Lifestyle & Design Cluster: Annual Furniture Seminar 2023

Date: November 8th
Time: 9.30 - 16.00
Location: Det Kongelige Akademi, Philip de Langes Alle 10, 1435 København K, Denmark

Event organized by Lifestyle & Design Cluster.

In Denmark, our resource consumption is significantly above average, both when compared to EU countries and globally. This has significant consequences for the climate, and we need to examine the CO2 emissions of design products. This is where circularity in terms of economics, production, and consumption comes into play.

This year’s Furniture Seminar at the Royal Academy looks at circularity in a broader context and its implications for the furniture industry. The Circularity Gap Report 2023 has just been released, and it will be introduced and discussed on November 8th.

The day also focuses attention on two of the more criticized materials used in the furniture industry: plastic and foam for upholstery. Through presentations, we will explore how these materials can be used responsibly in the future.

This event is FREE.
