The ten Egyptian young furniture designers are on a week-long study trip in Copenhagen as part of DEDI’s Design for Circularity program – in collaboration with the Royal Danish Academy, Designdustry and Pinocchio Furniture. The program brings together these designers with Danish Master’s students enrolled in the ‘Furniture Design – Products, Materials and Contexts’ course at the academy to be immersed in both Danish and Egyptian design traditions to inspire them in their own designs of a stool which will be produced throughout the project. In its fourth iteration, the program this year is taking on a new challenge: to create their designs according to the principles of circularity.
How can we transform an industry plagued with a massive carbon footprint into one that inspires people without harming the environment? The 23 Danish and Egyptian green fashion designers, entrepreneurs and students explore this question together in Copenhagen.
After four successful rounds of Bilingual Design – bringing Egyptian and Danish designers together to design and produce furniture, this year we are excited to announce that the project is taking on a new challenge which is to focus on Design for Circularity. Meet the participants here.
DEDI Green Gate aims to be part of exploring and promoting solutions through dialogue between Egyptian and Danish designers, entrepreneurs, professionals, researchers, and students working in the fashion field and concerned with a more sustainable approach to fashion.
