We’ve got a sneak preview of the Green Design Hub at Decor + Design 2023, 13 – 16 July at Melbourne Exhibition Centre – and it’s going to look amazing!

Curated by Circular Design Thinking (CDT), it will take visitors on a deep exploration of what sustainability in the design industry truly looks like. It will also feature beautiful sustainable products available to the industry right now, from brands including Armadillo, Cultivated by Cult Design, Hameland, E9 Design, AH Beard, Zepel, ResiLoop, TRAKS Textile Recycling, Cosentino, Enviro Hide and more.

Led by Karie Soehardi, the team at CDT are currently curating the Green Design Hub with the end in mind. The stand will be created to be dismantled easily, with componentry that’s reused, recycled or upcycled. Materials and waste will be tracked as the stand is assembled and the waste documented. All information will be available to visitors. Each piece in the GDH carefully-curated space is being delivered carbon neutral to the show, elevating the need for products to be specified as such in the real world.

Be Inspired by Stunning, Innovative Products

The Green Design Hub will showcase local and international brand owners and manufacturers who care about how they create and take responsibility for their wares. GDH will also take designers on a journey of the product life-cycle from concept stage to end-of-life, sharing information with the designers about innovation, recycling, digital product passports and other accountabilities in the environmental sphere.

CDT will hold small talks on the stand about carbon terminology, ESG, the importance of design – elevating designers’ confidence in specifying ‘sustainability’ as our industry changes.

All of this will be covered in a stunning and sensory experience that inspires aesthetically whilst creating a model for our industry to replicate as we shift from linear production models to that of Circularity.
