Mozilla Japan’s Open Source Factory Space

  • Client Mozilla,
  • Year 2013
  • Location Tokyo, Japan,
  • Industry Hardware / Software Development,
  • NOSIGNER has designed an clean factory space on the ground floor at Mozilla Japan using a number of off-the-shelf items like plastic crates and palettes.

    We designed Mozilla Japan’s new office’s ground floor, Mozilla Factory Space, based on the idea of Open Source. Mozilla Japan is one of the part of the Mozilla Foundation which have promoted the idea of open source and open source software. “Open Source” is a kind of movement to open the source code of software. It enable everyone to be able to use that software and participate in improving. This movement has made it possible software is continually being improved, and develop high-quality software on a budget.

    This office constructed by the common product, such as corner module or plastic pallet. Therefore, our design might also be able to call the “open source furniture” so to speak. Because general products used and all drawings uploaded to the web, it is possible for everyone to make these functional office furnitures inexpensively.
