Values

The backbone of all Abl Bla Lab experiences is full body integration in action symbolized by the company name:

Abl(e) = Capacity to
Bla = move a message
Lab = by playing it

Collaborative design is rooted in relational friendliness, in sustainable and responsible development, both social and environmental. We use research-proven methods that include living lab, collective intelligence and human-centered emotional intelligence.

Our mission is to connect humans to amplify beneficial social connections through games. At the intersection between events, game design and social innovation, we aspire to play in presence to help humans regain their ability to collaborate, have fun and develop their natural collective and creative intelligence.
