Location: HDK room 338
Event Type: Lecture

Business & Design Lab, The Swedish School of Textiles and ADA Sweden invite to a lunch seminar about how design can contribute to circular business in car and fashion industries.

The seminar is free of charge, but you need to register: info@adasweden.se

It is urgent to change both industrial and consumer behaviour if we want to achieve sustainable goals. Cars and fashion belong to those industries whose business models are built on constant desires for new products – and new designs. While design has contributed to the model of obsolescence and the linear business model, can design instead reverse and contribute to the model of longevity and circular business models? Meet and discuss this with two doctoral candidates from HDK/Rise, Gothenburg and Swedish School of Textile, Borås: Anna Lidström, fashion designer and PhD student at the Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås and Thomas Nyström, industrial designer and PhD student at Academy of Design and Craft, university of Gothenburg and Research Institutes of Sweden (Rise Viktoria).
