CAESARSTONE SELECTED AS EXCLUSIVE MATERIAL SUPPLIER FOR BREAKTHROUGH HIGH-END VESSEL SINK LINE BY DESIGNER JAE OMAR
Van Nuys, CA (Jan. 26, 2009) – CaesarStone, the pioneer in quartz surfaces, 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 is 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 the Jae Omar’s unique vision to life,” said Arik Tendler, President of CaesarStone US. “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’re honored to be part of their success.”
“CaesarStone was chosen for use with our highly architectural, sculptural sinks for a number of reasons,” said Jae Omar, custom furniture and interior designer who created the Sonobath sink lineup. “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.”
The sinks are hand crafted at the Sonobath’s Southern California studio. “Another reason we chose CaesarStone is the company itself, which has a reputation for great customer service and shares our adventurous spirit and constant quest for better design,” explained Omar.
About the Sonobath Sink Lineup
The ETHOS, HYDROS, CHAOS, TITUS and MYTHOS sinks are designed to reflect an intriguing intersection of simplicity and complexity – redefining of the boundaries between art and design, form and function, structure and romance.
ETHOS, the original inspiration for the line, is composed of converging planes that overlap each other at complementary angles, bringing balance in an asymmetrical fashion. ETHOS features a concealed drain system and is available in standard and custom sizes.
HYDROS also offers symmetry through asymmetry, with the focal point of the sink positioned off-center. HYDROS is available with a choice of two drain systems – brushed nickel slats or a recessed tray covered in natural river rock.
CHAOS is designed to awaken the senses – and to remind us that water and stone have always meant to be experienced and enjoyed together. Its unique broad plane surface is similar in effect to infinity pools, with a series of precisely engineered cuts utilized to release the water’s surface tension without splashing.
TITUS is similar to CHAOS in concept, yet it employs a symphony of subtle details and angles to broadcast the water evenly, where it drains out of sight. TITUS is available with a series of brushed nickel accessories, adding to its everyday functionality.
MYTHOS celebrates the dramatic movement of water down its single, angled plane surface – as in the rush of a secluded mountain stream – before it disappears down the hidden drain the moment before it reaches the user. MYTHOS heightens the senses yet embraces functionality, just as the other models in the Sonobath line are designed to do.
“In many ways these sinks defy reason,” explained Omar. “We believe the focus should be on the highly tactile, sensual relationship between man, water and stone, not on where the water goes.”
