As an individual element, 2D Forms can be customized using colored fabrics, projection mapping, lighting systems, or by incorporating dye-sublimation printing. 2D Forms also make perfect components for a larger stage set design – allowing for step-and-repeat designs, a combination of shapes and sizes, or by pairing it with other stage elements such as Borderless Projection Screens, Event Arches, and Full Moons.
With such a diverse array of event design options, 2D forms are ideal solutions for everything from private events and corporate stage designs to custom trade show booths and live brand activations.
Each of the custom fabricated shapes uses a thick-walled 2” aluminum frame, that is covered in a pillowcase-style stretch fabric skin; creating a design that is wrinkle-free, easy to set up, and securely mounted.

IFR Stretch Fabric
We manufacture our 2D Forms with premium stretch fabric. This stretchy fabric, or tension fabric as it is also referred to, is inherently flame retardant (IFR) and is engineered for durability, safety, and high-performance stretch. Our fabric is equipped with a quick zipper installation feature, which easily guides the fabric into the correct place. Our fabric is 90% polyester and 10% spandex which makes the application of this fabric easy. We use our specially-calculated stretch ratios to ensure your 2D Form skin is magnificently wrinkle-free when installed. The end result is a perfectly upright frame with a flawless fabric skin.
Frames, Fabrication, and Sizing
The event industry was long overdue for an upgrade when it comes to frame construction. Many of the basic frames consist of button-stop joints that yield a product that sways and is typically used once before retiring to the landfill. We strive to reduce unnecessary waste, so we’ve revolutionized the run-of-the-mill frame to create a custom-fabricated, high-quality frame that is stout in its construction and can stand the test of time. Rather than throwing this frame into the landfill, it can be reskinned and re-used without fail.
Our frames are made with robust 2” anodized aluminum tube with a 1/8” thick aluminum wall. Due to the thick walls and girthy frame, your 2D Form will remain true to form. Rather than using button-stop joints, our frames bolt together using a flush mount machine grade threaded insert. The bolts are screwed into the frame, fitting flush against the frame, and firmly securing each piece in place. For additional support, set screws are fabricated to the foot pins of 2D Forms taller than 12’ or with square footage over 200 ft. To tighten the set screw, use the hex key supplied with your order.
And with every 2D Form order, appropriately sized baseplates are also included.
