About Img 1

The vastness of the sky…inside

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.

About Img 2

The Sky as a Universal Experience

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.

Telling our story

Our Culture

Transparency
Flat, hive-management
Service
Consensus

Transparency

With the exception of individual HR matters and compensation, all information throughout the company is open and displayed to all Sky Factory staff. Weekly all-company meetings include review of current company financials and performance metrics as well as discussion of all significant short and long-term business issues. There are no secrets.

Flat, hive-management

Sky Factory does not have a hierarchal system of management – no managers or supervisors. Sky Factory is a ‘bottom up’ organization of self-motivated individuals who participate in multiple job-teams and take periodic responsibility as the “facilitator” for one or more functional groups. The goal (recognized as unachievable, though worthwhile) is that everyone should know and be able to do everything. Individuals rotating through different jobs and teams as well as transparency support this goal.

Service

Service is the foundation that underlies our contractual relationship with each other, our customers, the corporation itself and our community (which extends to the world). However, as we extend our experience of service, it has become increasingly common that many find themselves engaging in service spontaneously – without consideration of return.

Consensus

All business decisions are made by a consensus within small teams or by the entire company. Complete transparency, alertness to the full range of the company’s goals and business activities combined with flat management ensures that gaining consensus is highly efficient. Consensus ensures maximum input of group intelligence and results in maximum buy-in as well as insightful decisions.

Solar powered

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).
