Abstract

The DECA project, coordinated by Agnes Rebaglio and undertaken in partnership with the Municipality of Milan and the Farsi Prossimo consortium, has placed at the centre of the design the operational requirements of second level hospitality centres for refugees. In this context we have carried out a workshop experience for the development and provision of a series of ‘cosy’ products, so called because they seek to improve the process of inclusion for guests in the welcome centers. Second-level hospitality must deal with several key issues that include: the management of time, the gender issue, the cultural differences and the attendant need for a neutral space, the sensitive state of emergency, the mix between public and private sphere. Given the current urgency, the conditions for the guests of the centre and the need for viable answers in a very short time, the project has sought appropriate solutions for the immediate term by drawing on ready-made items. Thanks to the collaboration of IKEA, materials and objects in the catalogue have provided the raw material for the project.
