Outer is excited to introduce our new OuterStone Outdoor Dining Collection, which combines the exceptional durability of sintered stone with Outer's signature classic designs. Here's a closer look at this revolutionary collection and the unique properties of sintered stone that make an ideal choice for your outdoor space.
What is Sintered Stone?
Sintered stone combines the beauty of natural stone with modern engineering. It is made through a process known as sintering, in which raw materials (like minerals, glass, and natural stones) are exposed to extreme heat and pressure. The initial pressed stone is baked again and the resulting final sintered stone slab is incredibly strong and durable. This process also has a lower environmental impact compared to other engineered stones like quartz; because sintered stone is made of 100% natural materials, it does not require any petroleum-based resin binders or sealants.
OuterStone boasts some remarkable properties, including a high stain, heat, and UV-resistance. It's also highly scratch resistant so it can withstand daily wear and tear and still remain scratch-free even after years of use.
Why is Sintered Stone Ideal for Tables and Countertops?
Sintered stone has recently gained popularity as an elegant option for kitchen counters and backsplashes. While the marbling of sintered stone not only looks incredibly luxurious, its unique properties make it well-suited for cooking and dining surfaces.
Sintered stone has a non-porous surface. This makes it a more hygienic surface with fewer areas for bacteria or fungus to grow. In addition to its natural stain resistance, sintered stone is easy to maintain and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Outer is excited to be the first to see sintered stone's potential for outdoor furniture use. Sintered stone, sustainably sourced and exceptionally robust, perfectly encapsulates Outer’s commitment to creating long-lasting, eco-conscious outdoor furniture.
