About the talk

De-Growth - Embracing the imperfect

This second digital talk on Sustainable Design from Flokk is a further expansion on our circular design criteria. This time we will focus on how sustainable material choices need to be a priority right from the beginning of the design process.

Exploring how conscious material use can be navigated to support global de-growth - the deliberate and planned downscaling of production and consumption that increases human well-being whilst enhancing ecological conditions and equity on the planet.

And importantly; how does the use of recycled materials impact the aesthetics of furniture going forward. How can we embrace the imperfect in order to maximise re-use of materials such as household waste and ocean plastics?
