Tinker.it!, a company dedicated to bringing creativity and technology together, is hosting an event on April 18th to design a piece of lighting using left-over materials. Following the success of their Makers and Hackers event, the new Slow Lighting Event hopes to achieve similar results in a new field. The event is a new spin on product design where the audience is expected to utilize the opportunity as a making day, not a teaching day.
The hosts hope the collaboration of innovative teams will yield fresh results despite strict restrictions on materials and time. Instead of The best products will be showcased at the Tinker.it’s booth at the Furniture Fair section of the Milano Green Art Festival. Tinker.it has assembled materials from assorted shops and landfills and will serve lunch with the £30 ticket. Visit the event site for more information.
