The Temple of Archimedes: the future of interior decoration

At Milan’s Fuorisalone, OKITE® - in collaboration with architect Marco Piva – makes its debut with new solutions for interior architecture and looks ready to conquer new sectors.


OKITE®, the internationally renowned brand specialising in worktops for the kitchen and bathroom, is about to start a new era. Gearing up for Milan Design Week with an impressive exhibition designed by Studio Marco Piva, the brand is set to showcase the intriguing new possibilities posed by its innovative material composed of up to 93% quartz.


From the United States to the United Arab Emirates via Europe and Asia, OKITE® – a 100% Made in Italy brand – has grown at global level thanks to its continuous innovation and is now further supported by the collaboration with architect Marco Piva. One of the biggest names in the contract design sector, Piva has conjured up a fresh interpretation of the properties of OKITE®, a cutting-edge material which counts robustness and aesthetic versatility as its main strengths.


The concept of the special art installation located at Corso Garibaldi 65 is Il Tempio di Archimede [The Temple of Archimedes], with the majestic setting offering a hi-tech spin on volume, perspective and primordial geometric patterning. A triumph of shape and colour whose focal point is an imposing tub oozing symbolic value, the project showcases a comprehensive picture of the infinite possibilities offered by OKITE®. Indeed, the brand’s formal purity and highly practical qualities mean it is the ideal solution for interior decoration, capable of taking residential, commercial and hotel spaces to the next level thanks to a strong contemporary identity. And there is no better example of this than the Translucent collection, available in three varieties: the semi-transparent surfaces are back lit using LED lights to create a unique scenic effect.


OKITE® is the leading brand in the quartz surfaces sector. Quartz is one of the most resistant materials in the natural world, making it one of the most appealing for multi-functional surfaces. Resistant to stains, heat and scratches, quartz is five times stronger than granite. It’s also non-porous, easy to clean, requires minimal maintenance and is the perfect material for creating natural spaces with high scenic impact.

OKITE® and Studio Marco Piva are taking advantage of the Milan Design Week spotlight to unveil two more prestigious initiatives: the main sponsorship of the charity project promoted in collaboration with Oxfam and the Via Durini Association, plus the exhibition of design works in the Hogan boutique in Via Montenapoleone.
