NEWCRAFT. Auch die Mass Customization definiert sich in der Tat als handwerkliche Fertigung im Gegensatz zur industriellen Produktion.


Doch ein Grundwiderspruch besteht hier nach wie vor in dem Versuch, nicht nur maßgeschneiderte sondern auch ästhetisch individualisierte Produkte massenweise zu produzieren. Dagegen kann man leicht sagen, dass individuelle Produkte auch individuell zu fertigen sein sollten. Minimalist Henri Stool Furniture with Scandinavian and Japanese Style by Alexandre Reignier.

Our Project

Our vision is to create a place where efficiency meets elegance. We have designed a new type of retail space around the idea of the open workshop.

We believe that efficiency is not simply a matter of scale. Designing an elegant Process We design our working environment with the same care as our products.

Our drive comes from operating in a workshop open to the scrutiny of the public. Events & Trade – Karton Cardboard Furniture. Bump in and Bump out made easy.

The advantage and disadvantage of laser-cutting machines is their naturally flat products: in most cases, they inevitably produce a 2D result. Fortunately, flat-pack cardboard, plywood and sheet metal designers have been figuring out ways for decades to make sturdy furniture objects that save on space and materials and start with fully flat parts. In theory, the software should also keep you from making serious structural errors – a short-cut strategy to teach you what most furniture makers take decades to learn and integrate into their design/build intuition.
