A design story: spotlight on Primordia

4043 Primordia is one of the latest additions to our Metropolitan Collection, a ground-breaking range that showcases Caesarstone's proprietary technology with designs inspired by the industrial trend. Think authentic, weathered textures found within manufacturing, perfectly set within both residential and commercial interiors.So what’s the story behind Primordia? Here we delve into the background of one of our most distinctive quartz surfaces, including its special features, where the inspiration came from and where to place it in your home…

Inspiration

The Metropolitan Collection is a fusion of industrial art and architecture and each of the designs have been inspired by manufacturing materials such as poured plaster, raw concrete and oxidised steel. Primordia combines the Metropolitan Collection’s industrial theme with natural elements, pushing the boundaries of design. Each slab reveals different qualities, depth and movement – making each cut extra special.

Primordia echoes the robust character of concrete, featuring a soft grey base, off-white accents and flecks of dark brown, grey and rust-coloured patina that mimics the imperfections of natural stone and organic, aging aspects of industrial materials. With subtle hints of faint yellow and washed green, Primordia has a truly unique complexity that creates a striking and sophisticated impression wherever it’s placed in the home.

 

 

Pair it with…

As Primordia is inspired by both natural and industrial elements, it’s an extremely versatile surface that blends with any interior style. Its neutral palette pairs flawlessly with other materials such as dark or light oak, concrete and stainless steel. For contemporary, industrial spaces, Primordia can be complemented with heavier elements like brushed metal hardware or colourful, glazed ceramics.

Primordia: a versatile, high-quality quartz

Like all other Caesarstone surfaces, Primordia is non-porous, flexible, durable, scratch and stain resistant and much lower maintenance than most other surface materials. Primordia can be used anywhere in the home, including bathroom interiors, pantries and bar areas, as well as kitchen worktops and splashbacks.

Primordia is heat resistant, requires no sealing or waxing and only needs to be cleaned with ordinary detergent to maintain its distinctive appearance. Our rough finishes may require additional daily care due to the nature of the design, but the truly unique and dynamic texture more than makes up for it. Caesarstone offer a limited 25-year warranty on residential applications, so you can rest assured that your investment will stand the test of time.
