Chair, o2 Global Network Foundation; Owner, Paradigm-Shifts Design & Communication
I am chair of the o2 Global Network Foundation and an independent sustainable designer and researcher. I am currently an MA Design Research candidate at the University of the Arts, Berne (University of Applied Sciences). My research focus is on creating value-added products (specifically textiles and building materials) from regional natural fibers and agricultural materials (wool, flax, hemp and nettles) through inter-disciplinary collaboration among designers, architects, agronomists and engineers, to help catalyze innovation for the transition to economically, socially and ecologically resilient and regenerative regional circular economies. My work is currently focused in Switzerland but can be applied to other regions.
