Collaborations with designers
On the occasion of KBIS, the company has teamed up with the Italian architect and designer Elisa Ossino to create a piece that shows the versatility terrazzo. Ossino has designed an outdoor countertop, which she called RHEA, whose shapes evoke the volumes of classicism. The piece, sculpted from a single 992 pounds block creating a sculptural effect, represents the central piece of the composition that the Italian designer has created for the occasion. Exedra is an abstract installation inspired by the meeting rooms in ancient Greece in which the main element is a curved wall in front of which thinkers of the time met.
The commitment to design by means of its continuous collaboration with artists is, without a doubt, one of the differential values of COMPAC, as seen by the new designs that Arik Levy has created for the ICE of Genesis quartz collection. Inspired by the seasons of the year, Levy has conceived four new sketches that invoke summer, autumn, winter and spring reflected in the frozen lakes that served as the initial concept of the collection. This series has been developed with the new IQ Pro technology which will increasingly be incorporated in more and more company projects.
The collection ICE of Genesis collection by Arik Levy was finalist in Best of the Year 2021 awards given by Interior Design.

These are not the only pieces by Levy that are shown at KBIS 2022. The company has recovered for the exhibition the imposing quartz countertop that the artist created in 2017. Quartz Rock is the result of the homage that the artist wanted to pay to quartz with the creation of an 176 pounds worktop made up of 29 pieces of ICE Black Zoom
