The Serious Products Lab is ran by Eva Korae under the Department of Multimedia and Graphic Arts, School of Fine and Applied Arts, Cyprus University of Technology.
It aims to domestically produce experimental products, through the possibilities provided by Digital Fabrication and to archive/record indigenous manufacturing practices that contribute to the understanding of product design in general.
It also aims to export its practical and research results globally, through publications, exhibitions and participation in international design festivals.
