Fatconomy and the Uncharted Future of Fats


Take a look at our latest project, Fatconomy: The Uncharted Future of Fat, to understand how, through research, workshops, films and prototyping, we have managed to reposition a maligned material like waste fat into an engaging narrative to challenge and propose future economies, cottage industries, just energy transitions and resource management.


Drawing on diverse design approaches, our field research, mapping and social dreaming methodologies underpin our interdisciplinary practice. We don’t believe in silo-thinking, and our projects are characterised as much by results as by the lasting partnerships we create.
