“Architects were quick to embrace our timber battens, applying them to internal walls and ceilings in ways we may never have thought of! Our batten system changed our business significantly as commercial interiors became our target market.”

Jeremy Napier, Managing Director

Sculptform

The Sculptform Story

Before we were Sculptform, our Founder, Jeremy Napier, could be found devising new ideas for timber cladding and decking products due to business disruption from China. A year later, in 2005, these ideas formed Woodform Architectural and our machinery, factory and staff shifted into the new venture.

We found our niche, with our concealed fixings being our main point of difference. 

In 2007, we began kiln drying, pre-oiling and end-matching, then expanded our product range to include our timber batten system in 2009. Back then, a spring steel clip was our method of systemising a concealed fixing, and a year later we had a complete range of battens and started pre-fixing these clips to mounting tracks.

Architects were quick to embrace our timber battens, applying them to internal walls and ceilings in ways we may never have thought of! Our batten system changed our business significantly as commercial interiors became our target market.

In 2012, we began producing aluminium products after needing to create a ceiling with a crisp white finish. We became a popular choice for ceilings and developed a ceiling track to clip into a standard ceiling suspension system. This led to supplying wall and ceilings on large commercial projects. 

Next, we began providing high quality finishes with a new production line and in 2015, we bought a wrapping line and learnt the intricate skill of laminating timber look wrapping and wood veneer onto aluminium – an option for Group 1 rated and non-combustible areas. 

In 2017, our online design configurator, Price & Spec was formed and shortly after this in 2018 (after taking two years to develop and patent) we launched our Dovetail Clip to further improve the usability and sophistication of our batten Click-on connection system.

We then welcomed our new name Sculptform to reflect our expanded product range and use of materials beyond timber. Our website was also created which won Gold in the ‘Digital – Corporate’ category of the Melbourne Design Awards 2019.

In 2020 we opened our Melbourne Design Studio, designed by Woods Bagot whose vision won our design competition. The studio allows us to engage with design professionals and host industry professionals at our events. The studio features thousands of curved timber battens, which we now produce through our unique curved timber moulding process.

In 2021, we are proud to produce a range of products from our factory and headquarters in Bendigo located in regional Victoria. We are proudly Australian made and work hard to source Australian materials, which includes 100% of our aluminium.  

From humble beginnings, we now engage worldwide on commercial and high-end residential projects. The future is looking bright, so journey along with us to see what happens next within the world of Sculptform!
