CaesarStone® quartz surfaces were part of “Fine Living: 2026,” a live/work lifestyle installation of L.A. DesignWeek™ during NeoCon® West, which took place from March 27 to 28. Produced by L.A. Mart® Design Center and Balcony Media'sLA ArchitectandLA Insidemagazines, “Fine Living: 2026” was designed by the four-time National AIA award-winning architectural firm of Tighe Architecture, located in Los Angeles. A boutique design show, NeoCon West features new materials and innovative products in applied design settings.

Encompassing 1,300 square feet within the L.A. Mart/NeoCon West second-floor exhibit hall, “Fine Living: 2026” was conceived as an exploration of how design, technology and new product innovations - coupled with “person-centered” design concepts - address the transforming individual, occupational and recreational needs and desires of the 21st century homeowner.

Patrick Tighe, principal of Tighe Architecture, chose to incorporate CaesarStone into the space with an alternative application as opposed to a countertop. Visitors to the installation looked upwards to see CaesarStone extending as a continuous single piece of quartz material over the entire lounge/tech center, uniting all three purpose-driven spaces.

“Being part of the 'Fine Living: 2026' project has been a remarkable experience,” said Arik Tendler, president of CaesarStone. “We've thoroughly enjoyed witnessing Patrick Tighe's creative design process and his use of CaesarStone.”
