The Lab

01 // On the surface

On the surface we might look like any other innovation practice. We design and facilitate innovation processes developing novel tech concepts. We create and coordinate research projects pioneering applications of emerging technologies. But it is our ‘how’ that set us apart. Together with our partners over at Near Future Laboratory, in California, who pioneered the method of Design Fiction, we strive to imagine harder and change the world for the better.
