless.

Energy begins to grow in the days before the start of REGENERATION. We do the inspections and each time I understand that no coincidence brought us here. Here, where the Fies hydroelectric plant started producing in 1909 to cover the energy needs of the city of Trento, the factory continues to produce creative energy. Energy is not unlimited and it is consumed, someone would think. But when it comes to competition, energy instead of being consumed, is produced, by the quiet and constant interaction of the 15 participants. It’s a renewable energy, actually.

BLUE team (with Martin Brown, tutor)

This year, unlike the previous editions, we anticipated the entire program of half a day, to allow young professionals to conclude the three projects within Friday night, at 1 AM. But they started to stay up late (3, 4, …) already from the first night. When creativity is bulimia. 64 hours x 5 people = 320 men/women hours… I thought they would have been completely squeezed on Friday night… nothing, they were more or less as fresh as a daisy. Energy regenerates. And it is contagious.

3. Living Building Challenge. We can do it.

Once again the Living Building Challenge has been won. You can re-qualify a building with a zero environmental impact; yes, you can do it and it’s also fun. In 2015, the first REGENERATION building was the municipal library of Dro (1975), a building with good potential for transformation, also in relation to the nearby Sarca River. Last year, for the second edition, an additional complication, a historic building with preservation constraints – the Arco Bus Station (1891) – and also in this case the teams (all of them) did it.

GREEN team (with Emanuele Naboni, tutor)

This time, we have broadened the range of action, asking the participants to analyze the relationship between the “A. Zadra” elementary school and the Degasperi district, in Riva del Garda. A jump in scale, where you can see the transition between the building and the community, always following the Living Building Challenge philosophy. And even in this case the challenge (technical, architectural, technological, urban planning) was won. I continue to say, and I really start to convince myself, Living Building Challenge buildings are the buildings of the future, like the NZEBs (Nearly Energy Zero Buildings) that will be mandatory in Italy since 2019 according to 2010/31 EU Directive.

4. A replicable model

2015, Dro. 2016, Arco. 2017, Riva del Garda. We arrived at the lake front. A typical 70s building, a historic building, this time a neighborhood. And now? How to go on? The question turns in my head for a while.

The mechanism is running, the scheme works, and the model is replicable. Boundaries are now too small; the gameplay is ready to be re-presented in new contexts. European, like Europeans are the brilliant professionals who come to Fies every year to come out to promote the principles of the Living Building Challenge in their cities and nations. In addition, the surprising results (the three projects submitted are always valid and feasible) triggered by the almost three days of intense work by each of the three teams, clash with the solid procedures practice (policy choices, funding decrees, bidding, permissions, etc., etc.) and enthusiasm is blurred on time. In short, REGENERATION needs a regeneration…

Centrale Fies

5. Genius loci

The Genius loci is a natural and supernatural entity linked to a place and object of worship in the Roman religion. This association between Genius and the physical site originates from the Augustan age. According to Servio, nullus locus sine Genio (no place is without a Genius) (Commentary to Eneide, 5, 95). Genius loci is now understood in architecture to identify the set of socio-cultural, architectural, linguistic, and habitat characteristics that characterize a place, an environment, a city. A transversal term, which deals with the characteristics of an environment interlaced with man and the habits with which he lives in this environment. It indicates the “character” of a place.

There is a genius in the locus of Centrale Fies. Something that was there, that is there now, that has appeared at each REGENERATION, something that remains behind us as we pass the gate in the cold last night, before the final presentations. Some things are really difficult to be written in a call for a design competition…

#REGENERATION

What is REGENERATION?

It is a design workshop – entirely based on the Living Building Challenge standard – in which teams composed of young professionals under 35 years old, are called to develop a project of sustainable requalification of an existing public building for the local community. Every team should respond to specific requirements defined in the announcement Integrative design, synergistic development of the project and sharing of expertise are necessary prerogatives to tackle this challenge. The purpose of the competition is to show the best sustainable regeneration project for the existing building in terms of architecture, energy efficiency, livability and relationship with social, urban and natural context.

3rd edition teams and projects:

YELLOW team (winner): Francesco Perozzo (leader, Italy), Giulia Guglielmo (Italy), Louise Hamot (France), Sonia-Iulia Raetchi (Romania), Eugenijus Sapel (Lithuania). Project: COLSFOOT.

Giunto alla terza edizione, è organizzato da Carlo Battisti con Macro Design Studio e il Living Building Challenge Collaborative: Italy e con il supporto dell’International Living Future Institute di Seattle (WA, USA), l’ente che ha sviluppato e promuove lo standard LBC.

Pioneering a new frontier for healthy buildings.

The WELL Faculty™ Program is a network of educators – authorized by the International WELL Building Institute™ (ILFI) – who are highly experienced and knowledgeable on the topic of the WELL Building Standard™ and who have demonstrated and maintain well-honed presentation and facilitation skills.

After becoming in 2016 the first in Italy to earn the WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP™) credential, Carlo Battisti has just entered – first in EU – the WELL Faculty family, placing him among a group of leading professionals who are dedicated to supporting human health and well-being in the built environment. There are currently 32 WELL Faculty educators under the Program (11 of them are outside US).

Our buildings have a profound impact on our health, well-being and productivity.

WELL is an independently verified, performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of buildings that impact human health and well-being. WELL is also the first building standard to focus exclusively on the human health and wellness in our buildings and communities.

WELL combines best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research – harnessing buildings as vehicles to support human health and well-being.

WELL Certified™ spaces can help create buildings that improve the nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep patterns, productivity and performance of its occupants.

WELL is composed of over 100 features that are applied to each building project. Each WELL feature is designed to address issues that impact the health, comfort or knowledge of occupants through design, operations and behavior.

Our buildings can shape our habits and choices, regulate our sleep-wake cycle, drive us toward healthy and unhealthy choices, and passively influence our health through the quality of our surroundings.

WELL provides a framework for project teams to incorporate a variety of strategies to integrate human health and well-being at the heart of building design, construction and operations. WELL also allows project teams to innovate and transform the way humans can interact with the buildings and spaces they live in. WELL allows people to connect with buildings. [Sources: WELL Brochure.
