DesignEX is an Australian exhibition for interior architecture and design. It showcases new and innovative products; informative seminars presented by leading industry professionals and prestigious awards.

This year at DesignEX, Caesarstone showcased the latest in colour, texture and design of Quartz surfaces. Seven new colours and two new design technologies were displayed including sandblasted and water jet cut surfaces.

With the design theme based around the intricate and beautiful dragonfly motif, Caesarstone demonstrated the versatility and design capabilities of this surface. Sand blasting, where an abrasive is used to blast the quartz surface, was used to create the dragonfly pattern.

The water jet cutting technique is made possible by Caesarstone’s immense strength where a fine stream of water which also contains abrasive powder is blasted at the material at high pressure, allowing it to cut through the quartz.

Highly effective, these patterned slabs can be backlit and used as feature walls, counters or petitions in commercial or residential design. Both processes are highly controlled and run off computer design creating endless applications for architects and designers.

Caesarstone was awarded “The Best Stand Design Award” in recognition of all the stand elements including visual impact & design innovation, lighting, flooring & walls finishes, signage, stand layout, visitor enticement & staff presentation.
