AULA X Space

Hub, co-working space, product development center. Named after the auditorium of the former pedagogical academy in Graz, AULA X Space combines all these characteristics and offers a temporary as well as long-term seat for companies. The aim is to anchor an international network in the UNESCO City of Design. AULA focuses on different sectors of the local (creative) industries and international companies that want to establish themselves in Graz.

The managing directors Joerg Kahlbacher and René Gradwohl state that in the beginning of AULA X Space there was the idea of offering a network to start-up companies, in particular out of the design business, so that they could market their products. Thus, the business model of AULA consists of two fields: AULA Design and AULA Co-Working.

AULA Design, headed by Matthias Burhenne, comprises a world-wide network of designers, who support companies in developing new products and ideas. The mission is ‘from the idea to marketability’, based on a current pool of 36 international designers, with upward tendency.
