Core activity: workshops to prototype and test new lifestyles
Governance model: company
Patterns of Commoning:
How can products or services be designed in such a way, that everything that involves its use, happens within the planetary boundaries?
How can circular modes of consumption and production be put into practice, and eventually become more widespread?
Can sunglasses, for instance, be produced on a local scale with re-used plastics?
Esferica explores these kind of questions, and tries to rethink the way we create and consume products in today’s society.
Marc, entrepreneur of Esfèrica, hopes to get insights into circular, local and decentralized production, and to develop sustainable business models for it.
Mercè, process designer, explains how Esferica is testing these new lifestyles, and prototyping a "proof of concept".
She believes that, eventually, they can influence and transform mainstream ways of production and consumption.
She puts her hope in local entrepreneurs who come up with new ideas to build a zero waste economy.
She stresses however that the focus should be on avoiding waste in the first place, rather than reusing it.
