Lacq Odyssée, Mourenx - France
These original creations are the work of a group of young people who are not in education or training. The FabLab allowed them to put their ideas into practice, and then to consider marketing: mood boards, 2D and 3D design, 3D printing, cutting, and prototyping of original creations. Today the team is working on a business model and on marketing with a view to some initial manufacturing runs. Each of these young creators is also making plans to sell their lamps online.

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.
