FUNCTIONAL ART BEYOND IMAGINATION

3D FORMS  •  ELEMENTS  •  REPLICATIONS  •  RESTORATIONS

FORMA specializes in light weight, functional art: 3D FORMS, Architectural Elements, Industrial Replications and Historical Restorations.

We work in close collaboration with the most progressive architects and designers in the industry to make handmade, one-of-a-kind art that helps transform their unique inspirational visions and dreams into vivid 3D reality.

We accomplish this through our unique state-of-the-art CNC and mold making technologies and firm understanding, and years of experience, in advanced materials science. We work with a wide variety of materials allowing us to best suit the particulars of each project. Each material offers a combination of high strength, low weight and a long life of maintenance-free performance. We also finish each creation with super-durable, colorfast industrial-strength paints, stains, sealers and colorations.

We also provide a variety of ASTM E-84 Class A, rated fire retardant materials including MDF and composite polyurea that is also rated UL723 Class A.
