What is Essastone?
Essastone is made from up to 95% natural quartz, Essastone is remarkably resilient and virtually maintenance-free with high resistance to stains, scratches and heat. Immaculately designed and crafted in Europe, Essastone encapsulates the superior functionality of engineered stone with finishes so beautiful, they are a work of art.
Essastone benchtops are more than a showpiece; they’re the central point of your home – a place for family and friends to gather for years to come. That’s why Essastone is designed to reduce staining, scratching, and citric acid marks, making any messes quick and easy to clean.
Essastone can be used in a range of vertical and horizontal applications in commercial and residential spaces, including kitchen benchtops, bathroom vanity tops, splashbacks, furniture, and internal wall cladding.
Fresh sophistication merges with classical allure in the Essastone European-made collections. Featuring beautifully veined marble looks, subtle and bold aggregates, and industrial style concretes, the Essastone range offers endless design possibilities.
Inspired by the way we live, the Essastone colour palette encompasses the textures and tones of our diverse Australian lifestyle.
- Whites: Reflecting today’s design environments, from the purest whites to warmer tones, allowing striking features for classic and contemporary spaces.
- Marbles: Make a luxurious statement with a delicate or sweeping veined marble and create the high-end look of natural stone without the compromises.
- Concretes: This sleek range is authentic and robust in texture, reflecting a strong modern aesthetic, giving a cool edge to any contemporary environment.
- Minerals: Inspired by natural elements from the earth, these timeless tones and subtle feature colours will effortlessly complement your interior.
Essastone is available in a wide variety of finishes. Matte, honed, weathered and igneous finishes have the same durability characteristics but require additional care to maintain stain and scratch resistance compared to Essastone gloss finish.
- Gloss: Finely polished to an ultrasmooth, highly reflective finish that intensifies the colour of the stone.
- Weathered: Shallow dimples, ripples and creases develop during the unique production process to create the appearance of a concrete slab weathered by the elements. No two slabs will be identical.
- Matte/Honed: A smooth and even matte finish, pleasing to the touch and minimal reflection.
- Igneous: An innovative matte finish with small areas of slightly higher gloss and a slightly uneven sub texture that produces a natural feel.
