Karonia introduces The Unique Collection
Marking 10 years since the launch of the innovative Mistral range of 25mm solid surface worktops, solid surface specialist Karonia’s KBB2020 preview of The Unique Collection - a series of marble-inspired worksurfaces – has attracted a lot of interest and some excellent feedback.
The latest developments continue the successful fusion of nature's beauty and the practicalities of this adaptable man-made material. Bringing together the popular Aria and Moonscape decors with three brand new marble-inspired designs, The Unique Collection takes solid surface to a whole new level.
• Atacalma (pic 3) takes its inspiration from the vast open desert spaces as a tumbling mist of fine particles mixes with occasional flashes of white and dark grey.
• River Rock (pic 1 top) draws on the contours and textures that flowing waters carve into the surrounding stone with charcoal swirls highlighted against a white grey base.
• Seastorm (pic 2) embraces the chaos and majesty of the oceans with a wash of warm greys, crests of white and dark swirls adding depth to the overall effect.
The Unique Collection not only provides the colours to inspire the imagination of designers, but also the product sizes to make it easier to bring these ideas to life. The five Unique Collection colours will be available in the following sizes:
Worktop: 3010mm x 650mm x 25mm
Breakfast bar: 2100mm x 940mm x 25mm
Sheet: 3010mm x 760mm x 12mm
Upstand: 3010mm x 100mm x 12mm
"Following the success of Aria and Moonscape it's clear we are on the right track with regard to product design.,” reveals Andrew Pickup, Karonia director.
“Taking inspiration from numerous natural sources, we seek to create a solid surface interpretation that crucially retains the versatility and ease of working of our Mistral material. This approach has helped us to broaden the scope of our development resulting in the creation of decors that are exciting and original."
Samples and marketing materials will be available from early April prior to the official launch on 11th May.
