Krown Lab is a design and manufacturing company with its head quarters in Portland, Oregon. We specialize in the creation of high quality products for modern and contemporary dwellings and interior space. We pride ourselves in designing clever product solutions that are highly iconic, yet perfectly timeless.

We focus on performance, rather than believing that form follows function or vice versa.

We battle with complexity, strive for simplicity and believe that less really is more. All our products have been distilled down to their purest form and function, with every detail of every part justified.

Everyone in the office is regularly contributing his or her ideas and thoughts to the ongoing product design and development work. Krown Lab’s product road map extends beyond architectural hardware into new categories of products related dwelling and interiors.
