Decorative Metal Installation Art

What Are Artistic Installations?

If you can dream it, we can do it! Artistic Installations are tough to define, but that’s part of the beauty. We have built giant cubes, blown up maps, suspended panels, and interpreted original artwork into metal. Let’s work together to bring your creative ideas to fruition. The gallery below is a great place to start for some inspiration.

The attention to detail and craftsmanship is outstanding

Annie worked with us on design choices and material. We decided on a 3/8 inch beveled, oil-rubbed bronze—“From Sphere to Eternity” for a floor grate. Annie gave us status updates as the work progressed, including getting best pricing on the raw bronze material. It arrived very carefully packaged. What a beautiful piece! The fit is perfect. The attention to detail and craftsmanship is outstanding. It already has a patina. It looks as if it were polished by hand (maybe it was). There is not a single flaw—this is a heavy, substantial piece of art that you can even walk on! It blends in perfectly with our Craftsman/English Tudor-style home.

The devil is in the details and Modern Metal is wickedly perfect in theirs

Working with Annie and her team is an absolute dream! Not only is the product over the top beautiful, but every little detail is thought of. From the packaging you receive your product in, to the “on brand” note cards it comes with. As an interior designer, I am very much looking forward to continuing to work with Modern Metal on many future projects. The devil is in the details and Modern Metal is wickedly perfect in theirs.

Artistic installation are one-of-a-kind. Materials and thickness vary as well as environments and applications. Depending on the installation method desired, countersunk screw holes can be provided which allow for a flush front (meaning that there are no screw heads sticking up). Hover over the nodes in the spec sheet example to the right for some additional info on each element. We would love to bring your design vision to life.

Key Features:

  • Select from 23 Signature patterns or Completely Custom
  • 10 Standard Colors or thousands of powder coat possibilities
  • Steel, Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Brass, Bronze, etc
  • Matching single slot flat head screws (if desired)

Solid Border
The solid border surrounds the patterned area, usually on all 4 sides. The dimensions of this element can vary, but it needs to be wide enough to:

    - Account for concealing the duct within the wall, floor, or ceiling,
    - Offer stability for the welded flange on the back side, and
    - Allow for those countersunk screw holes to securely hold the screws in place.

Patterned Area
No more technical talk! The patterned area is where the magic happens and where the artistic vision comes to life!

Whether it's a Modern Metal signature pattern or a custom motif, we can't wait to let the metal do the talking... After the the spec sheets have been signed, of course!


Modern Metal offers a broad array of Signature patterns. From the smooth curves of Sinuosity and Simple Bend to the geometric corners of Square Squared and Rattan Remix. We are excited to share our collection with you.
