Concrete surface «sharpened sun». The sun wheel can be used to accentuate surfaces radially as an eye-catcher. Exposed wall areas thus become the focal point.

In collaboration with a Swiss artist, Dade Design offers exclusive wall designs to enhance the original building fabric. This combines the centuries-old craftsmanship of stonemasons & sculptors with the modern construction methods of modern times.

Concrete surfaces scuffing, faltering or peaking

Through a combination of processing techniques such as scraping, stocking and pointing, which date back to the Middle Ages, the upper concrete skin is removed in the millimeter range. Pebbles become irregularly visible and further enliven the surface. Some treatments are like a Renaissance fresco. It should be created on the concrete that is dimensionally stable but not yet bonded through. However, the finishing can also be applied on old exposed concrete.

Refine your building fabric with exclusive surfaces

The demand for the representative design of concrete surfaces is constantly growing. This handicraft technique turns wall surfaces into individual works of art. individual works of art. A wide variety of impact patterns can be implemented here.

For Dade Design, the independent sculptor Frank Ullmann has realized several objects. For almost 30 years now, the artist has been working as a stone sculptor, among other things.
