„Creative. Precise. Careful. His designs are characterized by their durability and intelligent use.“  
Viefe about Frank Person

Industrial design and product design studio.


Since 1999 the design office fp.formgebung in Darmstadt has been developing products for manufacturers of consumer and capital goods in various industries managed by industrial designer (dipl. designer) Frank Person. The design of everyday objects is our matter.

Requirements are a concise, clear and appealing design, self-explanatory, easy handling and optimal functionality.

The focus is on the goal of achieving the highest possible material and manufacturing quality and balanced economy, both in terms of consumption and use, and not least in terms of aesthetics.

Cooperation with other disciplines, craftsmen and manufacturers form a proven and solid basis that has grown over the years.

In-depth knowledge of different materials and various manufacturing methods are a decisive advantage.

The prerequisites for good cooperation are openness, optimism and mutual respect.  

"It is my firm conviction to find the design approach based on an economically appropriate use of form, function and material, in the sense of the "beautiful, true and good".

It is a tightrope walk on the cutting edge between new technology and the familiar. An opportunity and a challenge - for developers and manufacturers.

As a responsible product designer, I see myself as a stimulator and mediator and see my task in finding concepts, working out the essentials, developing products together that follow the principles of "good design".

Basis is the responsibility towards future generations, technologically and ergonomically sensible and consistently sustainable."
