The Ultimate in Form and Function

While taking design classes, I was introduced to a product that had me ooh-ing and ahh-ing. It's called 3-Form and if you haven't yet heard of it, you've probably seen it without realizing it!

3-Form is an ecoresin product (sustainable, recycled co-polyester content) containing color, organic materials, and textures within translucent resin panels. It's most often used to create walls, dividers, doors and other architectural solutions and can be seen anywhere from homes to stores to nightclubs. It can look like wood, stone or glass. The versatility of this stuff is amazing. But even more amazing is how fabulous it looks and the astonishing effects you can create with it!

Here are some swatch examples of 3-Form. In person, a swatch is about the size and thickness of a piece of tile:

And here are some examples of how it can be used (Click pictures to zoom):

Chandeliers, headboards, walls, room dividers, table tops, backsplashes...the list goes on. Basically, if you can dream up the idea, you can do it with 3-Form. The stuff is pretty impressive.

For more inspiration, information, and pictures, visit the 3-Form website.
