DYAD INC. is the fabrication side of Douglas Fanning Design. With more than 20 years of experience in fabrication and prototyping, DYAD is a workshop founded in the design and manufacture of home and architectural products. We are able to produce projects for all manner of final application (commercial, retail, fine art and residential). The DYAD team thrives on challenges, be it in the realm of physical engineering, implementation or execution of craftsmanship.

The studio approaches each project uniquely, implementing innovation and engineering know-how in the pursuit of its passion: achieving the goals of its partners and enriching each working experience with greater critical thinking and uncompromising quality standards.



Working with a craftsman or manufacturer can often be a challenging experience, equivalent to that of language translation. DYAD is able to apply its deep understanding of architecture and design engineering from concept to completion.

DYAD has worked closely with some of the best brand names and designers within the fashion, design and interiors categories making it a useful source and guide for its collaborators and clients. DYAD’s team finds great strength in its ability to provide consultation to whatever degree may best benefit the project and need of the client.

Beginning with sketches, shop drawings and moving all the way through the process of 3D modeling and maquette making to the detailed final steps of manufacturing and finishing, DYAD works closely with the designer or artist to approve all related materials.
