Every now and then, life surprises us by reminding us how beautiful it can be. Rich in colors and excitement, full of joy and delight, very simple, cheerful. Sometimes we experience that moment while grilling with friends, in an evening walk with the person we love, with the smell of morning coffee...
But what if we told you that this is not about the moment at all, but about the place? About the place where you are always at your best. The place that invites you to be spontaneous, daring, and smiling. The place where you feel life as it should be. That place is called Istria.
Less Water Wasted
The place that inspires us.
Stone and similar materials are deeply rooted in our family history. Our legacy dates back to 1995, when Stefano's grandfather and father started a business processing natural stone. Stefano spent many years working alongside them, learning the trade and gaining valuable experience. He was always fascinated by the beauty and durability of stone and dreamed of creating unique designs that showcased its full potential. In 2017, Stefano finally realized his dream by creating the first outdoor shower made of stone. From that moment on, he knew that he had found his passion and continued to innovate and push the boundaries of what was possible with natural stone.
Today, Stefano's father serves as our manufacturing advisor, bringing his expertise to ensure that we maintain the highest quality standards.
We are committed to delivering products of the utmost quality, engineering and testing each item in-house to ensure top performance. Our goal is to provide the best possible solutions for our clients. While most of our products are designed in-house, we also collaborate with Sandro Užila, a like-minded designer who shares our values and philosophy, to create unique design collections.
Created by Slow Design Principles
What is Slow Design?
Firstly, Slow Design is not about reducing the production speed of a product but creating a product design that captures the attention of its user and slows them down in the process.
Slow Design incorporates many of the principles related to sustainable design and branches out from the original slow movement that began with Slow Food.
How do we fit in?
Slow Design relates to products that are both thoughtfully produced and thought provoking and that’s where we come in.
Through quality craftsmanship and innovation, we want to show our customers the loving process of care and attention that goes into each and every one of our products and our hope is that our products will enrich your homes with a daily source of beauty and inspiration.
Slow Design is at the core of everything we do here at KORTA and our products provide a balance to today’s industrial-consumerist design model.
