West Hollywood Design District and Caesarstone , the leading manufacturer of premium quality quartz surfaces launched a series of unique studio pieces designed by four of the district's most acclaimed designers and showrooms.
Launched at the recent DIEM: Design Intersects Everything Made, the collection was designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Phyllis Morris, Robert Kuo and VIA/CAT. These custom Caesarstone pieces were revealed at a press event at Wall Street Gallery, the new destination for street art and pop art in Los Angeles.
With four diverse collections, the Caesarstone brand offers a wide array of colours, patterns and textures providing customers with the ability to create their own customised space. Caesarstone's highly functional, fashion-forward product encourages freedom of design with enormous application possibilities including furniture.
Participating designers were given the Caesarstone colour of their choice, and were challenged to design a unique, never before seen furniture item.
Accordion Console designed by Jamie Adler, Brand Director for Circa by Phyllis Morris
A fashion-inspired furniture piece created with Caesarstone's Black Crocodile Motivo embossed surface, and combined with Phyllis Morris' signature silver leaf, the accordion console is a result of Adler's inspiration stemming from the unique crocodile texture of the Caesarstone surface and the fashion component of crocodile accessorised on a beautiful dress.
Caesarstone's Black Crocodile from the Motivo collection is a unique quartz surface with an embossed effect, and is used on the top and legs of the piece.
Jie Rectangular Dining Table designed by Robert Kuo
This rectangular dining table is inspired by Jie, meaning 'knots' in Chinese, which symbolises harmony and unification in the Chinese culture. The table's top is made of Caesarstone's Espresso colour while the base of the dining table is hand repousse copper with an antique copper finish, making this furniture item truly unique.
Chevron Coffee Table designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard
Known for his eclectic and stylish interiors, mixing period and ethnic pieces into modern environments, international designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard has once again showcased his signature style with this one-of-a-kind coffee table inspired by the shapes and palettes of great Italian furniture makers of the 60s and 70s. Representing a strong, graphic approach to design, the table integrates the inlaid chevron design on top of the solid cube of Caesarstone quartz to give it a strong presence. Bullard strategically chose a black and white combination for a bold statement.
High Performance Loudspeaker designed by VIA/CAT
Adam Paper of DSI Entertainment Systems, a VIA International company has collaborated with Brian Barr, CEO of CAT (California Audio Technology) to create a pair of ultra high performance freestanding loudspeakers, made almost entirely from Caesarstone. Inspired by architects, designers, home builders and audio/video installation specialists, this piece utilises red and white Caesarstone, aluminium, steel and copper.
