Oksana Bondar


Oksana Bondar’s work is concerned with the concepts of circular economy, which is interpreted by Ellen Macarthur Foundation as one that is restorative and regenerative by design as opposed to the current “take, make and dispose” industrial model. Through her practice, Oksana engages with socio-economic and political challenges in the areas of consumption, manufacture, refuse management and localisation. The above is implemented through her research into such regenerative materials as natural fibres, raw matter recovered from industrial and residential waste, bioplastics as well as studio practice that involves applying circular design thinking principles that are discussed in the Circular Design Guide by IDEO and Cradle-to-Cradle methodology.
