There is no way of sustaining our current ‘take-make-dispose’ society. My project recognises design as a form of transformative storytelling that has the power to present an alternative future where the man-made world is a balanced system in which materials constantly flow. Megg is a collection of objects made of eggshells that was created to start a conversation about the circular economy and to inspire change. 

My name is Nina and this time I asked myself: “How does nature design?” I found that nature designs in circles. Good design is circular, simple, and FUNctional. I love tackling challenges together with people because I believe that’s where true creation and innovation happen. I was awarded first place for the Young Furniture Makers Design award in 2019 for my Lucy light and am currently exploring the principles of the circular economy by looking at food waste as a valuable resource and material.
