Launchlabs belongs to Gundeldinger Feld, a listed building in a former industrial factory close to the main station Basel.

The factory was founded in 1844 with the production of ribbon weaving machines for the silk ribbon manufacturers of the region. Later, machines were also manufactured for sawing, drilling, pressing and pumping. In 1945, after the end of World War II, the factory employed up to 500 workers. At the beginning of the sixties, the alliance was reached with the Sulzer Group. n 1999, the surprising decision to abandon the production site in Basel falls. The newly founded Gundeldinger Feld Immobilien AG bought the property and in the year 2000 handed over responsibility for the conversion of the area of Kantensprung AG.

Launchlabs spaces are prototypes for new technologies and connect people in unconventional ways during events, workshops and corporate seminars. The event hall, with 240 m2, offers countless possibilities thanks to the flexible furniture and equipment combined with the industrial charm.
