Tensile Membrane specialists MakMax Australia will design and fabricate the Australian Institute of Architects Bar at 2009’s Form and Function exhibition.

Having created textile icons such as the Moet and Chandon interior space and more recently Green Void in Sydney Customs House, MakMax will exhibit the latest in tensile membrane fabrication and design expertise.

MakMax will collaborate again with LAVA for creative design input to develop a space that will exhibit both new and existing tensile membrane technologies.

Renowned for creating fabric structures that are cutting edge, MakMax as part of the International Taiyo group have been responsible for many of Australia’s recognised structures.

Longitude 131 luxury tents, Adelaide Oval Grandstand, O2 Arena (formally Millennium Dome) and more recently Mumbai Airport, Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium and Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium for the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games are all included on MakMax’s reference list. Additionally, MakMax have also invested in research and development to create both innovative and sustainable fabrics.

MakMax is tensile membrane technology. The Australian Institute of Architects Bar is anticipated as being an example of the future of textile architecture.
