fibreC is high-strength, thin flexible and shapeable and can be used in special forms flat as well as rounded. The inimitable formability of the whole system combined with the unrivalled daintiness provides exceptional possibilities for application. Designing rough edges as well as roundings and curves in one material flow without adhesives but featuring high durability breaks the limits for traditional architecture and interior design. Various visual effects can be achieved by using covered or uncovered fixing solutions. Another dimension for playing with the endless variety marks our possibilities for colour selection and defining of different surface structures. The colour palette ranges from any greyscale tone to natural tones such as terra, green or brown. Different structures, matt polished or sandblasted emphasises the modern face of glass fibre concrete. The characteristics are unfolded especially when it comes to interior design.
