ENHANCE ANY SPACE WITH A SKYLIGHT

Adding a skylight enhances any space, making it lighter, brighter and feel more comfortable. The effect that natural light has on you is well documented. We spend 90 per cent of our time indoors, where the air quality is three to fives times worse than outdoors. A skylight gives you more access to natural light and fresh air to create a healthier, safer indoor environment. And it saves you money! Shown here, before and after.

The 2019 collaboration focuses on the thoughtfulness we should have in our kitchens, whether in meal preparation or conversation shared with guests. This will be represented through the journey of the seed. The installation will take visitors on a sensory experience through memories, human connection, happiness and the environment. The honeycomb-like exhibit will focus on generating stimulation from all sensory receptors as visitors travel their path eliminating external noise and disruption and imagining themselves as a seed and connecting back to the earth.

This collaboration will showcase Caesarstone surfaces through interactive activations and practical kitchen implications immersing visitors in the application of the Caesarstone surface.
