After 32 years of creative, successful and prize-winning designing, Ulrike Umlauf-Orrom and James Orrom closed down their Studio for Industrial Design at the end of 2019. This website is an archive of their creations during this time.

The Studio was founded in 1987 by the postgraduate designers Ulrike Umlauf-Orrom M.A. RCA und James Orrom M.Des. RCA. Since then they produced both formally and functionally innovative industrial design for a broad range of international clients.

“Our design experience in widely differing areas has only been possible by maintaining an up-to-date knowledge of materials, production techniques and above all having a clear design method. By using the latest 3D-CAD programmes we can produce solutions to match the compressed development times and budgets of our demanding clients.”

“We see industrial design as a creative, interactive cooperation with our clients. It is only through flexibility and mutual trust that optimised, efficient solutions can be achieved. Not just the production turnovers, but also the many design prizes and awards reflect the economic and aesthetic success of our designs”

Ulrike Umlauf-Orrom is also an internationally renowned glass artist, her website is here
