As a creative mind and lover of art, design and technology, this subject piqued my interest and so could not fail to mention and report to Impossible Labs. As a young architect and designer, look at the EBox awards, I like to understand how the bridge is bridged between these areas and the technological world.
KwameCorp, co-founded by UK’s Kwame Ferreira, has decided to join the global Impossible brand and relaunch the company with a new name.
Impossible Labs intends through technology, art and design to transform and create new ideas, thereby solving seemingly impossible problems in our reality.
Impossible emerged in 2013 as a social economy platform. A social network aimed at selfless people, created by actress and model Lily Cole.
This platform has been expanding into other areas, such as Impossible Labs, which has enriched itself in areas such as technology and design, with the goal of “Reimagining the world with one product at a time”.
From this union, a new global design, engineering and innovation company is born that both provides technology solutions to international giants – such as Google, Samsung, Roche, Intel, among others – and designs and develops impactful digital products and services. positive social policy based on a sustainable and ethical logic.
The company is one of the few to hold certification B Corporation (socially and environmentally responsible company).
Impossible Labs: From Lisbon to the world
Impossible Labs already has in Lisbon about 35 professionals who want to change the world and the way companies dynamize and innovate.
“As a company, KwameCorp was created without an intentional brand identity, it was just a group of people who came together to solve problems,” says Kwame Ferreira.
KwameCorp co-founder and CEO adds, "Together with Impossible, we share a vision of problem solving across products, so we decided to join forces under a common identity, Impossible Labs."
In addition to Lisbon, Impossible Labs also has offices in London, San Francisco and Brisbane, and aims to strengthen this network where designers, engineers, creatives, web developers and problem solvers, of various nationalities but of similar ideas, come together in the same vision and common values: honesty, freedom, responsibility and transparency.
"It may seem utopian, but for Impossible freedom has a partner: responsibility; it encourages personal and professional growth, autonomy, health and happiness at work," explains Kwame Ferreira.
Among the various products and solutions developed are Fairphone (the first smartphone with ethical concerns), Google's Tango application development, Braveno business finance platform (launched at WebSummit 2016) and, most recently, the Nikabot project (chat bot business productivity).
Impossible also has a store online (via) with products that have a positive impact on the world, starting with the careful choice of materials used in their manufacture, such as the peculiar ones Wires, glasses made with wire from Zimbabwe whose production helps the local population.
