On the initiative of the designer, they decided to make use of the offcuts from one of their other products in a new design and the stool “Lilla Snåland” was born.
The newly started company Fabric Forest, who make textiles with wood as its core material, works with Marie-Louise Hellgren developing the same principles – where circular design and early involvement of creative design thinking helps develop products and material, in line with the idea of sustainable use of products as well as resources.
The seminar invites you to join in on a conversation on Circular design, Upcycling and the design methods used to develop the concepts around “waste is not waste until you waste it” – a model stated by Marie-Louise Hellgren as a base-line for all her work and collaborations.
