SORĠI is an ongoing research project about opportunities for circularity in Malta, whose first outcome is an outdoor furniture collection for public spaces, highly critical of the booming construction industry.
Six benches inspired by six buildings affected by the local construction frenzy will stand both as a memento of today’s choices and a suggestion for tomorrow’s actions.
Rita is the first piece of the collection inspired by Ta’ Rita restaurant in Ghar Lapsi. The Modernist building that was not deemed worth of heritage protection will be demolished soon in spite of having become a true icon of the modern movement in Malta. The design recalls the modernist main façade of the original building in a subtle and contemporary way, thanks to the use of its iconic bright blue and a rigorous yet elegant composition of basic cuboid shapes and columns.
The project born with the support of the Malta Arts Fund
