WELCOME TO OUR CENTER FOR TRASH INVESTIGATION
TransfoLAB BCN is a centre dedicated to the creative ecosystem in Barcelona focused on design, innovation, production and experimentation with waste, circular economy and environmental sustainability. Basically we offer the space and support to makers, designers, architects, artists, students, DIY hobbyists and creative enthusiasts looking for an environment to develop and design their ideas or projects.
