The CAMA Design Lab is where our design thinking occurs in collaboration with our clients, their teams, and our associates who are the field’s top thought leaders. Utilizing an evidence-based methodology, the Lab strives to unearth the appropriate questions that frame the design challenges we need to solve for our clients. The Lab allows this to percolate and then shares its design thinking and subsequent knowledge gained through a variety of venues, workshops, deep dives, case studies, project play books, lectures and publications.
The CAMA Design Studio takes the intelligence gathered specifically for the design problem and couples it with baseline knowledge and professional expertise in order to develop evidence-based design interventions. The design studio’s process defines, solves, communicates, and implements the design documents needed to build out and appoint interior environments for the best possible results.
The CAMA Collection, LLC is addressing the gap in the kit-of-parts needed to fully develop interior environments that impact human behavior. The intelligence gained from each project’s performance leads to new ideas and opportunities to improve anyone’s Life Indoors. In our work as thought leaders and as design practitioners, we have partnered with publishers, artisans, and manufacturers in the launch of this collection.
Designing Life Indoors
improve the experience
At CAMA, we help people understand how their experiences with interior environments are directly related to the design interventions that we investigate through an evidence-based design methodology. The body of knowledge gleaned from this methodology has clearly established a link between the investment that we make in thoughtfully designing our built environments and the impact that those environments have on our health and wellbeing. Sharing our stories of real people and the places they live, learn, work, play, and heal inspires us to design a better life indoors.
