A pioneer in exploring the Art of Water, Bluworld is a product design company that specializes in water features for commercial and residential interiors. Bluworld's 30,000 sq ft manufacturing facility and design studio is located in Orlando, FL. Products are shipped worldwide to a variety of consumers and water enthusiasts. As the leader of exquisite water design, Bluworld's dedication to quality assures a product far superior to anything else in the market.

Often clients will have an area dedicated to a water feature, but they will not have a specific design in mind. Bluworld designs custom water features to fit our client's needs. Our designers have years of water-feature design and manufacturing experience and can create a visually-stunning feature that will perform for years to come. Once Bluworld is commissioned to design the feature, we will present you with preliminary options and will produce a full-color rendering for your review.

Bluworld works internationally. Bluworld has installed custom water features in Bermuda, Kuwait, Uruguay and Dubai, U.A.E. International installations always pose challenges logistically but Bluworld works diligently to assure our clients that we can handle all aspects of the project from design consultation all the way through to full installation. Bluworld will send its own installation crews (typically the same crew that assembled the feature) all the way to the site, no matter how far around the globe.
