Raw-Edges investigates the interaction between different sizes, materials, colours and textures within the interior space. Inspiration is drawn from Caesarstone’s Classico collection and in particular from its 2014 Supernatural designs, whose countertops star as the focal point of Islands.

The surfaces’ strength, durability, textures and natural looking designs complement the different materials from which the separate units are made, such as reclaimed wood, terracotta, glass and other materials found in a domestic environment. The design celebrates the daily function, origin and importance of the units which are commonly hidden away behind a unified façade.

Raw-Edges founders Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay describe Islands as: “a great opportunity to experiment with everyday areas like kitchens and bathrooms. We always strive towards the alternative, the humoristic and always question the traditional approach to design.

If in a common kitchen the surface is only a top layer that covers the kitchen units, here we would like to propose the surface as the core of the kitchen which holds the different elements together in quite an unexpected way.

Eli Feiglin, VP of marketing at Caesarstone remarks: “Caesarstone is continuously seeking new and creative ways in which to reaffirm its position as a globaltrendsetter and leader in the industry. We are proud to work with a designer who rethinks the domestic environment, explores the surfaces’ unique properties and who may enhance them with a creative exploration of colours and materials.
