Corporate Environments Telling Stories 3form empowers designers with limitless possibilities for achieving corporate design visions with a sustainable approach. Develop design narratives through color, texture, shape, and translucency. In a world of online collaboration and wireless relationships, clients demand designs that powerfully anchor people to their location. Using translucent materials provides a sense of attachment to a structure and more meaningful face-to-face engagement. Infuse the built space with a sense of branded corporate identity. 3form is ready to get into your business.

Two Adams Place Perkins+Will Like a ship’s billowing sails, 3form Shapes form a basket-weave cascade in this four story atrium.
Perkins+Will Office Perkins+Will The Perkins+Will office in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, occupies a two-story loft on the fifth floor. To make optimal use of the height, designers created a sculptural cube that redefines the space with luminous material. The multi-purpose space utilizes natural light via solar tubes above the cube, transforming space through form. The feature serves as both a gallery of the design firmâ€™s work, and an example of it â€“ inspiring visitors and instilling confidence in the firm. Light being central to the concept, but glass being impractical in a freestanding structure and far too expensive, designers immediately recognized that 3form Varia Ecoresin was the perfect fit for the project. Additionally, the sustainable nature of Varia Ecoresin played an important role in the design decision.
“Clients want brand colors to be represented in an elegant, three-dimensional way – not just a painted wall.”

Ed Roberts Campus Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects The Ed Roberts Campus integrates advanced strategies of universal and sustainable design. It is the foremost disability rights center in the world. The sweeping spiral ramp at its center, clad with bold red, is an iconic focus of the entire building, and has actually become the symbol for the organization.
3form materials enabled designers at Leddy Maytum Stacy to meet multiple project goals: durability and impact resistance, low maintenance, memorable translucent aesthetics that avoid an â€œinstitutionalâ€? appearance, a visible glow from the street, and a strong sustainable design story.
The Ashforth Company Roger Ferris + Partners, Architects Designers at Roger Ferris + Partners created an illuminating wood wall that runs 140 feet, the full length of the interior of the lobby. This impressive glowing architectural accent invites the street traffic into the space. The feature suggests warmth, innovation and quality.
One of the major objectives of the project was to change the exterior perception of the building. This was achieved by inviting more natural sunlight into the building in the daytime â€“ and enabling the energy, spirit and creativity of the interior design to spill out to the exterior at night.

When converting an old aircraft manufacturing cafeteria into an inviting new space for Mattel employees, Rottet designers were thrilled to discover the 3form Varia Ecoresin Wave product that could provide a water aesthetic– perfectly solving their dilemma of how to obscure an unattractive view while still allowing daylight through. The translucence and the color achieved the design intent, provided excellent texture, and was easy to install – all while meeting budget goals.
