“The Making Of…” is a series of conferences promoted by ADI-FAD with the aim to provide first-hand insight into the process of making a product from its initial conception through its commercialisation and experience in the marketplace.




Nespresso-comptatible pods, with organic coffee and fully compostable 

The pod is made from a polymer called Ecovio®, obtained from corn, which means it can be deposited in the container for the organic fraction of municipal waste, taking between 4 and 12 weeks to biodegrade. Both the adhesive andthe paper lid are also compostable.  It has been certified with the following seals: OK Compost, which guarantees that the packaging is biodegradable and compostable (according to European standard EN 13432), and OK Biobased, which accredits the use of renewable raw materials in the manufacture of the product. It contains certified organic coffee cultivated without the use of artificial chemical substances (additives, pesticides and herbicides).



Lamp It, «lampaditza» the object that you wish

Ceiling lamp composed of a powerful magnet and a metal lamp holder, enabling any object to be used as a lampshade and offering plenty of opportunities for creativity, decoration and upcycling. The lamp has been designed to be used with a highly energy-efficient LED light bulb.


Collection Remix Vol.1 & Vol. 2 

The Remix collections consist of stocks of discontinued materials to which designers have applied their creativity. By creating limited series, they have given each collection a cachet of exclusivity. The materials used are brass door fittings and wood from containers. The shops that distribute the items are made aware of this focus on recycling and the reuse of materials, and they in turn highlight this aspect as an added value in their customer sales strategy. The message has reached other industrial companies in the sector, which are also looking at how to reuse their obsolete stocks in order to create new products.

The attendance is free, but it is necessary to registre HERE.
