Located at Plaza Senayan Mall, lifestyle retail space, CO.LAB - a joint collaboration between Lewis & Carroll, Berrywell, Doré by Le Tao and Fabelio - could very well be your one stop spot to access locally made products, from food to homeware products, with ease.

CO.LAB, a lifestyle retail space, may be a new addition in the upmarket mall of Plaza Senayan. But take a look inside and you’ll find that there are familiar faces to be discovered.

A joint collaboration between Lewis & Carroll, Berrywell, DORÉ by LeTAO and Fabelio, CO.LAB aims to provide a one-stop spot where you can find not only offerings from the four names above but also a slew of homeware and healthy organic products by other local brands too.

The clean and almost clinical interior installed with minimalist wooden cabinets and furniture may intimidate others into thinking that CO.LAB is all about serving svelte individuals who have already got their healthy habits down pat. But things are much more easy-going in CO.LAB than one might think.

Sure, those who are watching their calories intake will no doubt gravitate towards smoothie bowl from Berrywell. Still, go ahead and treat yourself by digging into the deliciously soft cheesecake from DORÉ by LeTAO. And if you’re looking to strike a balance between the two sides, Lewis & Carroll takes care of it nicely with satisfying sandwiches, but don’t forget to wash them down with their thirst-quenching ice teas. Wonder where does furniture label, Fabelio fit in CO.LAB? Just cast your eyes to the chair and table that you’re occupying. Like what you see? They are available for purchase too.

As much as there are plenty of morsels to keep you occupied, it’s hardly that one could ever stay still in CO.LAB. Displayed over the cabinets are various products from local brands that easily pique your curiosity, such as the ginger-infused honey from Honey Lane, an assortment of jams from OMA ANNA and even the fine tea set from Lewis & Carroll.

With the concept of merging a café and store together, CO.LAB effectively makes it almost impossible for you leave the place hungry and empty-handed.
