Unity of design and fabrication.

Design 2100 is built on the philosophy that knowledge and consideration of both the design and fabrication process go hand in hand to create successful projects. One cannot be considered without the other and we believe that these two elements should be approached as a single indivisible process.

Founded in 1981, Design 2100 has since grown both in size and in expertise and has the capacity to handle a variety of projects of varying size and complexity, involving a diversity of skills, techniques and materials. We are equipped to offer design and/or technical solutions to challenging ideas.

We pride ourselves in providing professional and personalized service and planned the company both physically and philosophically with that goal.

Please take a moment to explore some of our projects on this site and we look forward to helping you realize your next project.
