Is open source hardware a solution towards a more circular economy?
Event I: Live CNC Milling of Circular Designs.
In this event we would like to challenge all designers and creatives to find a solution for this leftover space.
In 2020 Fiction Factory joined the OPEN|NEXT pilot together with Waag. The goal is to find an open source hardware solution for our biggest waste stream: wood. Every day we use many sheets of plywood on our CNC machines. We mill out the needed shapes and the leftover space is considered waste. However we think that we should use this space to mill out useful objects. But here is the challenge: the leftover spaces on the sheets are often odd shapes and whát product should we make?
Event II : Panel Discussion with Industry Players and Experts
In addition Fiction Factory organizes a Feedback Panel Discussion on the same day -> Feb 4th at 17.30 – 19.30. See for more information: https://www.fictionfactory.nl/rethink/feedbackpaneldiscussion
