Tom Dixon: A Taste of Innovation

Delicious Design by two Industry Icons.

Tom Dixon: A Taste of Innovation

Tom Dixon and Caesarstone join forces at Milan Design Week. The British product designer and quartz manufacturer team up to give hungry design fanatics a taste of their latest innovations.

 

The Restaurant

Imagine an interactive design installation you can taste, too. That’s what British designer Tom Dixon and luxury quartz manufacturer Caesarstone are aiming for at Milan Design Week with their delicious, high-concept dining experience, THE RESTAURANT by Caesarstone x Tom Dixon. Set in the Rotonda della Besana, a gorgeous baroque church, the restaurant will serve a cutting-edge menu presented by Italian food design studio Arabeschi di Latte. Four sleek quartz kitchens will represent the four elements Earth, Wind, Fire and Air, churning out dishes that incorporate expect techniques like smoking and burning, steaming and freezing and even searing on natural hay. Expect colorful, sleek compositions and delicious preparations in a timeless setting.

The Collection

If that isn’t enough, Tom Dixon will also be debuting his latest collection – “Materiality” – at THE RESTAURANT by Caesarstone x Tom Dixon, comprising lamps, furniture and decorative objects meant to showcase the raw materials they are drawn from - materials like marble, wood, glass and iron that have made Dixon’s products some of the most coveted in the UK and worldwide. These are objects like the geometric, art deco-inspired light fixture ‘Curve’, meant to be a study in thin sheet, etched metal precision, or ‘Flask Oil’, three pendant lights meant to pay homage to the elegance of chemists’ flasks. Interspersed with these is a set of flat-pack, DIY furniture that goes far beyond Ikea, proving that furniture you build yourself doesn’t have to look – or be – cheap.
