Micro Factory

Design* Lab

Micro Factory is an independent community for designers, craftsmen, makers, scientists and local industries from Hong Kong and PRD region, aimed at exploring new narratives through curated objects. Micro Factory will adopt the concept of factory assembly line as an experimental platform for old and new, high and low, and from crafts to technology. Micro Factory will explore new implementations for everyday living, engaging with a wider audience through a series of public design activities.
