REFINED

METAL FABRICATION

As award-winning designers and builders of architectural metals, we often view our craft as modern day alchemy – turning base metals into gold. We create timeless, artistic pieces from steel, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, bronze, zinc and iron, bringing your design vision to life.

STEEL FRAME

GLASS DOORS

& PARTITIONS

Every interior deserves a standout design element – one that makes the neighbors jealous, entices someone to linger longer in the lobby, or walk through a door that brings them somewhere unexpected. Our steel & glass doors and partitions are designed, engineered and fabricated to elevate any space, adding an element of luxury and sophistication. Handmade and custom-built in Chicago to based on your project specifications.
