Creative Partners & Agents

Smith of Derby partner with the world’s leading artists and designers to realise their visions. With a long history in precision clockmaking, we are specialists in collaborating with architects, manufacturing and installing architectural features, timepieces, exterior and public clocks around the world.


We frequently work closely with creative partners in the production of art and architectural installations. We are happy to work with artists and designers who might have a germ of an idea that they would like to explore with us or a more developed design that we can then bring to life.

As clockmakers, we are proud of our creativity and our passion for the ‘expression of time’ and have applied our precision skills in the manufacture of public clocks to the production of kinetic architectural pieces and the engineering and installation of public art.

Our design team works closely with creative partners from around the world exploring and developing ideas in the Expression of Time.

If you have a commission or an idea or need something unusual as a feature of your project, then call us and see how easy it is to bring your vision to life from our workshops in Derby.  Smith of Derby also has a network of international agents who represent us globally and who will be pleased to support you locally.
