The Open Design Lab makes innovation in the make and design industry transparant and accessible for artists, designers, entrepreneurs, and citizens. The heart of this Lab consists of the maker space Fablab Amsterdam, the first Fablab opened in The Netherlands and part of the international network.
The Lab offers room for self-initiated research, and is a place to learn by making, where new relations are formed between people and objects. We facilitate experimental and artistic research in fashion, textiles, architecture, the Internet of Things, robotics, nanotechnology, energy, healthcare and nutrition. We work to make our materials, processes and results sustainable and transparant.
The Open Design Lab is made possible by a subsidy from the Creative Industries Fund NL.
