Presentation slides. Workshop “Making things open”, WeMake, Milan, 18.10.2014

Making Things Open, booklet (IT)

The workshop has been conceived on the basis of the following projects and activities:

Master of Advanced Studies in Interaction Design SUPSI
Within the master program, we experiment and test the integration of open source design and fablab practices into interaction design courses (from concept to prototyping).
All project developed by master students are released in creative commons in a public repository of github.

PhD Research
the framework definition is an activity developed within Serena Cangiano’s Doctoral research on the design of open source interactive artifacts at SUPSI Interaction design lab and University IUAV of Venice.

Open FM Radio workshop – Fablab SUPSI Lugano
A workshop about the diy making of an FM radio through electronics prototyping and digital fabrication techniques.

The course Designing Advanced Artifacts held by Massimo Banzi, Innocenzo Rifino and Diego Rossi ( in 2011 at the master program in interaction design SUPSI. The course goal was to design open, customizable and digital fabricated products.

Designing for the third industrial revolution – Summer school in digital fabrication and interaction design SUPSI
A series of workshops about the design and prototyping of physical interactive artifacts.
