Abstract

The Design for All approach, enhancing human diversity, promotes the spread of a social conscience oriented towards inclusion. This seems particularly useful for the training of young designers, because it obliges them to consider the complex system of constraints and opportunities arising from the extreme variability of the design targets, that more and more contemporary society requires to design activity. Here are described the development and results of a teaching experience, entitled “Green for all”, developed at the University of Chieti-Pescara, in which students designed a product for gardening, referring to specific and original use contexts, through the DfA approach. Starting from the dimensional and productive restriction of earthenware, the projects had the purpose to favor the cultivation of ornamental plants or domestic spices even in contexts of original use (in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the office, but also on the desk, in gym or on the train).
