10 Unique Designs Created out of Caesarstone

by ·

On Wednesday, September 17, Caesarstone hosted their first-ever “Design Out Loud” event at the Sub-Zero and Wolf Showroom at the Philadelphia Naval Yard. The event brought teams of designers, architects and fabricators together to create one-of-a-kind quartz sculptures and wall art made of Caesarstone.

“Our new ‘Design Out Loud’ event is a way to connect with the architects, designers and fabricators that use Caesarstone regularly and showcase other unique ways to use the product,” said Sagi Cohen, CEO of Caesarstone U.S. “Caesarstone is known for being an innovative leader in the design space, and we look to these industry professionals to extend their use of Caesarstone and create new ideas.”

Ten of the “Design Inspiration” teams were paired with fabricators to create functional floor pieces out of Caesarstone’s quartz slabs. Each of the 10 “Wall Art” design teams were inspired to create wall art combining Caesarstone color samples with other materials such as glass, reclaimed items, wood or metal.

In addition to those teams, there were also submissions from artists who created wearable items using Caesarstone.

Man, I wish I could have been there. The creativity on display was pretty awesome. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite pieces from “Design Out Loud”.

Michael Manthey, “The Alchemist” Jeweler, stated:

"I look to nature to create my work because symbols are derived of nature and are the first language of all humans.  Symbols engage us deeply as expressions of the organic principles and forms that life embodies."

Okay, Michael! All I know is that is some amazing arm candy right there.

Seesaw: HDR working with DeSavino and Sons

This unconventional children’s seesaw features a curved base, which rocks back and forth, unlike a typical pivoting seesaw.  The weight of the Caesarstone combined with the curved design of the seesaw allows the unit to maintain a constant balance. Children can sit either on the ends of the seesaw or in the span across the center.

Sink: Renewal working with Abruzzi Stone

This team was “inspired by the blending of styles such as using the contemporary yet classic look of the London Grey Caesarstone Quartz with the organic aesthetic of the reclaimed live-edge slab.  To not hide the beautiful grain in the wood, we created a vessel without a bottom, using the wooden slab as the counter and the sink base."

The remaining teams each had unique submissions as well. Here’s a quick rundown of all the rest:

Dave Hime, founder/curator of JapaneseTrash.com, has been an interior design addict for as long as he can remember. In 2005, he bought a house-in-progress and missed several opportunities to have an influence on his own home decor–leaving him wanting more. With design heroes such as Blake Dollahite (ruraltheory.com) and Robert & Cortney Novogratz (thenovogratz.com), Dave began seeking out online resources that would exemplify the interior design practices he's most drawn to: using color, texture and simple materials well. Bringing all of this together, along with his specific focus on providing interior design inspiration from a man's point of view, is Dave's mission: masculine design.
