Da Morto a Orto is a project by Peter Bottazzi and Denish Bonapace. It is an exhibit of multiple pieces of furniture that has been gutted and recycled into one-of-a-kind planters. The title, Da Morto a Orto, means "from redundant to abundant," which is the perfect description for these pieces.

Peter Bottazzi and Denish Bonapace have taken ordinary objects that we see over and over again throughout our lives and have transformed them into unique items that have the potential to provide sustenance and life. Da Morto a Orto features different chairs, couches and drawers that would normally be found on the curb and breathes new meaning, purpose and function into them. Each piece would make for a great indoor kitchen garden.
