Mensole inBolla for Bolle Bollate
This project addresses the need of making room, crucial in any jail cell but urgent in everydaylife as well. A collection of shelves, it enables the possibility to attach pockets to the wooden structures, enriching the functionality of the object and adding a soft touch to it at the same time. "To soften" as a general aim is suggested by the round edges and made explicit by the feature of every shelf: a scented wax can that encourages prompt fondness gestures.
The wax defend the wood and at the same time releases its aroma, able to evoke the open air without invading the minimum space of the prison room. Stimulating the sense of smell often relates to escaping memories.
