we × Marble

Once upon a time in Amsterdam

Stoned is founded by Derkan Atakan and John ter Riet. The love for marble has always been in our blood. In 2014 we saw an opportunity to offer something exclusive yet totally familiar and we started to create our own products using high-end marble. Simple serving and kitchen boards, cut and polished by hand in our own small workshop, and other basic yet elegant designs.    In our Amsterdam neighborhood we joined a pop up shop where our first marble items got sold. Our collection grew and so did our points of sale. From stylish concept stores in Amsterdam to the Dutch luxury department store De Bijenkorf now our products are available in over 180 concept, design and department stores across the globe.

We think of our marble designs as being understated basics. It’s exclusive – every piece of marble is unique – yet pretty straightforward with a minimalist, easy-to-use approach. In our beloved Amsterdam neighborhood – where it all began – we now have our own shop and office space filled with urban and chique marble homeware, inspired by our open-minded hometown.

Marble care

Our marble designs are made to last a lifetime but there are some things you need to know about marble. For example, don’t drop it! Marble is beautiful and strong but also fragile. Marble is a natural product. The black marble collection is mostly black with white veins, but brown and gray coloring may appear, the white collection is natural white with gray veins and traces and the pink marble collection can have yellow or purple coloring. Little holes and cracks may appear.   Our products can be used in the kitchen and the bathroom. When you wanna clean your marble piece always use water and a mild dishwashing detergent. Never use bleach!   Since marble is porous pat dry immediately so water and liquids do not get the chance to soak in and leave a mark.   Soaps can contain acidic or oily components which can mark the marble. In the kitchen you have to be aware of using acidic products like vinegar and lemons. If you do not wish to give your white marble some extra color please do not use strong pigments like kurkuma and beetroot.   You know, just like wine marble develops a wonderful character with age. Little stains and marks only add character to your marble piece. Embrace it.   If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to contact us. Just drop us a line.
