Hosted at the Flokk showroom, Disegno staged a panel discussion centred upon the afterlife of objects, and what strategies might exist to prioritise the design of easily repairable, recyclable and long-lasting products. Beyond responsible production methods and material innovation, what role does the afterlife of objects have in the sustainability debate?
Taking part in the conversation were Caroline Till, co-founder of futures research agency FranklinTill; Ineke Hans, a designer and professor of Design and Social Context at the University of the Arts, Berlin; and Christian Eide Lodgaard, Flokk's senior vice president of products and brands. The conversation was chaired by Disegno's editor-in-chief Oli Stratford.
The discussion took place on 22 May 2019, and Disegno is delighted to announce that an edited film of the event is now available online.
