Sculptural Caesarstone Bench by Juergen Mayer


Caesarstone® is proud to announce its sponsorship of a new artwork by Architect Juergen Mayer H., to be unveiled at Galerie EIGEN+ART booth at Art Basel Miami Beach 2013.

Pipapo is a sculptural bench, made of Caesarstone® surface from the Supernatural series, with a natural stone pattern delicately milled to create a three dimensional, lattice-like formation. The work is based on Mayer H.’s long standing investigation, both in architecture and art, of data protection patterns found, for example, on the inside of envelopes sent by government agencies and banks. Their extremely dense optical pattern aims to protect the personal content of letters from indiscretion and to make sensitive data invisible by presenting a sphere of exclusive knowledge.

Pipapo reflects Juergan Mayer H.’s fascination with camouflaged digital design and the interrelations of communicative space. The bench represents an endless pattern field and plays with dimension and form, the exposed and hidden and the material and the immaterial.

The chosen material is Caesarstone® Alpine Mist (5110), a new design part of Caesarstone’s Supernatural series which draws inspiration from the beauty of natural stone while exhibiting the exceptional strength, flexibility and durability inherent in all Caesarstone® surfaces.

Juergen Mayer H. says in regard to the sculpture and his work: “We like to speculate on the potential of new materials for our built environment, to stress the limits of production possibilities and to keep the way we use them free to explore.” “We are extremely proud that Juergen Mayer H. chose Caesarstone® surfaces for Pipapo. This latest collaboration is yet another opportunity for Caesarstone® to evolve, explore and reach new design limits,” says Eli Feiglin, VP of marketing at Caesarstone.
