Glass Solutions is working with bespoke furniture and lighting designers FRD Ltd to produce individual lighting installations for both private and public spaces.

Jane Kavanagh, Operations Manager at FRD, explained: “FRD creates unique lighting and furniture for the high end interior design market, from restaurants and public areas to private dwellings and super yachts.We have a strong global reputation, working with architects, designers and private clients in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Far East and USA to produce truly bespoke pieces. Although we are known for our metalwork, our designers often use glass to complement specific aspects of our pieces, and we have worked with Glass Solutions for a number of years to help us achieve the right aesthetic for individual projects.”

“We originally contacted the company to manufacture a series of large diameter glass tubes for chandeliers, as we couldn’t find any other supplier capable of producing something on the scale we required. They pulled out all the stops on that project – the service we received was truly exceptional – and we have since gone back to them a number of times, for everything from simple chandelier components to large complex pieces. We often push the boundaries of what is possible, but the Glass Solutions team is always up for the challenge, and we rarely have to compromise. You live and die by tolerances in this industry and, when we supply a design to Glass Solutions, we can always be confident that the glass is going to match the metalwork precisely.”
