To build buzz around the DIEM: Design Intersects Everything Made event, which kicked-off in Los Angeles today, the West Hollywood Design District and Caesarstone revealed four one-of-a-kind studio pieces designed by acclaimed designers and showrooms in the district: Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Robert Kuo, Phyllis Morris and DSI Entertainment Systems.
“The creativity that the designers put into these pieces is amazing and I think the community will be very impressed with the unique applications," said Sagi Cohen, CEO of Caesarstone US.
Participating designers were challenged to design a unique, never before seen furniture item.
This one-of-a-kind Chevron Coffee Table by Bullard represents the designer's eclectic and stylish interiors. Inspired by the shapes and palates of great Italian furniture makers of the ‘60s and ‘70s, this piece exemplifies his strong, graphic approach to design.
Jie, meaning ‘knots’ in Chinese, which symbolize harmony and unification in the Chinese culture, inspired this rectangular dining table by Kuo. The base of the dining table is hand-repousse copper with an antique copper finish. Repousse is the traditional art of hand-hammering decorative relief onto sheet metal.
The Accordion Console by Jamie Adler, Brand Director for Circa by Phyllis Morris, is a fashion-inspired furniture piece created with Caesarstone’s Black Crocodile embossed surface, combined with Phyllis Morris’ signature silver leaf.
The High Performance Loudspeaker by Adam Paper of DSI Entertainment, a VIA International company, and Brian Barr, CEO of CAT (California Audio Technology), created a pair of ultra high performance freestanding loudspeakers. The piece, inspired by architects, designers, homebuilders and audio/video installation specialists, utilizes red and white Caesarstone, aluminum, steel and copper.
