Company: Forsberg Form
Head of Project: Johan Forsberg

There is a demand for the development of thin, high performance concrete constructions. Concrete is the most commonly used construction material in the world. Over the last decade, a new research area has emerged in Europe, namely Textile Concrete. Today, Sweden lacks this expertise. In 2009, the Swedish Cement and Concrete Research Institute (CBI) It is an exciting research including several applications in the construction industry and also in interior design. The Textile Reinforced Concrete for Construction and Art project is  a collaboration with Forsberg Form and the CBI will contribute to the development of this much needed research in Sweden.
