Lower East Lab

it’s the blog

This is the blog for lower east & lower east lab. A mix of stuff from our design & communication world (things we do, things we have done, and things we experience and get inspired from) and news from our lab – where all kind of actions and experiments can happen – that be workshops, creative meetings, urban safaris (with focus on start up, architecture, design or food), and events, dinners and a lot more.

50 Years

50 Voices of Design

August 24, 2017

The Design School Kolding has 50th anniversary this year – to celebrate that they have (among a lot other activities) published a very fine book

50 designers, graduated from the school, tell their story in the book, and give an insight in the world of design and designers – Lower East’s Helle Marietta Pedersen is one of them.

She tells her story and her way to the design school – and describes her dear Lower East Lab like this; “where we express ourselves with loud music and good coffee and develop ideas and projects. Here we have workshops and co-working space. We are a training facility for interns, and we encourage our clients to come and work with us. It’s our dream to continue developing Lower East Lab as a vibrant space where design is the starting point and where play, openness and exchange of ideas are the precondition.”

Check Helle’s full story at the school’s website.
