The Nuovo Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA), the Italian fine art academy, has launched the Dani Academy to research zero impact leather design, reports ILM.
The first stage took place in Milan, with selected students from the Academy coming together to discuss sustainable innovation in leather.
Eight of the students’ works, selected by a jury of NABA teachers, are currently on display at Lineapelle in Milan.
The project is set to grow over the next few months, involving more art institutions and universities across Europe including the IUAV University in Venice and the Institut Français de la Mode in Paris.
