CaesarStone Selected as the Exclusive Material Supplier for Breakthrough High-end Vessel

Van Nuys, CA (November 17, 2010): CaesarStone, the Original Quartz Surface, has been selected by Sonobath, LLC as the exclusive stone supplier for its new collection of high-end vessel sinks. Created by celebrity designer Jae Omar, Sonobath’s portfolio of innovative sinks are available through architects, interior designers and designated kitchen and bath retailers.

The Sonobath line includes five distinctive vessel sink models – ETHOS, HYDROS, CHAOS, MYTHOS and TITUS – each offered in a limited edition, natural palette of CaesarStone colors.

“CaesarStone is honored to be working with Sonobath in bringing Jae Omar’s unique vision to life. With their bold, converging planes and ingeniously engineered drain systems, these sinks look like fine artwork for the bath, yet they are also completely functional for everyday use. They truly represent a new dimension in vessel sink design and we are honored to be part of their success.” Arik Tendler, President of CaesarStone US.

The sinks are hand crafted at the Sonobath’s Southern California studio. Ranging in price between $2,200 and $2,800, the floating pieces feature specially engineered hidden drain systems and are often mistaken for sculptural pieces, rather than the practical everyday vessels they are. Sonobath utilizes Caesarstone as the exclusive stone supplier – selected for its quality, durability and range of rich colors that embrace the essence of the designs.

"CaesarStone was chosen for use with our highly architectural, sculptural sinks for a number of reasons. Each sink is engineered to create a new dimension in water and stone, so it was critical to find a highly durable, slab-based surface that is clean, simple and consistent, with colors that embrace the essence of the designs."

Jae Omar, Sonobath

The recent innovative pairing of the simple and elegant Lotus sink, which forces elegant natural curves into opposing corners of a slab of smooth stone, and CaesarStone’s newest innovation in texture Motivo, creates a feast for the eyes. Both elements are revolutionary in their own way. Motivo uses a brilliant new technology to apply an embossed effect to a range of CaesarStone surfaces. Sonobath’s Lotus sink was created after countless hours of perfecting a method of “bending” CaesarStone to achieve the subtle organic curves of the Lotus to mimic a flower petal. This elegant Motivo wall application married with Sonobath’s Lotus sink creates a truly awe inspiring result.
