Sustainability and global innovation are two imperative key words in Howest’s mission.
Design for Impact introduces a new focus: an innovation in a local community can be at the basis of global innovation and sustainable progress. Howest Industrial Design Center increasingly cooperates with organizations (profit and not-for-profit) and NGOs, which are active in the South.
From Product Design, we jointly search for innovative and sustainable solutions for the local needs and challenges. From trash to cash from waste material in the Philippines to innovative tailor-made beehives for Ethiopia.
