Steel and wood railroad tie replications are made from lightweight, high-impact Class A fire retardant foam. Bridge arches made from lightweight GFRC. Bar Rustic, Kingston, MA.


FORMA Beyond inspires architects and designers to go beyond their visions. To ask, what if, their craziest ideas can actually be made into reality? Our artists can create custom surfaces with virtually any look, texture, color or patina. We also make absolutely believable commercial replications that border on duplication and not only look and feel like their real counterparts, but vastly outperform them as well. Our hand-crafted products are made to meet the intents of the architects and designers at the budgets of the builders and owners.


FORMA Beyond can supply complete concepts, designs and samples. We work in a wide variety of composite materials to best suit the unique requirements of each project. Once approved, we manufacture the looks using our 5-axis CNC capabilities, expert mold-making technologies and coloring artistry. And we install everything we make. 

The FORMA Beyond process is efficient and helps clarify architectural projects. It provides the architect and designer with the exact aesthetic they desire, removes the installation burden from the builder and produces low cost and beautiful installations.

FORMA Beyond creates it products from Class A fire-retardant high-impact urethane foam, Epoxy Cold Cast™, Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC), Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG), Epoxy Resin or Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) depending on the physical and technical requirements of each application.
