The first instalment of Jaime Hayon’s year-long collaboration with Caesarstone was unveiled at IDS17, and will be followed by a major event during Milan Design Week in April.

Titled “Stone Age Folk” Hayon used Caesarstone as the essential component of his whimsical universe inspired by fauna – the natural world – and folklore – the mythical world. Blending fantasy with functionality, playfulness with craft, and interactivity with cultural references, Hayon created a kaleidoscopic and harmonic installation. Visitors recognized his signature smiling characters popping up throughout the space, alongside balloon artists, wall panels, lights and tables.
“People tend to see Caesarstone as a material that is only used in kitchens, but I looked at it from the viewpoint of an artist and designer. With this in mind, I wanted to create my own imaginative cosmos, using the brand’s quartz material alongside other noble materials like glass and metal.” – Jaime Hayon

The installation used over 48 different Caesarstone colours combined with metal and glass, employing traditional techniques of stone marquetry and metal crafting, showcasing Caesarstone as a precious stone.
