A shift towards incorporating dark materials has influenced contemporary design and decorating in the most stylish settings. Black marble, in particular, has the power to express opulence and drama, yet remarkably this timeless classic can also suggest the modest beauty of nature through the organic veining that discreetly traces its complex body.



With all the mystery of a dark stone, 5101 Empira Black has an enigmatic base composed of rich, deep black, beautified by fine white natural veins. Emotional and full of depth, Caesarstone’s Natural Finish heightens its elegant feel without overwhelming its innate essence. Inspired by the authentic characteristics of natural forms, Empira Black endows the space with the sophistication of real marble – yet still with truly unique elements that transcend its natural predecessors. 

With nearly three decades at the forefront of the quartz industry, it is the continued dedication to innovation that ensures every Caesarstone design is unique. It is this long creative journey, resulting in surfaces that excel in aesthetic and performance, that stands Caesarstone apart.


Perfect pairings

Empira Black transforms any room into a luxury experience. Whether as a contrasting island silhouette or used all-over for an utterly stunning look, this memorable surface combines well with other high-end finishes, such as classic hardware, black lacquered cabinets or dark woods like walnut. This creative interpretation of natural stone brings sophisticated, timeless classic qualities to any interior.

It pairs especially well with opulent gold highlights and luxurious pastel velvets to achieve a statement Art Deco styling. The impressive surface looks equally fitting in a farmhouse kitchen, being the epitome of classical design.
