I forlængelse af udstillingen ’Cirkulær Økonomi i arkitektur og design’ præsenterer KADK en åben seminarrække, der blandt andet vil sætte fokus på emner som arkitekturens samspil med naturen og cirkulær design. Seminarrækken trækker på viden og erfaring fra nogle af verdens førende arkitekter og designere på området, der er inviteret til at tale om deres arbejde på det cirkulære felt. 

How do we shift the perception and design process when we design with recycled materials? How do we recreate the esthetic value for recycled materials? And what does it take to recycle textiles into furniture and decorative elements?  

This seminar is conducted by Wickie Meier (CEO of Really) and Charlotte Bastholm Skjold (Head of Design Management of Kvadrat). The seminar will focus on recycling textile into furniture and decorative elements. Really upcycles end-of-life textiles to create materials that challenge the design and architecture industries to rethink their use of resources, and to design with a Circular Economy in mind. Kvadrat is partner in LAUNCH Circular and helps innovators scale through collaboration.  

Charlotte and Wickie will discuss their focus on designing for a circular economy and how they together with Max Lamb collaborated to make esthetic furniture from recycled textiles. They will also talk about their professional and personal journey one being an entrepreneur and one an established actor in the Circular Economy movement. The seminar will therefore give you insights on how to join the movement and we invite you to engage in the discussion.
