“Fab”, the “fabrication revolution” movement has been spreading around the world. Fab has a double meaning: “FABrication”, not limited by the logic of mass production and markets, as well as “FABulous”. The FAB network now extends to over 50 locations in 20 countries around the world (as of April 2011)
FabCafe is a space that conveys the FAB spirit in a fun, delicious and easy to understand way. In the center of Shibuya, an area overflowing with youthful energy, we provide a space where people can enjoy making things in an exciting environment furnished with a variety of digital fabrication tools, including a laser cutter.
