Who We are?

COLAB, is a design collaborative between Conception and artists and designers both local and international who are ready to create and embrace new design concepts and are eager to make them a reality. 

COLAB provides a space for people with different expertise, from architecture to art, to fashion to product engineering as well as many others to join forces and bring these new ideas to life. In other words it is a collaborative ‘concept lab’, a place to observe, investigate, experiment, and ultimately design and manufacture through collaborations with all the best the design world has to offer. 

COLAB aims to create a platform for all aspects of design to come together, to conceive, create, collaborate and communicate, and showcase new ideas. To do thisCOLAB will approach leading, up and coming as well as obscure members of the design scene and invite them to present their ideas, display their products, discuss potential projects, work with Conception and other collaborators to move forward and make these concepts a reality. 

COLAB will hold regular seminars, workshops, exhibitions and Pecha Kucha to reach out to designers as well as members of the public who are interested in discovering what is new and ready to be uncovered.
