Vicente Wolf Concrete Bathroom Design
Recently, Vicente Wolf was kind enough to respond to one of our questions we sent to his Ask Vicente series on his blog.
We are very big admirers of Mr. Wolf. We love concrete as a medium, but it is great to get designers feedback, and really, especially his.
Ask Vicente: What’s Your Take on Concrete?
My husband and I are both big fans of your work. We own a small concrete company. We do counter tops, furniture, tiles, sinks, and planters etc. I was wondering what your take on concrete is? Do you think that it is a passing fad or do you think it has a future in the design world as a material you or other designers would like to use? We love the clients and designers who we have worked with in the past, because they are usually undertaking interesting projects, but what do you think about the big picture? Thanks in advance for your time and advice.
Since the Roman times, concrete has been used so I don’t think it’s going out any time soon. I use it everywhere from coffee tabletops, kitchen and bathroom counters, and even bathtubs. I think concrete is a material that really works and the added advantage is that you can stain it in many different colors, making it very functional. As for the future, I think the more that it is integrated in fewer-strictly modern spaces, the more popular and generally accepted it will become as a great design tool.
