Scope of the Subject

In light of the current environmental and ecological crisis, our needs as users, but also the infrastructures and systems that are shaping the world have to change. Constant growth and availability need to be reset to a circular process instead of a linear one, (re)adapting to natural resources and capacities. New products and solutions need to bear the genes of sustainability from the beginning: built to last and designed to remain.

If there is a company truly committed with the environment, has the sustainable values in its core and is leading the strategy in this field, it is VITRA.

In this workshop format, you will learn how to respond to the global environmental challenge by providing design solutions that are future proof, sustainable AND timeless.
