as one of four new textures, the sapienstone ‘calacatta light’ claims to be colder in color than classic calacatta marble. its bright white background is interspersed with subtle gray veins that are reproduced across the whole slab. like italian marble, the material adds a light elegance and refinement to a space, which, in this case, is a kitchen’s countertops. it is completed with a polished finish, and is available in a thickness of 12mm.

‘white calacatta’



a warmer option, ‘white calacatta’, is one of the brand’s most precious surfaces. its white background is flushed by creamy, golden veins that seem to radiate in appearance. the hues of these veins change uniquely in every single slab, creating kitchen countertops with equally as unique and luxurious designs. called ‘book-matched’ surfaces, ‘white calacatta’ and ‘calacatta statuario’ can be united to offer a mirrored pattern with a refined symmetry. whether discrete or glamorous with silk or polished gloss finishes respectively, the dual surface design is available in a 320x150cm size and 12mm thickness.

‘premium white’





deep, warm, mysterious black is the color of the ‘noir’ range. as part of their monochrome surface collection, the product offers an elegant yet highly versatile porcelain surface to worktops within modern or traditional kitchen interiors. it can be made as a continuous surface, defining an aesthetic formality that further accentuates its dark hues. finally, its natural finish provides visual and tactile qualities that add a touch of warmth to a setting.



‘rovere baio’



the ‘rovere’ collection brings the beauty of wood together with the technical advantages of porcelain stoneware. inspired by oak, the surface’s texture visualizes the warm texture of wood. a special varnish then ensures it provides the tactile sensation of softness when touched. these characteristics are all offered whilst the innovation does not mark or absorb liquids and is resistant to high temperatures. the collection is available in two colors: rovere baio in a dark shade, and rovere buckskin in a paler shade
