A designer can draw upon a multitude of programmable features of the System, allowing for a wide range of influences including environmental site specific considerations, which become colours on the Artist's palette.


Ombrae is uniquely programmable; capable of adapting, and even affecting environmental factors in its surroundings. These elements include heat displacement, airflow guidance, sound attenuation, and solar control. This level of sophistication will grow increasingly prevalent as energy efficiency controls becomes more essential.


Ombrae is a medium that allows the artist, designer, or other creatives to work in multiple disciplines and think in multiple dimensions. Ombrae is a Sculptural System that creates three-dimensional images and designs in planar surfaces. This unique ability allows the concepts and practices of art to be concretely realized in virtually any creative application. With Ombrae, the Artist has a wide range of options for creating their work on scales and in materials that have never been achievable before.
