Train yourself in digital manufacturing and become a designer craftsman
Furnish your spaces with custom furniture, made in Paris
Local and urban micro-factory
Moving to the city - where traditional production spaces have left these areas to settle on the periphery or even abroad - is a real challenge: our mission is to rethink production processes to review our way of doing business. consume, facing the giants of the industry.
We operate in a compact space, which is based on a model of production to order, in just-in-time, without stock.
Our production capacity is driven by digital techniques and allows us to tailor the machining, from the single piece to the small / medium series.
We have a special relationship with our clients, who operate in the same territory and understand the advantages of local collaboration: meeting their needs by creating a virtuous design / manufacturing / consumption loop; more efficient in materials and energy and more efficient in the treatment of waste.
Accompany this transition through training
Faced with all these economic issues and constraints related to the territory, trades are changing, and some craft activities are becoming more technical.
With DRAFT, designers, craftsmen and companies are supported in these changes with adapted professional training programs.
With this Parisian factory, we reconnect the production space with the consumer (the resident, the company) and its local environment (neighborhood, city).
Anne and Quentin, founders of DRAFT Workshops
Since our beginnings in 2014, we have shared our workspace and our means of production.
With designers, freelancers, entrepreneurs, our machines are pooled to take this urban production project even further. Beyond our own projects, we want our residents to have the ability to prototyping and producing on their workspace in the heart of the city.
To make the best use of all these tools, we offer, through our professional training, specific support following the projects.
The multiplicity of profiles and skills of the workshop leads us to propel many collaborations and to develop products or projects on behalf of our customers.
We have a workspace of 200m2, on 2 sites in the 18th.
The 130m2 workshop, in the heart of the eco-district of Halle Pajol, hosts the office space, the training area and the digital prototyping space.
The Studio, our production area of 70m2 (located 200m from the workshop) is for the machining and finishing of our development and manufacturing projects.
