COLLAB [kuh-lab] is short for Collaboration.  That means we want to create something amazing with you.

We are all about making things.  COLLAB is a design studio committed to creating work that is innovative and unique.  We love constraints because they inform our design decisions and shape our process.  COLLAB’s design approach is localdigital, and collaborative, generating contemporary design at the intersection of material, function, and process. All of our work is the result of extensive experience as well continuing research and experimentation with materials and fabrication techniques.

Each project is developed with a commitment to sustainability and reinvestment in our community by working closely with local artists, designers, and fabricators in the St. Louis metropolitan area. COLLAB was founded in 2011 by Albie Mitchell.


COLLAB is a collaborative design studio specializing in interior design, product design, custom casework, modern furniture, digital fabrication, and unique installations.

Bring us a problem and we will work with you to create a solution that is elegant and functional.  Collab offers clients design research such as programming and design thinking to explore each client’s unique circumstances and the potential for a design based solution. We also offer  concept development, design documents including bid drawings and shop drawings, cost estimates, and project management services to allow clients to visualize and understand their design and how it meets their needs and impacts their budget.


We aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty.  We fabricate custom designs in house and offer CNC router fabrication on our machine (bed size 25″ x 49″).  Our router will cut parts out of woods, plastics, non-ferrous metals, foam, and more.  Our fabrication services allow us to be your single source for your custom project.
