Let's work together


Design thinking is a human-centered, problem-solving approach that provides visualization tools such as: Context-mapping, Customer-journey and Quick prototyping among others. At the Living Lab, we contextualize design thinking tools to facilitate participation and co-learning.

At Living lab, we conduct research and facilitate innovation processes using a collaborative design approach. We believe collaboration is the key to radical innovation.
