We recycled cardboard picked up from the street to make the first iteration of packaging for twistab using laser cutting and engraving. We kept the rubber band idea that came up last year collaborating with Eva Arias and that we have been using since. (photo by Samuel Oslund)
This summer I had the chance to access the facilities of Iacc’s Green lab of Valldaura to produce the 2nd phase of the Twistab project. Twistab is an open design project I have been developing with Fablab Barcelona since mid 2013.
I teamed up with Shashank Shrivastva, a Shopbot and Rhinoceros master but alsoa great person and wonderful professional, with the idea to solve tecnical issues of the design and push the aesthetics aspect further. During 10 days we got immersed into the very spirit of the lab. Not only were we given the absolute freedom to do what and how we wanted but the intricate ambiance of the place acted as an inspirational force challenging us to push the project beyond our own expectations.
