Circular City Week
Circularity and the Future of Furniture Design
Join us to discuss holistic and realistic steps and strategies to
implement the circular economy, new approaches to regenerative
systems, and the challenges and opportunities of retooling a
risk-averse manufacturing industry. With a special focus on the
challenges of the furniture sector and real-life case studies,
we’ll walk you through cradle-to-cradle best practices like life
cycle audits, Design for Disassembly, reclaiming technical and
biological nutrients and many other techniques.
This virtual workshop will feature thought-and action-leaders in furniture and circularity: Paula Luu, Senior Project Director at the Center for the Circular Economy, Closed Loop Partners; Emily McGarvey, Director of Sustainability, Room & Board; and Phantila Phataraprasit, Co-Founder/CEO, Sabai; and moderated by sustainability designer Sarah Templin.
