In recent years major companies such as Philips, H&M and Google have adopted a circular economy agenda to promote sustainability. Design con- sultancies such as IDEO has developed and promoted a circular design guide to help companies in this endeavour. However, designing for a circular economy often require design and reconfiguration of entire value chains – making the transition towards a circular economy rather difficult. In this paper we analyse a development project from the Danish island of Bornholm to investigate how to align diverse actors across the value chain in a process of co-creating systems for a circular economy. We combine design, value chain considerations and cir- cular economy mindsets to shed light on how negotiations of concerns among actors in the value chain can be staged and facilitated as an infrastructuring pro- cess with the aim of designing networks rather than objects.
