Caesarstone’s industrial-inspired Metropolitan Collection is shortlisted for an FX Award

Caesarstone, the world leading designer and manufacturer of premium quartz surfaces, is delighted to announce it has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.

Caesarstone’s recently launched Metropolitan Collection, comprising of nine colours, is shortlisted for the Surfaces category in the FX International Interior Design Awards 2018. The winners will be announced in a ceremony on 28th November 2018.

“We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award, having been selected by a panel of esteemed and highly influential architects, design experts and industry peers”, said Jon Stanley, VP Marketing at Caesarstone UK. “The Metropolitan Collection is quickly establishing itself among specifiers across residential, commercial, retail and hospitality projects. It is the first surfaces range to thoroughly investigate the unique styles of the popular industrial trend, offering finishes never before available on the market.”

FX comments on the award process: “Each year we invite a completely new panel of more than 20 judges from all disciplines, based on their authority, integrity and experience. The panel of distinguished experts are the very best from our contract design industry and include designers, architects, engineers and clients.”

Caesarstone’s Metropolitan Collection

Launched May 2018, Caesarstone’s newly curated Metropolitan Collection, features nine ground-breaking industrial-inspired designs for designers and specifiers working in urban and industrial styled interiors. Each energetically 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 – a breakthrough that can be felt as well as seen.

“With all the benefits and beauty of natural stone and real concrete, but none of the drawbacks, it’s clear to see why quartz is a growing category for designers and specifiers,” says Steve Gibbs, A&D Sales Manager at Caesarstone. “With the Metropolitan Collection, we are pushing the boundaries of quartz and bringing fresher design options to the table. Being shortlisted for this industry award is testament to our continuing innovation.”

Caesarstone quartz has many design applications but is perhaps known best for its prominence as the ultimate innovative material for worktops; drawing inspiration from the aesthetic beauty of natural stone and combining it with the hard-wearing qualities of quartz. A true virtue of the Metropolitan Collection lies in how it perfectly emulates and enhances the look of real concrete through nine different colours.
