A Carbon Fibre Surfboard with a Difference

Earlier in the Summer, a group of AECOM designers were asked to design and fabricate a custom surfboard for auction and display at the annual A+D Architecture and Design Museum Celebrate Gala and this is what they came up with.


As you can see from the video the sculpture was created by wrapping a standard board with 10 million liner feet (hence the name) of carbon fibre using a custom-made filament winding machine.

The finished board when hung on the wall will constantly change appearance in relation to the day’s natural light shifting from a flat, two-dimension drawing to a thick mass that casts shadows onto any nearby surface.
