CAESARSTONE COLLABORATES WITH DESIGNER RONA MEYUCHAS-KOBLENZ FOR LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL 2015
Caesarstone and Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz from Kukka design will present an exclusive composition of surfaces and tables at the Thirty Four Project installation at TENT London, 24 - 27 of September 2015.
August 2015: The leading manufacturer of premium quartz surfaces, Caesarstone will collaborate with Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz from the British design house Kukka on the creation of the Thirty Four Project at Tent London on view from the 24 – 27 of September 2015. This exhibition promotes Caesarstone’s 2015 Supernatural Series through an innovative re-interpretation of surfaces and tables. These will be presented using the 1141 pure white colour from the colour palette as a primary source of colour from the colour palette as a primary source of inspiration.
Modern and geometric in their design, the exhibited surfaces and tables are inspired by manufacturing techniques, quartz structure and Caesarstone surfaces. The exhibition's name, Thirty Four, was created in reference to the unique palette of 34 colours within the Caesarstone 2015 Supernatural Series.
Designer Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz, originally inspired by the 1141 colour - the epicenter of the whole collection - was then further captivated by the additional tonalities of the 2015 Supernatural Series colour palette, which she then included in the overall tables and surfaces' composition.
Eli Feiglin, VP marketing of Caesarstone, emphasizes: ‘Caesarstone continuously aims to inspire and challenge the creative world to use its surface materials in innovative ways. We are proud to be a part of London Design Festival and excited that Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz, once again, chose to use our product in her design.’
Designer Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz adds to this: ‘Thirty Four Project highlights an imprinted memory and acknowledges the nature of the material, combining Caesarstone surfaces and the Quartz material in a unique interpretation. It has been really inspiring to work with Caesarstone material and manufacturers and a great honour to be invited to work on the installation at Tent London’
