Aalto University Design Factory
The mission of the Design Factory is to develop creative ways of working, spatial solutions and enhanced interdisciplinary interaction to support world-class product design in educational, research and practical application contexts.
Aalto University Design Factory was born from a research project focused on creating an ideal physical and mental working environment for product developers and researchers. Today, ADF is one of the spearhead projects and one of the first physical manifestations of Aalto University's goal of encouraging and enabling fruitful interaction between students, researchers and professionals.
The Design Factory concept has been adopted by several universities around the world. The Design Factory Global Network consists of Design Factories that operate based on the same principles and philosophies and also provides the same familiar environments in which to operate.
