Space is the Place // New Co-Work Space for Fashion Industry in Hamburg

By  |  0 Comments

Growing up in the northern part of Germany I still have a lot of friends in this area and this keeps me having an eye on the scene.

Hamburg City was always on of my big Loves in the German Landscape. The new collective space FORMSCHOEN is very good reason to put this northern light once more on the map. The Hamburg based Fashion Designer Sarah Bürger founded a very beautiful space for building up a new creative concept with main focus on the fashion manufacturing industry.

The FORMSCHOEN as a collective co-working space is all about bringing designers and people working in the industry together. In the end it results all into a symbiosis of creative people enriching each other in their working process. A photographer, for example, needs the clothes for his/her production, whereas the fashion designer depends on the photographer to put every dress in the right spotted scenario. All people involved in such productions, also graphic designers or filmmakers, find at FORMSCHOENS a spacious platform to work together.The 210 square meter fabric building provides working space with lots of light, high ceilings and communal areas.

Fashion from Hamburg is created here!

The Facilities are equipped with industrial sewing machines and iron facilities, as well as two large cutting tables. If you want to use them you can benefit from one of three flat rates and thus flexible working on own projects, you are involved in a community. The team of FORMSCHOEN consist out of young designers next to fashion lecturers and amateur sewers. The exchange and networking between these passionate people is a great asset for this concept and often gives constructive exchanging feedback.

„Space is the place“ and wherever there is much room ideas can emerge. Here is light and space, 7m high ceilings and turn of the century architecture are contributing to its special charm. The space can also be used for events or workshops. Last but not least FORMSCHOEN also offers a Co-Working Office space with a nice view.The shared-office sector has seen growth in recent years and that swell is only going to continue once more in this beautiful surrounding of young creatives in Hamburg.
