Who is SapienStone?

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

SapienStone is a proudly Italian brand born out of the Iris Ceramica Group, specializing in kitchen countertops, worktops, tables, and more, all made from porcelain stoneware.

For over 50 years, the Group has been a world leader in the manufacture of superior quality porcelain stoneware and ceramics. With a presence in over 100 countries worldwide, and a vast choice of wall and floor solutions, that cover a wide range of sectors and applications, the aim is to meet any requirements within the construction and residential sectors.

SapienStone is design, innovation, and quality, offering superb large format ceramics for kitchen counters, vanities, tables, outside entertainment areas and more.

SapienStone dresses your kitchen in a wide range of colours, textures and finishes. This product is a full-body material with veining, which creates a realistic effect that has never been achieved before with other similar products.

All the companies owned by Iris Ceramica Group, such as SapienStone, have succeeded in keeping alive the spirit of their founder, Romano Minozzi, along with his work attitude, inventiveness, and inspiration.


“I strongly believe that innovation means courageously creating a demand for a new product, especially when we can make our clients, architects, interior designers and builders pleased with the design and quality that they can experience and achieve using our collections. Even when we have to recreate, redesign or redevelop an existing product, our R&D department carefully study the projection and impact that these changes can cause in the market. This concept combined with good strategies and outstanding quality, creates the best approach that the company can have towards the future. New lifestyles require new products, and these ones develop the story of the tile industry. Indoor and outdoor spaces of homes, offices and public spaces are constantly having more options of design and new techniques, transforming the way in which materials are used. The future holds great things for those who believe, innovate and rethink their concepts, as for the products, they’re going to be expressions of these beliefs.” Romano Minozzi Founder

SapienStone is available across South Africa, and we are proud to be a part of this story.
