The 4th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

The handwriting lamp

EL Fabspace, Tunis  -  Tunisia

This creation was born when young people from districts of Tunis and other regions met craftspeople and an artist at the FabLab. A joint brainstorming of the poetic concept of street words was turned into artistic production through design and prototyping work. The team then used digital fabrication machines (laser cutters and 3D printers) and recycled wood to produce their pieces. The poetry created by the illuminated Arabic words has encouraged the team to suggest producing lamps conducive to peace and reflection for public spaces.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

Since 2015, we have offered free training in our Solidarity FabLabs to young people leading difficult lives. In the FabLabs they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps a future trade. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It allows them to use our FabLabs to develop a project from A to Z and show everything they are capable of doing today. This year, it is all about using digital technology to devise and produce creations for the worlds of fashion, design and the arts.
