Colab is the first purpose-built material library in the UAE. Located in Dubai Design District (d3), Colab is a social business venture that functions primarily as a material library and inspiration and learning center. The space aims to elevate design across the region by offering a platform to showcase the latest materials and design trends from across the globe whilst highlighting excellence in regional design as well.

Colab also serves as a gallery, event and activation space, and networking hub in its bid to bring the entire creative community together. Colab aims to serve as a resource for the A+D community here in Dubai and the wider Middle East by throwing light on new and innovative materials that aren’t currently being specified in the region. The ultimate goal is to provide material inspiration for users and a one-stop solution for your material sourcing needs.
