We were born in 2011 during Ecodesign course at Politecnico di Torino; and we started our research in the field of product design, design for components and systemic design. In 2013 we entered in contact with the world of makers ad 3D printer, and we began acquiring know how about DIY design and autoproduction.
In this context Felfil was born, that afterwards become, in 2016, an innovative startup: Felfil s.r.l.
Our filament extruder was born as our master degree dissertation in Ecodesign that gave us a background experiences that characterizes our team: Ecodesign, Self production, Open source and participatory design.
So if you have other questions or curiosity don’t hesitate to write, call us on Skype or come visit us in our office in the center of Turin, will be our pleasure to offer you a coffee.
