MAKE by Þorpið is a hands on project that relies on people and their ideas, energy and motivation. We are in the process of building and developing services and support for design and product development in East Iceland. For this to happen we need to trial what we have got, get in new ideas of what can be done and actively make it happen.
We started the project by preparing the ground locally in East Iceland and are now looking for people to enter the community and trial our model. A main philosophy of the project is to make use of what we have got both in terms of material resources and human resources and to enhance it with different perspectives. It is our mission to grow and develop specialised knowledge and skills in using the local materials.
We are already receiving individuals and groups that are interested in designing and developing their products in East Iceland, some which are interested in using local materials, others that want to work with the local companies and also the ones that simply want to work on their design in the quiet and isolated surroundings of East Iceland. Our services are still minimal and organized on a case by case basis so if you are interested in the project, want to visit or give us your comments or have further questions please write us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and follow us on facebook.
