The Beneficial Design Institute stands for a positive cultural change that combines quality, innovation and beauty with sustainability in a global context.

With our holistic approach of closed loops (Closed Loop and Circular Design Systems) in the sense of the Cradle to Cradle philosophy, we combine artistic and scientific theory with practice. We research, develop and test holistic innovation concepts, design fashion, textiles and products from prototypes to series production, consult and conceptualize. We also see ourselves as networkers and multipliers and give impulses for teaching and further education.
