MICROFACTORY / DIY tool

MICROFACTORY
MICROFACTORY

MICROFACTORY is a concept centered around domestic manufacturing machinery. This allows people to make their own products at home easily as well as share their own designs.
MOW is a product from this concept, a domestic DIY cutting machine, especially for reusable materials such as cardboard, polypropylene and wood. By being set up on your own table when used, its compactness and adjustability benefit for both storage and working area.
With the principles of open-source design and reusing materials around home, MICROFACTORY suggests new manufacturing system and exchange value, which benefit society as a whole.
