Caesarstone, the leading manufacturer of premium quality quartz surfaces, recently partnered with various designers from the West Hollywood Design District to create one-of-a-kind pieces out of Caesarstone. Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Jamie Adler of Phyllis Morris, Robert Kuo and VIA/CAT created unique pieces out of quartz that were unveiled at DIEM (Design Intersects Everything Made) in West Hollywood.
With four diverse collections, Caesarstone includes a variety of colors, patterns and textures that gives each customer the ability to create their own customized space. Caesarstone’s highly functional, fashion-forward product encourages freedom of design with enormous application possibilities such as backsplashes, wall paneling and furniture items. Participating designers were given the Caesarstone color of their choice, and were challenged to design a unique, never before seen furniture item.
Jamie Adler of Phyllis Morris created an Accordion Console with Caesarstone’s Black Crocodile Motivo and Phyllis Morris’ signature silver leaf. Adler’s inspiration stems from the unique crocodile texture of the Caesarstone surface and the fashion component of crocodile accessorized on a beautiful dress. Caesarstone’s brilliant, patented technology creates the world’s first quartz surface with an embossed effect. The quartz is inset among the ‘accordion folds’ of carved wood. This technique is used on the top and legs of the piece. The console incorporates a black underglaze to create a finish that is edgy and modern.
Robert Kuo created a Rectangular Dining Table inspired by “Jie”, meaning “knots” in Chinese, which symbolizes harmony and unity. The table top is Caesarstone’s Espresso quartz and the base is hand repousse copper with an antique copper finish. Repousse is the traditional art of hand-hammering decorative relief onto sheet metal. The form and design is achieved by working on both sides of the sheet metal. The overall design of the dining table embodies form, function and simplicity.
Martyn Lawrence Bullard created a black and white Chevron Coffee Table completely of Caesarstone. Known for his eclectic and stylish designs, Bullard’s piece exemplifies a strong, graphic approach to design. The combination of the inlaid chevron design on top of the solid cube of Caesarstone quartz gives this design a strong presence. Bullard strategically chose a black and white combination, on of this year’s hottest design trends, for a bold statement.
DSI Entertainment, a VIA International Company partnered with CAT (California Audio Technology) to create a pair of high performance speakers, the only speakers in the world made from mostly Caesarstone. The speakers utilize red and white Caesarstone, aluminum, steel and copper. CAT’s engineers and designers create loudspeaker artistic masterpieces that deliver better quality than recording studio musicality while intriguing the most demanding aesthetically conscious designers.
“Caesarstone remains committed to the design community both in the US and around the world,” said Sagi Cohen, CEO of Caesarstone US. “The creativity that the designers put into these pieces is amazing and I think the community will be very impressed with the unique applications of Caesarstone.”
