Designers can make a significant contribution to the circular economy. It all starts with the right business model and development of a plan that works that matches the strategy of the company.
That was the main outcome of the CIRCO Circular Design Class that took place on April 21 at the TU Delft. In this one day course the principles and practical application of circular design were taught to designers from different sectors. Siem Haffmans was one of the trainers.
Designing a circular product is just one step in the process. As most designers were not familiar with the business models, they gained new and practical insights into their role as a designer in developing circular products, how to connect these to services and how to include this in a business model.
