What We Do

Faber Futures is a futures design lab operating at thresholds and intersections – between industries, disciplines and organisms. Design research is at our core, helping us to define opportunities where the powerful language of DNA can be utilised to improve the viability of our material flows.

We identify where the value lies in designing with living systems and communicate these strategic insights through immersive masterclasses, bespoke research, and special projects.

Our goals go beyond anticipating the future – at Faber Futures we catalyse it. By developing design-driven protocols for biofabricated products and materials, alongside scalable and sustainable mechanisms of synthesis with our collaborators, we create clear paths for innovation to facilitate the global transition to the circular economy.

Working with leading consumer biotechnology companies, multi-sector brands and institutions, Faber Futures is developing a critical and creative approach to the design of biology.
