CAN DESIGN OFFER A WAY OUT OF THE ECOLOGICAL CRISIS AND HELP SOLVE CLIMATE CHALLENGES?
Circular industrial designer and innovator Elin Basander André is convinced of that.
In collaboration with scientists, engineers, technicians, artists, robots and customers, she creates strong teams.
Her teams develop new materials and products from residual streams from agriculture, food waste and the furniture industry.
"Together we take on the task of developing sustainable solutions to difficult dilemmas. We use design and innovation as a mean to solve today’s climate challenges."
