1,000 Vibrant Colors of Surface Materials to Reimagine Your Space


If you’re looking for some colorful inspiration for home design, look no further than Finnish surface material company Durat. Located in downtown Helsinki, the new Durat showroom features the brand’s solid surface materials in a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors in various uses. The material is available in more than 1,000 colors and styles with a range of granule sizes and textures. If you can’t find the exact color you want, they will custom make it for you. Besides the awesome variety of color options, their surface materials are sustainable and made from post-industrial plastics, making them 100% recyclable. Confused as to what you can do with Durat materials? You can create walls, countertops, integrated sinks, vanities, shower trays, tables, desks, benches, you name it.

Durat’s materials have a terrazzo look, which can be seen in the samples and vignettes displayed throughout the showroom. While regular terrazzo can be colorful, Durat has it beat with its deep, rich hues. Durat’s showroom designer and user of Durat materials Linda Bergroth says: “The new showroom highlights the endless possibilities of Durat materials. It underscores unconventional color combinations and textures, inviting and inspiring designers to discover their individual ways to use the materials.”

Durat has spent the last three decades researching and testing plastic materials being reused. Their products are currently the only commercially available solid surface material where everything is made from post-industrial plastic waste. They’ve closed the circular loop by repurchasing their materials, upcycling them, and reselling, doing their part to create a circular economy.
