Supplyframe Design Lab

Supplyframe, USA

The Supplyframe DesignLab is the ultimate creative workspace. As home to renowned institutions of design and technology, including Caltech, ArtCenter College of Design and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena has long been a creative hub. The Supplyframe DesignLab offers designers, engineers and artists a playground for innovation. The 4,900 sq. ft. lab is a leading edge creative center built to foster new ideas in technology and design. The space combines areas for brainstorming, rapid prototyping and fabrication as well as a gallery and assembly space for community events. 

While current trends in workplace design focus on spaces that are light, airy and warm, the DesignLab is stark, industrial and serious to encourage the raw energy needed to create. As Cory Grosser says, “The lab is not a warm loft concept, but a design inspired by caffeine-fueled all-nighters, late night coding sessions and underground skunkworks. It’s a place designed for radical innovation.”
