Reflecting the industrial trend with its Metropolitan Collection, Caesarstone has added five colours to the range: Excava, Cloudburst Concrete (shown), Airy Concrete, Topus Concrete and Frozen Terra.
In addition, it has introduced two decors separate from the Metropolitan Collection, Flannel Grey and Intense White.
Rough and unpolished, each surface in the Collection has been designed to reflect the authentic textures of raw manufacturing, such as oxidised steel, poured plaster and raw concrete.
Using technology exclusive to Caesarstone, weathered patinas have been achieved in quartz for the very first time, visually and texturally.
Caesarstone UK VP Marketing, Jon Stanley, commented: “Caesarstone continues to set surface design trends that others can only follow.
“Last year’s reveal of 4033 Rugged Concrete was a significant hit with both commercial and residential designers.
“Numerous projects and a number of awards followed but what the launch really did was set the tone for the Metropolitan Collection that we are unveiling now.
“The brands’ deserved reputation for product design innovation continues without challenge.”
He continued, “Caesarstone works with the world’s leading trend forecasters and the in-house design team are acutely aware of what’s becoming in vogue and when.
“The Metropolitan Collection, as well as comprising perhaps the most visually arresting surface designs available on the market today, is highly commercial and keenly priced.
“Many of our leading partners that already have display materials in their showrooms are seeing significant interest.”
Read on below for more detailed descriptions of each of the five new colours in the Metropolitan Collection:
Inspired by the intriguing patinas of casting and oxidising, combining the authentic features of rust and concrete. It reflects the geological decay of stone, weathered by time and nature. It’s excavated look is appreciated for its texture and depth, ranging from different layers of earth shades to copper and dark brown. Its rough concrete finish is subtly coarse to the touch, yet cleaning remains as effortless as with all Caesarstone surfaces.
4011 Cloudburst Concrete
With its white on white, tonal cloud-like patina, Cloudburst Concrete delivers a truly unique look. With its “Rough” low reflective matt surface, the design works alongside light and dark timbers, stainless steel, concrete surfaces (including 4033 Rugged Concrete). This provides wide design flexibility, from industrial loft to Scandinavian through to minimal contemporary aesthetic.
4044 Airy Concrete
The light grey base is an authentic rough concrete finish that has been refined for the home. Its airy visual textures express depth across the worktop, enriched by dark grey and white areas, providing the true feel of concrete while maintaining the easy care synonymous with all Caesarstone products.
4023 Topus Concrete
Inspired by topological strata – fossilized textures built up over time in veiled layers – and it combines the mineral formations found in nature with the rugged patinas of industrial materials, giving this surface movement, opacity, and depth. With a gentle hint of warm pink, its blush undertone echoes the pastels that are impacting the interiors market today.
4601 Frozen Terra
Fresh, modern, industrial-inspired concrete / terrazzo fusion, with sparsely distributed irregular translucent aggregate and fine black basalt. Further enhancing the overall appearance of Frozen Terra is the “Concrete” matt finish which brings an authentic industrial patina, look and feel to the surface and, like all Caesarstone surfaces, never requires sealing.
