Aluminium design showcase

Worldwide designers and engineers are specifying aluminium and aluminium profiles in their new projects and products. Due to aluminium’s unique properties, it will always have certain advantages over other materials. Increasingly aluminium is specified as a design choice due to it’s aesthetic appeal.

The projects displayed in this showcase come from all sectors of design and industry, the aim to show designers and engineers unfamiliar to working with aluminium, what it’s capabilities are. To also provide some inspiration for future designers.

The content of this website is not exhaustive and we are always eager to receive submissions of designs, new processes and of course finished product or project examples. We will also offer free technical support and advice concerning the use of aluminium and the extrusion design process. Please contact us if you have anything to contribute or a question to ask.
