The Art of Darkness

We continue to push design boundaries in the creation of innovative surfaces with the launch of four dark, sultry shades. These new surfaces embrace a contemporary trend in kitchens and bathrooms that have recently set a bold tone. As an antidote to light and sometimes ascetic colour palettes, this softer mood is much more striking and unexpected.

From the classic luxury of 5101 Empira Black to the  evocative patinas of rusted 4735 Oxidian and weathered 5810 Black Tempal, the Art of Darkness presents an intriguing range of captivating hues that bring warmth to the home and an evocative caress to the stone.

Encompassing the mystery of dark stone, Empira Black has a dark base composed of rich, deep black, juxtaposed with fine, white natural veins. Inspired by the authentic characteristics of natural forms, Empira Black endows any space with the sophistication of marble but with a unique magnanimity not found anywhere else in nature.

Joining Caesarstone’s ground-breaking Metropolitan Collection, Black Tempal has soft, mineral deposits that give rise to a delicate, light veil of warm whites that contrast with the sturdy black charcoal base. Its textured, complex, industrial composition reflects a captivating interpretation of travertine, as its finish enhances the colour’s depth while capturing warm, granular highlights.

Another new addition to the Metropolitan Collection, Oxidian celebrates the industrial aesthetic of patina and the tactile experience of touch. Oxidian features a dark grey base that is tarnished with an oxidised russet effect that, just like rust, is distributed unevenly throughout the surface for an authentic finish.
