Los Angeles, CA – December 14, 2015 - Award winning architect Dan
Brunn, AIA, Principal of Dan Brunn Architecture, has joined forces with
Caesarstone to create the interactive booth at the upcoming Kitchen and

Over the course of the show, Caesarstone will celebrate its newest

until then, Brunn gives exclusive insight into his booth design below.
If you will be at KBIS, be sure to stop by booth N1015 on Jan. 20 for a
special presentation by Brunn.
1. Describe the Caesarstone booth you have designed for KBIS
The design intent is to showcase Caesarstone slabs in
a new and evocative way, and to celebrate the newest colors. 2016 marks
the launch of new colors and textures, so I wanted the design to
showcase the product on a large scale. There are large 4' x 8' panel
walls that fan out on the main circulation artery of the exhibition
space. The entire space is weaved together with fluid dynamism. Curving
walls undulate and turn to form individual spaces within the
The spaces are:
- Cafe / Bar–a built-in coffee machine area, featuring a
barista and bartender. It includes a full kitchen showcase.
- Cooking Kitchen–a working cooking area to invite a
- Lounge–a sofa area for casual meetings.
- One to One–an area for dealers and product reps to sit
down with clients and vendors for casual talk.
- Media Bar–a long 12' table with laptops and iPads to sit
and display digital galleries. Behind is a TV Panel wall with touch
- Concetto Gallery–an intimate gallery space, showcasing
the semi-precious line. Slabs are hung on the wall and
2. What was your inspiration for the space?
Displaying the new colors in an innovative way was my
inspiration. I wanted the stone to appear lightweight and really
showcase the celebration of new colors. This booth is unconventional by
having a core surrounded by a delineated boundary. I wanted to create a
unique façade for each of the four sides. Typical booths are more open
and don’t create a strong visual presence, instead, they act more like a
bazar or simple product display. I wanted to create separate spaces and
a strong visual image for the brand. Something people will photograph
3. What is one of your favorite highlights of the booth
One of my favorite highlights is the panel display
and fluid walls. Also, the unique experience of walking around the
booth, and then entering to experience the product and space.
4. What do you want visitors to take away from visiting the
I’d want visitors to remember the booth’s visual
impact and hopefully, have a tactical memory of the product within the
space. I think the design elements beg to be touched.
5. How have you worked with Caesarstone before?
I’ve had a relationship with Caesarstone for nearly a decade. I
designed their award-winning flagship showroom in the San Francisco Bay
Area in 2007 and also a few of their offices throughout the country.
Now, we’re working on their distribution centers in Chicago and New
