Quartz surfacing supplier Caesarstone has opened a studio in Manchester, on the same site as its recently-opened Distribution Centre in Trafford Park.
Over 120 people attended the launch party of the space, which has been designed to showcase the brand’s products as well as provide inspiration for trade partners and consumers.
Visitors can see and feel large format quartz surfaces with a space created to allow designers, architects and consumers to view the entire collection and talk through their requirements with an expert.
The Manchester space mirrors the Caesarstone London Studio that opened at the brand’s headquarters in May 2018.
