Neue Artisans is founded by BandLab: The Studium, and organised together with a collective of design enthusiasts. The initiative was to organise a design showcase in support of the ever-developing local design industry, seeking to explore improved/new techniques, experiments on possibilities and components in design, art and architecture. We encounter a pool of emerging talents here in Malaysia and the region. Neue Artisans brings together this network, and is becoming a leading design-trade show for emerging design-makers here.

To share the story of Neue Artisans, our pilot showcase was hosted by Space.W by Wayangworks, in Dataran Ara Damansara, in 2012 gathering about eight designers/artisans. Based on the positive feedback and support, Neue Artisans 2.0 gathered 16 local designers and creative makers on March 9th 2013 hosted by Studio by The Spacemen in Kota Damansara. The third installation, Neue Artisans 3.0 was held in April 2014, at the Annexe Gallery, Central Market, Kuala Lumpur, and brought together more designers, craftsmen, artisans and makers. Each event introduced a new component that complements and develops this initiative. The latest, being Neue Artisans 4.0, was held for two days (12 & 13 November 2016) at the Prototype Gallery Exhibition Space, Level 4, of Wisma Central, Jalan Ampang, in center Kuala Lumpur.

Thematised "Technique"/ "Teknik",
Neue Artisans 4.0 had three main components to the event,
