Material Design
Circular Economy | C2C  

 

This section showcases three projects in the direction of circular design. 

Making production truly circular is a complex matter. It starts with thinking about the resources we have and ends with our perception and current behaviour. 
These projects mai
nly focus on the material perspective to first communicate how we could reuse materials / make them useable.

Awareness Creation 

We use animal hair to produce products.

But how comfortable are we with using our own?

The Question

Material design and science around human hair

How can we use the Biomimicry principle ‘Maintain Physical Integrity‘ to create designs that integrate the material properties and their influences on human

beings?


Protecting from physical harm

The concept is based on deep research in the field: How does nature protect itself from physical harm? I created my map around the topic by deep

diving into the book of Janine Benyus ‚Biomimicry.

Inspired by Nature‘Janine Benyus ‚Biomimicry and the Website asknature. org.

Keratin is locally available.

Keratin is one of the materials that evolved as a natural protection mechanism. Human hair from keratin filters pollutants, isolates sound and insulates heat and

can be used in product design like wool.

Collaboration with Recell, NL

Impact Goal

Melissa Kramer, Lobke Beckfeld, Nicholas Plunkett, and Eli Goltermann have been cooperating with Cellvation® to make an innovative project proving that fibres extracted from toilet paper waste are more valuable than to sit as waste.

The Question ... 

Cellulose extracted from toilet paper waste has been an essential part of Cellvation®. Cellvation® has been able to up-cycle cellulose for multiple purposes.
 

However, how can we display the resource as a valuable asset and communicate the struggle around toilet paper as waste material to only clean our private parts. 

Design Process

Cellulose extracted from toilet paper waste has been an essential part of Cellvation®. Cellvation® has been able to up-cycle cellulose for multiple purposes.

In the design process, the pre-recycled pallets and fluff of Cellvation® were used to create other materials. 

Next to that, I created an overview of the circular system, communication around it and maintained s
takeholder contacts.
