OS Economy

Within the project funded by VLAIO, promoting innovation & entrepreneurship in Flanders, the OpenStructures model is adopted by two manufacturing companies within their practice of production, sales and (reversible) distribution. Atelier Ternier & Vivalyte will go through the full chain from design to production and offer products through alternative business models. In doing so, lessons are learned about optimisation of collaboration and logistics within the system, and how circular design can be integrated faster within the manufacturing sector. The expected impact with large-scale implementation is a drastic reduction in materials usage by life cycle extension through circular & modular design.
