We already have some exciting news about this year’s Milan Design Week. Caesarstone is collaborating with Jaime Hayon for its ell known exhibition taking place in Milan on April 2017.
Caesarstone is a leading quartz manufacturer and stands out with designer collaborations, aiming to join tradition with contemporary design scene. Last year, we have witnessed how an exhibition space turns out to be an experience of spatial and social interaction with Tom Dixon collaboration, took place in an old church. This year the brand will create a more playful environment thanks to Jaime Hayon.
Under the title of “Stone Age Folk” Hayon will use Caesarstone as a precious component of his whimsical universe inspired by Fauna – the natural world - and folklore. Blending fantasy with functionality, playfulness with craft and interactivity with cultural references, Hayon will create a kaleidoscopic, yet harmonic installation, which includes his signature smiling characters popping up throughout the space, alongside joyful carousels, wall panels, lights and tables.
The installation uses over 48 different Caesarstone colours combined with metal and glass, employing high-end traditional techniques of stone marquetry and metal crafting, elevating Caesarstone material to the luxury of a precious stone.
