Stone Age Folk, a pavilion that ran during the Milan design week, offered a striking combination of materials, colors, and geometric figures. Though the display's name refers to an earlier era in humanity, perhaps the most apt comparison would be to a carnival. The pavilion indeed features bright primary colors, glass and mirrors that remind one of a funhouse, and even two small carousels.
Stone Age Folk was created by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, who combined 48 variations of quartz. The quartz came from Caesarstone, and though the material is more commonly used on countertops, its combination with stained glass and metal frames added to the playful allure of the pavilion.
At a glance, the glass patterns in the pavilion look unintelligible, but looking more closely, one will begin to notice abstract faces.
