About Us

Co:Lab is a design and research collaborative based in Chennai, India. Our approach believes in the power of the collective – while dealing with any project, we pool in knowledge and resources from an established network of collaborators, including architects, artists, designers and researchers, to deliver unique, layered and contextualised solutions.

Too many cooks spoil the broth, you say? Nah, we’d rather favour the ideology of ‘the more the merrier’.
