Who we are

CYENS Thinker Maker Space is a multifunctional creative space that supports local entrepreneurs, designers, artists and researchers. TMS promotes technology led innovation by encouraging the local creative community to develop projects that utilise digital fabrication techniques and rapid prototyping.

The space is open to the public under a membership program, offering easy and free access to cutting edge equipment and professional technical support. TMS organises various exhibitions and delivers numerous talks and workshops. These initiatives provide an important milestone and a point of reference for creatives, not only for Cyprus and the eastern Mediterranean but also internationally.

CYENS Thinker Maker Space was designed to meet the standards of a creative innovation hub within Nicosia’s historic centre. The project is co-funded from the European Structural Investment Funds E.S.I.F, allocated to Nicosia Municipality for the implementation of its Sustainable Urban Development Strategy “SUDS”.

The custom, data-controlled (CNC) Paste Extruder, designed and built by the makerspace team, serves as a medium of engagement with local materiality. It also offers a platform for learning, teaching, and experimenting. It’s 1st task: 3D printing clay. Local and visiting collaborators helped bring this task to fruition during the “Turning the Wheel” event (11-23 May 2022).
