Circular Design Exhibition: 
Designing For Disassembly

The exhibition highlights a furniture collection rooted in circular design principles, emphasizing ease of disassembly and community empowerment. Each student designed a single-person stool, utilizing simple fabrication techniques that allow for the use of accessible dimensional lumber and basic tools. This approach not only fosters inclusivity but also promotes sustainable living by encouraging the reuse and recycling of materials. 

Join us opening night in celebrating a vision where furniture design can be a catalyst for community empowerment and environmental sustainability.

Design as a tool 

for positive change

We actively share our research and design explorations with the community through dynamic workshops and exhibitions. By incorporating design into hands-on activities and activations, we introduce the concept of the circular economy in a way that is accessible and easily understandable for everyone in our community – from individuals to businesses and organizations.


From theory to fabrication the lab aims to empower communities by fostering creative confidence and ideas by learning through hands-on making. The creative collective facilitates a variety workshops to teach our community about circular ways of creating by addressing our current linear economy with alternative sustainable methods of making. 


Accessible to all, our exhibitions serve as a continuation of our ongoing research and diverse collaborations with individuals, businesses, and organizations. These exhibitions are open to the public, providing a platform to showcase the insights and discoveries of the lab.
