Futureworks and A/D/O are collaborating to sponsor four months of workshop membership at the Greenpoint space dedicated to exploring the boundaries of design. This opportunity is open to New York City-based hardware startups, advanced manufacturers and industrial designers. It’s part of the NYCEDC Futureworks Shops program, which networks nine production spaces together across the city. Apply today.

Applications are due August 31 and the four-month studio membership kicks off between Sept 15 and Oct 1. The winner will be announced Sept 8. There is space for two residents and companies must be based in, and manufacture or prototype in, New York City. Apply today.

Part laboratory, part coworking space, part design collective, the Workspace at A/D/O is a place where members explore new possibilities in design, products, objects, and fabrication. Members have access to a full suite of fabrication tools, the support from the Workspace team and access to the full calendar of A/D/O design programming. Tools include a Shopbot CNC, Trotec Laser Cutter, Hot Wire Foam Cutter, Lulzbot 3D printers, AVL Compu Digital Loom and Singer sewing machines. You’ll also get to sell products at A/D/O’s concept store and have the opportunity to present your work to the A/D/O and broader design community.

A/D/O is one of nine Futureworks Shops alongside Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator in Bed-Stuy, Bronx Innovation Factory in Fordham Heights, Collab in Hudson Square, Craftsman Ave in Gowanus, NEW INC in NoLiTa, NYDesigns in Long Island City, Voodoo Manufacturing in Bushwick and Zahn Innovation Center in Hamilton Heights. Futureworks Shops is sponsored by New York City Economic Development Corporation.

Futureworks NYC is a key component of the City’s Industrial Action Plan to help emerging and existing manufacturers promote, adopt, and create advanced technologies and increase local production. To ensure these technologies are made accessible to all New Yorkers, NYCEDC created Futureworks NYC as a platform of shared resources from educational programming to access to equipment and space, and connections within the growing community. Futureworks Shops is designed and run by innovation agency SecondMuse whose New York office is based in Chelsea. Join Futureworks on Instagram, Twitter and sign up for our mailer.
