Proud connector

As mobile devices increasingly dominate our daily routines, we become more and more dependent on them. The M-lab is a retail formula combining Know-How, Repair and Gadgets to help us to survive in our daily mobile life.

Vision: To intuitively understand how things work. Inspired by the low-tech world of Meccano and making things so easy, that even your mum can understand it! An approachable and fun destination where conversation and not confusion are the solutions of the day.

Friendly tech. Colourful and playful. Breaking with the high tech codes of the industry by using low tech materials and connectors. Emphasising the vision to use technology to make life simpler and easier.
