Empira Black™

Empira Black™ 5101

Bold. Timeless.

Empira Black™ is a rich, deep black base beautified by delicate white natural veins. Inspired by the characteristics of natural forms, this intriguing and sophisticated design bestows spaces with the authentic feel of marble. It is the beautiful opposite of Empira White™.


Heightened by its Polished finish, Empira Black™ transforms any room into a luxury experience. A creative interpretation of natural stone, this black marble inspired design expresses luxury and drama, yet at the same time a timeless classic that reflects the subtle beauty of nature with its discreet organic veining.

Design Advice

You may wish to use colours that work in harmony with Empira Black™ for backbench tops and wet areas to create a seamless look and feel. In some cases, using colours that work in balance can help to optimise your budget.

Empira Black™ features veining and movement, which can create variations between multiple slabs. To enhance design outcomes, discuss the stone's design flow with your stonemason before cutting.

We recommend the mitred apron edge profile for benchtops greater than 20mm in thickness to achieve the best surface-to-edge pattern continuity.

All edge profiles should have a minimum 3-4mm radius to reduce chipping risk and increase safety. A 6mm radius will help enhance surface durability.
