Design is partly to blame for an over-abundance of products in our lives. In this talk we explore the solutions it can offer.

Sustainable Products

Design is partly to blame for an over-abundance of products in our lives, but it can also offer solutions. Discover designers using radical processes and materials – from natural substances like mushroom mycelium to engineered vegan leathers – to reduce waste and promote more meaningful object relationships. Can we move from greenwashing towards a genuinely circular economy?
