CO:LAB [kəʊ:læb], n.
Co:Lab is a design and research firm based in Chennai, India
Design has always been treated as a process of unilateral decision-making that satisfies the few, alienating a wider audience. However, collaboration between all the agencies involved ensures the delivery of a much more effective design solution. The multitude of voices enrich both the process and the product of design. At the same time, we understand the need for different methods to engage with the multiple parties involved - this is where our passion for experimentation and lateral thinking become crucial. Thus, “Co:Lab,” derived from the words, “collective” and “laboratory”, conveys our belief in the processes of collaboration and experimentation in design.
