Tom Dixon 2016 at Milan's Salone del Mobile.

Tom Dixon and Caesarstone have collaborated to create THE RESTAURANT - a series of extraordinary, sculptural kitchens.

Showcasing all our newest products this pop up eatery is open until Sunday 17th April but if you can't make it to Italy you can still immerse yourself in the space with our virtual 360 degree tour.

Set within the surroundings of the historic Rotonda della Besana, THE RESTAURANT serves a unique menu from four elemental kitchens around the themes of Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Each kitchen and dining hall has a clear aesthetic, materiality and cooking method.

Marble, wood and plastic, glass, iron, brass and copper are the basic building blocks that have defined our products from the outset. This year, we step back and take a look at our biggest influence and an underpinning inspiration for what we do: our materials. Any designer worth their salt should be concerned by the choice of materials, but for us it is a veritable obsession. So we wanted to tell you a bit more about the substances that we shape, the raw matter that we form into these extraordinary objects for everyday use.

The 2016 Milan design festival gives us a chance to present THE RESTAURANT by Caesarstone x Tom Dixon where four monumental composite quartz kitchens will be used to chop, steam, char and freeze a radical menu for the hungry Salone audience.

Each course, conceived by Arabeschi di Latte, will be served in four Tom Dixon dining halls designed to allow the visitor to slow down and enjoy the latest ideas in Materiality, Luminosity and Texture in the Rotonda della Besana - an immense deconsecrated church in the heart of Milan situated in a peaceful cloistered garden.

Throughout the week the audience is encouraged to sit down, slow down and recalibrate in the late Baroque splendour of the Rotonda Della Besana. Visit us and enjoy the tastes, the smells, the furnishing and illumination of Tom Dixon.
