London – For the duration of London Design Festival, futures studio FranklinTill will be exploring the complexities of navigating sustainable design through a series of dynamic talks, exhibitions, workshops and key collaborations.
The Guilt Free Space, a pop-up in the Brompton Design District, aims to appease human’s increasing social and environmental conscience through material and design innovation. Visitors to the space are encouraged to define their own environmental concerns and create activist posters and graphics at an on-site workshop.
Its Brands with Purpose panel discussion on Friday 21 September will decipher how organisations can help consumers to navigate today’s complex sustainable agenda without greenwashing or creating distrust, while fashion designer Bethany Williams will host a workshop allowing guests to collectively weave their own ‘social fabric’ using discarded materials from Hachette UK book publishers.
Tapping into our macrotrend Whole-system Thinking, brands have the power to alter the trajectory of how we design, make and consume products, with The Guilt Free Space guiding visitors towards a more circular approach.
