We are bright designlab.

We make our own rules.
We create spaces we believe in and would live in at the drop of a hat.

Our design is authentic and approachable. Our process is rigorous and organized. We are focused on the details. After all, that’s what makes up the bigger picture.

Tell us your story. We will listen. We will ask questions and collaborate with you to land on a solution that will not only attain your goals, but hopefully delight you.

We seek clients and projects that center on making a positive difference in the world.  Whether that is making the perfect tarte Tatin in your kitchen, or giving your restaurant the best context for people to experience the full concept of your food. Working across residential, restaurant, hospitality and retail in the Portland, Oregon area and beyond. Each space is designed to be truly lived in, with the intention to make life easier and unquestionably more beautiful.
