In celebration of the launch of Caesarstone's three new colours for 2017, we welcomed the industry's top architects, interior designers, kitchen designers, foodies and the media to an unforgettable food experience. Inspired by the three new colours, Rugged Concrete, Montblanc and Moorland Fog, Caesarstone partnered with Italian food architect Francesca Sarti from Arabeschi de Latte to bring the new palette to life. With the assistance of Hannerie Visser and her team at Studio H, guests were taken on an interactive journey through a tasteful playground for grown-ups.

Blurring the line between food and design, Francesca incorporated curious ingredients, textures and flavours to represent each of the new colours.  

"It was the first time we collaborated with three teams on different continents, so the outcome was sure to be incredible and unique as we brought together!" - Hannerie Visser 

 
With a charcoal cocktail in hand, guests experienced three Caesarstone kitchen islands in an extremely interesting and interactive fashion. Guests were encouraged to get involved and have fun with the different, delicious elements.  Here is a taste of the event and how the beautiful new colours were explored.

Rugged Concrete 4033 

The third colour has a raw visual appeal.  Rugged Concrete has a honed finish that adds incredible depth and texture to every interior it adorns.  Inspired by nature's mountainous, dark-grey rock and aged concrete this colour was experienced by guests with amazement.  A charcoal mound of the finest foam bread was accompanied by a delectable ash covered cheese, and guests hammered away at a giant black toffee slab.

Montblanc 5043 

Named after the most famous and highest mountain in the Alps, Montblanc captures the essence of Europe's sweeping, romantic, snow-covered peaks.  With a pale grey background and a flurry of dark-grey veins, the Montblanc island had a sweet selection of chocolate shards, imported pashmak cotton candy, a meringue mountain and liquorice ice cream served in crispy dalmades.

Moorland Fog  6046

Moorland Fog is one of our most vivacious and dramatic designs.  With concentrated, organic veining in shades of elegant taupe and oyster grey, Moorland Fog offers a granite-inspired surface in a neutral palette that encapsulated a mysterious selection of ingredients. Quail eggs cooked in herbs, bay leaf rubbed goats cheese and fried herbs were a few of the visually astounding elements on the Moorland Fog island.

A very unique event for three unique new colours.  We're sure you'll fall in love with them too!  Inspired by the exquisite appearance of natural stone, the new colours are on display at Decorex Cape Town 27 - 30 April 2017 at the CTICC.
