we are Depot Lab
We were born out of a Dutch concept store in Barcelona in April 2016. We encourage a large variety of different sectors and backgrounds to join our community. The support, synergies and friendships created by using shared workspace is what motivates us the most about our business.
We would love to personally show you around, introduce you to our team and have a chat over some mint tea or a freshly brewed coffee. We can then discuss your individual requirements and how we can best support you in providing the environment of your choice.
Our goal is to ensure that your experience is not only productive, but also fun, dynamic and truly inspiring.
Our coworking platform is built on the following pillars: honesty, authenticity, inspiration, innovation, enjoyment, creativity, collaboration and, of course, Dutch sobriety.
Through the initiatives on our platform, our mission is to work, learn, connect, and grow — both as individuals and as a community.
Our vision is to provide entrepreneurs, freelancers, and startups the opportunity to work in an inspiring space, become part of our community, and bring life to their game-changing ideas.

FOUNDER / SPACE DIRECTOR aka “mamager”
deborah v. oziel
Deborah comes from Andorra, she also has roots in Spain, Morocco…. We can easily say that she is a citizen of the world and a beautiful mix between all those origins. Everyone would describe her as a sunshine, the smile that you need during challenging days, the “ama de la casa” and her house is the coworking. Without any doubt, the biggest heart you’ll ever meet in your life, her generosity and her presence might be the thing you need in your life. Mom of two or maybe three because she also considers her coworking as her child, she is a vibrant, funny and very-open minded spirit who sparkles your workplace with so much love that you would feel as cozy as in your own place.
founder / space director aka “the flying dutchman”
renzo van dijk
Renzo comes from the Netherlands. Yes we know, it doesn’t sound so good when you start a sentence like that but, you’ll be surprised to witness how an expatriate Dutchy could behave in a city like Barcelona. He just turned 50 and we can easily see it by the length of his beard but he still conserves a young, creative & innovative spirit which is a delight to have next to you on a daily basis. He also dj’s when he has time, always ready to drop a bass or a smile to illumine instantly your feelings.
Space / Event Manager
Axelle is from Ghent, Belgium. This makes her appearance dual: straight and serious from the outside, but sweet and lovely from the inside. So give her a bit of time and she will show you her wonderful inside ;-) She did an internship at Depot Lab in 2017, then finished her study and travelled a few months in Asia and Down Under. Until the moment she realized that Barcelona was her city and Depot Lab her place! For all your questions, suggestions, talks (and gossip): Axelle is your woman!
cfo aka “the captain”
Albert is our financial conscience. Barcelona born, Catalan, hiker, Mediterranean food lover, and in spite of his grey hair, open-minded, startup lover and open for all new things in life; personal and business. Albert tries to set our financial course and teaches us that finance is fun and useful. In return we show him all about the new economy and the millennial generation.
Community manager aka “spicy manager”
Rob is our community manager. He not only demonstrates a great virtuosity with social media, but he also endures high spicy levels. This deeply affects his personality, which is ironic and acidic. He´s always ready to take the best photo of your life and upload it to our social media, your mother will be very proud of you. Rob loves oniric environments, bright spaces and ginger.
