Quartz specialist Caesarstone recently teamed up with Snarkitecture to create an immersive installation called Altered States for Milan Design Week 2018. The duo took over the historic Palazzo dell’Ufficio Elettorale di Porta Romana and transformed a showroom into a spellbinding amphitheater. Skeletal basins wrapped in “Vanilla Noir”, “Alpine Mist” and “White Attica” shades surround a baroque kitchen island which acts as the centerpiece of the presentation. Lastly, the elements of ice, water, and steam are present throughout the installation such as the dripping water from the kitchen island’s faucet seeping into a giant ball of ice.

“Our aim for the Milan version of Altered States is to use ice, wate, and steam to create a mesmerizing collective experience around a kitchen island that has been designed around these simple elements. We took Caesarstone surfaces and turned them into something voluminous and engaging, further highlighting the strength and flexibility of the material. We look forward to inviting visitors to an incredible site in Milan, to explore, and interact within an unexpected and memorable environment,” said Snarkitecture to designboom.

Altered states is currently open to the public until April 21. Head over to Snarkitecture’s official website to learn more. In other Milan Design Week 2018 news, acclaimed American artist Phillip K Smith III built a sprawling Open Sky mirror installation at the 16th-century Palazzo Isimbardi.
