About the event

As part of the Distributed Design Residency at Happylab Wien (September 2024 – February 2025), makers and designers will be supported in the makerspace to realize their projects. The goal of the residency is – depending on the current project status – the realization of an idea, first prototypes or a small series, which will be exhibited at Happylab in March 2025. The program includes a package individually tailored to the needs of the participants:


  • Access to the machines at Happylab (3D printer, laser cutter, CNC router, wood & metal workshop,…).
  • Contingent of trainings and workshops in the makerspace
  • Project-related, individual consulting by experts
  • Studio space at the Happylab co-working space incl. meeting room
  • Access to our network of cluster partners (material suppliers, funding programs,…) incl. discounts & benefits
  • Promotion and visibility of the project through Happylab communication channels and partnerships

From September 2023 to February 2024, the second round of the Distributed Design Residency took place at Happylab. Our Distributed Design Residents tinkered with their projects for six months, created prototypes, and produced their first small batches. The results were impressive projects at the intersection of design and making, exhibited in March 2024. Find out more about the projects here.
