Organising and moderating breakout session: Resource Driven Design, with 4 presentations and discussion and Q&A. Circular value creation with used products and materials What can design do to retain the circular value of waste materials? In this session we will explore where and how using wasted resources and circular design strategies meet. Together with Ahrend and Starbucks, interior products are being designed using their textile waste. And old stadium seats of Amsterdam ArenA are turned into collector's items by Amsterdam based designers. The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and partners will present insights gained from these projects and show how waste materials can be turned into circular products and new business opportunities. They will share their considerations when using discarded products and materials for new circular designs. Join in and discuss this with them. Speakers: Niki Schoondergang, Boudewijn van den Bosch, Kees de Boer, Mark Lepelaar, Inge Oskam. Moderator: Inge Oskam
