Cicley Worrell IIDA, Designer, Shook Kelley


  • Creating a sophisticated, modern bar and eatery within a casual neighborhood setting
  • Designing a bar area to be attractive and inviting, yet practical and easy to clean and maintain
  • Choosing durable, renewable materials that will stand up to the daily wear and tear in a busy bar and restaurant


  • Choosing a versatile solid surface that could be used for a traditional bar, or a unique drink rail, and could accommodate a custom steel ice tray for chilling beverages.
  • Finding a material with all the visual impact of a heavy stone slab without the many limitations common with natural stone.
  • Finding a surface in a stylish neutral color that could stand up to spills, hot plates, food service code requirements and constant use.



  • DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces were fabricated in a 3" thickness, providing the heavy stone slab look the designer wanted with the practicality required in a bar and restaurant setting.
  • The unique, reflective quality of Zodiaq® surfaces worked well with other design components, such as dark woods, warm lighting and orange accents—adding to the modern elegance of the space.
  • Zodiaq® is heat- and stain-resistant and nonporous —ideal for withstanding red wine spills and food service applications.



  • Zodiaq® quartz surfaces offer an extensive color palette providing unique depth and shimmer.
  • Zodiaq® surfaces offer the beauty of natural stone without the necessary polishing or sealing. It also resists chips, cracks and scratches, offering excellent durability and renewability.
  • Versatile Zodiaq® is nonporous, which makes it easy to clean and maintain. It meets NSF/ANSI 51 Certification necessary for commercial food service applications.
