We envision a world wherein the pristine beauty of nature is brought inside, where fine art and technology, within a proper architectural context, help to deliver the peace and balance that come from authentic experience of the depths of nature. We are committed to providing practical, affordable ceiling and wall installations that evoke the visceral experience of nature's vastness in a pure and profound way.
Declaraciones de los diseñadores
It is our opinion that Sky Factory's SkyCeilings and related products are not just pretty pictures, nor are they simply design elements. In the deepest sense, the imagery is not even about the sky. Rather, they are illusions of nature designed to deliver a fundamental experience of vastness to occupants within interior built environments.
Las personas de Sky Factory
The people at Sky Factory love nature — how nature looks, operates, creates and maintains itself. We are a diverse group of people hailing from many parts of the U.S. and around the world. We get along extremely well. Getting on the Sky Factory bus requires more than just a ticket, we've had to earn (and, in some cases, make) our seats—a multi-pronged interview process, trial periods, team reviews, and consistently good work with attention to the quality of our products, our service, and our culture.
Culture is to the corporation what DNA/RNA is to the life of living organisms - the internal blueprint and communication system by which a cell and the entire organism is created, maintained and grows. A healthy organism results from functional DNA/RNA and its related systems. Disease results from corrupted DNA/RNA. Similarly, culture is the internal fabric that is both formative and expressive of the behavior of all individuals (cells) and the corporate body.
In keeping with our commitment to a green and sustainable business model, in 2012 Sky Factory installed a 54kw solar array, designed to generate more than 100% of Sky Factory's power needs. At the time, it was the largest private installation in the Hawkeye State (Iowa). For more details about our solar installation, including live and historical power generation figures, are available on our Solar page.
100% Sustainable & Organic Garden
Sky Factory is located in the heartland of America—Iowa. As a tribute to all those educators, co-ops, and farmers growing food in a sustainable manner, Sky Factory operates a 3.5 acre organic farm and garden. Faith Reeves, our resident farmer and soil expert, not only teaches sustainable practices, but also grows a range of assorted veggies that Sky Factory staff enjoy as an added bonus throughout the year.
Made in USA
As a small family-owned company with deep roots in the local economy, all Sky Factory products are American-made. Whether we ship to Europe or Japan, Latin America or Africa, the Middle East or Australia, every single one of our products is designed and manufactured in our office/factory headquarters in Fairfield, Iowa.
