MFGR DESIGNS

01

Welcome. We are MFGR.

Refusing to confine ourselves to the traditional rules of design, we consider ourselves one-of-a-kind, blurring the lines between being an architecture firm, design house, landscape architects and artists. 

Functional art inspired by a life well-lived. This succinct phrase captures the essence of MFGR, but it also represents something much bigger – the promise we make to our customers, employees and ultimately to ourselves. We promise to fearlessly pursue creative satisfaction, whether choosing a line through the trees or welding a seam on a staircase. It’s the reason we do what we do and live where we live. This deep seeded belief informs our use of steel and wood to create stunning, functional pieces of art that are designed to be a part of everyday life. This promise holds us accountable and challenges us to create perfection; to surpass expectations through attention to the smallest details and to build products that tell a story much bigger than our own.

The environment we live in informs the designs we build; our curiosity helps bring those designs to life.

Our Skills

In a world of replications and rip-offs we follow no path other than our own, always searching for a way forward that hasn’t been explored. Our designs stand alone, they are an extension of who we are and what we believe in, they represent a lifestyle and a deep respect for the landscapes surrounding us.

We’re inspired by the materials of the region. We design with purpose and intent to make rad stuff with details that make us standout. We push people beyond what they can even imagine, creating a piece that captures the spirit of the area. You won’t find this anywhere else. No one is making what we make – there’s a little bit of heart and soul in each project.

Rod is our welder and fabricator. He is a quiet soul that is talented at everything he does. IN his first interview he was asked “is this something you want to do?” and he simply replied “Oh ya, I’m into this.” He has a fire in him and he’s still this easy going personality, but he works hard and his growth is exponentially better than so many I’ve worked with in the past. Rod is a true diamond in the rough.
