Ice of Genesis was inspired by the great ice lakes in the Arctic. Imitating the feeling of walking on ice, exquisitely balanced between fragility and stability.
“It is a mixture of different elements: nature, emotions, social codes, and science. It’s this merger where we look for connection.”
Okay, let's not delay any more! Let's quickly move on to the designs and the colors of these groundbreaking substance.
“These slabs are as beautiful as a painting on the wall and as powerful as an ancient stone.” Arik Levy
The colors above are Ice Black, Ice White, Ice Nude and Ice Orange. What a piece of art.

Care and Maintenance – Compac Quartz Worktops
Compac Quartz is a hard wearing, easy clean surface. Simple routine maintenance is all that is required to keep your quartz worktop looking fresh and new.
- Soft cloth or a sponge and water is the only things you need to remove any surface dirt.
- A stain that is slightly more resistant needs a mild or neutral detergent. This will suffice.
- Place hot pots and pans on a trivet or a pan stand to avoid damage.
- Wipe up any spillages immediately, especially those involving oil, strongly colored foods, and drinks, and acidic spillages such as vinegar to prevent the possibility of staining.
- Never use abrasive cleaning products such as metal pads, scouring detergents and wool wire, as these harsh abrasives will mark the surface. Avoid alkaline and chlorine-based cleaners and do not use bleach. Compac Quartz is easily maintained without the need for such abrasive cleaners.
- When preparing food, a protective mat or cutting board should always be used to prevent unnecessary marking on the work surface.
