The Cardan Group was established in 2004 as a product design consultancy

After working as a staff product designer since 1992 and freelance since 1999, in 2007 in conjunction with Nomadic Solutions,  Andrew Stolp designed and launched the LifestyletableTM into the caravan and RV industry. The LifestyletableTM very quickly became a standard item included with many caravans. In 2017 the ownership of the LifestyletableTM was transferred completely to The Cardan Group. Production is now located at The Cardan Group’s factory in Moorabbin VIC and improved with some automation and process refinement.

The Cardan Group has now developed into a designer, manufacturer and distributor of an increasing range of products designed specifically for the RV industry. We still provide our product design services to many other industries. Most of our new projects come from referrals by our satisfied customers.

Some of the products shown on our website were designed and are supplied exclusively for some manufacturers and are not available for sale from us. They are shown here to show our capabilities. Please talk to us if you have a specific requirement.


The Cardan Group has designed many products over the years. Some we have provided design services only. Others we have taken all the way through to manufacture and distribution.

We have in-house 3D CAD using Solid Edge, 3D printing, CNC routering, small part plastic injection moulding, an automated aluminium extrusion saw, and both prototyping and assembly workshops.
