CAESARSTONE & TOM DIXON
Milan Design Week 2016
Four conceptual kitchens inspired by the elements take over the historical Rotonda della Besana delivering an experimental food concept
Leading quartz manufacturer Caesarstone, in collaboration with British designer Tom Dixon, unveil new images from 'The RESTAURANT by Caesarstone & Tom Dixon, a multi-sensory creation consisting of four conceptual kitchens and dining halls inspired by the elements – Earth, Fire, Water and Air. Created using Caesarstone surfaces and designed by Tom Dixon, these are taking over the Milan Children’s Museum (MUBA) in the historical Rotonda della Besana during the 2016 design festival in Milan.
Set within the ideal backdrop of a 17th century Cloister and a deconsecrated church, the installation provides a unique interpretation of how food and surfaces can interact in an exercise of distinctive tastes, smells and visuals within each kitchen. Reflecting the individual element through colour and texture, Caesarstone's surfaces become the ultimate plateau for a creative dining experience that engages all the senses.
For this installation, a food concept curated by Italian food design studio Arabeschi explores the power of nature’s elements in a menu that combines traditional ingredients with modern techniques. Cooking in the kitchens, the chefs are creating a multi-sensory dining experience where food is prepared and served on Tom-Dixon designed Caesarstone surfaces, combining rare, element-inspired cooking techniques with fresh and unique ingredients.
No pre-booking policy. There will be plenty of space to accommodate large groups at any time of the day.
