Living lab Fabriken is an open maker-space located in the brand new facilities of STPLN which is an open creative community located in the Malmö (SWE) western harbour, and supported by the city council among others. Besides being a lab for experiments and processes of social and technological innovation and co-production, Fabriken also provides a platform for networking and matchmaking between the users. All activities happening at Fabriken strive to follow a sustainable, and an open source approach, which are two of the guiding principles behind the Fabriken concept. Instead of offering the users a “ready-made” lab space the infrastructure behind Fabriken is co-designed together with users in an on-going process. At the PICNIC festival design strategies behind, experiences gained, and lessons learn from this co-design process are presented.
