Fab Lab, Makerspace, Open Workshop, High-Tech Laboratory, Co-Working Space
Ideas are important driving forces of our society. However often their implementation fails because of missing access to required machines, lacking know-how or fear of contact to modern technology. Helping you to bring your ideas to life and turn them into physical objects by just one click - that's Happylab's main goal.
Founded in 2008 by Karim Jafarmadar and Roland Stelzer, Happylab provides cost-efficient access to digital fabrication tools at its locations in Vienna, Salzburg and Berlin: 3D printer, laser cutter, CNC milling machine, cutting plotter, electronics workstation, a workshop with common hand tools and a store with selected consumable materials are counted among the basic equipment.
But Happylab is more than just a space with workstations and machines that can be used. Important aspects are the possibility to exchange ideas and know-how within the community and easy access for people without technical expertise. In regular guided tours, trainings and workshops Happylab conveys the needed know-how so that you can use the digital fabrication tools for your own ideas and projects.
About 2.000 active members use Happylab's infrastructure - among them students and pupils, start-ups and entrepreneurs, designers, artists, inventors, makers. Since November 2010 Happylab Vienna is open for all makers and DIY enthusiasts, in October 2014 our second location in Salzburg followed. On September, 30th 2016 Germany's first Happylab in Berlin will open its doors.
