When creating change, there’s a lot of power in shared language - understanding what we’re saying to one another!
The Circular Design Glossary provides 40+ tangible, inspiring applications – from sofas to tables to lighting – that illustrate real-life solutions to today’s problematic linear ‘take-make-waste’ way of living.
In the 4th interview in our Changemakers series -- leaders in sustainable, circular and regenerative approaches in the furniture industry -- PROWL Studio co-founders, Lauryn Menard and Baillie Mishler, share their provocations, principles and core ethos.
"This chair (PEEL chair) grew out of absolute outrage and optimism. We started asking ‘What if things lasted only as long as they need to?’ We decided to design a chair that completely returns to the earth at the end of its life."
"We begin with the end -- our ethos -- emphasizes fully understanding the afterlife of everything we design. We’re committed to choosing manufacturing processes and materials that are responsible. To us, that means that the end-of-life of every product, material, or space is equally important as its design and regeneration."
