Designer Martin Steininger explains that stone was chosen as the material for BLOCK thanks to its highly resilient nature and ability to cope easily with all challenges in a kitchen. Stone can withstand extreme strain, and does not lose its unmistakeable appearance as a natural material. In addition to this, it is food-safe, hygienic and easy to clean, as well as highly heat-resistant in its natural form. Artificial stone can also be used as an alternative to a real stone surface.
"We place great emphasis on perfectly functioning detail solutions that are designed with great care and quality. Even the mounts and fittings work perfectly in our stone kitchen; we have optimised the weight of the fronts by designing the stone to be so thin."
