BIG PICTURE

We believe that digital fabrication and generative design will disrupt the way we create and manufacture.

In fact, the future has already arrived. What matters is not the static end product, but WHY, HOW and for WHOM we make it.

The technology is incorporated into our lives though digital communication systems and portable devices.

Tomorrow’s tech is invisible, screenless and without wires - inevitably integrated into our natural environment and bodies.
