Here at Gather Co we want to ensure that the gap between your screen and our surfaces is bridged. As such, we have developed this Texture Guide to provide a general understanding of the finishes across our collection and to offer a sense of the ‘feel’ you can expect from each variety.
*Please note: This is intended as a guide only. Some surfaces may sit outside the prescribed finish as stated below. It is not a Slip Rating, you’ll find that in the “Resources and Installation” section at the bottom of each product page.

As leading architects of the world-renowned practice SAOTA, Antoni and Truen are known for their uncompromising contemporary design with a philosophy of simplicity, restraint and refinement of materials. For Steen, which means ‘stone’ in Afrikaans, they took their inspiration from the dramatic boulders found on the coastal cliffs around Cape Town. The range features an unusual horizontal orientation in stylized forms which are powerful and bold, yet delicately poised.
Made from glass-reinforced concrete, which is lighter than regular concrete the Steen range has been given a beautiful buffed suedelike finish in concrete grey, limestone white and boulder black. The three sizes work particularly well when grouped together and can be endlessly configured to dramatic effect. Their chiseled profile works beautifully at eye level however they are at their best seen from above offering an endless dance of potential placement.
Architects Greg Truen and Stefan Antoni of SAOTA share a distinctive design vision that has shaped their partnership of 20 years. Based on a clear language of function meeting form and in the pursuit of true architectural design their large practise is in demand across the globe. SAOTA have completed buildings in a staggering 86 countries.

South Africa - A land of incredible diversity, the rugged charm of South Africa is breathtaking. Encompassing a superb infuse of cultures, religions and languages - this region has evolved over generations to develop design techniques like no other. A wonderful collision of competing influences present the perfect combination of raw beauty and refined perfection.
Glass-Reinforced Concrete - GRC is a special mix where ordinary cement is enriched with not only aggregate but glass fibres too. This combination serves a similar purpose to steel rebar but, is not susceptible to rust. It’s popularity amongst the design community has grown exponentially in recent years due to its ability to be formed into virtually any size, shape and profile.
