Design

Whether you need assistance pulling together a visual of your project or full project management, Leerform’s designers and fabricators are here to assist you at every step. We work intimately with our clients to provide estimates, research and development, project management, prototyping, proof of concept, and full design work. We love interesting problems, brainstorming, and finding creative solutions to difficult challenges. No seemingly improbable impasse is impossible and we will always offer respectful attentiveness to your project.

 

Fabrication Design – Galleries, Art Fairs and Tradeshows

Leerform provides fabrication design for your exhibition. With over ten years of exhibition design experience – from museum/gallery shows to art fairs and trade shows – we know how to give you the confidence that when opening night arrives everything will be exactly as you envisioned. We seamlessly work with contractors, architects, and interior designers using architectural drawings to map out your final layout based off of our site visit.

Fabrication

Leerform is a focused studio that’s adaptive to our client’s needs. At our core, we serve museums, galleries, artists, and the greater arts community. For museums, we can employ fully archival materials. We offer a materials list included with estimates so there are no surprises – if it’s not on the list, it’s not in the project.
Our Greenpoint facility has a fully equipped woodworking and metal fabrication shop where we offer services from the precise to the bespoke. We also work with contractors, architects, and designers to make custom cabinetry, furniture, and parchment panels.
