Concetto by CaesarStone ... The FIRST Hand Crafted Surface Made With Real Semi-Precious Stones

SUN VALLEY, Calif. (March 27, 2006) — Whether used as a stunning entryway, eye-catching back splash or elegant vanity table, Concetto® by CaesarStone turns any room into a masterpiece. A unique quartz surface made with natural, semi-precious stones, Concetto is just as at home in the kitchen as it is in a skyscraper lobby or high-powered boardroom. Concetto is the surface of choice for those who demand the very best.

During the manufacturing process, the semi-precious stones are imbedded into CaesarStone’s quartz surfacing by hand, much like a fine piece of jewelry. The original manufacturer of quartz surfaces, CaesarStone offers eight Concetto styles for consumers, architects, designers and builders to choose from, including:

  • Patina – circles of green with specks of brown and white created with Apple Jasper
  • Sinopia – a montage of warm browns created with Petrified Wood
  • Indigo – vivid blue joined by streaks of black and white created with Dumorterite
  • Rosado – a vision in pink created with Rose Quartz
  • Puro – a soft white created with Quartz
  • Sfumato – a light brownish-red to deep transparent red color created with Carnelian
  • Intaglio – a collection of browns that appear in nature created with Jasper
  • Pastello – fine lines of light blue and white created with Blue Lace Agate

 “For those who want to make an elegant design statement, Concetto is the perfect surface material,” said Arik Tendler, president of CaesarStone. “We’ve incorporated beautiful, natural precious stones into our quartz surfacing to make an amazing product that can be used for a variety of applications. Concetto can be applied to an entire countertop for a wonderful bold look or as an accent to doors, tables or chairs. The only limit is your imagination.”

Concetto conveys elegance and style and is ideal for those that want the best in stone décor. Ranging in price from $400 to $500 per square foot with installation, Concetto is available nationwide through upscale kitchen and bath showrooms, architects and designers.
