M-ITI's Critical Technical Practice Lab (CTP Lab) has been busier than ever! During the past 2 weeks, our CTP Lab has supported a group of Design students from the University of Madeira, in the prototyping of toys for their exhibition, entitled: LÁ-LÁ Madeira Toys.
Thanks to our cutting-edge technological equipment, modern techniques, as well as the collaboration of our experienced researchers, a significant part of the exhibition was prototyped in M-ITI's CTP Lab. Some examples are the Monachu swing and Bis-Birds mobiles that were manufactured from the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) cut, in order to be easily assembled and transported.
The LÁ-LÁ Madeira Toys will be displayed until April 30, 2017, in the Armazéns do Mercado, located in the historic center of Funchal, Madeira Island. It entangles the cultural diversity of the island, and alerts for the need of preserving its ecosystems.
