Modular Fabrication - FRP Exhibition Stand 100% Design London 2011

Premier Composite Technologies (PCT) and UNStudio, collaborated at 100% Design London to celebrate the creation of spatial possibilities with advanced composite materials.

UNStudio’s design for the PCT stand at 100% Design London, named “Modular Fabrication”, presents a construction based on the repetition of a single geometric module. Moulded from glass fibre and epoxy resin composite combined with a structural foam core, the repeated assembled units capitalise on the lightweight and extreme strength properties of the composite materials and create the potential for highly customised architectural configurations.

Ben van Berkel, Founder of UNStudio: “With Modular Fabrication we celebrate both the inherent qualities of composite materials and the technological expertise in the manufacturing of these. The installation celebrates the spatial possibilities created by the material and the ways that this can be appropriated in architecture.”

Covering an area of 5 by 10 meters, UNStudio’s installation develops like a magnified molecular structure, engaging the visitor whilst simultaneously informing about the technological capabilities of Premier Composite Technologies and highlighting the potential for the use of composite materials in architecture.
