FABLAB methodology

At Artifex we think that the idea of ​​a manufacturing laboratory is excellent (gathering intelligent people with a vision) but we do not see much room to a scheme of acquisition of sophisticated machinery of rapid obsolescence. Therefore, we retain the basic idea (intelligent people + vision) but we eliminate high-tech in favor of our usual lowtech, that is, with an appropriate technology approach. The Artifex Fablab is a space for continuous training where local materials and resources are used to built, create and cultivate, and where recycling, holistic vision and lateral thinking merges with regenerative design.
