Circa was born as team project to create new use and horizons for two old materials.
Fabric and concrete.
And why not use them to create a new forniture line for a living?

Undestand what is the best kind of Fabric and what concrete use what pretty hard but at the end we used a 50% wool fabric and white concrete.

Enjoy the pics of making and  the final results.
And don't be shy to ask!
<p>I don't know what Anto used, but It does look a bit like a balance ball from the gym. I would like to try this with a resin Adirondack chair, maybe with some rebar for added support. </p>
The sphere that you used that you covered with the cloth. What is that? This post has given me a lot of inspiration for sculpture.
<p>How do you saturate the cloth in the concrete? Do you just dip it in the concrete then put it over a form?</p>
<p>yes. dip it in very diluted concrete.<br>After we used blocks and other stuff we found to form the shapes</p>
I am rather curious as to the breaking point of this material. Especially the &quot;C&quot; shaped table how much weight could that hold before the brittle concrete gives way and allows the fabric to flop?
Hi! <br>I've never check the breaking point of the &quot;composite&quot; material. <br>The C shaped table had 2 steel structure as you can look on the first pics but when finished it was too much flexible to hold an high weight. <br>if you made a top 30cmx30cm of 3 fabric layer with a good quantity of concrete i think it should hold 20/30kg without breaking. <br>
