For all of us interested in the role of furniture and its impact in our environment, there will be a fantastic free event that will address the relationship between furniture, the environment, and human resources.

As NYC begins to re-emerge, what is the role of design in a new future? How do we fully incorporate sustainability, health and equity? Highlighting furniture design, this session will explore initiatives that are reimagining how we approach material and human resources.

Bringing together a designer/educator, a nonprofit changemaker, an artist/furniture maker, and a reclaimed/circular furniture campaign, we’ll explore sustainable solutions right in our NYC backyard. These initiatives — from creative reuse of materials to combining craft with rethinking criminal justice — seek to reinvent the way we design and produce.

Speakers:

-Jonsara Ruth, Parsons Healthy Materials Lab and Salty Labs

-Tommy Safian, Refoundry

-Sabrina Merayo Nunez, Lunfarda Studio

-Mona Chun, mebl | Transforming Furniture

This webinar is co-sponsored by mebl | Transforming Furniture and Parsons Healthy Materials Lab.
