What we specialize in
If you had to some up what we do it would be "make stuff". Under the surface of that broad description is a myriad knowledge base of methods and techniques for precisely creating objects of function and beauty. We put our minds together on projects running the gamut from innovative photo gear to furniture and futuristic sailing ships. At the core of everything we take on is a goal that the objects we create will make the world a more delightful and synergetic place.
Science and art have always been inextricably intertwined. At Marin MADE our goal in the arts is to take modern rapid prototyping methods and apply them to traditional fine art forms. Collaborations with prominent artists are leading this charge and will be followed by integration into school art curriculums to share this knowledge with the aspiring next generation.
We don't mean the beauty they are selling in shampoo commercials, we are talking about the beauty of a falcon dropping onto its prey with surgical precision or the beauty of a flower unfolding from its bud. We develop innovative designs that are harmonious with this beauty. Whether its a solution for an issue in a developing nation or a fix to a problem in our back yard we are a place that fosters creative design for a bright future.
Our learning programs are aimed at ambitious young adults that are passionate about making a difference. Leveraging the knowledge of the Marin Made team and the capabilities of our lab in collaboration with local educational institutions we develop a variety of courses to teach the next generation what they want to know.
