WORTH Project awarded to
Studio Bas Froon and A+Z Design
When digital manufacturing will meet high-end handcraft: unique interior products
We are very excited that this week our project proposal has been awarded by the WORTH Partnership Project 2018! After a great first weekend in Madrid where we presented and discussed the project with the Steering Committee, we will work on this project during 2018. By crossing our respective skills in digital in-house manufacturing with our different sustainable design approaches, we will introduce a new way of creating objects. A design and prototype for an interior object will follow … work on progress to be seen soon (…we are not going to tell you yet 😉 ).
