5a. Shape & Form

Shape + Form

Acrylic shape and form

Moulded, machined and sculpted form effects.

The shapes and forms of our acrylic designs

Here at Midton, we can create complex, multifaceted, organic, flowing forms. These unique objects go on to fulfil some truly unique applications, spread across our range of acrylic embedment, recognitions, and branding services.

Acrylic can be far more than a simple cuboid or sheet assembly.

The optical properties of acrylic

The outstanding optical properties of acrylic (PMMA) really come into their own when you artisticly play with the form.

Refraction and Reflection combine to create mesmerising visual effects you can hold or observe from afar.

Experimentation and iteration here at Midton

We combine our history in manual making methods with bleeding-edge experimentation and iteration.

Machining and moulding from organic CAD designs with unique split methods has become one of the main ways we create the incredible acrylic objects our clients ask of us.

The endless forms and effects when working with acrylic

Through collaborations with clients, we have consistently challenged the limits of what we thought was possible. So much of this, we think, has come from our drive to innovate, but it is also due to the unique properties of acrylic. Take a look at our case studies if you’d like to get a taste of what we can do.

Complexity at variable volumes, combining form with embedment, physical parementers outside our capabilites. We have done it all.
