In the short period of time of 3 months, the team of Uncover Lab are developing a new type of store. A customization store where they engrave personal designs and quotes with a laser cutter on the spot into any product. With this concept they want to spark a counter revolution to the ‘new is better’ consumerism, which according to them contributes to a non-durable relation with our properties. “We reinforce the bond between owner and object and hope to lengthen the lifespan of the object.”
When entering their temporary store on the Zeedijk, you notice that the team is compiled of only designers; every detail was especially shaped and you’ll never guess that it’s actually a pop-up store (with expection of the crayon drawings on the windows)
Their opening times are a bit unusual: you can go their daily from 15:00 up until 23:00 to have your Moleskines, iPhone cases or wooden sunglasses engraved, while the weekend times are 12:00 to 24:00. But not tomorrow, because they’ll be at the Night Bazaar with their lasers and the team.
Challenge the laser to create a unique item of your iPhone, wooden glasses or Moleskine booklet. At the Night Bazaar, you can let the Trouw logo be lasered into your own product or the beautiful cases brought by Uncover Lab for just €5. You can also have them engrave a personal design or logo from €15 and there’ll be two designers to create you a custom design. And it'll be ready while you wait!
