Caesarstone embraces the industrial trend with its new Metropolitan Collection. Rough and unpolished, this bold look forms part of the revival of modernism. Robust construction finishes have become a popular choice amongst consumers, inspired by factories and lofts and translated for residential and commercial interiors.

Each 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 exclusive to Caesarstone, weathered patinas have been achieved in quartz for the very first time.

“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," says Caesarstone UK VP Marketing Jon Stanley.

The company works with trend forecasters. "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.”

The Metropolitan Collection in detail

4046 Excava
"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 (leading picture) 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."

4643 Flannel Grey
"Grey has become a versatile neutral in the 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."
