One of the first, and most unique, coworking spaces in Singapore, Mox is perfect for creative communities who need more than just hot desks and plug points to charge their laptops with. It’s fully equipped with 3D printers, laser cutters, carpentry tools and working stations with design software. It also has rooms designed for specialized purposes – such as a fully equipped sewing room and a photography studio.
Day passes start at $30 per day, or $180 for 10 days. Monthly passes start at $300 for a flexi desk, $400 for a permanent desk, and $500 for a desk in a private room that can house between 3-12 people.
Perhaps the biggest perk of Mox is its retail storefront that allows members to display their work for sale. This coworking space is truly a godsend for those in the handicraft and design industries as all the aforementioned equipment can be quite expensive, and nearly impossible to obtain, for those who are just starting out in their careers. Mox also has regular working spaces that can accommodate up to 200 people.
