Caesarstone announces its collaboration with New York-based collaborative practice Snarkitecture for their 2018 Designer Program. The 2018 collaboration will focus on the icon of the modern home, the kitchen island.
This year’s collaboration will present a realistic and practical interpretation of Caesarstone, one that looks at the functionality of the kitchen, while drawing from Snarkitecture’s signature blend of architecture and art. The first instalment of the collaboration will be previewed in January 2018 at the Interior Design Show (IDS), Toronto, followed by a main large-scale installation during Milan Design Week in April as part of Fuorisalone.
Snarkitecture is a New York-based collaborative practice established to investigate the boundaries between art and architecture. The name is drawn from Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark, a poem describing the “impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature.” In its search for the unknown, Snarkitecture creates architectural-scale projects, installations and objects. Snarkitecture’s work focuses on the reinterpretation of everyday materials, structures and programs to new and imaginative effect. With a conceptual approach centred on the importance of experience, the studio creates unexpected and memorable moments that invite people to explore and engage with their surroundings. By transforming the familiar into the extraordinary, Snarkitecture makes architecture perform the unexpected.
