We’ve built London’s first openly accessible organic and bio-plastics Material Lab and Library inside Green Lab

 

The Material Lab is a working space for research to take place. If your intrigued to experiment with living and bio-materials, but don’t have the space or facilities at home, we offer an in-between space – where you can hack together research and experimentation to develop ground breaking samples.
 
Our developing material library will be a space to connect industry to researchers – showcasing materials that are pushing the boundaries alongside more traditional options. Our material library will be a space for professionals to come and source inspiration and forecast future developing materials whilst also gaining direct access to our members and there research.
