Sustainability is the core of our activities

Our activities have sustainability at their core. Design and business development is what enables Cycylic Design to find innovative products in the fast-changing consumers goods market. We work with engineers to build a solid basis for the development of our clients’ sustainable products.   


Product Design

Architect by training and designer by trade, Marilu Valente has always been designing with environmental issues in mind. She is inspired by innovations which can be integrated within a circular economy. 


Business Development

Expert in strategy development, market and acceptance research, as well as evaluator for the UN, the EC and national ministries in the fields of energy efficiency, technology transfer, standardization, climate protection and e-waste.


Multi-disciplinary design approach

Cyclic Design uses a multi-disciplinary approach to design. To rethink a product from a sustainability point of view, we cannot do it with only design. Cyclic Design’s network includes a community of multi-disciplinary professionals who come together to develop sustainable products design. We focus on creating more circular products, which goes against the standard linear way of consuming goods.
