FDM runs the world's only Internet database that connects furniture designers to interior architects, and at the same time, provides production, quality control and freight of selected items directly to the client. The most unique option an interior architect has after choosing furniture from FDM is to select production site. Depending on the priorities of the client (price issues, deadlines, country of origin, etc.), it is the interior architect that decides whether FDM will produce the ordered items at factories in Norway, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, or China.
These six factories are divided into three different price segments by FDM:
- Volume segment (shipment from two different ports in China, in Shenzhen and Shanghai)
- Mid-Range segment (freight by either container or truck from one port in Lithuania and one port in Poland)
- High End segment (freight by either container or truck from one port in Western Norway and one port in Northern Italy)
"FDM's goal is to give interior architects from all over the world the opportunity to buy new and exclusive design, while at the same time giving furniture designers from all corners of the Globe the chance to make a living as independent furniture designers."
