Interior Design And The Circular Economy

In this episode, we explore interior design and the circular economy with Jules Haines from The Haines Collection and Chaline Church from 540 World. In 2018, a major study concluded that the world was only 9% circular with more than 90% of raw materials not being cycled back into the economy. Clearly, for the health of the planet and the survival of the human race, we must become more sustainable and resource-resilient. But how will this new thinking impact the sourcing and use of materials in the construction industry? How can interior designers embed circularity into their approach to design?

Diversity In Interior Design

The recent horrific killing of George Floyd in the US and the worldwide protests that followed have sparked a long overdue discussion in the UK about the lack of opportunities afforded to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people in every aspect of their lives, including their careers.

And, what should be done to address these issues? We're joined by Design Career Consultant, Simon Hamilton, and Charmaine White of The White House Interiors to explore diversity in interior design.
