Fractal and Fractool, together a new concept in customizable architectural panels, are based
on an isosceles triangle. Fractal panels use Plyboo RealCore bamboo in dimensions of 24 x 24
x 34 in. and are available in a wide range of colors, including natural, amber, fog, mist, greige,
and noir. Colors can be used in combinations with a variety of surface patterns. Designs are
available in unfinished, or with a natural, oil finish. The Fractool is an online design tool that
produces a photographic image of a wall of Fractal panels, custom configured by the user,
along with a blueprint of how to assemble and install the design. Panels contribute to multiple
LEED credits and come standard with a Class C fire rating, which is upgradable.
