From concept to installation, surfaceLAB is one of the most innovative and knowledgeable architectural fabrication companies in the U.S.
Transform a photograph or image into a 3D photorealistic, illuminated, grayscale panel.
Using full-bleed, high-resolution graphics, we print large format images up to 6’x12’ in size. We can also thermoform the printed surface to create curved and contoured products.
We create an ink transfer plate of your digital graphic and then use heat and pressure to force the image directly into the solid surface substrate.
We use advanced CNC programming and fabrication to bring dimensions to flat surfaces.
We create lighting designs, using curved and patterned surfaces to mold lighting into complex pathways and patterns.
By heating solid surface material and then cooling it over a mold, we can create complex and curved surfaces for furnishings, wall panels, and more.
We use CNC programming to carve the pattern into a solid surface and other materials to add visual interest and detail.

surfaceLAB is a company with a simple mission: to help architects and designers learn more about advanced fabrication techniques and processes. They do this by providing design assistance, technical support through CAD, 3D mock-ups, and also complete fabrication and installation services for these unique, eye-catching architectural features.
surfaceLAB was founded in 2014 by Rick Wing after he recognized that the level of innovation in construction methods had plateaued. He saw an opportunity to breathe new life into the industry by teaching people what’s really possible with materials—which could lead to fresh ideas on how architecture could be improved.
