42 | design fab studio is a full-service design/build studio that provides exhibits, themed environments, and custom creations to a diverse client base both nationally and to the northeast region.

An important part of our job is ensuring that our work gets delivered and installed correctly and on-time.  In order to make that happen, we are personally on-site at installations.  1 year of field service is included in all design contracts.

Being involved in the design process makes switching over to fabrication simple.  With our fully equipped wood shop, metal shop, and casting shop, we are ready to get our hands dirty. ​

Our clients usually come to us with an idea in hand.  From there we work with clients to efficiently work out all the details and come up with a plan of action for fabrication.​



Installation & Maintenence

We primarily deliver exhibits to museum, institutional, and corporate clients. Additionally, we provide custom fabrications to support advertising and marketing, entertainment, corporate and residential clients. We specialize in one-off custom fabrication and short-run production.
