Concetto® by CaesarStone Adds to the Style and Beauty of HStudio Furniture Designs

VAN NUYS, CA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2009) - Concetto by CaesarStone, the breathtaking surface art created from semi-precious stones, has evolved into a luxury table and furniture line. Shlomi Haziza, a leading international artist, is incorporating Concetto hand-made surfaces as well as the energy semi-precious stones are known for, to influence the atmosphere anywhere in your home.

Haziza, originally from Israel, came to Los Angeles in 1991. After his move he began working in acrylic. He has spent decades finding new ways to use color and sculpting techniques to expand the nature of the material. The payoff is having his sculptures and designs featured in art galleries, museums and private collections.

"I am excited by the potential of combining Concetto hand-made surface with acrylic design," said Haziza. "My goal is to create a new luxury table and furniture collection that will bring natural, semi-precious stones into the home with nearly invisible, clear floating table bases, highlighting the natural beauty and translucency of both acrylic and Concetto Surface Art."

Concetto surface art is a unique semi-precious stone surface. The creation of Concetto involves semi-precious stones imbedded by hand to give each slab an original look. It is like buying an original work of art with every slab. With HStudio there is the option of getting this look in tables or furniture.

The new furniture collection will be created at HStudio in Los Angeles, Haziza's design and manufacturing studio, which offers nearly infinite acrylic fabrication possibilities, including more than a hundred skilled artisans, specialized acrylic fabrication machinery and a wide range of material colors, thickness and treatments.
