More about this product

1. Match

Have a corporate Identity to follow or a manuscript with intended materiality? Pure+Freeform is able to help match it. For Intermountain Hospital, HDR was using oxidized copper as the inspiration for a monumental staircase but had concerns with weight, cost, and maintenance of the natural material. By opting for a custom finished aluminum panel with a physical texture, the surface and color are dialed in, while still meeting the needs of the design and space.


2. Redesign

Use any existing finish as inspiration for a material that can be made unique for you. For Boston Dynamics, Pure+Freeform started with Hampton Brass and Pacific Bronze as a base for the hairline and gloss level. The color inspiration was copper, so Pure+Freeform drew on Muntz Metal which is a copper-hybrid. With the addition of their Crystal Basecoat topcoat, the result was a dynamic surface that changes in appearance depending on the angle of interaction from the viewer and the natural and supernatural lighting on the material.


3. Design

You can also start from scratch and create a surface that matches almost any specification. Choices include both metallic and non-metallic materials. The new Chase Center Arena employs Pure+Freeform's metal woodgrain on the exterior soffit, and to maintain design intent, a complimentary yet unique woodgrain was required for the interior monumental staircase and millwork. Pure+Freeform added a layer of physical texture that bestows warmth to the touch, similar to the charcter of veneer.


4. Select

The final way is to keep it simple and pick one of Pure+Freeform's existing materials. With years of inspiration and design to call upon, Pure+Freeform has created a variety of metallic, architectural and patterned finishes to choose from. From elevator cabs to bar wraps, it’s as simple as select material and specify the finish from Pure+Freeform's library.
