Product partner - Morph Bricks

This year at Grand Designs Live, Morph® are using their latest eco product Morph Bio, made from Bio composite material for the Sustainable Future Theatre. Biocomposites capture and store carbon in the bioplastic and wood fibres of the material, helping reduce carbon footprints. 
 
The tailored design creates a stunning 6m wide by 2.5m tall backdrop to the Theatre. Using Bio bricks the structure incorporates a flat central wall with integrated signwriting in Off-White. The wall extends out either side in a bespoke staggered pattern of Apple Green and Leaf Green bricks, giving depth and the sense of a curved wall.  
 
Built in just a few hours by one individual installer, we have no need for tools and create no mess or dust! The bricks are delivered in easy to handle cardboard boxes which we reuse in the take down, storing the bricks for the next event. 
 
Plus! Signage for the Sustainable Future Theatre uses our black bricks made from 100% recycled plastic.
