Caesarstone is proud to present, for the third year in a row, a unique installation designed by an international acclaimed designer, especially for the Milan Design Week.

Movements, by London-based designer Philippe Malouin, is a two part installation situated within the halls of the 18th century Palazzo Serbelloni. It examines the unexpected use of Caesarstone's surface material and process-based design.

The grand hall houses an interactive installation made out of an 8-piece swing-set. The installation juxtaposes the splendour of Palazzo Serbelloni with the minimalist, monolithic language investigated by the designer. Typically associated with carefree, childish activity, swings are here removed from their original playground surroundings and relocated to a grand, historical environment. The installation brings an out-of-context element into play and invites visitors to interact with the material.
The adjacent room hosts a handmade group of planters that documents Philippe Malouin’s process of experimentation with material and technique. While modern and geometric in their design, the collection explores a very different range of techniques, such as traditional inlay and marquetry, as well as the material's versatility and the wide variety of colours in the Caesarstone collection.
