Intro Text (will show in Directory only):

The use of concrete in interiors has been popular for some time now. It’s a material that’s versatile, strong and long-lasting. Predominantly, though, it has been used more often for floors rather than walls.

However, that’s changing as designers and architects look for more striking options to create a visual presence, both in residential settings and to create a point of difference in retail and commercial spaces.

Concreate is about to launch a new offering in wall panels to the New Zealand market, which will be available from August 2018. Designed specifically for use on walls, rather than floors, the panels are highly textural and designed to create a statement.

“They come in two colours, mineral sand and metallic copper,” Concreate’s Mark Wilson says. “The panels are created with a concrete/cement skim as the top layer. More patina is made by way of adding rough marks and an aged finished on the base coat, combined with more random cement finish in the top layer.

“These panels are very textural. They have a pitted texture with trace and rust marks and age spots. The mineral sand panels are reminiscent of natural stone or very old concrete where you are getting that sort of break-through texture coming through.”

The mineral sand panels have a neutral palette, with off-white to grey the predominant tones.

In comparison, the metallic copper panels have a rusty copper colour as the top coat, with a base coat of black through to dark-bronze browns. “The metallic copper panels make a bold statement,” Mark says. “They are ideal for creating a feature wall or a statement in one area. Their almost dull finish is reminiscent of an aged copper.”
