Build Your Ideas

The Design Fabrication Zone (DFZ) is an interdisciplinary hub for design and fabrication that strategically propels early-stage ideas for inventions, businesses and installations along the continuum from design to prototype to mass manufacturing.

We provide membership-based supports and services to uplift creative ideas and entrepreneurial projects from our downtown headquarters in The Creative School Innovation Studio at Toronto Metropolitan University.

Members of the DFZ become part of a growing community of designers, makers and entrepreneurs who share a common goal to improve the world through design and fabrication innovation.
