The Story Behind Fabelab

Fabelab stems from a world of imagination


As an architect and mother of two, founder Michaela Weisskirchner-Barford was inspired to develop innovative products made for cuddling, playing and everyday use.


Creating the Fabelab universe, Michaela combined her love for children with her background in architecture and scenography, spacial principles and storytelling, into functional and inspiring designs to encourage childhood fantasy.

From the very beginning Michaela made an effort to keep an honest and sustainable approach to design, always with a keen eye on all the little details.

Her dream has been to make functional, aesthetic, sustainable and long-lasting interior design and products for kids.

Fabelab believe in high quality products and innovative design which always contribute to our children’s imagination. The products encourage play, experimentation and creativity. Fabelab believe in the power of storytelling and therefore the products always have a story behind them to create a playful universe where your imagination can run wild.
