Joris van Tubergen
Joris van Tubergen (1977) studied Industrial Design Engineering at Delft University of Technology. His fascination for digital production resulted in 2008 in the foundation of Fablab Protospace in Utrecht. Joris is creative director and Lab-manager at Protospace. Since the start-up of the Fablab, he has supported the development of the RepRap - an open source 3D printer that you can build yourself. In 2010, the popular RepRap masterclasses and the spin-off activities transformed into a commercial company: Ultimaking LTD. Joris is actively involved in the development of the Ultimaker, and has been printing objects with these machines since their origin. His project '€1,- per minute design', in which the printing time determines the price of the product, is renowned by leading (international) galleries and museums. Joris' vision on digital fabrication highly contributes to the scientific and cultural debate. Recent broadcasts on television (Labyrinth (NTR / VPRO), Zapp-live (NCRV) and Met de kennis van nu (NTR) illustrate this fact.
