Circular Design is an emerging field of design where products and services are intentionally designed to create zero wastes. In December 2018, I was one of the 6 South East Asian designers invited by British Council UK team to London to pioneer their Circular Futures Lab programme.
Following this programme, I have started a series of community workshops called " MateriOh! - Community as Biomaterial Designers " to inspire participants in Vietnam to come up with their own sustainable materials using local resources. In addition, I also created a Facebook group named Circular Design Vietnam to share inspirations and news around circular materials.
