Situated within the interaction design and Human-Computer Interaction spaces, this design­ led research is concerned with the development of ongoing creative and adaptable approaches towards everyday sustainability. Grounded in the theoretical concepts of "design futuring" and "undesign", this research builds upon past design interventions, contextual examples, design philosophy and literature, and adopts a Research through Design approach.
