Caesarstone To Debut Multi-Material Portfolio at KBIS 2023
Quartz surfacing pioneer adds porcelain and natural stone to offerings.
Caesarstone will transform the countertop industry in North America in 2023 with the monumental launch of its multi-material surfaces portfolio: Porcelain and natural stone will join the quartz and outdoor quartz portfolio for which the company is so well-known. For over 35 years, Caesarstone has been turning design dreams into reality as the global leader in premium surfaces, specializing in countertops that create dynamic spaces of inspiration in the heart of the home. The expanded portfolio of more than 100 colors tastefully combines the company’s innovative technology with its powerful design passion, empowering consumers to design with freedom. The new additions to the Caesarstone portfolio will debut at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) January 31-February 2, 2023, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth N651.
“This is a pivotal moment for Caesarstone,” said Ken Williams, president & CEO of Caesarstone The Americas. “We wanted to make it easy for people to design their dream spaces by offering our multimaterial surface solutions all in one place. Across the world, people choose Caesarstone because we bring joy and freedom to the design process. We strive to be a leader in design, innovation and sustainability, and are incredibly proud to once again work with designer Brian Brown to showcase this launch at KBIS 2023.”
Expanding its product portfolio is just one of many initiatives Caesarstone is undertaking to achieve its strategic mission to become the leading, multi-material surfaces brand and the first brand of choice for countertops all over the world; all under one brand—the trusted Caesarstone name. Adding porcelain and natural stone allows Caesarstone to expand its product offering with new designs and application possibilities creating a mixed portfolio of infinite options.
For the new porcelain range, Caesarstone utilizes its technological expertise and design leadership to capture the visual qualities of a wide range of material types: from natural marble to the industrial aspects of concrete and metal. The heightened veining, palpable textures and dynamic patterns of the Porcelain collection are available in a highly curated range of 25. The product marks a leap forward in technology, functionality, and design specifically developed for countertop applications, boosting functional properties that make it a superior option:
- Superior durability to withstand stains, scratches and outdoor elements
- Extreme heat resistance
- Designs with striking color schemes, bolder veins, textures, and patterns
Caesarstone porcelain offers the same nonporous hygienic health and easy maintenance benefits as the company’s quartz offerings.
A curated collection of responsibly sourced, high-quality natural stone also joins the Caesarstone portfolio in select markets around the country. Stock will vary from location to location and will include some of the world’s most beautiful and exotic marbles, granites and quartzites.
Caesarstone outdoor quartz was the first of its kind in the surfaces industry. Designed and tested to withstand the sun’s rays and the most extreme outdoor weather conditions year after year, Caesarstone’s outdoor surfaces provide the answer for every homeowner’s desire to cook, dine and entertain from the comforts of their own outdoor space. The entire outdoor collection is nonporous, durable, scratch-, stain-, mold- and mildew-resistant, and easy to clean. It can sustain high temperatures of 122F (50 Celsius) to as low as -22F (-30 Celsius). Porcelain is also a suitable and superior option for outdoor applications.
The Caesarstone KBIS installation, entitled JUXTAPOSED, is designed by Brian Brown Studio to highlight the beauty and diversity of the company’s expanded offerings in a warm and welcoming manner. “We really want to show off Caesarstone’s expertise with multiple materials,” said Brown. “So we used all of the different textures and colors to create a truly dynamic design, one that celebrates the diversity of options available. The juxtaposition of the materials creates an interesting design effect while allowing viewers to easily compare and contrast the offerings.”
In support of Caesarstone’s sustainability mission, the KBIS booth has been designed to be used multiple times: it will debut at the Interior Design Show in Toronto, January 19-22, before traveling to KBIS. And will then go on to permanent installation at Caesarstone showrooms around the country.
“We believe in leading by example,” said Gail Conroy, vice president of marketing for Caesarstone The Americas. “And we understand that our reputation as a leader in our industry not only depends on our products but also on the way we engage with each other, our partners, customers and suppliers.”
All Caesarstone manufactured surfaces are made from naturally occurring minerals utilizing the purest particles molded together with resins and pigments to create a sustainable product that is non-porous, non-toxic, hosts no bacteria, mold, or mildew, and requires no sealants or wax. All are independently certified as low-emitting by GREENGUARD and are NSF-certified. All Caesarstone manufactured surfaces are long-lasting and durable, providing both improved life-cycle cost and additional investment value. All are backed by lifetime warranties to reflect the high performance and durability qualities while meeting stringent product emission standards and having very little impact on indoor air quality.
Now, with the addition of porcelain and natural stone, consumers can find their dream surface no matter the material. A Caesarstone countertop lets life unfold around it because it is made for whatever life brings.
