Scrap Culture: Sustainable Design Practices in a World of Waste

Today we live in a world that creates more waste than it does reduce, reuse, or recycle. Designers in all disciplines are trying to address this through the exploration of new materials and production processes, creating a new design language and landscape that moves beyond industry or craft.

This CEU will look at how the design industry is using waste to create new things, bridging design and sustainability for interiors, architecture, product design, fashion, and the arts.

Explore this new world of SCRAP CULTURE as we head towards a new sustainable future.

In this CEU, we will:

  • Learn about new sustainable design processes
  • Look at new innovative materials that address waste
  • Explain how the Circular Economy benefits design
  • Explore the idea of waste as design currency

Presented by Royce Epstein, veteran materials & product specialist and A&D Design Director for Mohawk Group.
