DESIGN MEETS DIGITAL FABRICATION

Happylab

28.9.–7.10.2018

Happylab is Austria’s first fab lab (fabrication laboratory): the open workshop that’s employed around the world to enable quick realization of ideas with digital production machines. Laser cutters, 3-D printers, and Co. are made available to creatives for simple manufacture of prototypes and short runs. Together with twelve fab labs located across Europe, Happylab is currently working on the Distributed Design Market Platform (DDMP), an online platform for designer products from maker spaces. For the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, a selection of such objects that have been realized with the aid of digital manufacture will be on display at the Festival Headquarters.
