A new 7,200 sq. ft. 3D printing and virtual reality lab is to be opened by Hobs Studio in East London, with plans to initiate a 3D academy that will help build a talent pool of 3D specialists.
As part of the Here East site – home to Plexal, Europe’s largest innovation ecosystem, Loughborough University London, UCL, BT Sport, and with Ford also set to open its European Smart Mobility Office – Hobs’ new base will employ around 30 people and provide a range of visual and 3D printing services.
“We wanted to be part of East London’s thriving creative scene and Here East was the natural choice for our new headquarters as we looked to expand in the years ahead,” said Hobs Studio managing director Michelle Greeff.
“In the spirit of collaboration, we are looking forward to our affiliation with the Digital Engineering and Test Centre (DETC) and we hope to collaborate further with other tenants at Here East like Loughborough University and UCL.”
