Testing a product is a learning process. Embarking upon these familiar signs and sculptures we wanted to test different concrete mixtures.
It may take several days for the concrete to dry. It depends on its composition and drying conditions. Uncured concrete is difficult to handle directly, therefore different composites are often used to achieve the desired effect. It usually needs some kind of form or structure to control the shape. This leads to three completely different fabrication methods: casting into a form (and later removing the form), applying to a surface (our concrete boards) or carving a solid block.
Prototyping has given us the power to find solutions to any given problem. We believe that a product – in this case concrete – based on a prototype is a product based on practice and experience. Testing materials is essential in proving the product meets our requirements.
