Needlab focuses on unveiling new ways of creating a dialog between local materials, social practices, and environmental forces.

Students learned the complete cycle of production, from digital design to fabrication. The participants designed and fabricated furniture in the workshop, using Rhinoceros 3D software (3D modeling software) and Rhino CAM software used for CNC fabrication. The feedback loop between the digital design and physical construction enhanced their learning. At the end of the workshop, the participants experienced not only designing, furniture but also building it.

We did a factory visit to do the test fabrication with the state of the art Italian CNC machine, after which the designs were manufactured.

The workshop was held from July 20th – 25th, after which there was a Gallery Show of the digitally fabricated furniture on 26th & 27th.

Amala Akkineni, Indian Film actress joined us at The Gallery Show at Collab House.
She spent time learning the design process the students went through to Digitally Fabricated the Furniture. She was also keen on learning about Maker spaces and its contribution to the modern world.

The Hyderabad Artist’s Meet-1

Collab House is back with The Hyderabad Artist’s Meetup, version 2.  

The Hyderabad Artist’s Meet happens once a month which is an informal and interactive meet up for the artists across the city and everyone interested in arts, it’s the event you wouldn’t want to miss out.

A handful of artists turned up for the very first meetup of this year and it was a success indeed!
The house had seen one of the most amazing art piece, by Meenakshi, that won her 5 awards in exhibitions held in the USA. Each of them shared what art is to them and how does their form of art help them achieve it. It was truly great and inspiring to see such artists create wonderful works!
