About Us

Art meets engineering. Design meets craft. Bert Frank is an award-winning British lighting and accessories brand whose luxury products are made exclusively in the UK. 

Bert Frank was founded in 2013 by designer Robbie Llewellyn and engineer Adam Yeats, both of whom share a passion for life-enhancing design and deep respect for the heritage of British engineering. Employing highly skilled machinists and vastly experienced fabricators, they combine age-old manufacturing techniques with cutting-edge technology to explore materiality and drive their design process forward.

How would you describe your style?

"Bert Frank’s original and contemporary lighting designs oppose the throwaway culture we live in today. From Art Deco and Bauhaus to Mid-century, the brand takes inspiration from classic and industrial architectural styles to create products that exude timeless modernity. There are no shortcuts, no compromises in quality, just beautiful products made to last a lifetime."

"Despite their use of cutting-edge, computer-aided machinery, Bert Frank lamps are very much ‘hand-made’ items produced in small numbers, often to meet precise specifications – as near bespoke as possible. A select range of finishes like brushed brass, dark bronze, satin nickel and antique brass encourage unique designs, with the flexibility to tweak dimensions and alter brass parts to suit one-off spaces. Hospitality and commercial projects reveal a new level of grandeur, large custom canopies and chandeliers; the possibilities are endless."
