About the lab

This lab provides design support to start-ups and SMEs at key stages during the innovation process. Involved in all areas of communication and product design, the lab performs a range of activities, from the creation of CIs and brands to assistance with product development.

Commercial design work fuels entrepreneurial success and covers a range of interdisciplinary fields, including:

  • Ecological design
  • Participatory design
  • Service design
  • Social design
  • Strategic design

The Design Lab applies these innovative design methods in collaboration with other scientists working at the NOI Techpark and, in doing so, pursues the aim of promoting sustainable and socially responsible business practices.
