Realising large free-form facades and structures

Curve Works enables architects, interior designers and artists to realise free-form facades and other organic structures affordably.

Plastics – fibre reinforced composites – solid surfaces. Challenge us with the requirements of your design.

Our special automated adaptive mould and dedicated manufacturing facility enables us to meet complex design requirements affordably. The adaptive mould configures itself directly from a 3D-CAD file. This means we can manufacture a complete set of unique panels from one single mould.

No more:

  • manufacturing unique tooling for every panel
  • concessions in the design because of excessive costs.

The result is significant manufacturing cost reduction.

free-form is possible

facades

We have extensive manufacturing knowledge to produce high quality singly and doubly curved panels, which form the basis of free-form facades.

interiors

Large internal constructions such as curved wall or ceiling panels and stairs are perfectly suitable for our adaptive mould technology.

installations

Create large installations - functional, interactive or otherwise. With composite materials, anything is possible.

example project

Häring & Co AG of Switzerland make very large timber domes – up to 200m free span – for bulk storage. Looking for a lightweight and affordable solution for urban domes, they approached Curve Works.

Using their timber frame technology coupled with our expertise in composite materials, we have developed a simple solution based on interlocking doubly curved panels. These panels cover the entire timberframe construction that is scalable no matter the diameter of the dome.

Curved composite panels made possible through our adaptive mould technology.
