Delaforja is dedicated to the production of functional and decorative metal work of the highest quality.
All of Delaforja's creations are designed, or co-designed, by Australian designer artisan,
Nyree L. Smith. She, with other specialized metal artisans in Australia and Spain,
individually hand craft the pieces, each one unique and special.
Our aim is to influence contemporary design trends towards incorporating concepts of longevity and symbolic significance to our functional, everyday objects. We think beyond the modern day concept of “design for disassembly” and consider the everyday object as having lasting value, functionality and restorability for many generations to come.

Inspired by the natural world we search for charged symbols that have evolved with us for millions of years. Each design tells a story and through these stories we are reminded of our strong connection to nature's intricate rhythms and symmetries.
