Caesarstone’s collaboration with renowned Japanese design studio Nendo was unveiled and on show over the weekend at the Interior Design Show in Toronto.

Stone Garden is an installation of 222 table-like elements made out of seven different pebble-shaped quartz surfaces and nine different stone colours, each supported by a simple metal rod and secured by an overlapping design. The elements are clustered together to form a seemingly floating landscape. The serene environment created at the central lounge area of the IDS proved popular with visitors. 

The simplicity of the design reflects the minimalistic approach that Nendo is known for, while exhibiting the exceptional quality, functionality and creativity of Caesarstone. Like the different shapes, depths and directions of overlaps forming this installation, Caesarstone’s versatile surface designs can complement any space. 

Says Oki Sato, founder and chief designer of Nendo, “The installation explores the boundary between ‘furniture’ and ‘non-furniture.' Tables that aren’t quite tables form a cluster, creating a new kind of ground surface like a garden floating in the universe, far beyond the scale of individual tables. The unique variety and quality of natural colours and textures of the Caesarstone surfaces are perfect to be arranged in a composition like the stylized landscape of a Japanese rock garden.”  

This latest collaboration reconfirms Caesarstone’s position as a leading platform for cutting-edge design, whilst effortlessly displaying the brand’s beauty and functionality.
