Circularity for designers and architects

Two billion people will move to global cities by 2050. One of the greatest opportunities –and challenges–the planet has ever faced. This puts architects and designers in a position of great power: by embracing circular economy principles, they can lead the way in finding a new, sustainable way forward.

Action is needed now. Over the next 40 years the world will face a demand for building over 2.5 trillion square feet of new space — or equivalent to a new New York City every month. Already, nearly half of greenhouse gas emissions come from the built environment.

The architects and designers who use Solid Textile Board and Acoustic Textile Felt are creating the momentum for change, today. By creating beautiful, viable interior concepts and furniture with materials made from recycled textiles they are making a strong statement: designing for circularity is a reality now.
