Quasar Lab

A new epicenter of creativity

When man dreams or invents, he expresses the part of himself closest to the divine. However, human creativity, as well as design inspiration, is inextricably linked to matter: to the different possibilities of shaping and structuring it into a form.

Idea, form and material: the synthesis of this triptych of planning can be found in the Quasar-Lab.

Quasar Lab

This brand new laboratory provides teachers and students with various types of 3D printers, laser engravers, UV printers, 3D scanners, numerically controlled milling machines, thermoformers, and an equipped bench for electronic and robotic processing.

Several products made in this workshop-laboratory have been able to stand out for their innovativeness and manufacturing quality in the most important events dedicated to design, such as Maker Faire, Milan Design Week, Wave Market, Edit Napoli and Excellence.

The workshop-laboratory products can be purchased on our e-commerce
