About the event
During this virtual invite-only roundtable you meet 8 Danish design brands and discuss how flexible design extend the lifetime of products by designing with quality and multifunctionality in mind.
The DNA of Danish fashion and furniture has always been great design and durability. Products you can keep for a lifetime, adapt to different lifestyles, homes, and situations, or pass on for others to use in their life. This durability is the cornerstone for the circular economy, where resources circulate between uses, preferably in the same shape.
With this foundation of durability and adaptability, it is also no surprice that many danish lifestyle brands do very well on the resale market, as high quality is a foundation for many lives in the resale market.
In this virtual roundtable we will take a deep dive into the concepts of design for circularity. We will shed light on this from various angles, being either through longevity, durability, modular design, redesign, or repairs. The aim is to provide actionable inspiration and provide insight into the strategies of the frontrunners who are on this journey.
