Products made with a circular mindset

In contrast to the ‘take-make-waste’ linear model, a circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.

In the future, the linear model should be replaced with a circular business model, where materials can be reused continuously.

The circular economy is becoming an increasingly competitive parameter for organizations within the furniture industry. Therefore, the exhibition seeks to support the brands who work in a circular manner and to draw more attention to new techniques, technologies, materials, certifications, and business models.

 

“We want Denmark to be world-famous in the future for not only good design but also stainable, green design and circular solutions”

– Betina Simonsen, CEO, Lifestyle & Design Cluster

The circular front runners

Many Danish brands are currently investing in and working with circular business models in one or more product lines. Lifestyle & Design Cluster wants to endorse this development and make it a business potential for the Danish brands that they have invested in green conversion to great inspiration for home and abroad.

In addition to the 25 selected brands, a group of artists and designers will showcase their take on the matter using deadstock materials in designing high value products.

All the exhibitors are working with circular economy and/or sustainability in one way or another. As you will discover, it is a big and rather diverse world, that both include sustainable business plans, reused materials, and products made of things you couldn’t imagine being used in that way. That’s the beauty of circular economy. And it’s already creating the furniture and interior design of tomorrow.
