14 Sep 4. Tomorrow opens “My chair needs a haircut”, an exhibition of exclusive furniture by designers in collaboration with disabled people
The exhibition “My hair needs a haircut” by the designers Sanserif Creatius will open tomorrow Thursday 15 September at 7. p.m., at the Arquetécnica Ruzafa Gallery in Valencia. The exhibition is a selection of exclusive furniture developed by this team of Valencian creatives and produced by the workers of the Special Employment Centre (CEE) of the APAI Foundation in Madrid.
The exhibition aims to promote the incorporation of environmental values in the habitat industry, while promoting the social and occupational integration of people with different abilities who participate in the project.

The exhibition forms part of the circuit of cultural activities organised by Sanserif Creatius for the dates of the Feria Hábitat Valencia, between 20 and 25 September, and which will be integrated into the events planned for this year’s Valencia Disseny Week (VDW).
The exhibition project, coordinated by the designer Ana Yago, has been configured as a contemporary space in which a dozen pieces of furniture and complements made entirely from 100% recyclable corrugated cardboard and covered in hair, hand-assembled in the CEE of the Apai Foundation.
The pieces recreate a setting suitable for both personal or work spaces, with sofas, footrests, lights and decorative armchairs, which are complemented by bags and specialised books on art and design. This has been developed with ecological paper and cardboard covers with the aim of demonstrating that it is possible to be responsible and respectful of the environment without renouncing aesthetics and exclusivity.

This project is the result of a collaboration between the Spanish Association of Correguated Cardboard Packaging Manufacturers (AFCO), the company Saica Pack, the Apai Foundation and Sanserif Creatius. This exhibition has been conceived as a training project that promotes social and environmental awareness; focusing on the quality of the work that is done in the CEEs and offering an alternative to what is usually offered, in the words of Anna Yago.
