Presently building home with a streamline (contemporary) look. Very minimal. Have transition from tile to hardwood from kitchen to living area. The transition is shaped as a big "S". The original intent was to have the two surface "butt" each other as to create a "transition line". For whatever reason I am not 100% happy with the end result. I have explored, and exhausted, all that I know to find a solution that I will be happy with. At this point the best soultion is to custom mill the same material that we used for the hardwood (3 1/2" plank natural maple) and and create a custom transition, but based on the configuration of the "S" that is long and wide, and further more at one end returns back making a "C" shape, and based on the lenght that the H.wood comes in, there would be, in my opinion, an extreme amount of seams. What I would like to find is a flexible, preferebly vinyl or plastic, transition with a low profile. I have asked locally to those in the trade if they know of a product like that but with no results. We are residential builders, and therefore I thought maybe in the commercial sector there are different product available. All help or links would be appreciated.

what I can tell you is what we use in the field is a vinyl trans. You can get it at your local flooring supply store in many different colors.
None of them that I know of comes in a flat profile, but you can check.

Good luck, and the harwood trans you are discribing sounds complicated and expensive.

One option you might want to look into is inlaying a stip of brass or several stips of brass into this transition space. Brass is both attractive and flexible.
