Luminous Resin Panels from 3Form

For a renovation project at American Flatbread in Middlebury, we used 3Form panels with LED lights on the soffit over the bar, the lights suspended over the bar area and the host station.


The soffit mimics steel framework located nearby and features backlit 3Form light diffusing panels.

In the factory, located in Salt Lake City, UT, the manufacturer sandwiches layers of materials to achieve the desired colors and luminosity. When delivered, 3Form panels are rigid like Plexiglas and can be dimensioned with a table saw or CNC machine.
