blu∙stone™ is a unique base material developed by Michael Gottschalk - discovered and refined from Japanese injection molded materials. Durable like stone, any texture or color can be conceived and molded to make stunning forms and shapes. With little production wastage due to its recyclable nature, this eco-friendly material is anti-microbial, non-porous and lasts a lifetime. Gottschalk says "Being able to create these dramatic designs, with much less impact on the environment than traditional bathware products is a great source of pride for our brand." A designer favorite, blu∙stone™ is luminous and highly tactile, offering highly durable and versatile fixtures for contemporary bathrooms, regardless of space or budget requirements - with an extensive collection of luxury freestanding bathtubs, sinks, vanity tops with integrated sinks & shower bases. Environmentally friendly blu∙stone™ products meet or exceed the highest standards including cUPC and UPC certification, ANSI standard & a selection of ADA compliant & LEED standard products available. Unlike gelcoat products, as a true stone material - blu∙stone™ emerges from the mold with a matte finish, which is then polished to create a gloss finish. blu∙stone™ is a live finish, achieved through a hand-crafted process on a natural stone composite, thereby the embossed pattern may exhibit a faint shadow or grey effect on white, while on other colours it may slightly change over time to better reflect the colour of the stone. DURABLE Crafted from 80% quartzite, blu∙stone™ is a highly durable material, which is high-pressure injection molded, anti-microbial & non-porous. Low maintenance & repairable, blu∙stone™ bathware is stain & scratch resistant. COLORS + TEXTURE Visually luminous, blu∙stone™ is homogenous in nature & available in a choice of matte or gloss finishes, and a carved embossed pattern which can be custom designed. blu∙stone™ tubs & sinks are available in a white matte & gloss as standard, while a range of other colors are available including black, concrete, lime green & biscuit.

SUSTAINABLE blu∙stone™ is sustainable given its low energy production process - requiring less time in the kiln at lower temperatures than its ceramic counterpart. Further, as a recyclable material, there is limited production wastage - which is good news for the landfill. blu∙stone™'s material composition provides superior water temperature retention, thereby reducing water usage. As a highly durable & repairable material, blu∙stone™ keeps replacement costs & related energy expenditures to a minimum. DESIGN FLEXIBILITY Our blu∙stone™ collection includes beautiful condo sized bathtub options, suitable for freestanding or alcove installation. blu∙stone™ is the ideal material for creating custom design solutions to support project specifications.
