At the start of 2016, Caesarstone, manufacturer of quality Quartz surfaces for commercial and domestic kitchens, began a year long collaboration with British designer Tom Dixon. ICE (shown above) introduced a series of four conceptual kitchen installations inspired by the elements Water, Fire, Earth and Air.
Combining the appearance of basalt with highlights of gold and brass (typically ‘Dickensian’ metals), The Fire Kitchen suggests warmth and flame. It resonates beautifully with Dixon’s ‘Melt’ series of pendant light fittings, fashioned in copper.
The design firm envisions this theme spreading beyond the walls of the kitchen to entire houses and buildings, imagining the next step of our living conditions. MVRDV hopes to take the accepted norms of today and push past them toward newer, better solutions. The desire for transparency has already resulted in a project called ‘Crystal Houses’ in Amsterdam, a traditional facade made from glass, as well as an office with all glass interiors, furniture and equipment in Hong Kong.
According to Eli Feiglin, The Vice President of Marketing at Caesarstone: “Each year we explore a new design concept that displays different elements of Caesarstone; be it new colours and textures, or inherent surface characteristics such as strength and durability. This year (2016) we are pushing the limits of experimentation with the material, collaborating with design innovator Tom Dixon. His work is extremely inventive, fresh and thought-provoking; and we feel it brings a fascinating new angle to the creativity typical of Caesarstone’s kitchens.”
“It is a part of the house that is very essential but it occupies a big space and not everybody uses it the same way. The Gali kitchen is the intention of letting each individual distribute their space as they want having everything necessary to cook when wanted or needed but allowing the living space to embrace new possibilities such as nomadic life, as Gali can be taken apart in four modules so you can pack it as part of your luggage when moving.”
When you’re downsizing into a space-challenged apartment, getting rid of a bunch of stuff is the first step, but actually, living there on a day-to-day basis ultimately requires all sorts of space-maximizing tricks and hacks. Sometimes that means resorting to methods like storing clothes in a rarely-used oven or building a sleeping loft so shallow you better hope you don’t sit bolt upright in the middle of the night, but some crafty designers and DIYers have managed to come up with integrated solutions that look great, especially considering the diminutive dimensions of each room.
GeniCan is easy to install on most square or rectangular garbage cans, and the idea is simple. When you finish an item and are ready to toss the package in the trash, GeniCan scans the bar code and adds the product to a digital shopping list that travels with you to the store on your phone. If it can’t sense a code, it asks you what it should add to your list so you never forget what you need.
World-renowned fashion powerhouse Dolce & Gabbana has recently teamed up with the Italian appliance company SMEG to craft a collection of vibrant, avant-garde kitchenware. The line is called “Sicily My Love” in reference to its attempt to embody the beauty of that island and the culture of Southern Italy, which D&G designers Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce both call home. Adorned with important patterns and figures from Sicilian folklore, the collection proudly displays the brands’ shared heritage in a marriage of function and art and makes extensive use of floral, fruit, and bird imagery.
