SapienStone stoneware tops in the world’s tallest building: the Burj Khalifa in Dubai


For SapienStone, the word “top” has a double meaning: that of a porcelain stoneware top that stands out for its excellent aesthetic and technical features, which has “made it to the top” of one of the world’s tallest buildings, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. 

In fact, SapienStone takes center stage on the 80th floor of this legendary skyscraper in the kitchen design of a luxury apartment in this very building.

High up in the sky with SapienStone ceramic tops

The SapienStone ceramic tops were chosen to embellish the apartment of a wealthy client living in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.

The result of a collaboration with Moda Line – the exclusive distributor of SapienStone surfaces in the United Arab Emirates – and Goettling Interiors, this interior design project was about creating a kitchen that would also offer a special experience, that is, a spectacular 360-degree view across the Dubai skyline.

To make the living and kitchen area even brighter, the material SapienStone Calacatta Statuario, in a Silky finish, was chosen.

With its soft and attractive hues, this marble-effect stoneware kitchen top fits in perfectly with the other furniture accessories, bringing harmony and well-being into the entire space.

SapienStone Calacatta Statuario can be found in various areas of the kitchen, such as:

  1. open kitchen island with niche
  2. cooking and preparation area
  3. countertop with sink


The kitchen island has several customizations that stand out, in particular the distinctive shape of the countertop. In fact, the concave cutout surface was specially designed to be mounted flush with the impressive column that dominates the room. 

Moreover, the kitchen island top is designed in such a way that it can also be extended, and thus becomes a breakfast table. Another interesting detail is that it has a built-in pop-up electrical outlet shaped like a vertical turret, which comes up with a simple pull.


As Dubai’s skyline glistens in the desert sun, the kitchen complements this view from the sky, making it even more breathtaking.
