Our new Eden for product development
It had to be the right place. The right environment. The right moment.
The development of a product is, in essence, about introspection. But it requires lots of interaction with the world, too. Needs of inspiration and good vibes, and it all has to happen when you have access to your work materials: you need to be in your tailored atelier.
Our workshop is born in the guts of an ancient watermill. Centuries ago, the emplacement served as a convent and, later, belonged to the Lords of La Sarra. This emblematic place called Le Moulin Bornu, was also known at that time as The Middle of the World, and links both Rhone and Rhine and, further, Mediterranean Sea with Nordic Sea.
Today, it has been re-adapted for the local industry, and there we gather a variety of enterprises, from service companies, to construction, blacksmiths, restaurants, artists... The watermill has turned a hydroelectric power station providing electricity to local areas.
Everyday, we pass right close to the river basin to enter to the workshop. Isn't it magic? So it is to count with a part of the old watermill mechanism right inside our workspace :) Old-tech and new-tech gathered in the same place!
What we do there
Such an adequate environment brings a flow of things to do:
EeD's design stage is about carbon neutral,
produces very limited waste, and
optimises available material resources
Soon, we will share some images of how we refurbished the place and how it looks like with you :)
