IDEAL&CO at the Dutch Design Week

Many designers are familiar with eco-design, Cradle to Cradle, or biomimicry, and, more recently, circular design. But what are the differences between these design strategies, and how, as a designer, do you know which one to use?

By applying these strategies to one specific design problem, Bram, Ingrid and other experts on these different strategies will answer this question. The results demonstrate that each of these design strategies is different, even though they are all inspired by nature. The different approach and focus of each strategy results in a range of design solutions. For designers, the challenge lies in understanding these differences and choosing the most appropriate strategy for the design problem in question.
