Hbr creative platform is a genuine fab lab (manufacturing laboratory) providing various tools for making objects such as printers and 3D scanners, which allow designers to quickly move from concept to prototypes. The company is a collaborative place of experimentation for Lebanese makers focused on sustainable design.

Hbr creative platform encourages learning through social settings. The workshops are organized and have an open house on Fridays. At these “Open Fridays”, the company invites participants to innovate and create using recycled materials to fall in line with sustainable lifestyles.

We are not only product designers, we design social innovation services promoting sustainable living and the collaborative economy. Nelly Baz, associate director at Hbr creative platform.
