Ibrido – Italian for hybrid – is Smartstone’s latest collection heroing beauty, aesthetics and revolutionary design. And as a pioneer of environmental care, Smartstone’s eco-samples are giving homeowners a taste of what is to come.
Forever leading pioneers, Smartstone is a master of combining the beauty of natural stone with the durability of quartz. There has always been an underlying ethos of balance with Smartstone, which comes with its new Ibrido collection.
The collection balances aesthetics and sustainability through seven incarnations of eye-catching masonry. And Smartstone’s exclusive hybrid print technology ensures every slab is identical and suitable for every home.
Ibrido’s seven unique designs
1. Magnificent marble of Calacatta Oro
An interpretation of magnificent Italian marble, veins of grey that shimmer with gold highlights – all on a lustrous white background.
2. Stormy sights – Elba Bianco
Reinventing the wheel – the striking grey-white Italian marble is distinguished by its shadowy grey veins and specks.
3. Elegance in shadow – Grafite Grigio
Dark and elegant, the marble shifts between shades of grey that are highlighted by linear, pale veining.
4. Luxury in the forest – Onyx Verde
Like a summer forest, Onyx Verde features different tonalities of green, reinterpreting in prized Iranian marble, enriched by shades of white, creating depth and transparency.
5. Balancing the bold and the fine – Statuario Grigio
Gleaming white, with bold-to-fine streaks of grey, the Statuario Grigio perfectly captures the luxe of Italian marble.
6. Gleaming distinction – Super White
A recreation of Brazilian marble that is a swirl of contrast, featuring distinctive tones of light and dark grey veining.
7. Limestone Luxury – Tundra Grigio
Forever the favourite, Tundra Grigio revitalises limestone surfaces with grey tones and subtle brown veins that embody richness.
Eco-samples for every slab and homeowner
Ibrido provides eco-samples delivering precise surface reproductions on 100 per cent recycled cardboard. The printed reproductions on the Ibrido eco-samples reflect the precision offered in this ground-breaking new range.
Beauty and durability are one thing, but another facet of Smartstone is its leadership in environmental care. And this extends to the Ibrido sampling: 100 per cent recycled and 100 per cent precision.
“Replacing stone samples with cardboard samples reduces product waste while providing an accurate reproduction of the range. This allows homeowners to view a sample portion of the Ibrido slab, with all the aesthetic qualities of the final product, in a recyclable and lightweight format,” says Smartstone’s Managing Director, Belinda Kelaher.
And with just a taste, homeowners can grasp the true beauty and impressive attention to detail which the Ibrido Collection embodies.
