Architecting cybernetic
solutions for the distributed economy

In the last decade, modular open-source technologies and a philosophy of decentralization have developed in parallel.

The result is a family of system modules that when combined, form institutions more than the sum of their parts. Imagine: new prosumer governance forms like data unions and distributed energy cooperatives, or market primitives—such as bonding curves and blockchain tokens—that automate liquidity and provide real time price discovery.

Curve Labs is a team of design interventionists who research and implement these building blocks to create proofs of concept.

We engage in the playful, combinational use of different modules to architect institutions that couldn’t exist before. Our team has deep experience in distributed and open-source technologies, and together, we believe we can address crucial problems of the anthropocene today ➰


Composable Design Intervention

Combinational assemblages of components are the future of organizational systems design. We see ourselves as institutional architects sourcing open-source design primitives and patterns. Think: data unions, energy cooperatives, and complementary currencies backed by carbon reduction.

Social and Solidarity Economy

We aim to democratize finance using bonding curves and other market primitives to facilitate a liquid and sustainable long-tail of emerging ecosystems. We imagine a new distributed global financial order interconnected by tens of thousands of complementary currencies and local collectives.

Cyber-physical Infrastructures

Institutions of the future will be built on cyber-physical systems with digital shadows. These new infrastructures and interfaces must maximize user self-sovereignty and privacy, ensuring they work for both people and the environment.
