MORE THAN JUST DESIGN
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.
