"Fairphone" talk

FAIRPHONE is a social enterprise that is building a movement for fairer electronics. By making a phone, we’re opening up the supply chain and creating new relationships between people and their products. We are making a positive impact across the value chain of fair-trade materials, long-lasting design, good functioning and reuse and recycling, while expanding the market for products that put ethical values first. Together with our community, we are changing the way products are made.


Miquel Ballester is lead of circular innovation at Fairphone. After graduating in Industrial Design

This proposal aims to project interactive images onto a dust cloud. ... mimicking birds, humans become angels ... abstract When a visitor enters the area covered by a kinect sensor, the wings follow the movement of his arms in real time. His own winged image is projected in the dust cloud. The sound...

Talk: ‘Collaborative Design of a Transparent and Inclusive Economy of Abundance’

Marcin Jakubowski, Ph.D., Founder, Executive Director. Marcin Jakubowski is the founder of Open Source Ecology, an open collaborative of engineers, producers, and builders developing the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS). The GVCS is a set of 50 most important machines that it takes for modern life to exist – everything from a tractor, to an oven, to a circuit maker. Marcin and his team are producing open source blueprints – so that anyone can build and maintain machines at a fraction of what it costs today. His goal is to create a life size LEGO set of powerful, self-replicating

Taller ELECTRONICS UNCHAINED: FAIRPHONE'S URBAN MINING WORKSHOP

Cell phones are full of different metals. In particular copper, aluminum, iron and nickel, but also gold, silver, tantalum, mercury, lead and a few dozen other ones.

Miquel Ballester, Co-founder and resource efficiency manager at Fairphone will facilitate this workshop and explain how Fairphone is addressing, tackling and solving one step at a time the problems related to the responsible sourcing of this materials, as well as how to reuse and recycle them. Through this interactive workshops you will learn more about the topic in an interactive way and  get to know your phones from the inside.

Taller ‘Getting Real: Collaborative Design of Open Source Products’

In the workshop, Marcin Jakubowski will involve an audience in an exploration of applying open source principles to the design of real, economically significant products. Open source has so far dominated the world of software, and in this workshop, we will explore the limits of open source in hardware - ie - the collaborative design of open source products that are otherwise currently designed in a proprietary framework by corporations. We will ask what are the barriers to, and the requirements for - a methodology where product design effort is socialized for the benefit of everyone? What

Taller: Club de la lectura Papanek

Nos acercaremos a la figura de Victor Papanek, a través de un texto poco conocido: una breve presentación titulada «Twelve Methodologies for Design – Because People Count» que nos servirá como elemento de partida para conocer más al autor, para reflexionar sobre la validez, en la actualidad, de sus ideas y para generar conjuntamente una declaración de intenciones sobre cómo nos gustaría que fuera el diseño en el futuro más inmediato.

El taller se dividirá en dos sesiones. En la primera, hablaremos de Victor Papanek y su contexto y comenzaremos la lectura. En la segunda, comentaremos de manera
