3-form / Alternatives for frosted acrylics...

Posted by California Dreaming at February 08. 2008

I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for products that are similar to 3-form, but not quite as expensive. I love the look of 3-form, especially their products that use natural materials like bamboo and grass in the mixes. But at $1300 for a 4'x8' sheet - it's pricey. Just wondering if anyone knows of any similar suppliers, either with plain frosted pieces or with designs in them like 3-form. Thinking of using it for a door panel and room divider...Thanks!

CD,

We finished out our design office/studio(seems like the typical thing to do if your designer to save money). Anyway, we used frosted/textured acrylic plastic (.125") Full sheet runs about $150 bucks certainly not like 3form but a alternative. If you create a sturdy frame(i.e. steel)and possible some cross members you might be able to keep it flat and consistant.

We mounted it to shelving system and lockers as dividers, it gives privacy and offers good light.

Hope this helps...Chris

Twin-wall polycarbonate panels (like they use for greenhouses) are cool looking and aren't as expensive...

I am also looking at finding a replace to 3-Form or Lumicor panels for interior architectural panels.  So far it basically looks like the only nice looking options are frosted tempered glass or Acrylite acrylic panels.  THe Acrylite panels are available in some really cool colors and textures and seem to be only around $400 a sheet for 3/8" thick sheets.  If you want, check them out at: http://www.cyro.com/methacrylates/us/products/sheet_products/applicationsmarkets/furnitureaccessories/
