Who We Are
We are a group of Isfahanian young artists and designers and architects, who believe in reshaping our culture and city using new technologies.We launched the first fab lab of our city Isfahan, to create an opportunity to speak out of technology and bring it into our city skin of unique art and crafts and lifestyle.
Our main goals are: To use our knowledge and expertise in using new technologies to create products which solve our local problems e.g. environmental issues. Plus giving our city’s art a new breath of technology and digital fabrication expertise to reshape and reproduce it and transfer Isfahan's art to a new generation of art making with digital technologies.
We based our job on introducing long-term research projects to achieve our long-term goals. Each project is introduced by an expert artist, designer or a technologist who intercommunicate with our fab lab as an independent researcher to find his/her path to reality.
Besides we believe in sharing our knowledge with people and especially new generation, to make them understand the role of making things in our future life. So we use every chance to make workshops and talks and attract citizens into our community.
If you are in Isfahan, you are more than welcome to join us and make a change!
What Is a Fab Lab ?
A fab lab (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale workshop offering (personal) digital fabrication.
A fab lab is typically equipped with an array of flexible computer-controlled tools that cover several different length scales and various materials, with the aim to make "almost anything".
This includes technology-enabled products generally perceived as limited to mass production.
While fab labs have yet to compete with mass production and its associated economies of scale in fabricating widely distributed products, they have already shown the potential to empower individuals to create smart devices for themselves.
These devices can be tailored to local or personal needs in ways that are not practical or economical using mass production.
The fab lab movement is closely aligned with the DIY, the open source hardware and the free and open source movement, and shares philosophy as well as technology with them.
