Sawyer Maker Lab (SML) is a Seattle design build firm with over a decade of experience in all aspects of design, construction and fabrication.
SML is dedicated to preserving the integrity of design through utility and the honesty of the construction through craft.
The architecture, furniture, designs, and residential projects seen here are the works of Jason Sawyer [principal] and occasional collaborators.
SML is also a signifier for the scale of work produced in the lab:
S (Small): Components, hardware, industrial design, objects.
M (Medium): Furniture, storage, workspaces, instalations.
L (Large): Residential/small commercial architecture, structures, remodels.
"The details are details. They make the product.
It will in the end be these details that give the product its life."

"When I draw something,
the brain and the hands work together."
– Tadao Ando
"Design should solve problems,
not create more of them."
– Jason Sawyer, SML
