Artforms (Artex) is the hardscapes industry’s first completely finished modular concrete panel system. Artforms offers clean lines, smooth texture and an aesthetic that is unmatched in the outdoor living category, offering a modern yet timeless look at a reasonable price. The innovative system allows the pre-formed concrete panels to be configured and affixed with simple, stainless steel hardware that is adjustable, allowing for personalized configurations.

The large format, high-strength concrete panels make it suitable for all sizes of outdoor living projects with efficient installation and minimal waste. Artforms is easily added to existing projects and causes minimal disruption to the property owner from its ease in installation, and is suitable for rooftop applications due to its configuration.

This product is made of high-quality concrete, installs horizontally or vertically, and is versatile in nature with a 3-inch modularity. Artforms can be used for benches, barbecues, counters, fireplaces, planters and privacy walls, amongst other projects, and can create a custom cohesiveness of a space with its ability to be cut to an end user’s desired size.
