Game of Stones. The go-to surface has shifted from quartz to more progressive thinking companies like Lapitec, who designed the surface of the future: sintered stone. Designed to withstand the elements and enable healthier living in healthier spaces, sintered stone outperforms quartz and natural stone on all levels. Designed by Breton, one of the most innovative companies in man-made stone, Lapitec has decades of expertise incorporated into its recipe and inherent characteristics which make it the superior surface on the market. Quartz may be on its final season.
