CYCLIC DESIGN

sustainable design consultancy

We ideate and prototype sustainable products

Cyclic design is a consultancy company, therefore we provide advice on how to design ecological products. 

What is sustainable design?

Cyclic takes into consideration the entire lifecycle of a product, not only the way it looks. The main phases of product’s lifecycle are production, distribution, consumption and end-of-life. This means that when we ideate a product, we analyse its lifecycle and find which phases can be optimised. 
Ccyclic is a sustainable design consultancy company. It advises on the best practices for sustainability for designing products. Designers in this company consult on how to develop more ecological products, taking into consideration the entire lifecycle of a product. Green design or ecological design is the core function of the company.  

WhAT WE DO

Sustainability strategy

When designing a product, we strive to achieve a more circular lifecycle.  In opposition to a linear disposable model, we design products which live longer and are re-usable or recyclable.
l

Design creation

We use creative approaches to an environmetal challenge. Creativity can push the boundaries of societal conventions. When we set the right parameters we can start to design!

Visualisation

Environmental design covers various aspects of a product, from the way it looks to the way you interact with it. We offer a range of technical services, from sketching to 3d modeling to UX design.

Prototyping

Once the design has been defined, today’s rapid prototyping technology, such as 3d printing, enable to quickly realise a prototype and test it.

the guidelines for sustainable products

Sustainability as a mega-trend has been explored by various institutions and companies. As a result, it follows guidelines related to production and materials, energy efficiency, waste minimisation, recyclability as well as new circular business models.

Circular Economy

Eco Design

DESIGN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Cyclic takes inspiration from environmental issues such as waste reduction.

PLASTIC WASTE

Nepenthes

Nepenthes is a more efficient plastic packaging system for personal care products. Nepenthes is a capless bottle, which means that is mono-material and does not require separation of different components. It is an alternative to disposable plastic packaging.

E-WASTE

binee

binee incentives people to recycle their old electronic devices. By installing e-waste collection points in conventient location, people can recycle their old electronics and get a reward back.

WATER EFFICIENCY

Oceanid

Oceanid saves water by re-using the water from hand-washing for flulshing the toilet. The system integrates a tank which stores the water from hand-washing and uses it for flushing.
