With the release of the first of its new colours for 2019, Caesarstone has highlighted the huge shift in kitchen aesthetics. Once a sleek, shiny, almost sterile environment, Australian kitchen renovations now embrace the raw beauty of the industrial landscape and the organic imperfections of nature. Concrete, once confined to brutalist, industrial landscapes, has become the undisputed star of the kitchen; its raw beauty and inherent imperfections delivering a rare authenticity to the space.
Caesarstone’s Primordia, part of its Metropolitan collection, is an inspired rough concrete finish, equally at home in the kitchen or bathroom. Its light grey base features soft mineral markings in off-whites and greys combined with veins of deeper grey and brown that reflect the oxidised rusts found in the natural environment. Traces of faint yellow and washed greens add to the textural quality of Primordia and create a sense of movement to the quartz surface.
Empira White, the second new colour for 2019, has taken Caesarstone a decade to perfect. Embodying the latest interpretation of authentic white marble, Empira White features the purest of white bases that creates an elegant backdrop to the fine black veins and underlying shadowy alluvial layers that together add depth to the polished quartz surface. The result is an organic interplay between light and dark.
Caesarstone’s Primordia and Empira White quartz surfaces are available from June 2019 and are two of 48 quartz surfaces available nationally. Pricing: Caesarstone Primordia installed from $900/m2; Caesarstone Empira White installed from $1100/m2.
