Big Elements, Big Textiles

Alongside other things… we are currently moving forward on one of our R&D projects in Tactility Lab

We’ve been working with Craftstone over the last few weeks. They are a local precast manufacturer who make high quality, well finished products using a wide selection of natural sands and aggregates.

We’ve been testing out our technology with them to see how it scales up and fits within their processes and to see whether such large scale elements tie in with TF’s emerging thoughts on thermal mass.

These are photos of the large panels just out of the mold – so there are still a bit ‘green’ – ie they need a few more days to cure and dry out fully.

This work is funded by Creative Industries Innovation Fund and TF

pat-a-cake samples for New York

We have been spending the last few days making itsey/bitsey samples (100x100mm) for Material Connexion in New York. Initially this was NOT good -we are used to BIG panels and working with concrete at this scale is… well…. not ‘natural’…. BUT with saying that …how they have turned out is nice to handle and in combination they are great fun! We are almost tempted not to share them with all those lucky NewYorkers.

(all samples shown are Velvet Concrete)
