Surface manufacturer Caesarstone has launched the Metropolitan Collection in the UK. The new collection welcomes five new products, which join the four already launched surfaces. Interior designers, members of the press and friends of the brand gathered last night at rough and rustic Barge House, on London’s Southbank, to celebrate the launch.
The latest products include:
Manufacturing on two continents, Caesarstone products are sold in more than 50 countries around the world. Now seen to be leading the industrial trend, Caesarstone’s s latest collection includes rough and unpolished, bold surfaces that form part of the revival of modernism, a rethinking of brutalism and the rekindling of industrial architecture.
The collection launches as a response to the robust construction finishes that have become a popular choice among consumers. This trend, and the collection itself, has been inspired by factories and lofts and has been translated for residential and commercial interiors. Each energetically styled surface in the collection has been designed to reflect the authentic textures of raw manufacturing, such as oxidized steel, poured plaster and raw concrete. Via innovative cutting-edge technology, weathered patinas have been achieved in quartz for the very first time – a breakthrough that can be felt as well as seen.
“Caesarstone continues to set surface design trends that others can only follow,” said Jon Stanley, Caesarstone’s UK Vice President of Marketing. “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.
“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. Many of our leading partners that already have display materials in their showrooms are seeing significant interest.”
Inspired by the intriguing patinas of casting and oxidising, combining the authentic features of rust and concrete. Its beauty reflects the geological decay of stone, weathered by time and nature. Its 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
Subtle. Sophisticated. 4011 Cloudburst Concrete with its white on white, tonal cloud like patina 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) providing wide design flexibility, from industrial loft to Scandinavian through to minimal contemporary aesthetic.
4044 Airy Concrete
The light grey base illustrates the richness that minimalism can achieve: 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 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.
Caesarstone’s Metropolitan Collection has been designed to reflect the authentic patinas of industrial materials. The variations in appearance capture real depth and movement, revealing different qualities that make each slab unique
In addition to the Metropolitan Collection, two further products have also been added to Caesarstone’s UK range; 6011 Intense White and 4643 Flannel Grey. Both are priced in Caesarstone’s Premium Group 2 category.
4643 Flannel Grey
Grey has become a versatile neutral in the home-from-home environment. It works in contrast to complementary colours or can calm the space in monochromes, making any of its shades a reliable choice for the contemporary interior.
6011 Intense White
6011 Intense Whites brings light into the kitchen. Its evenly distributed glass flakes reflect the gentle granular nature of stone, while its truly white colour illuminates the surface and adds sophistication.
