FABMOBs is a media and content creation company for digital fabrication. Our mission concerns FABrication, the technology of 3D printing, and MOBility, a portable medium and a mob of networked artists, artisans, craftsmen and designers of the digital manufacturing revolution. ATMOStag is an example of a FABMOBs’ project designed to show the company’s potential.
Jamil Mehdaoui & Brad Kligerman, the co-founders of FABMOBs, are independent architects living and working in Paris. Their work relates to the built environment and its convergence with digital media: the networked society, 3-D, new media, digital manufacturing, virtual life & the development of software (CAD), code/scripting for 3D (Rhino, Grasshopper, Blender).
We are an association of architects, programmers and curators doing independent research into digital media, visual arts and built environments : SPATIAL INQUIRY for the invention of new structural typologies. The projects all share a series of inherent, critical dualities : physical / digital, materials / immaterials, land / scapes, space / image, representation / communication…

Jamil Mehdaoui partner
Jamil: “My world is built upon my experience making things. It is my way to stretch the design process. I do interior design, I make and sell craftsman built furniture, and design and fabricating masks and special effects for the theater and opera.”
Brad Kligerman partner
Brad: “My experience is working on large scale projects in the building and aerospace industries: projects where it was necessary to use computers in order to build the things we were designing. I taught myself how to develop software — for architects, by an architect.”
