They say time spent together is never time wasted, rather, it is time invested. This
year, Caesarstone’s IDS 2019 artist collaboration dives deeply into the consideration of food design, production and consumption, and how it translates into human connection. This year Caesarstone will be partnering with award winning Dutch designer, Marije Vogelzang. Together they will bring experiential and sensory activity to the forefront of the design packed exhibition.
A RECIPE FOR THOUGHTFULNESS
The installation will focus on the thoughtfulness Vogelzang believes should be present in the most sacred space in our homes – our kitchens – as the centre of meal preparation, conversation shared with guests, memories, happiness, and more. A honeycomb-like structure will engage and focus on generating stimulation from all sensory receptors, including taste, touch, scent, and sight, as visitors travel their self-directed paths, eliminating external noise and disruption.
Marije Vogelzang is a Dutch artist and mother of three. She attended the Design Academy of
Eindhoven where she fell in love with food, its emotional influence, and the power of its
rituals. In 2016, she started the Dutch Institute of Food and Design, and recently she became head of a new program at the Design Academy Eindhoven called FOOD NON FOOD, and holds guest lectures and workshops at other design and culinary schools.
CAESARSTONE AT IDS
For the past six years, our collaborations with Snarkitecture, Jaime Hayon, Tom Dixon
and more, continuously push the boundaries of experiential design. Each designer collaboration has offered a forward-thinking take on the versatile material. This year’s collaboration will showcase Caesarstone surfaces through interactive activations and practical kitchen designs immersing visitors in the application of the Caesarstone surface.
