TED's Ten:2 - Design for Cyclability

This strategy explains how when you design for cyclability, the thought process is very different, but totally connected to, the practice of recycling textiles.

Design for upcycling is about "not merely conserving the resources that went into the production of particular materials, but adding to the value embodied in them by the application of knowledge in the course of their recirculation" (Murray, 2002)


  • Design for recycling / upcycling
  • Design for mono materiality
  • Design for disassembly for the closed-loop systems of the future
  • Think re-useable/non-invasive installation or renewal
