SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Smith & Fong Co., makers of Plyboo bamboo architectural panels and flooring products, announced the launch of Fractal and Fractool, a new concept in customizable architectural panels that utilizes the isosceles triangle.

“Fractal panels, when combined with the Fractool, comprise one of the most revolutionary new product concepts we have introduced,” Smith & Fong president Angus Stocks said. “The client now has full control over the design of a wall installation and all of this can be done online, on the client’s time.”

The Fractool is a proprietary online design tool that is on the Plyboo website. It produces a photographic image of a wall of Fractal panels, custom configured by the user, along with a blueprint of how to assemble and install it, and a price that includes delivery.

Fractal panels are fabricated using Plyboo RealCore bamboo in dimensions of 24”x24”x34” (610mm x 610mm x 864mm). Available in many colors including natural, amber, fog, mist, greige and noir, these colors can also be used in combinations with a wide range of surface patterns. Designs are offered unfinished, or with a natural, oil finish.

Produced in the United States from imported and domestic components, Fractal panels can contribute to multiple USGBC LEED credits including Certified Wood and Low-Emitting Materials. See
