UPM is partnering with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, to explore and unlock the power of renewable circularity.
UAL x UPM – Prototype a fossil-free future together
This partnership aims to trigger a reappraisal of how multiple industries can make the urgent shift to renewable circularity – using less, sourcing from renewable sources, and ensuring products remain in the value chain after their useful life.
To kick off the project, a team of 50 Product and Industrial Design students from Central Saint Martins have been tasked to reimagine a range of everyday products that can be made from renewable, circular materials.
These products will be exhibited at Design Transforms as part of the London Design Festival 2023.
The 14 exceptional judges working with us
As part of our partnership with Central Saint Martins, University of The Arts London, the designs were evaluated by a diverse panel of expert judges for their design quality, contribution to renewable circularity, commercial viability and their potential to disrupt conventional thinking in multiple industries. Meet the 14 judges who played a significant role in shaping this revolutionary showcase.
