Caesarstone Quartz Used in a Range of Innovative Art Projects

Caesarstone has well-documented uses throughout the home. What you may not realize though is that this material is just as versatile outside the home, too. Its unique manufacturing process focuses on delivering a high-quality material that offers outstanding performance, exquisite beauty and product flexibility.

This combination makes Caesarstone the ideal material to use in a range of innovative projects as demonstrated below.

Hayón's Stone Age Folk

Stone Age Folk was an exhibition from Spanish designer Jaime Hayón that was on display for Milan Design Week from April 4th-8th, 2017. Hayón combined traditional marquetry techniques with Caesarstone to construct a pavilion within the ballroom of the 18th-century neoclassical palace, Palazzo Serbelloni.

Using 48 different forms of Caesarstone, Hayón combined them with metal and stained glass to create a stunning series of frames containing depictions of abstract faces. These surround playful, bird-like furniture, whimsical carousels and light fixtures designed of Caesarstone materials.

"People tend to see Caesarstone as a material that is only used in kitchens, but I looked at it from the viewpoint of an artist and designer. With this in mind, I wanted to create my own imaginative cosmos, using the brand's quartz material alongside other noble materials like glass and metal." Jaime Hayón, Designer

Malouin's Movements

 

At Art Basel Miami Beach 2015, Canadian artist and designer, Philippe Malouin, created an interactive outdoor installation titled Movements that featured a 12-piece swing set, erected in a circular shape, surrounding a unique forest-like display featuring a cluster of geometric planters designed with Caesarstone quartz.

Some techniques he incorporated into his installation included traditional inlay, hand sculpting and marquetry. Malouin also explored the color and versatility of Caesarstone extensively to develop a range of textures, colors and shapes.

Raw Edges' Islands

 

Raw-Edges, a London-based design studio, created seven living Caesarstone islands that provide an innovative look at domestic spaces. This playful focus reimagines Caesarstone's properties and inspires their use for more unconventional purposes.

Islands by Raw Edges features seven surfaces that combine functional pieces such as the top of a vanity, a kitchen and a bathtub with more whimsical concepts.

A ping-pong table, fish tank and counter of wooden blocks juxtapose with the traditional uses of Caesarstone to deliver a fresh perspective that can be integrated into any design.

The above concepts are only three examples that highlight the stunning versatility of Caesarstone. Its combination of superior performance, inspiring colors, stunning textures and precision manufacturing provide the ideal material to deliver innovative designs that are limited only to the imagination.
