Ombrae Optical Tiling System
Surface Inc is proud to introduce Ombrae™ a patented, computer-based image processing system which brings the ancient technique of Bas Relief sculpture out of the past and into the forefront of surface design technology. Invented and developed by the Canadian artist Roderick Quin, the process is not photographic transfer or a traditional holographic process, but is made from 3D pixels or optical tiles™. At the present time the system is only available in aluminium or Cor-Ten steel panel systems commercially.; however other materials such as glass, concrete, rubber, resin, etc are due to follow shortly.
