Stainless Steel

Sleek, hardwearing and corrosion-resistant

Stainless steel combines superbly with other metals to display the uniqueness of your design concept and create ambiance and character.

Stainless steel is one of the most popular materials used in metal fabrication, particularly for exteriors. With its sleek and stylish good looks, it's also hardwearing and resists corrosion. Stainless steel combines superbly with other metals to display the uniqueness of your design concept and create ambiance and character. Because it's rust-resistant, stainless steel metal fabrication is particularly suitable for architectural and design features in both indoor and outdoor applications. Formanova creates top-quality custom-made stainless steel fabrications for both small and large design projects.


Custom metalwork & finishing tailored to the needs of your project


Through an in-depth discussion, we determine the exact specifications of the project and understand the client’s needs and use-case, allowing us to provide a functional solution that considers and reflects the original design intent.

Drafting & Prototyping

Working from the architectural drawings or conceptual renders, we use shop drawings & workshops to make drafts that reflect the brief and meet compliance. We then create prototypes or samples to be reviewed by the builder, designer, or client, exploring every option to meet both budget and design intent.

Fabrication & Finishing

Working out of our local Cheltenham factory and with over 30 years of industry know-how, Formanova uses specialised equipment, materials and in-house techniques to manufacture award-winning metalwork for our amazing clients, whilst at the same time being able to create one-of-kind custom finishes for clients and designers who are looking for that unique touch.

Quality Control

Not every item that is fabricated makes it into the end product. Finishing isn’t an exact science, and we have extremely high standards to maintain a consistent level of quality across every touchpoint that we create for a project — whether it’s for a nationwide retail fit out or residential interior.


All Formanova products are designed to be as convenient as flat-pack furniture, meaning our clients’ trades can easily install them on site without needing contact or call-outs from us. This allows our clients to maintain timelines and budgets across the rest of their project. Once the deliverables are handed over, it’s onto the next brief.


Dome Kooyongkoot

Featured in Est Living’s milestone 40th Issue, this was our first project with the teams at Dome Building and BE Architecture. Our scope included a 4 metre rangehood canopy in brushed stainless steel.


Golden Goose, Golden Staircase, Collins St

Golden Goose came to us with an ultra-unique request for their Melbourne flagship in the city's premier shopping district, the ‘Paris End’ of Collins Street — a golden staircase.



Karen Martini’s restaurant HERO ACMI had recently undergone an internal fit-out when the Covid-19 pandemic swept in and necessitated an outdoor dining area to safely accommodate diners.


Lights In The Attic

Hawthorn East café & coffee roaster Lights In The Attic came to us from the creative team at Architect’s EAT with a very unusual design for their front-of-house fit-out.
