Core Relief was a 7‐day product design and manufacturing workshop, set up on the
humanitarian field of Lesvos by a group of 20 international designers and makers, assisted by NGOs, local
authorities and organizations and the private sector. The workshop focused on the design and production
of core relief, life‐sustaining, items using open‐source product design and additive manufacturing.
Following the success of the workshop, the LATRA Innovation Lab was created as a permanent fixture in the Kara Tepe Hospitality Centre for Refugees and Migrants offering designers, makers and producers access to innovative technology and the opportunity to practice and test applications directly on the ground.
The workshop was made with the support of the Creative Industries Fund NL, The Embassy Of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Medicine Du Monde (GR), The KARA TEPE Hospitality Centre in the Municipality of Lesvos and The Greek Free Open Source Society.
