"We create functional and AESTHETIC pieces by optimizing traditional CRAFTSMANSHIP with digital technologies." 


Born from an overflowing enthusiasm for design and craft, Further Fabrication uses the design process to create solutions with a focus on quality, sustainability and integrity.

Based in Wellington, New Zealand. Every piece is made by hand with care and attention, taking pride in the details and celebrating the making process as a journey - one that imbues each piece with its own unique story.
