Israel Revealed // Wallpepar* & Caesarstone
This month's issue of Wallpaper* includes a copy of Israel Revealed, a special supplement on Israeli design, architecture and style, produced in association with high-end Israeli quartz surface manufacturer Caesarstone. As a leading supplier of vanities, wall cladding and flooring to both residential and commercial clients and, increasingly, a powerhouse in the design world, Caesarstone now sells its product in over 50 countries worldwide. With an eye for young talent, the company also works with designers, curators, architects and fabricators to create one-off quartz-stone sculptures, furnishings, events and wall art. In 2014, Wallpaper* worked with Caesarstone on a piece for our annual Handmade exhibition at Milan’s Salone del Mobile, and it also wowed us with its outstanding collaboration with young design duo Raw-Edges, shown at the same fair. So when Wallpaper* was looking for a partner for our special Bespoke project, Caesarstone was the perfect fit. To celebrate the launch of this exciting supplement, we will be hosting a party on 18 December in Tel Aviv. Here we present interviews with the current crop of gifted architects and interior designers that are shaping the state of Israel’s new skyline with a brave, bold vision while continuing to explore the situated modernist style and adapting modern trends to the country’s cultural, climatic and local traditions.
