About OOOD

Out Of Order Design is a creative consultancy and fabrication studio based in London, founded in 2017.

We deliver a broad range of work from high-end bespoke van conversions, prefabricated garden studios, client work and our own range of home-work furniture. We are a fast growing company and require skilled carpenters/makers/fabricators to work from our workshop on client projects, with our current design and build team.

The projects we deliver are always different from the last so things are never dull. We are professional and dedicated but don’t take ourselves too seriously and we like to have a laugh.
