3 Circular Practices from our Workshop

Circular Design is great! And at Mifactori we also use Circular Practices in our workflows. For example:

  • We use palm-leave tablets to  keeping nuts and bolts together but make them openly available for the creative prototyping process.
  • We store nuts and bolts in glass (not plastic) containers in our prototyping kit, to have them together while make transparent to us, what is inside the container.
  • We use reusable straps instead of foil or tape to keep resources together.

If you zoom into the image you’ll see small screws for wood. We never use those because we do not consider them as very circular. We just freed a wooden box from the ones you see in this image.

And of course. Prototyping with circular stuff helps is much cheaper cause you – or in the realm where we are prototyping – we can reuse everything in ongoing iterations.
