Décor & Gardening
Not just a slab
Being the only importers of these show-stopping European collections, Studio Masson proudly provides South Africans with access to these products, much to the excitement of architects, décor lovers and homeowners all over Durban who are now able to get their hands on the products. While the showroom is based in Cape Town, the website enables us Durbanites to view the collections and products, get help and advice from the experienced sales teams and get items delivered to us!
More than just a pretty surface.
Most of the products are comprised of 30% to 40% recycled, non-volatile, non-polluting materials. Furthermore, they are manufactured in state-of-the-art production facilities meeting all the highest eco-standards.
“Designing with low impact and creating innovative spaces that embrace sustainable living is no longer a trend on the fringe,” says Heidi Masson, co-founder and co-owner of Studio Masson. “The majority of our product offering is deemed eco-friendly as the products are made entirely of natural materials without toxic resins or chemical binders; conforming to the stringent European Green Standards.”
Aside from the sustainable advantages, Studio Masson is known for their innovative large-format collections that offer the illusion of natural components such as wood, stone and concrete but without the fragility and wear-and-tear of these products.
“This is a whole new way of looking at tiles and slabs. There are no longer boundaries and limitations to the achievement of architectural realisations. The beauty of nature can now be combined with the exceptional and practical physical attributes of fine porcelain and glass,” says Heidi Masson. She adds that another first in South Africa is their extended Sicis collection (Studio Masson boasts the only Sicis showroom in the country). One of the collections within the Sicis range, the Vetrite collection, has garnered much attention. The various colours and textures fused between two glass sheets result in extraordinary tiles that encapsulate and boast every beautiful detail.
Studio Masson is proving that it is possible to blend exceptional design and sustainability philosophies into commercial and residential architecture.
