https://www.fablabs.io/fellesverkstedet

Jens Dyvik is a designer specialized in global collaboration and local manufacturing. He works with emotional connections between people and products, and aims to create services and products that help make those connections meaningful.

In 2013 he concluded a two year research world tour, where he worked at open collaborative workspaces on all corners of the world. He is currently applying this research into open design and personal manufacturing in Oslo, enabling him to make a living from an open and sharing design approach. He is also a co-founder of Fellesverkstedet, a super-FabLab in the making in Oslo.

Jens Dyvik er en designer spesialisert i globalt samarbeide og lokal produksjon. I april 2013 avsluttet han en toårig FabLab forskningreise hvor han jobbet på åpne digitale produksjonsverksteder jorden rundt. Han bruker denne kunnskapen om kortreist design, personlig produksjon og globalt samarbeide på sitt design studio i Oslo. Dette gjør han i stand til å leve av en åpen og delende tilnærming til design. Han er også co-founder av Fellesverkstedet, et åpent verksted for produksjon i Oslo.
