FAQ

Can I visit you?

We love to have visitors but can’t always accommodate all the requests. Please send us a message with some information about you, why you’d like to visit us, the date(s) when you’d like to come over and we’ll try to make it happen. Student groups are also welcome to reach out!

Can I join your co-working space?

Right now we don’t have any available spots, but if you’d like to know more about the conditions and eventually join the waiting list you can contact us and we’ll take it from there.

What's your history?

The Saftladen Collective was founded in 2015 by┬áMaschinen-Mensch and┬áStudio Fizbin. We started with 10 desks / members at our first location, now we’re at 50 and have moved into the fourth office space in June 2023.

What's up with your name?

Our first co-working space used to be a “Saftpresserei” (juice factory). You could still read the old sign on that building. The name is a play on that and the fact that a Saftladen (juice shop) in colloquial German designates an unprofessional business (which we are not). Also good games are juicy. So there you go.
