Wetstyle Wins Again

Over the last several years, Montreal-based sink and bath manufacturer Wetstyle has been racking up awards for its cutting edge and distinctive designs. Now, its innovative material—the stuff its sinks, tubs, counters and showers are actually made out of—has just won the prestigious Green GOOD DESIGN Award from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design.

Called WETMAR BiO, the proprietary eco-friendly material is made from a mixture of natural ingredients like mineral stone, soy and vegetable extracts, rather than the harsh, chemical-laden resins. The specialized composite was put in to company-wide use in 2013, so every design (be it a long-standing favorite or a brand new collection) is created with the material. Aside from being a healthier alternative, the surface is slip resistant (a great safety feature), non-porous (staining isn’t an issue), and more durable than acrylic (sturdy is good). The material’s density also aids with heat retention and because of its thickness, buffing easily removes scratches. Though Wetstyle’s market is largely residential, the attributes above have made it a popular choice for the hospitality and spa industries—you’ll find them at places like the Ritz-Carlton in Montréal, the Fogo Island Inn in Fogo Island, Newfoundland, the Miraval Villas in Tucsun, and even Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas. All of the lightweight designs are hand-polished and available through our showrooms in either a gloss or matte finish.

Aside from the award-winning sink and bath designs, Wetstyle also produced sustainable bathroom furniture using rift-cut oak veneer, walnut veneer and stainless steel, as well as comfort items like back and neck rests, and this stylish little bench that could be put to use well beyond the bathroom.
