innovative product design
towards a circular economy
Cyclic Design is a sustainable design studio that uses a lifecycle thinking and provides advice on to apply it to products design.
What is sustainable design?
Sustainable design takes into consideration the entire lifecycle of a product, not only the way it looks. We analyse the main phases of product’s lifecycle: production, distribution, consumption and end-of-life. Designing a prodcut means for us optimising its lifecyle.
Cyclic Design provides sustainable design consultancy on best practices for sustainability applied to product design. We strive to develop more ecological products, taking into consideration their entire lifecycle.
