Did you know that the global furniture industry is a serious threat to our planet? In the Netherlands alone, 247 million KG of furniture waste is thrown away and incinerated annually. Only 10% of this huge amount is recycled.
Kairos has decided that it’s time for a change. They’ve developed an exceptionally sustainable sofa that is modular and therefore designed to last a lifetime. During Le Guess Who?, they are collaborating with entrepreneurs to explore how best to convey their mission. Will you join them in this endeavor?

Up to 85% of the waste generated in (semi)public spaces could be recycled if waste separation at the source were done correctly. Unfortunately, this rarely happens, resulting in valuable resources being partially incinerated or landfilled as waste. This leads to more CO2 emissions, fewer recycling options, and increased costs.
Sealed Cycle offers a solution to this problem: a waste bin that autonomously separates waste using AI technology. Visitors at Tivoli can test the user-friendliness of this bin and provide feedback. Come throw away your waste and make an impact!

The cocoa trade is far from transparent, with too many intermediaries between the producer and the consumer. As a result, chocolate becomes a generic product with its taste minimized to ‘just’ sweet or bitter, often associated with numerous injustices such as child labor, slavery, exploitation, deforestation, and more. Mesjokke wants to do things differently: they only source unique cocoa varieties, where the flavor depends on the country of origin, soil type, and cocoa fermentation method.
They pay a fair price for this cocoa and ensure they know where it comes from and that it’s produced under fair conditions. During Le Guess Who? visitors can try this exceptional chocolate. Will you drop by for a taste?
