the Ecology of Things

ECOLOGY of THINGS At the Dutch Design Week we had the DRIVE-CIRCO Festival. It is 'Design for Circular Business' and the response was great.

Ecology of Things, Column

Waste is food

In this column I introduce a new way of thinking about products dawning: the Ecology of Things. Design is the key to realization. In living systems all materials, all elements, all minerals are being used and re-used because they stay in the loop. That is the metabolism of life. In the Ecology of Things we acknowledge the power of ‘waste is food’ also on a higher value-level: products are feedstock for new products even before they become waste.
