Quartz surface brand Caesarstone has added 5121 Layalite to its growing portfolio of quartz work surfaces. Inspired by the juxtaposition of soft snowfall and the roughness of metamorphic rock, this original surface is said to bring the beauty of a snowy winter landscape indoors.
The company says that white stone surfaces continue to prove popular within kitchen design, as evidenced by the hugely successful launch of its Whitelight Collection in 2021, which demonstrates how designers and homeowners can achieve a desirable look with a durable quartz surface that provides a practical alternative to marble copies. 5121 Layalite continues this trend for white stone surfaces, offering kitchen designers and their clients greater choice when it comes to light, bright kitchen worktops.
5121 Layalite boasts a fresh white foundation contrasted by topographic texture, resulting in a clean look. The design was created by Caesarstone's in-house design team, who look to the natural world to help inspire and inform their award-winning surfaces.
According to Caesarstone, the new surface has been carefully considered to address health & safety regulations, social responsibility, environmentally responsible production, and sustainable production techniques. Highlighted within the company’s recent ESG report, which looks at environmental, social and governance practices to improve Caesarstone’s environmental policy and corporate social responsibility, by 2025, it intends to reduce energy use by 10%; recycle water and reduce its use by approximately 10%; and reduce air pollution levels by 5%.
