Solid Surface HIMACS: a new colour palette with trendy shades

HIMACS Solid Surface presents a new colour palette with trendy shades to meet any requirement, whether it is for walls and countertops in the bathroom, worktops and wall coverings in the kitchen, or reception counters in the hospitality industry.

Another new addition is the Solid colour, Pink Leia, a delicate powdery pink shade, particularly suitable for bathrooms and kitchens.

The new HIMACS Aurora colours 

The four new 2024 shades in the Aurora & Marble collection are Aurora Almond, Aurora Stone Grey, Aurora Modern Grey and Aurora Calacatta Ramo.


Aurora Almond is a warm, relaxing shade that lends a sophisticated look to classic and contemporary spaces. An ideal surface for islands and wall tiles in kitchens. 

Aurora Stone Grey is a fresh, contemporary shade that expresses elegance and sophistication. An ideal surface for bathrooms and minimalist environments. Characterised by light grey tones and subtle shaded patterns, it combines perfectly with matt black elements. 

Aurora Modern Grey is a modern finish with a contemporary aesthetic that matches different design styles. 

Finally, Aurora Calacatta Ramo is inspired by the natural beauty of Calacatta marble, combining a smooth white base with warm burnished veins for an elegant and contemporary effect. This colour is ideal for large surface applications such as reception counters, kitchen island cladding, work surfaces, walls and bathroom floors.


The new HIMACS Gravilla colours 

Gravilla Millstone and Gravilla Charcoal are the two new shades in the Gravilla collection (in the opening photo). 

Gravilla Millstone is a combination of neutral colour textures and grey shades for a light and luminous effect. Gravilla Charcoal adds depth; its sophisticated look blends charcoal and black tones and is perfect when combined with metallic finishes in brushed gold or burnished brass.

A shade inspired by nature 

To meet the demand for green palettes inspired by nature, the Evergreen shade has been reintroduced into the HIMACS Solid range. Thanks to its non-porous, seamless surface that prevents the build-up of dirt and bacteria and makes cleaning easy, this colour is suitable for the retail sector.
