The collaboration between Caesarstone and Snarkitecture at this year’s IDS Vancouver was informative, innovative and inspired. Waves of attendants had the chance to explore “Altered States”, the engaging installation that had celebrated debuts in both Milan and Toronto. The collaboration successfully combined a three-part elemental showcase to produce a visual feat, where water was the medium of choice.
THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE WATER
Each of the three featured states turned the kitchen island into a habitat of floating pedestals, installed to portray a natural and amphitheater-like landscape, aimed to magnify the central role the kitchen island plays in one’s life. Masterfully illustrated by correlating it all to the most indispensable of elements, water. Each island was constructed from Caesarstone colours 5100 Vanilla Noir, 5110 Alpine Mist and 5143 White Attica, and stacked in layers to form topographical expressions titled Ice, Steam and Water Island.
THE DREAM KITCHEN
We’re setting at a new standard of design innovation for the home, and we made sure Vancouver got a taste of it with a fast-forward look at the kitchen of the future. It was a showcase of elevated aesthetics with unexpected highlights of Caesarstone merged with advanced technology. The entire kitchen featured cutting-edge trends in seven new and inspired Caesarstone colours.
As a celebrated key sponsor for the past six shows, we made sure that this year’s IDS Vancouver Caesarstone Stage featured a lineup of equally remarkable speakers. Our stage presented visitors with engaging and educational keynote lectures from various design industry leaders such as Canada’s own Brian Gluckstein, prolific design visionary, Karim Rashid, and award winning designer Sebastian Herkner.
