Leading quartz manufacturer Caesarstone has announced it will collaborate with leading designer Tom Dixon for their 2016 Designer Programme.
October 13th, 2015
Since 2013 the programme has pushed the boundaries of experiential design events with engaging work from Nendo, Raw Edges and Philippe Malouin. For the first time, the 2016 programme will span multiple locations, commencing in January at the Interior Design Show (IDS) Toronto, continuing to Milan in April for Milan Design Week and followed by other locations in North America, Europe and Asia.
Tom Dixon’s vision for the collaboration includes four semi-professional kitchens based on the themes ice, fire, earth and air, celebrating local heroic foods from the four chosen cities. Each kitchen is themed around an element relating to a feature of the local culture. Processes such as freezing, harvesting, pounding and chopping will be celebrated, with the noise, steam, flame and smoke creating a theatre of food and cooking and demonstrating the hard wearing qualities, durability, flexibility and beauty of Caesarstone.
“Caesarstone has primarily been used for kitchen surfaces and food preparation, and this installation marries our own design essence and creative platforms with Tom Dixon’s innovative vision of elements and culture-inspired kitchens,” says Yos Shiran, CEO of Caesarstone.
The first Toronto kitchen will experiment with the translucency and luminosity of Caesarstone in an art gallery installation. Playing on the tradition of Canadian ice fishing and challenging Caesarstone surface materials with very low temperatures, food will be served on a floating water conveyer belt across frozen surfaces.
