Ten-Second Takeaway

Co-working space Workbench Projects is not just that. They make furniture for themselves and for anybody else who might need minimalist wooden furniture and even puzzles, all with upcycled wood.

Made From Scratch

Under the Halasuru Metro station lies a massive space that is Workbench Projects {such a convenient location and their address also is quite literally Halasuru Metro Station}. The huge sign outside might have caught your eye, but it’s a different story altogether once you’re in. High ceilings with ribbed aluminum sheets, metal and wooden furniture, and the rusticity of it all gives the place a very industrial vibe — they haven’t “prettied it up” on purpose, and that’s what makes it so cool.

Anything wooden that you might see in here, can be bought. They have a ton of things on display including wooden puzzle boxes, parts of a sphere that you need to assemble and even small storage boxes that can be assembled and dismantled at will. From creative wooden tables {Ikea-like foldable ones} to tiny pieces {think tissue holders and miniature calendars}, Workbench Projects houses heavy duty laser cutters and 3D printers to get all this done, and they use only upcycled wood. There are some really cool gun toys and decor pieces made with colourful plastic spools in 3D printers, that you can also have. If you have a specific design in mind, they’ll make that too.

Do It Yourself

Workbench Projects also holds regular wood workshops where you can learn to make these things by yourself {more fun, more satisfaction}. From one-day workshops to three-month long sessions, you can choose and even become an expert. Very soon, they’re going to have a drone making workshop too. If you use the space to work, members get all-access to all of their spaces, products and equipment.
