Exquisite craftsmanship: The unique design process of Caesarstone quartz

4033 Rugged Concrete LandscapeFor over three decades, Caesarstone has been at the forefront of designing exquisite quartz surfaces. With an ongoing ambition to push the boundaries of the technical and aesthetic capabilities of the man-made stone, you can rest assured that our quality craftsmanship is second to none.

We understand that your kitchen needs to bring you joy, not just when you look at it, but when you use it. We also believe that the worktop is the foundation that will bring your kitchen to life, which is why our expansive collection offers much more than a beautiful appearance.

Dig a little deeper and you’ll see from our meticulous process that we provide a worktop with unparalleled performance capabilities – a worktop that will perform for as long as you need it to – alongside innovative design concepts. For us, science and art combine in equal measures, positioning Caesarstone as industry leaders from every angle.

Where does the process begin?

Before a molecule of quartz is even selected, we start looking for inspiration. This comes in all shapes and forms: from the unique weathered patina that forms on a rusted saw blade, or the fluid texture found on a watercolour painting of the moon, to the intricate, deep veining that’s ingrained onto a natural stone.

The design team have built up a vast library of distinctive textures and surfaces, undertaking extensive research to capture the type of aesthetic that each surface can embody. Though sometimes completely abstract and as far removed as you can imagine from things you’d find in a kitchen, these resources then inform and influence the design process at every stage.

 

Each design is formed from different combinations of both natural and unnatural sources, sometimes taking months to fully realise. Countless iterations are sketched, rendered and reimagined until the team feel it is complete. The result is a truly unique product that mirrors a natural aesthetic that can’t actually be found anywhere in nature.

Collaborative minds

Since 2013, our Designer Programme has worked with some of the world’s leading experts across architecture, gastronomy, furniture, art and more. Through building relationships across a diverse range of communities, we can gain a unique insight into how our material can be interpreted in so many different ways.

Take Stone Age Folk as an example. A mesmerising display of abstract shapes and kaleidoscopic colours converge within this art installation in Milan by Jamie Hayon. Woven throughout the exhibit you’ll find swathes of Caesarstone quartz, from composite carousels to Hayon’s signature clown faces, the material takes on an entirely new perspective in the piece.

These brilliant collaborations have allowed us to develop a greater understanding of the global surface landscape. Seeing the innovative applications of our product transforms our approach to design and we can incorporate this knowledge into every slab to create truly dynamic concepts.
