Final Year Project
A SUSTAINABLE RANGE OF FURNITURE
Adonis is a sustainable range of furniture items designed with accordance to the concept of circular economy and is targeted towards the millennial generation. The user will be able to assemble the products without the need of any tools and the range will be part of a renting service which conveniently allows the user to receive them through standard courier services.
The three stages of the circular loop are-
Make: Use recycled plastic and Dematerialise (1) to reduce the overall size and number of materials, introduce Modularity (2) to the design and plan the Lifecycle (3) to reduce the environmental impact of product.
Use: Create a Service system (4) to rent the product, look after the product to increase Longevity (5), and Repair damaged material (6) instead of discarding it.
Re-Use: Use modular design to Disassemble (7) the product to ensure only damaged part is recycled, disintegrate the material to Remanufacture (8), and Recycle (9) material for new products.
