The look without the weight

Any look and less weight. Whether it’s iron, steel, pewter or titanium; plate, beams, pipes or channels; installation is beyond easy.

Our industrial artisans can hand cast materials with steely realism down to the last rivet, weld, hinge and gusset. Forma commercial replications are a fraction of the weight of the real thing, yet they stand up to years of real-world use and never rust.
