Bert Frank article - Illuminating: the making of Bert Frank's luxury lighting

Bert Frank featured in the quarterly issue of Design, the Observer's quarterly design magazine showcasing the best and newest ideas and products.

The article covers the chance meeting of co-founders Robbie Llewellyn and Adam Yeats and their shared love of engineering which led to the foundation of the award-winning British design brand in 2013. 

The article visually explores the traditional manufacturing techniques utilised at Bert Frank’s metalwork factory in the heart of the UK’s Birmingham city centre industrial quarter. The metal pressworks has for more than 50 years historically produced lighting, from decorative interior lighting for the home to hardy exterior lighting traditionally used in the UK’s dockyards. 

Celebrating Bert Frank’s breadth of experience and specialised engineering the behind-the-scene feature highlights the production of machined brass, the hallmark of the brand and the lustrous material at the heart of each of its 26 collections.
