SapienStone is crafted from ceramic clays and mineral colorings … and thanks to this unique manufacturing process, these slabs will not be altered by heat, light, or chemical cleaners and disinfectant products. These gorgeous surfaces were designed by Iris Ceramica Group S.p.A., a world leader in the production of top quality porcelain and high-tech ceramics for more than fifty years. Their goal was to develop a product that would be visually stunning, provide outstanding performance and be practical in residential and commercial applications.
SapienStone dresses up your space with a complete range of colors and finishes to create an exclusive, dynamic look. This range includes products that cater to a variety of tastes – from the ultra-modern to the more classic and traditional style. All products are full-bodied including some with marble veining, guaranteeing the perfect polished look in any home or office.
SapienStone is naturally resistant to high temperatures. Unlike wood, laminates, and quartz products, SapienStone will not burn in the event of fire, and it will not suffer thermal damage if you place a hot coffeepot or pan on it. SapienStone’s slabs can also be used outdoors, as sunlight does not alter any of its features.
SapienStone’s scratch resistance is better than other products. Where wood, laminates, and quartz countertops suffer continual damage from scratching, SapienStone’s tough surface can withstand daily wear and tear – and there are no colored resins or protective paints, such as those applied to other materials to add color or gloss.
Perhaps best of all, SapienStone requires no special maintenance. SapienStone’s products can all be cleaned with ordinary soap and hot water or common cleaning products. It is resistant to chemicals and acids of all kinds, including lemon and vinegar.
SapienStone is the first brand of porcelain slab designed specifically with the kitchen in mind, offering countless benefits over other brands which are not specifically intended for use in the kitchen.
Uses vary widely – as a bathroom countertop, or as tabletop for either indoor or outdoor use. The advanced technical performance of the product also permits applications to both floors and walls. Use the same color on each surface for a polished and integrated look, or combine different colors for something a little bolder. The choice is truly yours.
