Public and kinetic art

Smith of Derby have a rich history and pedigree in the production of public art. We partner with the world’s leading artists and designers to realise their vision. As world class art fabricators we work only within the constraints of the imaginations of the creative people we collaborate with.


Smith of Derby have a long history in precision clockmaking, and are specialists in collaborating with architects, manufacturing and installing architectural features, timepieces, exterior and public clocks around the world.


Through our precision engineering background and our state of the art workshops in our base in Derby, we have also developed a reputation for the creation of precision kinetic architectural installations and public art projects in exterior and public settings.  


Our partnerships with leading artists and designers have brought kinetic installations to life from the original visions.
