Dezeen promotion: Vicostone has launched ultra-thin quartz surfaces that are available in several colours to suit a variety of purposes in interior design.
The Vicostone Ultrathin Quartz slabs measure just five millimetres in thickness, which makes it "the world's leading thin quartz slab" collection.
It is designed by the stone supplier Vicostone for ease of delivery, fabrication and installation, while ensuring that it can be easily applied to a mix of different interior surfaces, ranging from kitchen counters to staircases.
"The recently introduced Vicostone Ultrathin Quartz has quickly gained attention as it's the world's leading quartz product of its unique thinness," said Vicostone.
"There are a lot of reasons for it to be heavily sought after by interior designers and architects. Despite its significantly reduced size and weight, Vicostone Ultrathin Quartz still retains its excellent performance and beauty of quartz."
The Vicostone Ultrathin Quartz slabs are available in several colours to ensure the product is applicable in any space.
Each slab is made from approximately 90 percent pure, natural quartz, which ensures it is "super durable, resistant to stain, scratch, heat, impact and corrosive chemical agents", unlike other quartz products.
Vicostone Ultrathin Quartz is also extremely lightweight so it can be delivered quicker and more easily than other natural stones.
In comparison with natural stone and traditional quartz slabs, Vicostone Ultrathin Quartz is also easier to cut – negating the need for complex tools and machinery. This helps to reduce dust released in its manufacture, improving the environmental credentials of the product.
Vicostone recommends the Ultrathin Quartz for use on countertops, full wall backsplashes, and shower walls. However, it can also be used on structures ranging from staircases to fireplace cladding and tables.
The material can also be used to revitalise old furniture, as it adheres to wood and metal surfaces.
Vicostone first introduced the Ultrathin Quartz at IMM Cologne – the international furniture and interiors fair that took place in Germany earlier this month.
