Textured Treats


May 18th, 2012

The range of quartz surfaces at Caesarstone is undoubtedly one of the most impressive in the market. Of the collections available, Motivo is the one that plays to one’s sense of touch. It is a series of textured quartz surfaces that appeals to one’s desire for sensual experiences.


The collection consists of 4 patterns: Lace, Braids, Crocodile and Stripes. These are made from a patented manufacturing process that combines 2 types of finishes to create an embossed 3D effect. The patterns take inspiration from their namesake, naturally, and offer new alternatives for bathroom wall cladding, kitchen backsplashes and even custom-made furniture. Lace lends a delicate touch to spaces, while crocodile offers a distinct feeling of luxury. Stripes goes down a more architectural route while Braids is appealing for its subtlety. All 4 versions in the Motivo collection are available in black, white, grey and beige.


Of course, style comes hand in hand with substance at Caesarstone. Motivo, as with all the other Caesarstone collections, promises robust quartz quality that will last for years to come. Quartz, being an inert and non-porous material, is highly durable and is resistant to scratches and stains that are usually caused by fruit juices, liquid food colouring, coffee, tea, wine and soft drinks.

In addition, Caesarstone quartz is also able to take to heat more than other stone surfaces including granite, marble and limestone. In fact, it can withstand temperatures of up to 150° Celsius. Best of all, it is almost maintenance free, with no need to seal, polish or wax – simple soap and water will do! Indeed, Motivo offers practicality as much as it does a chance to create rich and unique experiences.
