Copenhagen Maker Festival presents The Distributed Design Market

At Copenhagen Maker Festival we want to dive into the potentials of Distributed Design

Creative talents and inspiring designs of Copenhagen

Creative talents of Copenhagen and inspiring designs at the Copenhagen Maker Festival 2018!

A distributed design approach enables new types of designers and emerging local markets all connected to a global marketplace of digital platforms, manufacturing spaces, and skilled makers.

In May Copenhagen Maker called local designers and makers to apply with their creative ideas, designs and products related to distribution.

Out of more than 25 individual and talented applications 10 designers were chosen to realize their projects with a production residency at fablab Underbroen and to showcase them at the Copenhagen Maker Festival in September 2018.

During one month each of the residents got the possibility to work on its own design, manufacture and finalize his or her product with the support of the manufacturing facilities of fablab Underbroen as well as the feedback from the creative community on prototypes and final products.


Work in progress


At Fablab Underbroen

The Distributed Design Market at Copenhagen Maker Festival presents the 10 final prototypes, which are reflecting distributable, reproducible and valuable design.

All designs are manufactured with the availability of local materials and hardware, while they can travel globally. Furthermore they present solutions to design challenges on a societal level and are creating value for individual people, companies and our society.
