The West Hollywood Design District and Caesarstone, a manufacturer of premium quartz surfaces, unveiled a series of one-of-a-kind studio pieces at DIEM: Design Intersects Everything Made, held on November 8 at the Wall Street Gallery in West Hollywood, Calif.

The custom pieces were designed by four of the district’s most acclaimed designers and showrooms: Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Phyllis Morris, Robert Kuo and DSI Entertainment Systems. The designers were given the Caesarstone color of their choice, and challenged to design a unique, never-before-seen furniture item.

“Caesarstone remains committed to the design community both in the United States and around the world,” says Sagi Cohen, CEO of Caesarstone US. “The creativity that the designers put into these pieces is amazing and I think the community will be very impressed with the unique applications of Caesarstone.”

Piece: Accordion Console
Designer: Jamie Adler, brand director for Circa by Phyllis Morris 

The Accordion Console is a fashion-inspired furniture piece created with Caesarstone’s Black Crocodile embossed surface, combined with Phyllis Morris’ signature silver leaf. Adler’s inspiration stems from the unique crocodile texture of the Caesarstone surface and the fashion component of crocodile accessorized on a beautiful dress.

The quartz is inset among the ‘accordion folds’ of carved wood; the console also incorporates a black underglaze to create a finish that is edgy and modern.

Piece: Jie Rectangular Dining Table
Designer: Robert Kuo

This rectangular dining table was inspired by Jie, meaning ‘knots’ in Chinese, which symbolizes harmony and unification in Chinese culture. The table’s top is made of Caesarstone’s Espresso quartz countertop. The base of the dining table is hand repoussé copper with an antique copper finish, making this furniture item truly unique.

Repoussé is the traditional art of hand-hammering decorative relief onto sheet metal. The form and design is achieved by working on both sides of the sheet metal. Chase work is often used in combination with repoussé for accentuating and refining the design. The overall design of the dining table embodies form, function and simplicity.

Piece: Chevron Coffee Table
Designer: Martyn Lawrence Bullard

International designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard is known for his eclectic and stylish interiors, mixing period and ethnic pieces into modern environments. This one-of-a-kind coffee table is no exception. Inspired by the shapes and palates of great Italian furniture makers of the 1960s and ‘70s, this piece exemplifies a strong, graphic approach to design.

The combination of the inlaid chevron design on top of the solid cube of Caesarstone quartz gives the design a strong presence. Bullard strategically chose a black and white combination, one of this year’s hottest design trends, for a bold statement.

Piece: High Performance Loudspeaker
Designers: Adam Paper of DSI Entertainment, a VIA International company; Brian Barr, CEO of CAT

DSI Entertainment Systems has collaborated with CAT (California Audio Technology) to create a pair of ultra-high performance freestanding loudspeakers, which are the only speakers in the world made mostly from Caesarstone. The piece, inspired by architects, designers, home builders and audio/video installation specialists, utilizes red and white Caesarstone, aluminum, steel and copper.
