Founded by Steve Roberts and Tom Fripp in 2004, Fripp Design and Research help its clients to realise their product concepts and ideas, and redesign existing products to help businesses compete in the workplace.

Steve said: “We’re a customer focused business – we solve complex problems for business in terms of product design. No two projects are the same – we work with big blue chip companies and small independent businesses, to give them an advantage and keep them one step ahead of their competitors.”

Fripp Design and Research have designed products for a range of national and local businesses, including sweets for Nestle which included GPS tracking to help them find competition winners and medical equipment for Ophthalmic Medical Instruments. They’re at the forefront of 3D printing and developing revolutionary silicon-made prostethics.

The free exhibition will run at the gallery until January 8.
