We know we need to distance ourselves from the take-make-waste economy – but how? The “Circular textiles” continuing education course is being offered as part of the FHNW’s Circular Design Processes and Practices initiative.

It is directed at practising designers from all design fields. The first part of the course is a problem-oriented and critical introduction to the foundations and principles of the circular economy. In the second part, participants review previous projects in workshops and thus learn about the use and limitations of life cycle assessment methods with which they can analyse environmental impact and energy efficiency. In the third part, participants use speculative design methods to develop innovative design solutions and new business models based on the results of the analysis. The continuing education course concludes with a final critique of the proposals that have been developed.

Institute Contemporary Design Practices (ICDP)

The Institute of Contemporary Design Practices (ICDP) works at the intersection of education, research, knowledge production, and design mediation. It encompasses three fields of study: Fashion Design, Industrial Design, and Interior Design & Scenography and offers students, researchers and staff from various disciplines a lively, creative environment to explore and mediate contemporary, reflective design practices.
