Surface Mode: Transparency

Matching playful design with solid aluminum panels to create a functional multi-purpose product for interior spaces.

Chemetal at it’s most colorful.

Introducing Transparency, colorful new laser cut designs on thicker aluminum panels. Featuring 9 designs in 8 new colors, plus a custom frame system, Transparency is the latest in Chemetal’s Surface Mode collection. Biomorphic, mid-century, futuristic and classic patterns abound, and so do myriad colorways, but that’s just a jumping off point. Our team can work with designers to craft custom patterns and match RAL or Pantone colors.
