Raw Edges designed a series of islands using Caesarstone, which have sections removed for slotting in storage units, appliances and accessories.

The movie shows models of these items attached to clasps or tied onto strings and lowered into the holes incorporated into each design.

Sinks, shelves and plants pots are all dropped into their specific places in the units. The animation will be realised as an interactive installation in Milan.

"For the Milan presentation we want to further-explore the concept of the sliding of objects into Caesarstone Islands," said Raw Edges founders Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay.

"The focus will be on the kitchen, which will be set as a working station - a stage for performing cooking."

The full Islands range includes units for the kitchen and bathroom, as well as sideboards and a ping pong table.

Following a preview of the products at the Interior Design Show in Toronto earlier this year, the installation will be presented at the Palazzo Clerici in Milan's Brera district from 9 to 13 April during the city's annual design week.
