FRD Designers & Makers are a distilled team of talented designers, artisans and engineers who share an enthusiasm for making challenging and beautiful things. We have over 30 years of experience working with leading designers, architects and private clients creating a huge variety of custom made items from bridges to entire product ranges.

Our unique approach is based on mixing highly experienced in-house metalworking with a wide range of disciplines encompassing glass, stone, upholstery and cabinet making. These skills combined with professional project management give our clients complete confidence as we bring their designs to life.

The quality of our work, coupled with our reputation, has fuelled our growth for the past three decades. From the foundation of our purpose built workshop in Dorset we continue to be at the forefront of our industry both in the UK and Worldwide.

An obsession with making.
