Ombrae is a fully customizable 3D-surfacing technology. To support our clients in implementing an Ombrae solution for their needs, Ombrae Studios' in-house design team works collaboratively with project stakeholders in concert with our manufacturing network to deliver unique, one-of-a-kind products.
Our approach to any Ombrae project, from architecture to product design, follows four well-defined stages. This methodical approach to the creative development process is flexible, allowing meaningful collaboration and ideation, yet stays rigid enough to deliver timely and satisfying end results.
At the outset of every project, we seek to discover the key factors about the project in relation to context, scale, application, site considerations, client's design intent, and unique opportunities. In turn, Ombrae Studios helps our clients truly discover Ombrae: educating project stakeholders on the opportunities and characteristics of the Ombrae Imaging Technology, and offering initial feedback based on our breadth of experience.
Client Product Education
Material Research (as required)
Building upon the key factors and insights uncovered in the Discovery Phase, Ombrae Studios works closely with the project’s design team and our manufacturing partners to define a proposal based on the client’s values and aspirations. This initial proposal showcases a conceptual vision for the project with Ombrae integrated: realized through sketches, photo composites, proposed input artwork, and virtual 3D models.
Preliminary Site / Application Analysis
Draft Design Iterations
Colour / Material Finish Consultation
Having gained buy-in from the project stakeholder team to specify Ombrae on the project, our team progresses the design direction with increasingly refined iterations, taking into account all input layers that drive Ombrae’s end result: grayscale artwork, environmental factors, treatment area, view optimization, and colour material finish.
Artwork Refinement + Sign-off
View Optimization Finalization
Coverage Area Finalization
Panel / Part Drawing Finalization (Manufacturing Partner)
Upon final design sign-off from the client, Ombrae Studios moves forward to the encoding phase, which involves creating drawings for tooling and product manufacturing. We have spent years building a well-established global network of industry-leading manufacturing partners for both architectural and product design applications, who see the project through fabrication, finishing, shipping, and installation.
