The Spanish multinational will consolidate its position on the American market with the presentation of its latest collections at KBIS’19, the leading kitchen and bathroom industry show in the U.S.
One of the new pieces from the firm is Crater CC296, a sculpture of cosmic inspiration designed by the international artist Arik Levy.
Minds over matter. With this premise, COMPAC again challenges all creative frontiers with Crater CC296, a new sculptural, collectible work designed by the versatile artist Arik Levy, which seeks to alter viewers’ perceptions of movement and forms. This sculpture will be unveiled at the KBIS 2019 show, one of the main international events for the kitchen and bathroom industry, scheduled in Las Vegas from 19 to 21 February.
For yet another year, the COMPAC booth at KBIS will be serving to strengthen the position of this Spanish company in the American market, where it already has offices in numerous states. The COMPAC booth was designed as a reference point for industry professionals – architects, interior designers, decorators and distributors – wishing to gain inspiration from the brand’s creative possibilities and familiarize themselves with the versatility of the main materials, technological marble and quartz, which are ideally suited to all kinds of technical application.
Crater CC296, the sculpture that the brand will present at the show, is the result of an ongoing collaboration initiative between COMPAC and Levy, who also created the Ice of Genesis series, the impressive Quartzrock piece and a Kryptonite sculpture for this company based in Valencia, Spain.
The initiative was born out of a creative synergy promoting the concept of unique designs based on the plasticity and versatility of COMPAC materials. Crater CC296, a structure weighing 800kg (1764 lbs) inspired by a cosmos in which mind dominates matter, is a truly unique and versatile piece created to represent the search for new ethereal landscapes. It is also the fruit of research into hitherto unexplored surfaces and materials.
In the words of its author, « the crater represents the nature of another planet. Its vertices create an endless visual formation, in which the eye completes the non-visible parts of its surface. This piece not only offers a new geometry for our vision, but also a colorful structure in which great kinetic energy is on show without the need for real movement« .
Impact, imprint and brand
The COMPAC exhibition area for KBIS 2019 is expressly designed for this occasion, with three different « experience areas » connected by a common thread: reach beyond known space, and travel through a new COMPAC reality until you find inspiration. Just like the brand does in every one of the company’s collections.
The exhibition of Levy’s Crater work will dominate the central area of the booth with its avant-garde aesthetics. This will be the epicenter of the COMPAC show for visitors. The piece will be surrounded by spectacular staging, with a making-of video and a play of lights that will complement the entire sensory experience. This central area will also have a presentation of the Ice Green™ design, from the COMPAC Ice of Genesis Premium collection, designed by Arik Levy and inspired by the glacial lakes of the Arctic. Ice Green™ boasts an amazing transparency in its material and beautiful natural tones that make it attractive on all types of surfaces.
Last but not least, the COMPAC space at KBIS will offer a work area for kitchen and bathroom professionals, who thanks to the firm’s expert staff, will explore the infinite creative possibilities of COMPAC materials and their applications in all types of areas, including the art world and the Contract division.
