For brilliant blue ideas.

A place where science and design meet.

BlueCity Lab is a dry and wet workspace situated in BlueCity, Rotterdam. The combination of these facilities creates the opportunity to make new materials on a cellular level, and develop them into a final prototype.

Our goal is to speed up the transition towards a regenerative economy by realizing prototypes that exemplify the blue economy. This Lab is a place and a platform for the entrepreneurs of BlueCity, als well as for students, scientists, designers and makers — for brilliant blue ideas.

In 10 years, the development centre of the blue economy.

At the heart of the blue city.

Our dry- and wetlab are placed in the old changingrooms of the former Tropicana swimmingpool. The building is near to the centre of the city and creates the possibility to easily collaborate with local businesses and blue pioneers.

For everyone who is having blue ideas.

We want to create a platform where the richness of nature is in our products and services, with a collective of people who operate on the edge of science and design.

Through this dynamic community, combined with the facilities of the lab and its location, designers and scientists, we have great expectations of the concepts, products, ideas and collaborations will see the first light in our lab.
