Archant Porcelain

The Ultimate Kitchen Benchtop Surface for Designers by Florim Stone

Archant Porcelain is large format porcelain stoneware for benchtops, splashbacks and other decorative surfaces. Lightweight, versatile and with an extremely high aesthetic impact, Archant Porcelain opens up new frontiers in design environments, ensuring maximum freedom of expression.


Why choose Archant Porcelain for your benchtop?

Durable and Heat Resistant Stone Benchtop

Porcelain stoneware is a mixture of natural materials pressed and subjected to a firing process at over 1200°C. This makes the surface resistant to wear, mechanical stress and thermal stress; even from the hottest pans. It is a material that caters to your every culinary experiment as even the failed ones clean up easily.

Our Archant Porcelain does not contain resins, is hygienic and is entirely safe in contact with any food. The colour does not change over time and the surface is scratch-free.

Colour and Size Options for Ultimate Versatility

Single colour, the texture of stone, the elegance of marble or the extravagance of metal. Now with Archant Porcelain, a single surface can bring all the elements of the kitchen together with style and practical functionality.

This revolutionary surface offers the widest range of choices, guaranteeing attention to detail, stylistic research and tailoring. Thanks to two different available thickness choices and three textures, Archant Porcelain truly allows the modern day designer the versatility and freedom of customisation.
