Design for Craft is a design and developing lab for tech craftsmanship that was founded in Macerata in 2012 by Carlo De Mattia, Emilio Antinori and Vincenzo Franchino. The innovative start-up was born aiming at testing out and developing manufacturing shapes, processes, production, and innovative surface treatments in the field of digital manufacturing. Since the very beginning, Design for Craft has worked following a new kind of approach to product design and halfway processes including both craftsmanship and industry, and keeping its focus on the need to confer the final product features to the 3D printed prototype. Therefore, the start-up develops world’s first new materials in the field of FDM 3D printing by launching the project Stick Filament®. This is an original type of filament that is an alternative to the typical spool and it is obtained through an injection moulding machine, which allows to produce on-demand filaments in small quantities.
Design for Craft has taken part in the Rome Maker Faire since its very first edition in 2013. The company has a very active role in most 3D printing events in Italy, not only as an exhibitor, but above all as a group, spreading specific research topics and innovative applications. The know-how we acquired over the years, the deep knowledge of processes and technological tools, and the desire to communicate a new approach to item making. This is what allows Design for Craft to work in the field of vocational and professional training, as well as bridging course and workshops, in collaboration with University, school, institutions, research centres, fablab and associations.

Founded in June 2014 by the passion of its two partners Massimiliano and Andrea, MKRLAB S.r.l.s. started its activity as a rapid prototyping service mainly for professional and company business.
In November 2014 MKRLAB lounches the 3D printing materials online store shop.mkrlab.com taking care to select the best filaments; the idea is: “we sell the materials that we use”.
In February 2015 begins the MKR1798 project: MKRLAB realizes tailored 3D printers to customer needs.
Today in parallel with construction of printers, MKRLAB carries on the prototyping activity, continuing to innovate and offer customers new printing technologies to meet their needs.
In addition, to offer a more complete service and to give vent our creativity, we have started a design division so that we can support customers from the early stages of the prototype and be able to market products designed and manufactured by MKRLAB.
ADD (ArcheoDigitalDesign) is a collaboration of three different companies ABACO, DIGITALES and DESIGN FOR CRAFT who have combined their specific expertise to create a project for the improving of the use of cultural heritage. Thanks to the latest digital technologies and historical, artistic and archaeological skills, ADD creates products and services that enrich and extend the cognitive experience of the artistic heritage.
