Bonded Metal

ImageBonded Metal is a high-performance surfacing material that offers a wealth of design possibilities.

  • Bonded Metal incorporates metal granules in a tough, FRP matrix
  • Lightweight, extremely durable castings have the character and appearance of solid metal
  • Selections are defined by three basic parameters: color + patina + pattern
  • Colors are established by the metal incorporated into the matrix
  • Natural and Dark Patinas provide rich surface contrast
  • Patterns range from subtle textures to bold designs
  • May be specified as sheet goods or in many F+S products

Field-proven for more than 40 years; exclusive to Forms+Surfaces

Elitis – Vases

ImageRRosaria Rattin left architecture school to study fashion in Paris but eventually returned to spatial design through Kose, her brand of handcrafted ceramic accessories. Now she’s thrown some ideas against the wall to see if they stick, and they certainly do. It took two years to perfect a new technique to produce her Vases wall covering for Elitis: Jersey fabric with nonwoven backing is laid over foam then thermo-formed in a mold to create the relief texture. The resulting 49-inchwide roll comes in 3 ¹/³-foot lengths, up to 65 ½ feet long.

Futuristic Wall Covering Ideas


Altera has designed futuristic wall cover for modern home interior design. The simple design was inspired from the bubble shape and the simple design was perfectly combine with the fashionable color pattern. Complete with the separate system of lighting, we can freely use this decoration to be light or not. We can switch on the lamp we the dark was come and switch off when the light was embrace the room. Available in various colors, match with the character design of your home. you can take advantage of these wall coverings as a fluorescent lamp that lit the room of your home, and in the end we do not need a lot more hanging lamp to illuminate the room.

Matter design

-’As part of the research for the Princeton Envelope Group, this envelope was developed in pursuit of an envelope as atmosphere. As opposed to con sid er ing the enve lope as a her metic seal, this facade breaths, conditions, and cleans. This specific prototype is for the American Apparel factory build ing in Los Angeles. Because of the client has an abundance of material and knowledge in fabric, this facade was designed to be fabricated in house, and cast in place with concrete. The thermal mass of this concrete (in conjunction with the designed geometry) cools the air during the warm days in LA.’

Pushkinsky Cinema in Moscow

A film, which is a series of still images or frames moving, or also we can say, this is a “fluidity of frames”. This project is an entry for the Pushkinsky competition located in Moscow. Designed by Gabriel Aranda and Alejandro Ramos. The idea consists in a new skin or façade thought as a sunscreen façade, that works as a barrier between the weather, and the original building. The façade is divided in tree layers: the original one, a curved glazed and a sunscreen façade.

Located on the bank of an artificial pond at the exit of the metro station Osaki. The project deals with the “duality between liquid / solid, real / virtual and water ripples / light waves. Pedestrians walk over a 6 x 6 meters large LED plane, installed right on the edge of the water. The LEDs are covered with translucent glass diffusing their light. With their steps, the passers-by provoke virtual waves on the LED plane, computed in real-time. When these waves hit the edge of the pond, they are extended into the water as real ripples.

Holly Hunt Great Plains Fabric with Nanotechnology

 This technology is kid proof & pet proof, which is ideal for a family life.  The Nono-Tex bonds to the fabric and does not coat it, so it allows the feeling of the textile to come through and still protect against stains.

Nono-Tex protects the surface of fabrics from spills.  Spills just stop, bead & roll.
-Repels oil, red wine, soda & more
-Improves abrasion performance
-Is environmentally friendly
