IKEA has released an online interactive circular product design tool to inspire, engage and accelerate the movement towards a circular economy. IKEA is on the journey to design all products with built-in circular capabilities by 2030, and by sharing their methodology and insights, they hope to engage other designers to do the same. After assessing over 9,500 products, their insights and methodology have altogether been summarized into the circular blueprint and are shared through an online interactive tool.
When using the tool, users can measure different product types for their circular capabilities. This is done by answering questions about the different aspects of circular design and at the end, the user receives an approximate score for how circular their product is.
