Watch our Good Design for a Bad World talk about carbon at Dutch Design Week 2021

Dezeen teamed up with Dutch Design Week to host a live talk about how designers and architects can help remove carbon from the atmosphere.

This special edition of Dezeen’s Good Design for a Bad World talks series looked at ways of tackling climate change including carbon-capturing materials, net-zero cities and alternatives to fossil fuels.

An estimated 40 per cent of global carbon emissions stem from buildings and infrastructure, which makes the built environment one of the largest contributors to global warming.

Titled Good Design for a Bad World: Carbon, the talk explored the various ways that architects are trying to achieve net-zero developments and offer sustainable alternatives.

Taking place ahead of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow in November, the talk built on Dezeen’s pioneering carbon revolution editorial series, which explored ways of capturing atmospheric carbon and putting it to use on earth.

Dezeen’s founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs moderated … Read more

Best wok 2021: for speedy stir-fries and healthy meals

The best wok will come with an unique bowl-shaped design that can be used to cook large servings all in one go.

Some of the best woks in our guide come with non-stick coating and dishwasher-safe designs for a less traditional, but more convenient, day-to-day use. Traditionally though, woks will come with a classic carbon steel design that can be seasoned over time to add flavour and char to your meals with every use. 

Unlike many of the best saucepan sets, a wok will have a narrower base and a wider rim. This will allow heat … Read more
