Design Seminar in COPENHAGEN

Seminar: “Design, materials and plastic recycling”: How to design with plastic – or for recycling?

Seminar on June 2nd /Copenhagen:  Important decisions are taken at the early design stage when form, aesthetics, user experience and properties of a product is laid down. But how can designers support plastic recycling and positively influence later stage factors like cost and environmental per­formance?

When and how should plastic recycling be inte­grated in the design process? And what are the pros and cons of using recycled plastic as raw material from a design­ers

point of view? These questions will be looked into during the seminar organized in co-operation between FORCE Technology, The Danish Plastics Federation and the Innovation Network for Enivronmental Technologies (Inno-MT). Designworks has been invited to facil­itate one of the three workshops.
