Raw Edges Milan

​Living on the Edge - Caesarstone ‘Islands’ at Fuori Salone 2014 in Milan

Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay are the designers behind the scenes of the acclaimed Raw Edges Design Studio from London, bringing creativity and innovation to the international design scene.

Their designs may look familiar to you, and it's no surprise - even if you haven't yet heard their names, it's very likely that you've seen one of their many products in international expos and magazines, or even in top design stores. Raw Edges design studio, the creators of 'Islands' – a new collaboration with Caesarstone - have managed to do the impossible by creating a prestigious body of work in their eight years of existence. They have designed for Cappellini, Established & Sons, Moroso, Kvadrat, Stella McCartney, Arco, Mutina, Lema and more, and their many works have been showcased in museums and exhibited in expos in Milan, London, Paris and New York.

Raw Edges is a collaboration between Mer and Alkalay that started after many years of sharing life, thoughts and ideas. They met while studying together in the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, after which they studied MAs at the Royal College of Arts in London. At this point, the decision to work together came naturally to them.

'Islands' is yet another link in the chain of Raw Edges' surprising yet functional creations, offering a new outlook on
interior design, specifically of the kitchen, by using Caesarstone surfaces as a key element in the heart of the home;
Cabinets, apparatus and storage areas, traditionally resting on top and around the surface in the kitchen, have organically assimilated into newly assigned designation spaces in 'Islands'. The interactive installation, focusing on the many pleasures of wining and dining, exhibited at the Milan Design Week, April 8-13, 2014​
