CUSTOM ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS
+ COMMISSIONED ART STUDIO
FORMA Beyond occupies the unique architectural design space between art and manufacturing.
We are a manufacturer of custom, commercial architectural elements and a commissioned art studio. Our artists create hand-made surfaces with virtually any look, contour, texture, color or patina for commercial and commissioned projects. We work in composite materials that offer clients the best of all worlds; beauty, durability, pliability, color and cost.
Historic Replications In Composite Materials
We also make absolutely believable historic replications that border on duplication and not only look and feel like the originals, but vastly outperform them as well.
Our goal is to change the way design is approached. For architects and designers to go beyond their visions. To ask, what if, their craziest ideas can actually be made into reality?
CONCEPT DESIGN MANUFACTURING
From Element and Form Concept to Final Installation
FORMA Beyond supplies complete concepts, designs and samples. Once the design is approved, we manufacture the elements from a wide variety of composite materials that best suit the project's unique requirements. We also use state-of-the-art sculpting processes, the latest 5-axis CNC and mold-making technologies and generously apply our expert coloring artistry.
