Make tomorrow’s products from today’s waste, as part of our celebration of sustainable societies. You’ll join Dan Dicker and discover how he used circular design principles to create the rCUP, a reusable coffee cup made from recycled paper cups. Then you’ll use iPad and the Procreate app to brainstorm ideas for a new product using recycled waste materials. Bring a device or we’ll provide one.


Circular Product Design

rCUP is the UK’s first reusable coffee cup made from recycled paper cups. Created by former Dyson designer Dan Dicker and his company ashortwalk, the design is leakproof, recyclable and made to last 10 years.
