Peter Post, UX-Designer and Managing Director of German Digital Agency Scholz & Volkmer presents a conceptual study of a digital circular experience on the example of how bicycle owners can be digitally supported in making the usage cycle long and preserving the value of the bikes.
Design for the Circular Economy mainly focusses on product-design, materials and processes. However, also the customer will have a pivotal role in making the circular economy work. Circular Experience design therefor focusses on the users, to help them with their new roles and tasks.
