We are creative
Innovative materials and meaningful colours are just like a second language to us. We share our expertise with clients and partner businesses to build together promising visions in CMF (colours, materials and finishings).
We make it feasible
We support companies and professionals who wish to turn their ideas into commercially viable products. We do this by guiding them on the discovery of materials and details they did not know before.
Our expertise in CMF design covers a broad range of industries, from interior design, transportation, fashion and accessories, to sporting goods. We don’t fancy limits really.

and strategic design experts
Baolab professionals work at enhancing the sensorial qualities of a product, in consideration that consumers are most likely to link to their personal use or experiences.
A competent re-design of the object’s “soft” characteristics – colour, materials and surfaces – can very often set new sensorial and functional values, without having to turn its production process upside down. A well-defined CMF project does help the end user perceive a product at its best.
