FabriK3 was set up in 2005 and groups three young designers trained at the Ensci-les Ateliers in Paris - François Clerc, Claire-Emmanuelle Hue and Alexis Patras.
FabriK3 has opted for the inclusion of environment-friendly criteria in all design activities, scenography and product fabrication. For the trio, eco-design means assessing the impact of production on the environment so as to reduce it to acceptable levels. This evaluation is active at every phase: creation, production, transport, use and end-of-usefulness of objects.
For FabriK3, eco-design opens new fields of investigation that concern clients and suppliers as well as creators.
