CaesarStone and Dwell® Partner in Design Contest -- Dares You to Challenge Your Imagination!

Competition Invites Designers From All Over the Country to Use Their Skills and Knowledge to Find New and Innovative Ways to Design With Quartz Surfaces

VAN NUYS, CA--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - CaesarStone, the pioneer quartz surface manufacturer and Dwell introduced a brand new design competition last weekend at the Dwell on Design® LA Conference + Exhibition. The competition invites designers to create new and exciting things with CaesarStone surfaces.

From June 4 - August 7 designers may enter the competition by submitting designs at www.dwell.com/caesarstone. The entrants just upload a description and design for a sustainable and unique table, the majority made from CaesarStone materials.

"For years designers have used CaesarStone surfaces in beautifully conceived, modern kitchens and baths," said Michela O'Connor Abrams, Dwell President and Publisher. "We are excited to see how designers will use this innovative and sustainable material in new and interesting ways."

When the entry period is over the designs and descriptions will be judged by a panel of Dwell and CaesarStone experts. Ten designers will be chosen from the panel. Those ten will be given the CaesarStone material they need for the project. CaesarStone will commission a fabricator to assist in building the piece. The winning designer will be awarded $5,000 and the two finalists will receive $1,000.

This is the first time the company and publication have partnered for a contest.
