Next Cabane and Riot Act are two projects carried out by Fabrica, a “creativity think tank”, financed by Benetton and located in Treviso, Italy, which invites young artists and designers from all over the world to develop innovative projects and to explore new directions in different disciplines - from design, music and film to photography, publishing and the Internet. In this “laboratory for applied creativity”, housed in a 17th-century villa, renovated by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando, these young creators, accompanied by leading figures in art and communication, are encouraged to transgress boundaries of these disciplines by developing experimental projects, taking into account their economical, social and ecological dimensions. The aim of Fabrica is to open new perspectives on the world of tomorrow.

The Riot Act by Fabrica on display in the Foyer (Level -1) at Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, bears the name of the notorious British law of 1714 that banned the assembly of groups larger than 12 people. The 12 designers of this project were given the task of conceiving objects based on the set form of a ceramic cylinder, which, through modifications, processes or additions of the new elements, is transformed in form and function.
