Closed loop design

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.
