Disrupting Design With Fab


Are you an emerging designer or student who wants to disrupt the industry? Fab wants to make your dreams come true. We’re setting up shop in Milan during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, and together with our all-star team of celebrity judges, we want to see what you’ve got.

Bring your product ideas, portfolios, and prototypes on April 10th to be judged, on the spot, by:

Bradford Shellhammer, Co-Founder and Chief Design Officer, Fab. 
Rob Forbes, Founder, Design Within Reach, Public Bikes.

We’ll pick three designers whose products will be manufactured and sold to 12 million members on Fab. Your work should be of high quality and be a functional object made through handcrafted, high-tech, and/or experimental processes.

Sale Spotlight: Moleskine


What do Lou Reed, Vincent Van Gogh, Spike Jonze, Angelina Jolie, Carin Goldberg, Ernest Hemingway, Christian Lacroix, Yves Béhar, Maira Kalman, and Ruben Toledo have in common? Sure, they’re all highly-respected artists in their relative fields. Award-winners. They lead (or led) more exciting lives than me, and maybe you? But they’re also all Moleskine users, each using the iconic little notebook to jot down lyrics and lines, sketch designs and ideas and keep their genius in one place. 

Our Moleskine selection includes daily and weekly planners to help you keep all your appointments and contacts in order, so you can get to the business of leading a more exciting life.
