In response to the growing trend for darker kitchens and bathrooms, engineered quartz surfaces manufacturer Caesarstone has revealed four new colours that it is adding to existing collections. Black Tempal and Oxidian are joining the Metropolitan Collection, Empira Black is being added to the Supernatural Collection, and Piatto Black is now part of the Classico Collection. The quartet has been several years in development and is inspired by the desert and the great outdoors as the company's design team went travelling in search of ideas.
"We look for inspiration everywhere and in order to design a series of products that truly captured the trend for dark interiors and kitchens, we turned out attention to the outside world, to the desert landscapes where natural stones are scorched by day and frozen by night, weathered by this endless cycle to produce the most wonderful patinas and textures," explained Mor Krisher, Caesarstone's global head of design. "There is an organic quality to Caesarstone products, and this is just as important with dark colours as it is with our marble and granite styled surfaces."
Caesarstone UK MD Amir Reske added: "The Caesarstone portfolio continues to go from strength to strength and having first previewed the new designs to key trade partners earlier this year, we are delighted to officially bring them to market. It is a testament to our unique design process and our incredible R&D team that we have managed to achieve this stunning collection, and superbly demonstrates how we, as a brand, continuously monitor the latest design trends to shape and inform our newest ranges."
