November 2019

On November 26th our administrator Gabriele Garzitto and the sales manager Dino Del Mistro, representing La.So.le. Est, they met the arch. Andrea Boscolo, one of the founders and managers of the FabLab Venice, a prominent start-up within the Science and Technology Park of Venice.
La.So.le Est, very active in the R&D sector, aims to create synergies with companies like this, aimed at designers and creative companies to develop networked projects through institutional and cultural channels.

The work of the Venetian laboratory is already known internationally having collaborated with several foreign artists, without neglecting the possibility of participating in financed research bids and projects. The FabLab staff has expressed great pleasure in knowing a reality of such great quality and value, and having identified a commonality of intent that will certainly be applied in future bids and collaborations.

The meeting was sealed with the signing of participation in a tender by the Veneto Region, aimed at finding innovative solutions and materials for the living - circular economy - enabling technologies and green building, in which La.So.le Est appears as a business partner.

Conifera – COSxMamou-Mani – Fuorisalone 2019
Conifera is an installation composed of 700 blocks of bioplastic printed in 3d, designed by the Italo-French architect Arthur Mamou-Mani for the COS brand. For two months, the implementation involved 4 digital fabrication laboratories, part of the innovative Wasp Hub international network: in addition to the Fab.Pub of Mamou-Mani, the FabLab (VE), Superforma (MI) and Design for Craft (MA) .
The installation is the largest ever made entirely in bioplastic and is designed to enter into dialogue with the environments of the seventeenth-century Palazzo Isimbardi, light and monumental, suspended between natural and artificial technology and craftsmanship.
