CUCULA is an educational and manufacturing project. It enables refugees to build up their own future by making furniture based on the concept of the Italian designer Enzo Mari.

Working with and not for newcomers CUCULA aims to empower them financially, socially and with skills. The focus lies on the potentials of each individual. The economical integration model is a platform for interdisciplinary and intercultural exchange as well as a design subject and a scope for new societal chances. By linking the refugee issue with the groundbreaking design concept new spaces for creation are opened up.
