Only for use as temporary structures, Lycra provides exceptional elasticity, is extremely light weight, and provides a multitude of colours for any design taste. Suited primarily to interior design, the fabric is applied with a fire retardant layer prior to manufacture. Due to the inherent stretch of the constructed fabric, creep of the fabric is usually minimised by the addition of supporting structural elements such as cables, webbing or edge elements.
With the added advantage of reduced wind loads, reduced degradation due to external weather conditions and reduced structural support requirement, internal textile architecture is an open book for designers. Create fabric sculptures and organic shapes with different textures and looks without detracting from the practical aspect that would inhibit external design.
