The first unit is now installed in Turin, IT



Turin, Italy


The project is an open-source installation in the Arrivore Park in Turin and it is part of Geodesign – an international competition organized by the “Turin World Design Capital 2008” initiative.

WeTube is an irregular structure made of corten steel cylinders that can be filled with items like plants, wooden seats, recycling bins or barbecue grills. The project will grow with time, like a living plant rooted in the park. WeTube was developed in collaboration with Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana, participation consultant Elena Caffarena and students from local Turinese schools. The exhibition’s prototype was built by Extravega.
