The three new designs from COMPAC, The Surfaces Company have expanded its premium Unique Collection™ to a selection of eight. The new additions are Unique Carrara ™, Unique Bianco ™ and Unique Pietra ™. The company’s move to extend its catalogue also includes a new, highly innovative ‘Crêpe’ finish, to sit alongside Glacé—a matt finish that upon its release, represented a huge leap for the sector.
This article looks at the three new designs, their uses and features, which also apply to the other five in the Unique Collection™.
Hues and applications
The three designs come in two clear hues with dark veins and a dark shade—complementing Unique Marquina™, the firm’s benchmark dark hue design. Similar to the company’s other quartzes, these new products take their inspiration from nature and its visual appeal, whilst enhancing technical features. This is reflected in the different patterns for each piece enabling COMPAC to offer exclusive designs. And where can they be used? The possibilities are endless: reception areas, tables and counters; desks; walls and shelves; worktops; sinks; professional kitchens; education centres, and public spaces.
Profiles, formats and finishes
The Surfaces Company has come up with a highly expressive and naturally realistic material for use by interior design and architecture professionals, making it possible to create highly natural composite and graded pieces. Unique CollectionTM designs come in three finishes: Polished—accenting colours—, Glacé—a non-reflective matt—and the aforementioned new Crêpe finish. The slightly roughened finish of Crêpe is a delight for the hands and eyes, providing reflections and creating a highly natural sensation to the touch.
These technological quartz designs have been created with biodegradable plant resins, are completely safe for use with food, do not harm air quality and have been manufactured according to environment-friendly processes. Thanks to this commitment, they have been awarded certifications from BIO, NSF, Greenguard and the U.S. Green Building Council.
