The contribution explores the intersection of Additive Manufacturing processes and Circular Economy principles, aiming to leverage design interventions for sustainable socio-technical changes. It employs the Issue-Concept-Form model to qualitatively analyze five case studies and their AM adoption implications on various scales, including social, cultural, ecological, and technological aspects. Findings focused on environmental impact assessments, systemic-thinking mindsets, stakeholder involvement in design processes and standardization of circular materials for sustainable AM strategies, contribute to informing intentional design practices for circular systems. Despite examining a limited number of cases to test the method for meta-knowledge extrapolation, a starting point for expanding specific research areas, such as investigating certain levels more in-depth is provided, paving the way for further exploration and development in sustainable design practices.

Abstract

The contribution explores the intersection of Additive Manufacturing processes and Circular Economy principles, aiming to leverage design interventions for sustainable socio-technical changes. It employs the Issue-Concept-Form model to qualitatively analyze five case studies and their AM adoption implications on various scales, including social, cultural, ecological, and technological aspects. Findings focused on environmental impact assessments, systemic-thinking mindsets, stakeholder involvement in design processes and standardization of circular materials for sustainable AM strategies, contribute to informing intentional design practices for circular systems. Despite examining a limited number of cases to test the method for meta-knowledge extrapolation, a starting point for expanding specific research areas, such as investigating certain levels more in-depth is provided, paving the way for further exploration and development in sustainable design practices.
