Kaolin Porcelain Surfaces was founded by Rita and Anton. Kaolin is a melting pot of creative people focused on clients, spaces, and an uncompromising sustainable product that heightens the senses. Rita and Anton were raised in different cultures with similar values, interests, and loves. Sydney is one of their loves, they cherish the lifestyle, the community, and being able to raise their kids in the nature around them.

During her youth in China, Rita was profoundly influenced by her grandmother, the family’s matriarch, from whom she learned the importance of family values and became captivated by the complexities of human connections and community life. Her passion for literature deepened, leading her to Australia for her education in Bondi, followed by a Master’s in Economics at KU Leuven (Belgium) and in Chinese Literature at Peking University. Before founding Kaolin, Rita gained significant marketing experience in the property development sector.

Anton, of Russian descent but raised in Belgium, possesses an innate curiosity about the mechanics of how things work, finding creativity within technical details. Anton’s educational background includes studies in International Business at UC Berkeley, Chinese Economy at Fudan University in Shanghai, and a Master’s in Business Engineering at KU Leuven. It was during his tenure at a Management Consulting firm that he met Rita through Mandarin classes. United by their shared experiences and aspirations, they decisively returned to Sydney to establish their roots.
