Digital Fabrication

Everything starts with an idea.....

Greek philosophers believed all things began in a world of pre-thought. A place called the Ether, where all things existed in all their possible forms. With modern technology, we are able to visit and explore this place using 3D modeling software. We can create any object in all its infinite variations of form. We can now take those models and generate a cut path which instructs a machine to carve, cut, etch or print the model into reality! In essence, that is what we call Digital Fabrication - taking an object from the digital world into reality.  Our goal at Oakology is to shorten the time between concept and creation while maintaining quality of product and service.

What we do.....

We began as two friends in a small shop space in West Oakland, one with a degree in sculpture, the other with a background in construction and carpentry. Our focus is centered around bringing the worlds of art and manufacturing together. We reach almost every side of the field of fabrication from consumer products and architectural accents to signage for local businesses. We have items for sale such as furniture and lifestyle accessories along with custom design and fabrication services.

common requests.....

A lot of our clients are local businesses looking for promotional signs and customized giveaway items such as water bottles or labeling for their products. We have our own items and designs for sale ranging from furniture to apparel and take commissions for customization. We can outfit your restaurant with furnishings and decor to match or design an installation to accent your lobby. Public art installations are our next big goal, with the intention of having at least one major installation by 2018.
