Foam Technologies manufactures high density Polystyrene Void-Formers creating a unique Architectural feature in concrete construction.   Semi-circular organic shapes were cut at 25 mm thickness from high density Polystyrene foam using special CNC cutting equipment to replicate the curved shapes.

Each shape was carefully positioned in the mould creating the opposite of a relief sculpture, where the form is cut into background of the panel rather than rising from it.  Once the casting process was completed the sacrificial foam form-liners were removed, revelling a smooth circular shape.  When painted the white circular shapes offer an interesting contrast with an abstract feel that brings life into the concrete panels.

The concrete panels were cast by Austral Precast based in Maddington.
