Inspiring designs from waste through digital production
- CIRCULAR SOCIETY
- DESIGN FOR CHANGE
Digital production and design opens a window to develop new customized concepts of products with a circular value. Within the research group Circular Design and Business we research viable applications of waste materials through design. Together with designers and industry we experiment with several waste streams like scrap wood and textiles. With use of digital production technologies such as robotics and laser cutting we explore surprising new materials and products.
There are three speakers planned who will address the following questions:
What do we categorize as digital production? Supported with recycled wood case.
What is the added value of the use of recycled material and how is the acceptance? Supported with case of acceptance research into recycled plastic; which role does the designer play in the creation of added value for surplus streams with use of digital production techniques? Supported with recycled textile case.
With, among others, Mark Lepelaar en Inge Oskam / HvA and Stella van Himbergen / CIRCO as moderator.
