Islands is a new kitchen concept by Raw Edges and Caeserstone that playfully explores the preparation and enjoyment of food in the home.
Previewed earlier this year at the Interior Design Show in Toronto, the project will be presented as an interactive installation that explores food and dining within the domestic environment. Based on the idea of kitchen islands, a series of Caesarstone worktops have been designed with purpose-built voids that appliances and cabinetry can be slotted into.
"For the Milan presentation we want to further-explore the concept of the sliding of objects into Caesarstone Islands," say Raw-Edges founders, Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay. "The focus will be on the kitchen, which will be set as a working station - a stage for performing cooking. Thanks to a rare creative freedom afforded to us by Caesarstone, we have carefully developed a conceptual interior that we hope will influence the mainstream."
The project will be presented in the Palazzo Clerici, Via Clerici 5, Milan between April 9-13, 10.00-18.00.
