Caesarstone launches Darcrest

Caesarstone introduces dark worksurface inspired by mountainous rock formations

Pioneering surface brand Caesarstone has announced the launch of its latest surface. Inspired by the slow process of mountain formations, and the weathering process which gives them their shape, 5820 Darcrest is an ode to the outdoors and geology.

This layered design addresses an appetite for a darker aesthetic in the kitchen, a trend which is taking the kitchen industry by storm. 5820 Darcrest joins existing Caesarstone surfaces, including 5810 Black Tempal, 4735 Oxidian and 5101 Empira Black to help homeowners and kitchen designers achieve this bold, striking look.

5820 Darcrest boasts a dark earthy base, enriched with tiny spots and sediments evoking the look of rocky topography slowly accumulated over many millennia. Weathering gives shape to archetypical ranges, while mineral deposits are carried by rains, streams and melting snow.

The orogenic process of mountain making takes place over hundreds of years, from gradual tectonic shifts to dramatic volcanic eruptions, and Caesarstone has endeavoured to recreate this journey in 5820 Darcrest.

On this work surface, this slow and gentle erosion is revealed through a translucent veil of freckled ochres and brownish greens, achieving a stunning aesthetic and overpowering depth. The mysterious organic presence is further enhanced by its honed finish, which is smooth to the touch.
