Vegetarian restaurant Ethos in London has updated its look with engineered stone table tops supplied by Diespeker & Co.
The London based restaurant had previously used black marble table tops, but wanted to avoid the problem of staining that had previously been experienced. Diespeker offered a temporary replacement for the old table tops while the new material was chosen.
The preferred option was to replace the existing tops with engineered stone (or quartz) tops with the same appearance as Nero Marquina marble – a black marble with white veins originating from Spain. The material is almost as hard as granite, resistant to heat, scratches and cuts. Its surface doesn’t absorb liquid so bacteria from spilled drinks or food isn’t a problem.
In a busy restaurant like Ethos, a surface is needed to withstand day to day use, and an engineered stone that has the look and feel of marble, without the issues of wear and tear under restaurant conditions, proved an ideal solution.
