Caesarstone launches 4043 Primordia: A new addition to the brand's award winning Metropolitan Collection

The organic appearance of 4043 Primordia reflects the topological strata; alluvial layers that are found in stone created over aeons.

4043 Primordia combines these natural aspects with a rough finish, celebrating the beauty of patina and texture, whilst reinventing the kitchen as a striking cooking space outfitted with chef-quality appliances and sophisticated accents.

4043 Primordia's industrial look is accentuated by its unique imperfections; a theme common to each colour in Ceasarstone's Metropolitan Collection. It's cool grey complexion echoes the character of concrete, evoking a contemporary feel. Composed across its light grey base, soft mineral marks in off-whites and greys combine with darker veils of grey and brown to reflect the oxidised rusts found in nature. This authentic effect is completed by subtle traces of faint yellow and washed green, giving the surface more body.

Ceasarstone Chief Designer, Mor Krishner, comments: "With its imperfections, delicate patinas, rough texture, it has a truly unique beauty. The material plays in the boundaries between natural and industrial materials: when the natural starts to look industrial and when the industrial object ages and starts to look more organic."

4043 Primordia's visual details evoke the emotion of real stone, suited to kitchen tops, splash backs and cabinet cladding, as well as bathroom interiors. As a monumental island, it's neutral palette is versatile, blending with other materials such as concrete and dark oak flooring. In industrial spaces, the surface is complemented by heavier elements such as corrugated steel, compressed grey felt, or industrial hardware in brushed or stainless metal. Raw terracotta tile adds an organic accent, while brighter shots of colour reveal surprising contrasts. these glowing tones, such as glazed ceramics in mustard yellow or dark jade, also dress the countertop, bringing a sense of warmth.

4043 Primordia was born from the extensive and continuous research conducted by Ceasarstone's in-house design team in collaboration with some of the world's foremost forecasters, not least Li Edelkoort, the renowned design and fashion trend guru.

4043 Primordia comes in rough concrete finish and will be available in standard slab size, in either 20mm and 30mm thickness. More information at ceasarstone.co.uk
