founded in 2000 by fritz frenkler, f/p design develops products, product systems and services in the fields of industrial design, interface design, brand design, and architecture. everything we do should always make our life easier and safer but also strengthen the recognition of brands. by taking inspiration from the gestaltung philosophy of dieter rams and hfg ulm, we rely on minimalism and bring clarity to the world of increasingly complex technology. we work mainly in the fields of industrial design, interface design, architectural design, and communication design. with offices in germany and japan we consult different businesses, from globally renowned companies to innovative startups.
we believe that design is a complex, ever-evolving process that can make our world a better place if approached responsibly. besides functionality of a product and its aesthetic properties, we take into consideration user experience, i.e. the efficiency and simplicity of the utilisation, as well as a range of crucial sociological, environmental and economical aspects.
furthermore, we have a rare opportunity to access the latest technology for research in the technical university of munich (tum), which ultimately gives us a huge advantage in bringing the best quality to our products and services.
f/p design has won more than 75 design awards in the last 22 years, including gold in the g-mark, gold in the german design award, gold in the ddc design award, gold, silver and best of category in the if product design award and best of decade award by the institute für universal design.
when approaching a project, whether it is a single product design or a complex design language (dna) for a big corporation, f/p design always follows a certain procedure to bring your ideas to reality. the design process undergoes several phases of research, development, detailing and presentation. each service has specific process stages which you can read about at the following pages.
f/p design has worked with more than 170 clients in the last 22 years. many of them have become long-term collaborations. we have a great experience designing products and services in six business sectors (medical, laboratory, transportation, industry, office, living).
