Milan. Design for the good: chairs for prisoners’ children

The “Stanze Sospese” association with the Allianz UMANA MENTE Foundation makes chairs for the inmates’ children of San Vittore.

Sedie detenute San Vittore di Stanze Sospese

“Furniture for all” designs chairs and brings a little color to the children of seven inmates in the San Vittore prison in Milan. The project is off “Stanze Sospese”, an association made up of a group of volunteers and involving several actors in the production process of the chairs. In fact, these are created by social carpenters and Polo Arredativo Legno Arredo, and have been painted and finalized by the autistic kids of the non-profit organization Fondazione Sacra Famiglia Arteticamente. In prison, mothers of color laboratories were organized to customize the chairs for each child. A belt made of the inner tube and a character from a cartoon chosen by the ad hoc child was added to the chair. Everything was financed by the Allianz Foundation UMANA MENTE “The condition of a child in prison is certainly of great sadness - observes Nicola Corti, General Secretary of the foundation” We must try to make it as light as possible. With this in mind, our Foundation participated with conviction in the project ‘Stanze sospese’, whose name evokes places where life is apparently frozen waiting for a second chance and a social redemption. This is the sense of our support for the project”.
