19h00 Designer & Fablabs - Discussion avec Salopette Studio

What can fablabs mean for designers from a technical point of view, for the development of ideas and projects and in terms of collaboration?
Salopette Studio is an innovative and sustainable design agency founded by a French-Belgian duo based in Kortrijk: Martin Ripoche and Gautier Grouselle. Both are always looking for new materials and new ways to transform them. They will share their experiences and help us understand the benefits of fablabs, those places of exchange and experimentation, the extra spaces that foster the development of projects.

This conversation will be moderated by David Ferron, Project Manager Future Design & Industry and host of Clubimpression3D - CCI Grand Lille.
