simplicity & experiment
We are living in an era of acceleration.
In our present society, life patterns have become increasingly dynamic and mixed up.
Living, working and leisure are blended more and more.
Monolab’s surveys, strategies and design support the required flexibility from everything and everybody involved.
We design projects that are in sync with the client(s), the end users, the context and all programmatic and environmental requirements.
For each assignment we construct a specific state of mind which reveals previously unseen opportunities and horizons.
Monolab is an ambitious studio for advanced research based design in urbanism, architecture and product development, founded in 1999.
Simplicity (mono) is linked to experiment (lab).
We deliver advanced and synergetic designs through simple and crystal clear concepts with high heartbeats.
Our projects handle complex present and future issues and are therefore fully embedded by merging context and contemporary culture.
We work team wise with young professionals on large and small-scale projects.
The studio has assignments in a wide field: from product and furniture design to villas, from residential projects to urban master plans, from stations and distribution hubs to city cores.
Client demands are shaping our mindsets, as every assignment is unique.
Assignments are opened up, analyzed in-depth and in wide perspectives, in order to reveal all issues.
We invest a surplus of energy during the intense conceptual phases of the design process, the phases in which the most important and key decisions are made.
High complexity is embraced and fuels the design process over and over again.
The studio is lean and mean as the manpower fluctuates with the ever changing quantities of work.
Fast teams move forward in research and 3D-design.
By teaming up with engineering firms we are assured of backup in technical issues and cost & planning control at all times.
