Caesarstone Partners with Pratt Institute to Create “Future Kitchen”
Caesarstone will bring the “Future Kitchen” to life with help from students of the industrial design department at the Pratt Institute. The final design will be produced by Caesarstone and exhibited at WantedDesign Manhattan during NYCXDesign in May.
“We believe there is no better way to see what the future kitchens will look like than through the eyes of the younger generations,” said Nick Harris, vice president of Marketing at Caesarstone US. “Caesarstone is proud to partner with such a reputable institution, and we look forward to unveiling the kitchen.”
Under the guidance of New York based architect and designer Marc Thorpe, the students will research aspects of designing the Future Kitchen in relation to issues such as smaller spaces, changes in food consumption, waste disposal, water conservation, new kitchen technology, and the transforming role of the kitchen.
“In partnership with Caesarstone, we wanted to explore how the use of the kitchen will evolve along with society over time,” said Marc Thorpe, visiting assistant professor of Industrial Design at PRATT and founder of Marc Thorpe Design. “Not only in its aesthetic appeal, but also in terms of functionality as a whole. We have found that Caesarstone will stand the test of time and look forward to showcasing the students’ final design at WantedDesign."
