Metalmorphism is a glossy design subaesthetic to Skeuomorphism. Metalmorphism itself wasn't recognized and given its own name until early 2023.


This version of skeuomorphism consists of objects and user interfaces made to resemble that of metal, and solely consists of it. The metal gives it a glossy look, and can be seen as attention grabbing. While metalmorphism offers a unique design approach, it is unlikely to dominate the world of modern aesthetics primarily because it may be perceived as unprofessional by some.


Metalmorphism has been used for an unknown period of time, however the name "Metalmorphism" wasn't seen on the internet until early 2023.
