BEYOND GYPSUM

Custom, Dinosaur Egg reception desk, hand sculpted from GFRG, commissioned by Bower, Boston.

FUTURE STYLES FROM TRADITIONAL MATERIALS

FORMA mixes high-art with everyday functionality in creating modern replications, classic shapes and hand-sculpted surfaces from exceptionally strong Gypsum and glass fiber reinforced gypsum (GFRG). The time-tested gypsum materials provide high strength and durability along with unlimited design flexibilities.

We provide design concepts, CAD, custom samples, engineering, shop drawings and project management. And specialize in custom commissioned artwork
