Omicron courtyards

Fair trade meets regionalism. The project, 3 sculptures that serve as meeting rooms for the workers, is a commitment to support craftsmanship locally as well as in Bangladesh and in India. The aim is to create an atmospheric space of high quality for the employees of Omicron, and at the same time to make a social economic impact by involving a high amount of local craftsmanship and development organization from the global South.

The monolith, the zeppelin and the meeting rooms are finished !

The official opening was on 5-6 October 2015 (Omicron world festival).
