- Product designers have an important role to play in the field of eco-design due to their position at the initial stage of the product development process (PDP) where the design brief is the most important decision to be taken. The aim of this paper is to develop a framework to guide designers in integrating eco-design strategies within the framework of design thinking. Building on the Stanford Design Thinking Framework, a list of product design strategies is put in place to achieve better eco-design outcomes. The framework is based on a case study designing children’s furniture for the Lentera Harapan School in Rote. As Rote is far from the location of the designer. Eco-design strategies are appropriate for this project, as the design needs to be very efficient in order to compensate for the logistic effort needed to deliver the furniture to Rote. The results of the study are children’s furniture designed for LSH Rote ‘s school, which incorporates eco-design strategies within the framework of design thinking. The furniture is efficient as each piece is standardized, the waste materials are used to make children’s educational toys, the chair is stackable, and the table can be disassembled for efficient shipping. The furniture used by the MDF board and the metal frame, in which both materials can be repaired at the Rote workshop.
