Instagram

Social media is not really our thing. Instagram the least. We aren‘t to keen to participate in and feed centralized platforms that track and surveil their users in order to manipulate them and lur them into consumerism. But there seems to be truth in the common phrase that „attention is the currency of the 21 century“ and when it comes to that there seems to be no way around them right now. It wasn‘t an easy decision for us but we decided to play along and open up an instagram account.

WORKFLOW
  1. Bei Instagram Posten
  2. Zu Facebook auf die Mifactori-Seite gehen und Lars als Interagierenden einstellen und in ca. 3 Gruppen Deiner Wahl verteilen über den Teilen-Button – und den Text reinkopieren nochmal.
  3. Bei Twitter einfach nur den ersten Satz mit dem Link posten bei Mifactori. Mache „…“ wo der Text zu lang ist
  4. Von Lars retweeten … mit einem Kommentar. Vielleicht einfach nur mit Hashtags. …. Ja. Mit 3en. Mach das eine Serie. Sehr elegant.

00 Fonto

We have an early Christmas present. 2020 we started the creation of our own color font – Fonto. Version 0.5 is ready to be used and to be build upon. The work licensed under CC0 – so it comes without any strings attached. Just use it as you like. Visit the page → https://mifactori.de/fonto/

“Fonto is made to express joy of life and the light-heartedness that can come with simplicity and modularity. With this it is made to reflect so many things we are about at Mifactori and sustainable inclusive open design should be.” → https://mifactori.de/fonto/

01 What Is Article

@distributeddesign

Mifactori 2020 recap: We published an article reflecting open circular design. Our point is: Design that is made for flexibility – for reuse, remix, repair and local adaption – doesn‘t really has a final version. This makes it somehow different what this design is. Check the post here → https://mifactori.de/open-design-lamp/

06 Talks

Mifactori 2020 recap: Despite of Covid 19 we gave a number of talks and lectures – a good number of them about Business Making and Open Source Circular Design. We used this to create an update for our MOOC on the matter. As usual all our talks are online in written form some got even filmed.

08 Old Stuff

Mifactori 2020 recap: We cleaned up our volumes (taking care of your stuff is a key to a sustainable designed life) and found some images we made a long long time ago. These pictures are made with ‘Microsoft Paint‘ – a tool that was widespread and basically free for everyone with a computer. An accessible tool. An OpenDesign principle at work.

14 KLS

Mifactori 2020 recap: We ended the project „Kreislaufschule“. In this project we guided the kids of a school in Berlin to transform their own school into a more circular one using creative, communicative and activistic means. For example we made a demonstration in front of the deans office and campaigned to the whole street to become more climate friendly. Check the project website which is full of howtos here → https://mifactori.de/kls/

# 46 Kreislaufschule

English below ↓

Im Oktober wurde die erste Kreislaufschule zertifiziert. Kinder haben ihre Schule mit schulinternem kreativen Aktivismus Stück für Stück in eine Kreislaufschule umgewandelt.

Und die Schule steht in einer Klimastraße… Klimastraße ist eine Idee für alle. Jede Straße kann Klimastraße werden. Auf geht’s!

ENGLISH

In October Circular Berlin, Zero Waste Your Life & Mifactori certified the first circular school (Kreislaufschule) in Germany. Using creative and activistic means kids transformed their school step by step (resource by resource) into a Circular School.

And the school is located in a climate street…. Climate street is an idea for everyone. Every street can become a climate street. Let’s go!

Act

Go for it.

Yes.

Do.

Start.

Join.

It’s time.

Make it, don’t wait.

Designers working self-motivated like artists is the only way to a sustainable design revolution.

Why?

A key difference between art and design is that artists today mostly work self motivated and self driven. They start and finish projects because they want to see them in the world. Designers on the other hand work for clients. They make what other people want to see. So they have to wait for a commission. To start by themselves feels weird and wrong to most designers. This is part of the reason why we have so few sustainable design. Designers are seldom approached by clients with the request to create something really really ecological sustainable. So they don’t get to make those designs. … read more and act at the Campaign Page → https://mifactori.de/self/

A niche interest but important and maybe interesting for you. Some people misuse Creative Commons “Non Commercial” licenses for their “Open Source” hardware work which creates bizarre effects and damage to the whole field. This interactive FAQ explains the problem(s).

# no _ 14 3erlin Grid Parts

Inspired by the OpenStructures project we work at Mifactori with a unified grid. Whenever there are holes to drill we try to make sure that the distance between them is always the same in all parts –  always 3cm (=3erlin Grid). With this all parts we ever created a simple(r) to (re)combine. Like #Lego or #Meccano.

We work with this all the time and have a category on our website (link in bio) where you can find all designs and posts talking about the 3erlinGrid and sharing insights how to use it.

Here are some images showing collections of 3erlinGrid and 3erlinGrid compatible parts stored in our workshop and sometimes used for different things from #exhibition #infrastructure to #robots.

# no _ 15 OWi Poster

From the archives. Mifactori is an outcome of a project from 2011 called „OWi – Open Ecological Economy“. As part of that project we experimented with a 100% percent biodegradable poster printed with bioplastics. The pictures show these experiments and the claim from that project:

„OWi – Offene Ökologische Wirtschaft

Eine ökologische Wirtschaft mit transparenten Stoffkreisläufen

OPEN regenerative DESIGN“

This translates to:

„OWi – Open Ecological Economy

An ecological economy with transparent closed material cycles

Open Regenerative Design!“

And this is somehow still to 100% our objective.

Visit our website (link in bio) to see how we are doing.

# no _ 16 3erlinGrid Stool

We got challenged and forced to make a wooden stool in a very short time resulting into this design. The design is of course #3erlinGrid based. And it is a good example that working with the 3erlinGrid does not necessarily has to result in a very technical looking object.

One of our most fun workshops is #circular #transformers. Kids create their own modular construction #toy parts by drilling a unified grid into plastic collected scraps. Then they create monsters with them that can be disassembled and turned into new and different monsters. Sometimes we create animations documenting the transformation process.

You can find the full Workshop HowTo and many many funny transformers animated on our website (link in bio), search for „Transformers“.

# no _ 09b PLATE conference

It is really nice to be at a conference where everyone understands what you are talking about and why it is worth to be excited about it 🙂 | Check out my workshop here: https://opencircularity.info/pre-use-workshop/ #preuse #modularity

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Modularity is a key to a more sustainable world of products and consumption. This workshop will introduce two interesting concepts about “modularity for sustainable circularity”. We will discuss “Pre-Use” and “Hacking Modularity”. Pre-Use means to use something for something different than it was intended for but in a way that it still works for the initially intended use afterwards. Hacking Modularity points to the idea that the majority of things around us are not modular but approaching things like a hacker can change that at least for some things. After a quick theoretical introduction to these concepts participants will build quick own statues and hacks at the conference venue using pre-use techniques.

TITLE: If Everything was Made from Lego There Would be no
Garbage – Hacking Things Modular with Pre-use!

Last year we invented 17 workshop for kids for the #sustainable #eco #city. All workshops are documented as extended #howtos on our website (link in Bio) and show how you can be creative and sustainable at the same time.

In one of the workshops we built a 1 Euro #mealworm #farms in the #school, we grew #insects and cooked them and ate them in the end. A very fun experience 🙂 Eating insects is #sustainable #protein source.

You can find a full #howto for insect #workshop on our website (link in bio). See you there and ‚bon appetit!‘

We made more than 100 different „#climatechange survival christmas angels“ or „climate change survival fortune angles“.

Why climate change surivival? Because they are 100% #modular and made from useful nuts and bolts. So when climate change comes and crushes down on your house you can dismantle these angels and use them to build useful #survival #gear.

You can find a full documentation of the #angles and at least 100 pictures from the different versions on our website (link in bio or direct link: https://mifactori.de/engel/). There you also find an opportunity to order some of them as presents or for your #xmas tree.
