Forms & Surfaces History
Spanning a range of applications not typically associated with a single company, our portfolio of products is unified by a central theme: enhancing life in public—indoors, outdoors, and everywhere in between. You’ll find our products in office buildings, airports, restaurants and hotels, and in universities, healthcare facilities, parks, and city centers.
Products, however, tell only part of our story. What makes Forms+Surfaces truly unique requires a look beyond our product line, to the creative processes that define our company and shape our ability to help our customers transform their designs into installed reality.
A Culture of Innovation. Touching every member of the F+S team, our culture reflects the personal passion of each individual; the connection to customers and understanding their needs; and the ingenuity to experiment and improvise. The desire to innovate drives us daily, and, in step with the world around us, allows us to constantly evolve.
A History of Collaboration. For nearly five decades we’ve embraced opportunities to work with our clients and suppliers to develop real-world design solutions. These collaborations have informed our product lines, yielded expertise on numerous fronts, and equipped us with a sophisticated understanding of the challenges our customers face.
Solution-Based Design. Whether addressing building code requirements, ADA guidelines or environmental issues, we view design as problem solving. Our highly configurable systems and products can be tailored to suit the aesthetic and performance needs of any setting. Interrelated product lines make it easy to carry design and material themes across an installation. And we design our products to be as durable as they are beautiful—specify Forms+Surfaces, and you get quality that will last a life time, and designs that will endure.
Comprehensive Expertise. Multi-faceted projects require an array of talents and capabilities. Our steady investment in high-end manufacturing facilities, state-of-the-art equipment and technologies, leading-edge materials, and the skilled professionals that make up our team yields expertise at all levels of our organization and enables us to respond to new opportunities without missing a beat.
Environmental Stewardship. Aimed at protecting the globe we all call home, environmental responsibility has long been part of our core business ethic. Our products emphasize stainless steel, aluminum, FSC Certified woods, high recycled content and recyclability, and low- and no-VOC finishes. We’ve developed a comprehensive system to provide reliable, auditable environmental impact data to our clients. And our knowledgeable sustainability team is available to work with customers around the world to help them meet stringent sustainability standards.
Global Reach. Key relationships on local and regional levels contribute to our global agility. We have large manufacturing and customer service facilities in the United States and India and an International sales team with offices in Dubai, Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong.
More than just the sum of our product lines, Forms+Surfaces is a truly integrated resource with the passion, expertise and manufacturing prowess to help our clients achieve success. No matter what the size or scope of a job, we’re committed to enhancing life in public spaces and we embrace our role as an innovative, responsive partner that architects and designers around the world can rely on and trust.
