Decorational patterns make the material unique

StalaTex combines the unbeatable qualities of stainless steel with beautiful, decorational patterns. They are created with a modern and environmentally friendly laser technology, which can draw the designer's vision onto stainless steel. This way our familiar and practical material can show itself in a new, warmer, light and welcome life into the kitchen.

The first StalaTex collection is created by the Finnish designer Harri Koskinen. He describes the design process and the creation of the collection as follows:


"This was all about bringing more warmth and comfort into homes. A curiosity towards a new technique created a spark for the design. The themes for the patterns stem from contrasts, geometry and associations with the environment, which can be acknowledged from the finished collection. The surfaces exude a certain personality and humaneness when you can distinguish the designer's contribution in the textures."

Due to its new appearance, stainless steel will endure hard use but also the long looks. Actually it is practically calling out for admiration. The collection contains different styles of patterns, so everyone can find a choice to fit their style of interior decoration.

The unbeatable properties of stainless steel, such as withstanding heat and it being hygienic and ecologic, are now available in an even more attractive form. StalaTex patterns do not wear out in even hard use, and the patterns additionally make scratches and dirt less noticeable on the surfaces.

Welcome, life.
Welcome into a more beautiful kitchen!
