Special Projects

We work on innovation issues through design and on distributed, local and sustainable manufacturing systems.

On this page we collect all the jobs and projects that draw inspiration from distributed manufacturing and from the pattern of interaction between design and new production strategies. It is also about how to enable designers and business community that collaborate on the Km Zero Design platform.
