GFRC Rhomba Bench Project How-to Drawings
Fu-Tung conceptualized the Rhomba Bench to meet three key objectives for the user:
- Make the project approachable to build, utilizing one form to make two concrete pieces while creating a distinctive, interlocking design;
- Create a functional piece of furniture that balances the polished surface of concrete and the warm look and feel of wood;
- Be a semi-permanent, lightweight installation, allowing the user to move the bench at any time to any location including elevated environments.
Because this version of the RHOMBA Bench is made with Surecrete GFRC (also available is RHOMBA Bench Wetcast), it is lightweight at only 175 lbs making it ideal for any location including urban, rooftop environments where weight is a structural concern. With the RHOMBA Bench design and drawings, you can make your bench in any color with any species of wood you desire and you can pair it with a Quadra Fire Cube, also a Fu-Tung Cheng Signature Design, to create a focal point for your outdoor living space.
The RHOMBA Bench How-to Project Drawings include 12 pages of clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions detailing form construction, techniques for hand-packing D-FRC, and tips on de-molding, finishing, and installing. Drawings also include a full list of materials and supplies required to complete the project.
