For the first time since the launch of Caesarstone’s Designer Programme in 2013, this year it will span multiple locations including the Interior Designer Show (IDS) in Toronto, Milan Design Week, followed by locations in North America, Europe and Asia.
The vision of Caesarstone CEO Yos Shiran, the programme pushes the boundaries of experiential design events.
Four semi-professional kitchens based on Ice, Fire, Earth and Air form the basis of Tom Dixon’s vision, along with a celebration of local heroic foods from the four chosen cities.
Each kitchen will have a theme that relates to the local culture (for example, Ice for Toronto and Earth for Milan). Processes such as freezing, harvesting, pounding and chopping will be incorporated, while noise, steam, flame and smoke will add to the creation of a theatre of food and cooking that demonstrates the hardwearing qualities, durability, flexibility and beauty of Caesarstone.
The first Toronto kitchen will feature 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.
