Iwan Pol's Happy Concrete

23 Aug 2019
By Anna Marks

Iwan Pol creates 'Happy Concrete' by transforming the material's traditional Brutalist aesthetic into a smooth curvaceous mateiral. 


Cold, grey, raw and rigid — concrete may be one of the most widely used human-made materials but its implementation often falls short of being inspirational. Dutch designer Iwan Pol creates what he calls ‘Happy Concrete’ by transforming the material’s Brutalist aesthetic into a soft, smooth and curvaceous material. 


Pol’s material can be used as a tactile skin for the exterior of buildings or as an addition to floors and interior walls for kitchens, bathrooms, floors and walls. Most of his products are handmade so they can adjust easily to fit client’s needs.
