Premier Composite Technologies (PCT) is one of the leading global suppliers of lightweight, advanced composite structures for the Architectural and Marine markets, has announced its collaboration with award winning architects, UNStudio, at this year's 100% Design London.

PCT and UNStudio will join forces to create a showpiece created entirely out of advanced composite materials, in a bid to demonstrate to the architectural and design markets, the benefits of working with composites over more conventional structural materials such as steel and concrete.

The display, that will be designed by UNStudio, and engineered, constructed and installed by PCT, will be molded out of a carbon/glass fiber and epoxy resin composite combined with a structural foam core materials that have until recently been known more for their use in aeronautics and building high performance sports cars and racing yachts due to their lightweight and extreme strength properties.

Today, composite materials are being used more widely in the architectural world due to their ability to mould complex 3D forms, allowing architects greater freedom in design.

Hannes Waimer, MD, Premier Composite Technologies Says,: "We are delighted to be working with UNStudio at 100% Design London. The nature and complexity of their designs are perfect for working with advanced composites and we look forward to unveiling the results."
