Want to know which kitchen surfaces are in? Caesarstone reveals its findings in its 2019 Kitchen Trends report, so check out the latest styles and the influences behind them..
To stay ahead of the curve, for its annual trend book 2019, Caesarstone has worked with its long term partner, Li Edelkoort, the renowned design and fashion trend guru.
Its report, Form Follows Food, explores the interaction between material, design and food and how they inspire one another – and ultimately, the kitchen space.
The key themes and ideas are reflected in the work of three young designers, illustrated through food. Read on to discover their findings and the top line on the key influences in kitchen surface design.
The decayed glory of our industrial areas and their stark structures has been influencing design in general, including the design of food. There is an inherent beauty found in rawness and sturdy materials, reflecting the authentic textures of manufacturing, such as oxidised steel, poured plaster, sifted sand, piled fractions and fresh concrete. These industrial elements have been gentrified and are now reaching our homes.
The return of marble has triggered a return to classical inspirations that follow form and function. A perfect way of incorporating history and nature into our interiors. The veined texture trickles down into food design through a range of ‘marbled’ foods and desserts, including blue cheese, fresh produce and even colourful meringues with a marble-like appearance.
In the home, products are finished with brass to bring an antique quality to the table while food is curated to complement our fascination with marbling.
