An insight on the ability of design to inspire consciences and move habits.
JoeVelluto Studio looks back on twenty years of working activity with examples of design with inherent sense that have the intent to guide the observer’s mindset and daily actions, through a path consisting of eight practices originated from the hybridisation between a pragmatic design-related realness and the Buddhist Noble Eightfold Path, whose fundamentals – narrated in eight video installations conceived in cooperation with Fabrica – should guide ourselves in our being humans even before being applied to the practice of design. Responsibility, society outlook, sustainability, circular economy and design, respect for the environment and for any existing being – they are some of the topics covered as a consequence to a virtuous behaviour.
The project is proposed in two coexisting formats: an in-depth on-line platform and a temporary accessible exhibition that concludes into a call to action, a compendium of virtuous behaviours ready to be carried out, at the only existing moment, the “here and now”.

Sustainability.
The project’s communication and information media have been conceived in accordance with some principles of sustainability. Paper used is obtained from the re-use at 100% of resulting sheets derived from other printing processes; all graphic elements are optimised in terms of resolution; printouts are monochromatic and come from HUV-LED printing technology, that uses UV light reagent inks in order to avoid the use of fixative solvents or paints, and not to resort to the employ of set-off powder.
The list of materials utilised for the set-up project of the exhibition includes a minimum quantity of wooden panels, whereas the structural base elements are made of metal frames covered with recycled and recyclable fabric (GiPlanetGroup patented system). The use of raw materials and semi-finished products was reported so as to ensure transparency and respect the environment.
The website www.designinpratica.it was developed so that its browsing produces a monitored and reduced energy consumption. In addition to apparent solutions such as the partial adoption of system fonts, the use of a dark mode theme – reversible at any time, depending on the user’s preferences – and the complete abolition of colour, there is a structural efficiency to facilitate the interaction with the user, and a SEO optimisation to return the contents of the website in a quick and easy way while searching.
