Where did the idea for FuseForm originally come from?
Joe Vernachio (JV): We admire good design. We feel the best contemporary designs today involve the integration of many materials. Some of our favorite designs have many integrated components that give the products a uni-body look and feel. The adoration we have for those products led us to seek out a way of doing that in our products.
When did the concept first come to mind?
JV: We first started on this path many years ago when we started to really study what weaving machines were capable of. Seeing machines from many different industries, besides the typical apparel textile manufactures, really got us excited.
