In the heart of Copenhagen’s design district in Frederiksstaden, the lab is placed in the Designmuseum’s facilities. Lifestyle Lab Cph must first and foremost be a meeting place where circular and digital passionate people can network while also gaining and exchanging knowledge with other companies in the industry. For entrepreneurs and new brands, the lab must build a bridge between new knowledge, the industry, and the possibility to grow the business, moreover as a platform between circular and digital creating a framework for a common meeting ground where companies can get advice and guidance.
Lifestyle Lab Cph originates from Lifestyle & Design CLusters set of values, goals, and visions to promote innovation, circularity, digital transformation, and growth among Danish fashion, furniture, and design companies.
Lifestyle Lab Cph contains four different types of labs, depending on where the companies are in their growth journey – from entrepreneurs to experts. The labs welcome startups that want help to grow their business, a lab for events and networking activities, and a lab for demonstrating new technologies and circular solutions. Lifestyle & Design Cluster wishes to build a bridge between the innovative companies in the industry and the tech companies, which can be a catalyst for circular business models.
To support entrepreneurs and upcoming brands, the place will also function as an office community, where the companies can rent office space or a space in the lab’s showroom.
In that way, Lifestyle Lab Cph will function as a showcase for both international and national guests interested or curious about innovative development within the lifestyle industry. This initiative will help ensure the development and growth of viable startups and companies.
