FOR KIDS_Waiting is fun

"For kids" project aims to the realization of doctors' waiting room interior design and toys to make this usually stressful environment funny and confortable for kids .
The project is ambitious, creative and sustainable because forniture and toys are realized using eco-friendly materials, digital fabrication technologies and a maker approach. "For Kids" explores the potential in mixing contemporary design and children-oriented space planning, using creativity and technology to improve the quality of life.

FabLab Sardegna Ricerche ( Sandra Ennas, Fabrizio Sotgiu, Luisa Chessa, Sonia Floris, Simona Sestu, Aldo Diana)

Sandra Ennas, electrical engineer, was born in Cagliari in 1963, master's degree in Optical Technologies. After a year and a half spent working at the University of Cagliari within a project funded by Enel Research in Milan, she began working at Sardegna Ricerche in 1994.
Sandra holds a course at the Faculty of Engineering of Cagliari, where she teaches "Patents” for the Industrial Engineering PhDoct. She is also author of several publications and articles of books, in the field of innovation&technology transfer and intellectual property, with several participations at national and international Congress. At present che manages the Technology Transfer Sector of Sardegna Ricerche that includes the library, the intellectual property center, the laboratory of Rapid Prototyping and the FabLab. The skills acquired concern mainly the Technology Transfer and tools for the development of new products / processes. She manages and managed human resources of high competence and different skills (Engineering, Agriculture, Chemistry, Philosophy, humanities, law, economics, geology, etc.)

Fabrizio Sotgiu was born in Cagliari in 1978. In 2003 got a degree in electronic engineeiring and start working as computer repair technician. Hereafter he acts as system administrator in varius private companies until, in 2010, got employed in the Rapid Prototyping Lab of Sardegna Ricerche gaining experience with additive and subtrative digital fabrication technologies. He is part of the FabLab Sardegna Ricerche’s staff from the opening and since 2015 coordinates all its activities.

Luisa Chessa was born in Sassari in 1968, degree in Economics and Business at the University of Cagliari in 1995.
At present she works in the Technology Transfer office in Sardegna Ricerche where she is involved in projects to analyze the state and the need for innovation in the regional companies operating in the food sector. She is also supporting the management activities related calls to the newly created fabbrication laboratory in Sardegna Ricerche.

Sonia Floris, degree in Economics and Business at the University of Cagliari in 2004, Master in Human Resource. At present she works in the Technology Transfer office in Sardegna Ricerche where she is involved in projects to analyze the state and the need for innovation in the regional companies operating in the manufacturing. She is also supporting the management activities related calls to the newly created fabbrication laboratory in Sardegna Ricerche.

Simona Sestu was born in Muravera in 1984.
Master Degree in Construction and Architectural Engineering at the University of Cagliari in 2009, business Innovation postgraduate studies (promoted by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia.)
She is a designer with different work experiences in architectural and urban design field and in digital fabrication techniques. Currently she co-operates with Sardegna Ricerche FabLab where she plans different activities related to the FabLab and supports the users in using several digital machines. The acquired knowledge and skills are related to the so called “makers culture” and to grassroot research and invention spaces dedicated to technological education.

Aldo Diana, born in Cagliari in 1973. After a degree in Mechanical Engineering, "Industrial automation and robotics” specialization and after two years spent working at the University of Cagliari within different projects in the field of Non Conventional Robotics, during the Mechanical design PhD course, he began working at Sardegna Ricerche in 2004.
He manages the Rapid Prototyping Laboratory of Sardegna Ricerche at the Scientific and Technological Park of Sardinia and he looks after the Parametric Virtual Design, Engineering and Rapid Prototyping steps.
He is also co-author of a publication about a cam mechanism to convert a revolute motion into a symmetrical oscillating harmonic movement.
The skills acquired, as well as in the field of the Technology Transfer, concern Mechanical design and the tools for the development of new products/processes: CAD for the Parametric Virtual Design, FEM/FEA for Finite Elements Analysis, CFD for Computational Fluid Dynamics Analysis and Rapid Prototyping Systems.
