In this episode we speak to Jonathan Chapman, professor of Sustainable Design and Director of Design Research Initiatives at the University of Brighton (UK).
Best known for his concepts of emotional durability in design, Professor Chapman's work seeks to reveal the behavioural phenomena that shape patterns of consumption and waste. His research into sustainable design – and product life extension in particular – has advanced product design and business thinking in a range of settings, from Sony, Puma and Philips to the House of Lords and the UN.
