A total investment of €305,000 was necessary for the new “Center” in Lisbon.
It marks a significant step forward for the presence of Cosentino in the central and southern region of Portugal.

Yesterday the Cosentino Group inaugurated a new logistical and commercial facility in the Portuguese capital. This facility features a larger total stock area and greater capacity than the previous “Center”. It also houses a modern showroom where professionals from the sector can expect to receive attentive and personalised support. It offers company clients and consultants in the region an area measuring more than 2,700 m2, with almost 300 m2 set aside as a showroom area. In addition to a modern worktop warehouse, the space includes working kitchen areas and large-scale displays of innovative surfaces by Silestone®, Dekton® and Sensa by Cosentino®, and is topped off by an elegant sink and shower showroom area. The launch event was attended by around 200 people, including the entire Cosentino Lisbon team, clients specialising in marble, kitchen stores, designers, architects, and property developers. Representing the multinational company and presiding over the event were the Lisbon Center Manager, Luis Toscano, and the Sales Director for Iberia, Eduardo Martínez-Cosentino Ramos.

 “This new Center reflects Cosentino’s strong commitment to the Portuguese market. We arrived here 12 years ago and, since then, our market shares have only increased. There is currently a positive economic climate in the country, which is now growing at an above-average rate for the European Union after having overcome a brutal period of recession. As always, at Cosentino we have adapted to each situation thanks to our commitment to ongoing development and to being a benchmark for the entire sector”, says Eduardo Martínez-Cosentino Ramos, the Cosentino Group Sales Director for Iberia.

 
In the mind of Luis Toscano, Manager of the Cosentino Center Lisbon, “it was necessary to offer our clients an improved, modernised and working facility, which will help us all move forward and boost the sector. We want to breathe new life into the Cosentino Center Lisbon and for it to be seen as a new space that can be used as a training centre for clients, collaborators, decorators, consultants and/or architects.”

Susana Díaz made a whistle-stop tour of the company’s two million square metre Industrial Park – one of Spain’s largest manufacturing and logistics facilities. The reason for the President’s visit was to praise the company’s widely-recognised commitment to innovation and, in particular, its emphasis on training and education policies. Embodying these two areas of focus is Cosentino’s spectacular new in-house training centre, the newly-inaugurated “Brainstone”. This facility, which took centre-stage for the President’s visit to the Industrial Park, covers an area of 1,200 square metres and is located above the natural stone warehouse, within the company’s Logistics Centre in the park. The training centre caters for Cosentino’s employees based in Cantoria and comprises five classrooms of varying sizes that can host a total of 140 people at the same time. In addition to the training centre, the tour also made a stop at the Dekton® factory. The visit finally concluded with President Díaz signing the Cosentino visitor book in the presence of Francisco Martínez-Cosentino, Group President.
“It has been an honour to show President Susana Díaz around our facilities in Cantoria, in particular our Brainstone latest training project, which is the ultimate representation of our commitment to innovation and continuous development. Without a doubt, our employees are the key factor in our success and our aim is to provide them with the best possible tools, thereby generating a culture of continuous and qualified learning. We are also proud to have succeeded in generating quality jobs and to have run internships and professional training programmes every year with the invaluable support of the Junta”, commented Francisco Martínez-Cosentino. Susana Díaz, President of the Junta de Andalucía, stated she is  proud of “this company which is a worldwide reference. The record export data we have known today would not be possible without the push of the natural stone industry and the push of companies like Cosentino. This is possible thanks to Cosentino’s compromise with  environment, with the social responsibility, with education and with employment. Cosentino’s President and myself have collaborated creating education programs for young people which take place here. The region has made great progress, but there is still much to do. For example,  we have a great digitalization challenge in the near future. Cosentino is an example for this, and I hope they continue to grow and to bring Andalucía brand to the world like they have done until now.”

It is also continuing with its active policy of geographical diversification and the control of its own distribution, consolidating itself as one of the most internationally present Spanish companies around today.

These new facilities will incorporate the former Center’s functions as a full-service warehouse facility and country-wide distribution hub as well as housing the company’s offices in Mexico. In operation since 2007, when Cosentino first established a presence in this country, the Center in Mexico has closed its doors to make way for dramatically modernised facilities that meet the needs of a growing market. Located between the Toluca Valley and Lerma, in the second largest metropolitan area of Mexico State, the infrastructure covers almost 7,000 m2, divided into warehouse, office and showroom areas, and represents an approximate total investment of 940,000 euro (1.1 million USD). The new Center in Mexico demonstrates a clear commitment and investment in this market by the multinational. As well as a warehouse, the new facilities will also function as a true Hub, or logistics centre, for more efficient distribution across the whole country. They join Cosentino’s three other Hubs, in Norfolk and Houston in the United States and in Sydney, Australia. The arrival of the new Center has directly created four new jobs, bringing Cosentino’s headcount in Mexico to 25. For David Benavente, Vice President of Latam Sales for Cosentino Group, “This major investment represents a huge step forward in terms of our presence in Mexico. This is a dynamic country with a thriving tourism industry and, as a result, hospitality and restaurant sector. So, in keeping with our philosophy of continuous adaptation and improvement, we have reorganised our entire structure in order to empower our team and allow us to do business differently. The resulting logistics Hub and distribution centre enable us to provide the best possible service to our distributors across the country.” Thanks to the latest changes, the company has already enjoyed benefits such as extending and improving its inventory of products and solutions for this market, and a single logistics centre for better distribution at a national level. Following the new launch, Cosentino’s forecasts for the Mexican market are predicted to increase from 20% growth in sales (annual average in recent years) to 30% for the next three years.

Cosentino is honored to partner with Traditional Home Magazine as a sponsor the 2018 Showhouse, which raises crucial funds for Southampton Hospital. Mikel Welch, Kate Singer, and Cocobolo Interiors each selected Silestone Iconic White to top the stunning vanities in the bathrooms they designed. A newer hue from the leading quartz brand’s offering, Iconic White quickly became one of the most popular, thanks to its glossy luster and high resistance to stains. The designs of the three spaces in which Silestone Iconic White is featured shows the immense versatility of the hue, as the styles range from sleek to colorful, bold to feminine. Mikel Welch brings his serene, textural approach to this sleek bathroom. Chrome hardware and faucetry accent the neutral palette and organic accents, and Silestone Iconic White provides a fresh pop of brightness to complement the crisp white trim throughout. In this bathroom designed by Cocobolo Interiors, every morning starts with a tropical escape. To offset the wallpaper’s bold, playful aesthetic, the gray vanity topped with Silestone Iconic White offers a calm spot for the eye to rest, while creating cohesion with other white elements in the space.  

The gallery-inspired design of this petite powder room designed by Kate Singer is sure to have guests linger. The Silestone Iconic White vanity top complements the space’s neutral palette, allowing the surrounding art to take center stage.

The new Cosentino Hawaii showroom highlights Cosentino’s international growth and continued expansion in North America and is the first outside of the contiguous United States. “Hawaii has established itself as one of the most unique architecture and design communities in North America,” said Eduardo Cosentino, Executive Vice President of Global Sales for Cosentino Group and CEO of Cosentino North America. “By expanding our presence with the new Hawaii showroom, we’ll ensure the city’s preeminent architects and designers have instant access to our latest products and expertise that underscores our firm commitment to the U.S. market. Cosentino hosted a traditional Hawaiian ceremony and dance performance to celebrate the showroom’s opening. For the ceremony, the Hawaiian “Kahu”, or priest, Kahu Shon Kihewa, conducted various traditional blessings and cleansings. The Hawaiian blessing ceremony dates back to ancient Hawaiian culture and is based on traditional Hawaiian belief in taboos, or “Kapu”, that can be placed on a physical space. During a blessing ceremony a Kahu clears any curses or negative energy that might have been placed on a space, so the new occupants may move forward with a clean slate. Entertainment after the ceremony included various dances from Hawaii and the South Pacific. These dances have been traditionally performed to honor Hawaiian royalty and today are performed as a showing of respect and honor for special guests. Dances performed included the Hula, the Tahitian and the Siva Afi.

DeKauri by Daniel Germani was also named a finalist in the Residential Furniture category. This award from Architizer, the world’s leading online architecture database, further demonstrates Cosentino’s leadership in both architecture and design innovation within in the surfacing industry. Entries to the Architizer A+ Awards came from over 100 countries and were judged by over 400 distinguished luminaries and thought leaders in the architecture and design space. The Industrial Collection’s win in the Popular Choice category truly represents the best of architecture worldwide. Designed in collaboration with leading architect and designer Daniel Germani, the Industrial Collection, comprised of Trilium, Orix, Nilium and Radium, is intended to be both relaxed and modern through its rough, expressive aesthetic, reestablishing concrete, metal and brick as material protagonists in modern design. To create a rich design with varied subtle effects, the Industrial collection has a never before seen matte-gloss finish. Unlike the materials that sparked the Industrial Collection’s design, Dekton is incredibly smooth to the touch and impervious to the elements, including scratches, stains, UV rays and temperature shock. Its ultra-durable performance makes it ideal solution for an array of indoor and outdoor applications, including countertops, facades, cladding, flooring, stairs and more. The Industrial Collection embodies Cosentino’s continued commitment to sustainability, leading the industry with the most advanced and sustainable manufacturing practices. Eighty percent of the content used to make two of the collection’s four colors (Trilium and Radium) comes from excess materials from the Dekton manufacturing process. Cosentino’s investment in Research and Development has also made it possible to recycle 98 percent of water used, maintain clean air, support energy efficiency, and responsibly manage waste disposal.

For the sum of €35 million, this transaction highlights BBVA's commitment to innovation, as well as to the financial security and competence of the multinational company based in Almeria. The flexible loan or 'flexible term loan' ("FTL") is a corporate financing product launched by BBVA that combines the main advantages of a loan and a credit facility at the company’s discretion once the previously agreed conditions have been met. Through this product, the client has the possibility of converting the outstanding balance, the money owed under that loan, into a credit facility after a certain percentage of capital has been repaid, plus an initially agreed conversion fee. With a consolidated turnover of €901 million last year, and one of the most internationalised Spanish companies with more than 90% of its revenue outside Spain, Cosentino is characterised by its cross-cutting policy for innovation and business sustainability. Within the framework of this innovative renovation, the multinational company has opted for a pioneering product that contributes to its financial security, following the lines of other singular diversification measures such as the loan granted by the European Investment Bank (EIB) at the end of 2016.   The Almeria-based multinational company wanted to highlight the flexibility of the loan provided by BBVA. The FTL not only meets its financing needs but also allows the company to convert a direct loan into a line of credit at its own discretion, based on any future needs arising. This operation is part of Cosentino’s new external financing plan for the next seven years, which will see the implementation of more than €300 million within various national and international companies. This financing plan seeks to ensure the company's investment rate in the medium-term whilst always remaining cautious and in control of debt, as well as supplementing the reinvestment of company profits.

Download the Cosentino 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility Report

Santiago Alfonso, Cosentino Group Vice-President of Marketing and Communications: “Spain presented an ambitious project that requires a contribution from every person and institution. Cosentino is aware that its leadership also implies the obligation of paving the way towards sustainability. Cosentino will be able to drive the implementation of this agenda by adding our performance in strategic goals for our activity, such as health (SDG 3), quality education (SDG 4), decent work (SDG 8), innovation (SDG 9) and responsible production (SDG 12)."

Sustainable innovation towards the circular economy

Cosentino continues to place its faith in innovation (SDG 9) as an essential driver of sustainable development. During 2017, investment in RD&I was increased by 30% over 2016 levels, reaching 22.5 million euros. Part of this innovation effort has been focused on putting into practice Cosentino’s undertaking for sustainable production and the circular economy, in line with its strategic commitment to SDG 12, responsible consumption and production. Environmentally friendly products, which use waste from the production process in their composition, are an example of this commitment. In 2017, Cosentino produced 1.2 million square metres of slabs using reclaimed material, accounting for 19% of total production, compared to 9% in 2016. In this regard, Cosentino has once again recently used innovation in order to progress towards a model of circular economy. On 16 July, the company announced the imminent opening of its own waste management facility (WMF).

Increasing employment, diversity and safety the keys to success

The multinational continues to place its faith in the sustained growth in employment that has characterised recent years. The company reached a figure of 3,975 employees in 2017. Additionally, Cosentino continues to advance in its efforts to bring diversity and equality to its workforce. The proportion of women in executive positions rose to 14.75% in 2017, deepening the company’s commitment to gender equality set out in SDG 5 of the 2030 Agenda. Cosentino is committed to quality employment (SDG 8), with special attention to the creation of safe workplaces for the entire value chain. The company was able to reduce the accident rates of all its workplaces in Iberia, and in its processing workshops in the United States. Only last year, Cosentino invested more than 3 million euros on safety systems for its US facilities, in addition to the 26.5 million euros invested over the last five years, mainly in the measures applied to its production and transformation facilities in Almería, Brazil and the United States.

Commitment to talent and quality education

Cosentino’s commitment to quality education (SDG 4) is put into practice mainly through the Eduarda Justo Foundation, set up in 2006 to promote economic, social, educational and cultural development in Cosentino’s local area. The multinational also sets store by the potential of art and culture to develop talent in people. A 2017 landmark was Cosentino’s collaboration on the creation of the first museum dedicated to the Spanish photographer, Almería native Carlos Pérez Siquier. As part of its social commitment for the well-being of the inhabitants of the company’s local area, Cosentino increased its donations to social initiatives being implemented in Spain, Brazil and the United States by 31%. A total of 1.3 million euros was given in donations.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

It was signed by 193 countries at the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015. Its 17 SDGs and 169 targets are combined with the Addis Ababa Action Agenda for finance and development and the Paris Agreement on climate change to urge global action that allows us to meet the social, economic, political and environmental challenges we face as a society.

With a total surface area exceeding 65 hectares and an investment of more than 2 million euros, this complex will treat and optimise the waste produced by the Almeria-based multinational company’s production processes. The facility includes two enclosures for the reception and treatment of both inert and non-hazardous waste, respectively, according to the provisions of the environmental authorisation AAI/AL/116 of 7 July 2017 that regulates its operations. These enclosures, which cover close to 30 hectares of the total extension of the facility, can handle up to 200,000 tonnes of waste each year, and the project envisages new enlargement stages for the coming years. In this way, the multinational continues to innovate, environmentally in this case, as part of its firm commitment to the circular economy. This project, the first of its kind in the field of material reutilisation, seeks to optimise the value of waste from Cosentino Group production processes. The aim is to turn it into quality raw material with the technical, economic conditions and health and safety standards that allow them to be reintroduced into the company’s own production cycle, or into the activities of different industrial sectors. The facility was presented today coinciding with the visit by the environment minister of the regional government of Andalusia, José Fiscal, to Cosentino Group’s headquarters. Fiscal was given a lengthy tour of the company’s industrial park in Cantoria, accompanied by its president, Francisco Martínez Cosentino and staff from the Environment Department, where special attention was given to visiting the Dekton® factory and the waste management facility. After the ministerial visit, an informative meeting was held by the Europa Press agency on the circular economy. Under the heading ‘Opportunities for the Circular Economy in Andalusia: the Economy of the Avoidable, the event included the presence of Bruno Sauer, president of the Green Building Council of Spain; Juan José Amate, general manager of Sostenibilidad a Medida; and Álvaro de la Haza, executive vice-president of Cosentino Group. The event was closed by the minister José Fiscal, whose speech expressed his commitment to ‘a region which has a strong commitment with recycling and valorization, as the Integral Plan of Waste Management shows, and, to promote in Andalusia, as well as Cosentino does in the private sector, a true circular economy and higher respect for the environment’.

Gergiev was accompanied by the Mariinsky Theatre Symphony Orchestra of Saint Petersburg, one of Russia’s oldest and most accomplished musical ensembles, and the Armenian violinist Sergey Khachatryan. On his second appearance at the festival, Valery Gergiev offered an extraordinary spectacle that showcased the best in Russian symphonic music, and commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War. Featured were two of the greats of this twentieth-century genre: Sergei Prokofiev, with his Classical Symphony, and Dmitri Shostakovich, with his Violin Concerto – with the incredible Sergey Khachatryan as soloist – and Symphony No. 12 ‘The Year 1917’. The audience in the Palace of Charles V was thrilled by a sublime performance. As the sponsor, Cosentino was represented by the Vice President of Communications and Marketing, Santiago Alfonso, who was in turn accompanied by Cosentino architects and collaborators from Madrid and Barcelona. The multinational Cosentino believes that culture should be accessible to everybody owing to its ability to inspire and enhance the creativity of people. And this is why, for the fourth consecutive year, the Almería-based company has been collaborating with the most important classical musical festival in Andalusia and one of the world’s most prestigious and renowned cultural events.

The two trends defining this important launch are the Cement trend and Natural trend. These new colours were unveiled this year at Milan Design Week 2018, where they were warmly welcomed and enthusiastically accepted by professionals and end consumers alike.   "Cement Trend" Cosentino has managed to reinterpret the different grey and industrial tones that make up building materials such as cement and concrete, and whose presence in avant-garde and contemporary design grows every day. This trend includes the new Laos, Soke, Kreta and Lunar colours from the Dekton® Industrial Collection, and the Brooklyn and Silver Lake colours from the Silestone® Loft Series. "Natural Trend"  Cosentino continues to bet on the beauty of the natural, the beauty of the eternal, the beauty given to us by the most well-known and requested marbles asked for by lovers of natural stone. Within this trend, we find the new Vera and Kira colours from Dekton®, as well as the new classics Pearl Jasmine, Eternal Marfil and Desert Silver from the Silestone® Eternal Collection.  

Dekton® by Cosentino

"New Dekton® Industrial colours" Cosentino is developing four matte colour offerings to expand the successful Industrial collection of the ultracompact surface Dekton®. Laos, Soke, Kreta and Lunar are the names given to the new Dekton® Industrial colours; with a calm, detailed aesthetic, they reinterpret different cement finishes.   "Vera and Kira" With nature and its pure aesthetic as the real protagonist, Cosentino is launching these two new colours to form part of the Dekton® Natural Collection. Vera and Kira are inspired by the elegant, versatile appearance of the popular Gris Pulpis marble, and the difference between the two lies in their base tone.  

Silestone® by Cosentino

"Silestone® Loft Series" Cosentino is presenting a new, sophisticated collection of two colours that offers a fresh and contemporary take on the industrial and architectural look of concrete and cement. The Silestone® Loft Series is made up of Brooklyn and Silver Lake, two classic colours where history and the avant-garde meet.   "Silestone® Eternal expansion" Cosentino is expanding the successful Silestone® Eternal collection, which pays faithful tribute to history’s most popular marbles. The new colours with an authentic natural, marbled aesthetic, which they fuse with the technology, innovation, quality and functionality of Silestone®.

In partnership with the Argentinian designer and architect Daniel Germani, Cosentino continues to align its innovation and research with global trends and creates new benchmarks at the highest level of aesthetics. Laos, Soke, Kreta and Lunar are the new Dekton® Industrial colours, which share a calm, careful aesthetic: "Laos" Inspired by industrial materials, Laos is a transgressive reinterpretation of cement. Dark in colour and with a weathered structure, Laos defines the personality of the Industrial range, reinterpreting it and showing its most innovative side. Its aesthetic is based on a matte finish with grey veining and golden tones, ideal for the most avant-garde settings.   "Soke" With a careful, distinguished look, Soke is a colour inspired by classic cement flooring. Its structure of realistic cracks is subtly integrated into a background full of detail. Grain and base blend to perfection in a range of greys, becoming a versatile colour for any application.   "Kreta" Inspired by classic cement flooring, Kreta appears with a calm structure. Its design is uniform and restrained, though areas of dark and light appear at random depending on the density of the grain. Its matte texture and grey colour are an ideal match for any kind of material.   "Lunar" Inspired by industrial aesthetics, Lunar is a reinterpretation of conventional cement. Its smooth structure and white base make the colour Lunar a fashion item. Its pattern and background come together in a balanced, harmonious way, offering a sublime result for modern décor."

Under the names Vera and Kira, these two new colours are sure to succeed thanks to the perfect look that only the purity and spontaneity of natural stone can offer and the functional and mechanical perfection that only the ultracompact surface Dekton® can provide. These two new offerings are inspired by the elegant, versatile appearance of the popular Gris Pulpis marble, distinguished from one another by their base tone. While Vera offers a grey, cement-like colour, Kira’s finish is full of earth tones. Vera and Kira are arriving as part of the Dekton® Natural Collection, a series that reflects Cosentino’s desire to emulate the best of nature, producing a faithful reproduction of the details traced by the hand of millions of years of geological processes.   "Vera" Inspired by the well-known Gris Pulpis, is a colour with brushstrokes of natural stone and cement. Its veined structure and cement-like base make Vera a fusion of the natural and industrial, putting the most elegant elements of both on display. Its grey finish combines with a structure of bright veins that break with the aesthetic of conventional colours. An offering with an architectural bent, designed from functionality and the latest trends.   "Kira" Inspired by natural stone, is a colour that resembles the marble Gris Pulpis in its delicacy and versatility. A random distribution of grey veins of different intensities strike across a chromatic base made from earth tones. Kira is defined by timelessness, striking visuals and plenty of personality thanks to the excellent combination of a smooth matte texture, intense base colour and sharp tracery of veins.

Cities are filled with concrete walls, bridges and structures that preserve their industrial character, and over the years, this aesthetic has crossed over into interior design and architecture to become a firm choice for high-quality design. Silestone® Loft Series is the result of this trend, and offers designs inspired by concrete and cement, technically improved to offer the unrivalled mechanical properties only found with Silestone®. In addition to its very low liquid absorption, Silestone® is a highly resistant material to stains, impacts and scratching. Silestone® Loft Series is presented in two initial colours: Brooklyn and Silver Lake. "Brooklyn" Brooklyn offers an intense grey finish replete with totally random contrasts and effects. Brooklyn was designed to be the absolute showpiece of a space, offering innovative design for the market in quartz surfaces. It features a striking personality, a rustic and industrial character, and pure and elegant beauty.   "Silver Lake" Silver lake is a unique, original and daring colour with loads of personality. Its elegant white background is superimposed with soft and elegant gradations of grey, to give any space with a strong and stylish identity.   The significant innovation behind the Silestone® Loft Series is the consequence of months of hard work by the Cosentino R&D department. As a result, Loft Series also comes with a new Silestone® raw texture, in keeping with the industrial look of the new collection. Raw masterfully replicates the feel and look of building materials such as cement and concrete, offering a surface that combining relief with a sublime matt finish filled with elegance and subtlety.

This début is thanks to the commercial agreement it signed with Cosentino. With the addition of the port of Almería to its routes, Maersk aims to bring new export opportunities to Spanish companies, in particular those from Almería and the region of Andalucía. The Danish shipping company expects to begin moving goods with Cosentino on 18 June. After these initial shipments, Cosentino will begin operating out of the Port of Almería with Maersk on a weekly basis. To date, the Spanish multinational company - which has been the driving force behind the agreement and the company’s arrival at the port - based the maritime shipping of its goods out of the ports of Algeciras, Valencia and, to a lesser extent, Cartagena. To manage their logistical operations at the Port of Almería, Maersk and Cosentino will work with Ronco & Cía, a company specialising in port services. In addition, the Danish company expects to implement new alternative ways of operating that allow it to increase efficiency along the entire supply chain. The previous work already carried out by Cosentino to optimise ‘round-trip’ operations has contributed to this goal. Jose Antonio Fernández, Cosentino Group Vice-President of Planning and Logistics, notes that ’this represents a major milestone for us. Starting operations from the Port of Almería with Maersk is a very significant leap forward, both qualitatively and quantitatively, and has been made possible by many years of intense management, negotiation and advance planning. This confirms our constant goal of looking for new alternative ways of operating that prioritise effectiveness in the distribution of our products, ensuring the unbroken supply of raw materials and optimising our total costs.PR_Maersk launches operations at the Port of Almeria [post_title] => Maersk launches operations, with Cosentino, at the Port of Almería [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => maersk-launches-operations-with-cosentino-at-the-port-of-almeria [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-06-11 00:00:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-06-11 00:00:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.cosentino.com/maersk-launches-operations-with-cosentino-at-the-port-of-almeria/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Array ( [0] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 71 [name] => News [slug] => news [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 71 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 468 [filter] => raw ) ) WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68700 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2018-06-08 00:00:00 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-06-08 00:00:00 [post_content] => Dekton® has been turned into one of the perfect complements for the new collections created by Skyline Design®, the prestigious Spanish company that has been manufacturing outdoor furniture for custom contract projects since 2001. Dekton® and Skyline Design® are synonymous with innovation and quality, which is superbly reflected in these three collections shown at Milan Design Week 2018.
José Revert, CEO of Skyline Design®: “Dekton® not only adds warmth to our products, which we are unable to find in other materials such as glass or aluminium, but also adds value to them.”
  "Dona" Designed by Belén Burguete, this new collection by Skyline Design® express warmth and comfort, and features a sofa combining an aluminium frame with braided polyester ropes. The rounded forms of the design are both captivating and welcoming. The coffee table that forms part of the set and culminates the delightful setting features a top made from the Dekton® surface in the Aura shade. Its colour, natural beauty and marble-like appearance give the composition additional appeal.   "Bandido" Designed by Sanitago Sevillano, this collection consists of an armchair, sofa and coffee table. The table top is in the resistant Dekton® by Cosentino, a surface in the Kelya shade. Kelya presents an aesthetic based on nature, with a dark background and veining, which combines wonderfully with the woven and upholstered parts of the other pieces. There is a perfect and elegant balance of colours.   "Surabaya Daybed"  Dekton® is incorporated into one of the most iconic pieces made by Skyline Design®, their striking canopied daybeds with spectacular forms that are perfect for outdoor living. More specifically, Dekton® is present in the Surabaya, designed by Santiago Sevilla, used in the original table design that slots into the daybed. The Aura by Dekton® shade provides an exquisite contrast to the aesthetics of the design and the sombre combination of tones and materials around it.

This model has been consolidated over the past years by the company and focuses on the reuse of water in all its production processes, in reduction and in waste recovery. Finally, the model also tries to extend the lifecycle of the products fostering repair, reuse and recycling. Water shortage is driving today innovation to achieve water reuse. In addition, wastewater has become a valuable resource. Cosentino has achieved “zero discharge” of industrial wastewater in its Cantoria (Almeria) production installations. Thanks to an industrial wastewaters supply and treatment closed circuit system, the company finished 2017 with a ratio of 98% reuse of the water employed in its Industrial Park. Cosentino is also pioneering the intelligent recycling of water for irrigation of the wide green areas Cosentino has in its Industrial Park. Last year the company destined 40.500m3, the equivalent of 20 Olympic swimming pools, of the recovered water in the production processes to this use. Among the mentioned green areas, it is important to note another singular project which is the “Green Belt”. A landscape project which completely surrounds Cosentino Industrial Park, which has generated 30.000m2 of new green areas, and the restauration of another 20.000m2 always with native species, in the year 2017. As part of Cosentino’s commitment with water management, the company joined last April “EsAgua” platform, a pioneering initiative at national level whose objective is to position Spanish companies as reference for water footprint.

With this ‘Cosentino City’, the multinational company now has 11 of these innovative, inspirational spaces for designers and architects across the globe. The grand opening took place last night at an exclusive event attended by over 200 people, including a number of company clients and distributors, as well as institutional representatives and members of the important community of designers and architects of the South Florida city. The company was represented by Eduardo Cosentino, EVP of Global Sales and CEO of Cosentino North America; Massimo Ballucchi, Cosentino North America Director of Marketing; and Carolina Almeida, Miami City General Manager. In addition, the event included the performance of Keba Williams, R&B and Soul emerging star from Trinidad and Tobago and based in Miami. With over 300m2 of total floorspace, the Cosentino showroom in Miami is located at the heart of the Miami Design District, a strategic city hub that brings together the main companies and brands related to the world of design and trends. This district, which is currently expanding and experiencing rapid growth, is also home to the main architecture offices in Miami and the state of Florida. Lastly, thanks to its location, Cosentino City Miami can serve not only clients from South Florida, but also cover and work for the Central and South American markets. More than €1.1 million ($1.4 million) were invested in the Miami City showroom, which will offer all the next-generation resources usually found in these Cosentino spaces; these include exhibition and work areas and the latest technology for displaying samples and digital applications, allowing interested trend-setters and professionals to develop all kinds of projects using the company’s products. The Miami ‘Cosentino City’ will also be the first Cosentino building of its type to have a façade made of Dekton® in the colours Trilium and Domoos, the façade forms an integral part of the showroom’s design. Part of the façade can serve as a canvas for graffiti or other types of street art, like Miami’s famouse Wynwood Walls. In fact, last night urban artist Alex Vahan, a graffiti art reference in the city, who formed part of the collective “Miami Syle Graffiti” which in the beginning of the 90s revolutionized urban landscape of Miami, made an impressive mural on the mentioned Dekton® façade.   This facility builds on the foundation of the company’s important arrival in the city which, since the end of last year, has also been home to the head offices of the Group’s subsidiary for the Americas. Similarly, in early 2018, the company sponsored with its Dekton® brand the Miami Open 2018 - the Masters 1000 tournament held at Cayo Vizcaíno - for the first time. With this opening, Cosentino now has 11 innovative showrooms located at the hearts of the world’s main cities; besides Miami, these include Sydney, Singapore, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Montreal, Milan, London, Madrid and Dubai. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BL71f2e2aBY To download press release please click here: PR_Cosentino Group opens in Miami its 11th showroom around the world [post_title] => Cosentino Group opens in Miami its 11th “City Center” showroom around the world [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => cosentino-group-opens-in-miami-its-11th-city-center-showroom-around-the-world [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-05-25 00:00:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-05-25 00:00:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.cosentino.com/cosentino-group-opens-in-miami-its-11th-city-center-showroom-around-the-world/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Array ( [0] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 71 [name] => News [slug] => news [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 71 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 468 [filter] => raw ) ) WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68691 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2018-05-23 00:00:00 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-05-23 00:00:00 [post_content] => At Pier 17 in New York City’s South Street Seaport, top architecture and design professionals from around the world attended the third annual NYCxDesign Awards — an awards program recognizing excellence in design from the hundreds of events that make up NYCxDESIGN 2018.

Set on bronze and stainless-steel legs, ten large Silestone® slabs (in Iconic White, Kensho, Spa Cement and Black Thebes) have been sculpted using numerical control to create a surface that is curved along its entire length. The playing surface and net form part of the same slabs, which were first layered, then sculpted. This magnificent piece of manufacturing carried out by Cuéllar Arquitectura del Mármol.

Under the name ‘APAC Annual Meeting’, the Convention brings together nearly 60 Cosentino clients and distributors from 12 different countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Malaysia, Taiwan and Iran, among others.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Since last Sunday through this coming Wednesday, Cosentino Group, the world leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, is holding this year’s annual Distributors Convention for the Asia-Pacific region (APAC). After holding this event in Cairns - a city in north-eastern Australia - last year, the Cosentino APAC Convention is coming back to Almería in 2018. Cosentino’s central facilities in Cantoria (Almeria, Spain) will serve as the main stage for this event, which yesterday featured various product and strategy presentations, as well as a tour of the Industrial Park and the Mojacar Parador, where the attendees are staying and where various business meetings are being held today. This new annual meeting, headquartered in Almeria, demonstrates the importance of this constantly growing market, where Cosentino’s own presence is continually increasing. For example, in the Oceania region, the company currently has 7 Cosentino Centers (6 in Australia and 1 in New Zealand), as well as Cosentino’s very first City, located in Sydney. To these must also be added the mid-2017 opening of the only Cosentino Hub outside the USA, which is also located in the city of Sydney. In Asia, Cosentino has continually pursued a strategy of proprietary implantation over the last few years. It has now achieved a significant presence, above all through its HQ in Singapore. Since last year, the island nation has been home to a spectacular Center, which plays the role of major logistics warehouse and central Cosentino headquarters for all of Asia. To the Center, we must also add another one of Cosentino’s first City showrooms, likewise located at the heart of Singapore, as well as a logistical operator in Japan and the ‘City Associated’ of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Francisco Martínez-Cosentino, President of Cosentino Group: "It is a pleasure to once again welcome our friends from Asia and Oceania to our home, with more countries represented than ever. The fact that our headquarters is once again hosting this Convention demonstrates the importance we place on this region, with great potential for growth in the coming years; it is also the best way to show our partners important new products and innovations in manufacturing, safety, the environment and the digital transformation that we are currently undertaking.

Cosentino Group and the Marble, Stone and Materials Technology Centre (CTM) are set to launch a nation-wide training programme on accident prevention and encouraging safe, healthy working conditions directed at the natural stone and compact quartz transformation and processing sector this coming May.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_empty_space height="15px"][vc_column_text]

This intensive programme is being promoted by the Stone Cluster, a Spanish industry association of companies involved in natural stone extraction, processing and associated activities. It has been certified by the State Ministry of Energy, Tourism and the Digital Agenda (MINETAD), which is funding the project.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The programme will cover the entire country this coming May, June and July with more than 30 training days, which will be held in nearly every Spanish province. To promote proper accident prevention and worker protection from exposure to chemical substances in stone processing workshops, these training days - which are completely free and include both practical and theoretical material - are directed at owners and workers at stone and compact quartz cutting workshops across all of Spain. Each training session will have a limited number of spots, which will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis until the maximum capacity (20 people) is reached. Attendees will receive an official diploma for completing the training, certified by the Natural Stone Cluster and the State Secretariat for Energy. The training days will also be supervised by the Provincial Subdelegation or Delegation of the relevant Autonomous Community.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="49898" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]This initiative aims to encourage, in a specialised and holistic way, the training of sector workers in compliance with current legislation. In particular, it focuses on the information that must be provided about exposure to chemical substances and potentially carcinogenic agents specified in current legal regulations on occupational health and safety. The programme will also focus on the proper preventive measures to be taken against exposure to dust and respirable crystalline silica. All of this has the final shared goal of increasing the competitiveness of the sector through best practices and cooperation.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]All information: PR_Cosentino Group and the Marble Stone and Maerials Technology Center[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] [post_title] => Cosentino and the Marble, Stone and Materials Technology Centre work together on a national accident prevention training programme for the stone processing industry [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => cosentino-and-the-marble-stone-and-materials-technology-centre-work-together-on-a-national-accident-prevention-training-programme-for-the-stone-processing-industry [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-04-23 00:00:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-04-23 00:00:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.cosentino.com/cosentino-and-the-marble-stone-and-materials-technology-centre-work-together-on-a-national-accident-prevention-training-programme-for-the-stone-processing-industry/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Array ( [0] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 71 [name] => News [slug] => news [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 71 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 468 [filter] => raw ) ) WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68676 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2018-04-22 00:00:00 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-04-22 00:00:00 [post_content] => [vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link="https://youtu.be/UTCnMfLyuTY"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

It offers the excellent technical and aesthetic properties which characterize Dekton® with a new very thin and light format perfect for any covering.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Continuing the “natura” aesthetic, which prevails throughout all the project, Kelya has been the Dekton® selected color. Kelya is a hue that reminds of the functional look and feel of natural stone, with a dark background and a delicate veining that creates an exclusive design. Dekton® Kelya is applied to doors and jardinières, in 4mm thickness; and on the spectacular worktop of the kitchen island, in this ocation in the Dekton® 12mm thickness.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]As part of the Hostelco fair, a new session of Dialogues of Architecture and Gastronomy has been organized by the Silestone Institute. The chef Oriol Castro - Restaurante Disfrutar-, the architect Oliver Franz Schmitz -El Equipo Creativo - and Pilar Navarro -Cosentino Group- have shared a talk about "Disfrutar. the challenge of designing a new restaurant”. The event was moderated by Xavier Torrents from Innova Projects/Gastronomía & Food Service. During the event the speakers explained the ins and outs of the process of creating the Disfrutar, restaurant. From the choice of the premises and the interior design team to the on-site tests of culinary processes, the distribution of interior spaces or the choice of materials.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="49944" img_size="full"][vc_single_image image="49945" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]Oriol Castro commented that the three chefs wanted to transmit the Mediterranean spirit from a vision of its origins, moving away from the traditional image that is always shown. He also stressed the importance of a good understanding with the interior design studio. As a detail of the process, he explained that, before making any important decision, prototypes of the main elements of the restaurant were built to scale, in porexpan and cardboard, to analyse the best sizes and locations.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="49947" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]Oliver Franz explained that, in this project, having very clear ideas and previous planning were essential. He also stressed that materials are the absolute protagonists of this space. Each of them has been chosen to create sensations. For him, it's magic when you go through the space of the bar and see the chefs while they are creating. For Xavier Torrents there are three fundamental aspects in a restaurant: 1) that it captivates you by some concrete feature -such as the open kitchen- 2) that activates your mind 3) celebrates something. For her part Pilar Navarro spoke about how the latest generation materials, such as Dekton, can respond to the technical and aesthetic needs of a restaurant project. In the case of Disfrutar the great brown-coloured bar of Dekton Kadum it is integrated perfectly in the colours of the space and at the same time it does not scratch and endures very high temperatures.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="49950" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]

GANDIABLASCO has signed an agreement of collaboration with the Cosentino group in order to include the exclusive Cosentino ultra-compact Dekton® surface within its collections.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

Both companies have a solid trajectory behind them making them a reference in their respective sectors, with a similar history.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Dekton® is one of its most prestigious Cosentino´s brands. Developed exclusively by the group’s I+D department, the surface is manufactured using Cosentino’s TSP (Particle Sintering Technology), a manufacturing process that involves the application of an accelerated high pressure and high temperature that mimics what nature itself does over the course of millions of years, the time it takes to produce natural stone. The result is a highly resistant material that is practically immune to the absorption of water. In addition it offers excellent colour stability and can withstand any climatic conditions, which makes it ideal for the outdoor furniture that GANDIABLASCO designs and makes.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The refined design and architectural quality of its first collections, manufactured using aluminium profiles combined with polyethylene covered a void in the market at that time and confirmed the international expansion of the business. The quintessential architectural silhouette of their design defines the GANDIABLASCO collections’ personality, together with the idea of including numerous elements within each collection. More than furniture, the company makes original products that are both elegant and hard wearing that combine together to create outdoor ambiences that can be enjoyed in the stylish tradition of the Mediterranean. Since 2017 the brand has set itself a new challenge, the creation of DIABLA, a new outdoor brand with original and ingenious designs sold online. GANDIABLASCO has, over the years, conceived new collections created by national and international architects and designers, as Spaces that allows to enjoy life outdoor all every day of the year.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The agreement signed with the Cosentino group allows it to continue to evolve in order to offer better design together with the most innovative materials on the market.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]GANDIABLASCO_GRUPO COSENTINO_en[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] [post_title] => The Cosentino Group and GandiaBlasco join forces [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => the-cosentino-group-and-gandiablasco-join-forces [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-04-04 00:00:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-04-04 00:00:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.cosentino.com/the-cosentino-group-and-gandiablasco-join-forces/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Array ( [0] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 71 [name] => News [slug] => news [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 71 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 468 [filter] => raw ) ) WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68663 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2018-04-04 00:00:00 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-04-04 00:00:00 [post_content] => [vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="24936" img_size="large"][vc_column_text]"10 LAYERS" is a sculptural Silestone® ping pong table.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Prestigious British designer, Ron Arad, devised 10 LAYERS during his recent visit to Cosentino’s factory in Almeria (Spain).
Ron Arad: “The idea for 10 LAYERS came in the extraordinary plant of Cosentino. When you look at the state of the art production of Dekton® and Silestone®, although you are there for a completely different purpose – cladding a tower, you can’t help but think ‘what else can we do with this magical material? We want to do something where we enjoy the material in a different way."
Ron Arad
I’ve done a ping pong table made of stainless steel and bronze, not a flat one, but one with a curved belly in its length. The idea was to slow the game down and make the rallies longer. The layered stone and the CNC milling allows us to make it curved in all directions, ie. a huge concave surface (convex in its underbelly) made of 10 different coloured layers. When you machine away the surfaces, the flat layers become perfect circles in sharp, contrasting colours.”

Mutua Universal Awards 2018

Cosentino Group was recognised yesterday as one of the prizewinning companies at the 3rd edition of the Mutua Universal Innovation and Health Awards.

The insurance company, partner of the Spanish Social Security system, organises these awards to recognise the work of companies that have used innovative projects to demonstrate a high level of commitment to the development and promotion of safe, healthy workplaces. The event, held yesterday at the Casino de Madrid, was attended by Carmen Casero, General Director of the Ministry of Employent for Freelance Work and Social Responsibility of Companies, and by Dr. Rafael Matesanz, founder of the National Transplants Organization.  Jose Luis Calleja, Commercial Director of Cosentino Madrid, represented the company at the event and received the award from Carmen López Hidalgo, provincial director of Madrid INSS, and Miriam Rabaneda, Planning and Research Director of Health Office of Madrid Community. Cosentino awarded at Mutua Universal Awards 2018 The awarding organisation assembled a shortlist of the twenty top contenders from all the candidates put forward this year; four finally won an award. Cosentino was a finalist in the ‘Large Companies’ category for its leadership programme ‘Safety by Routines, Leading by example’, which seeks to integrate health and safety through a series of routines reported through an app (Gensuite) that allows activities to be scheduled, reported and monitored. It is a concrete example of the digitalisation process and use of new technologies at Cosentino, which strengthens the culture of accident prevention and reinforces leadership in health and safety at all levels of the organisation. It should also be noted that the company was recognised by these awards last year for its “Development, Sustainability and Networks” project, a training programme many years in the making; its goal is to share knowledge along the value chain about the appropriate handling and processing of quartz surfaces and other engineered stone surfaces, with a particular emphasis on preventing exposure to silica dust. This programme is still active, and will enter a new stage across Spain in 2018 with support from various institutions. The Cosentino Group commitment to accident prevention and occupational safety is reflected in the company’s unremitting pace of investment, which allocates a certain percentage of profits in advance each year to develop and lead active policies in this area. In the last five years alone, Cosentino has invested €26.5 million in projects related to occupational health and safety, mainly in measures implemented at its production and processing facilities in Almeria, Brazil and the U.S.A. This figure raises the company’s investment in health and safety over the last two decades to €100 million. Beyond the company's own facilities, Cosentino is also turning this investment into extensive, wide-ranging informational and continuous training programmes directed at customers, suppliers and partners, with pioneering initiatives such as the Cosentino Aulas for stonemasons. Likewise, we have always created collaborative alliances with key players within the industry (public entities, associations, employer federations, trade unions, etc.) for the constant dissemination of best practices in health and safety. In the words of Esther Romero, Cosentino Group Health and Safety Director, ‘this new award is a stimulus that will help us improve our occupational health and safety policies, which are a fundamental pillar of the company’s activity. The practical case given an award this year exemplifies digital progress and growing modernisation, both of the company in general and the area I manage. In any case, it is just one of many advanced avenues of development that we currently have under way, such as the continuous improvement of facilities and equipment and permanent training to reinforce safe behaviour. And all of this always has the ultimate aim of involving the entire sector, transmitting knowledge and looking for the common good of our value chain’.

When remodelling her house in Westchester, New York, located an hour north of Manhattan, she created an airy day area comprising an open-plan kitchen and living room area. Of all the areas in the home, the open kitchen takes prominence, where Coco and her husband, James Conran, combined walnut-coloured furniture with white Silestone countertops with a glossy finish. The fact that they designed such minimalist areas with simple ambiances allowed them to balance the colour with daring, loud, and even rebellious pieces of pop art.

The materials were really crucial for achieving the desired style”. In this sense, it’s not surprising that they chose our Silestone® quartz surface, specifically selected in a North White colour, due to its great elegance and because it guarantees excellent durability without requiring hardly any maintenance. Something which the model appreciates, as she loves cooking with her daughter and this means that she does not have to worry about stains. In fact, to create coherence on the whole, the couple used the same Silestone® colour for the kitchen countertops and the gas fireplace lining.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="24430" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In terms of the layout, the peninsula bar serves as both a work area and a meeting point, while helping separate the kitchen from the adjoining living-dining room.

It was first discovered in the late 1970’s or early 1980’s. It has since become an incredibly popular material all around the world because of its durability and striking visual beauty. The deep black of the stone highlighted with naturally occurring gold colored flecks work well with a number of design motifs and can be a strong visual statement in any room. This star-studded material is provided by Cosentino under their Scalea brand name of natural stone materials. This article will provide information necessary when contemplating black galaxy granite including a description of the material, durability, maintenance, and how to determine the quality of a sample of material. Black Galaxy Granite

Description

Black galaxy granite is in the gabbro family of stone material and is sourced in the Ongole area of South India. The granite material is rated a 4.5 on the Moh’s scale of hardness, which is considered relatively hard. There are harder building materials, such as quartz, but granite is durable enough to withstand most common use. The material can have a dark black background, a greenish/black shading, or have some white in the background. Some lower quality material may have lines running throughout. The beautiful and distinguishing factor of black galaxy granite is the metallic flecks, caused by the presence of broncite, and can come in a few varying grades: These grades are based on the size of the flecks. Large grain is typically more highly desired, but is rare and more expensive. Galaxy granite is most commonly used in flooring, staircases, and countertops. The durability and beauty of the material are traits that usually put it in an area that is highly trafficked and will be seen by many. A highly polished finish accentuates the contrast and depth of colors and is most common, but flamed, honed, river-washed, and brushed finishes can also be applied to great effect.

Durability

Black Galaxy granite is a tough material that can take daily use and doesn’t require heavy maintenance. When used in high traffic areas, though, there is a possibility of scratching. Dust, sand, and debris can all cause scuffs and scratches that might show prominently on the dark colored surface. While granite is an incredibly hard and tough material, care still needs to be taken, especially around the edges and corners. It is a fairly brittle material, capable of being cracked or broken if struck sharply with a hard object.

Maintenance

Black Galaxy granite is strange in the world of natural stone in that it doesn’t need to be sealed. It is very dense and doesn’t absorb much at all. If a sealer is applied, it will not be absorbed into the surface and may cause streaking or a hazy finish on the surface. Spills will not necessarily absorb and stain immediately, but they still need to be wiped up as soon as possible. Acidic liquids can cause damage to the stone and should not be spilled onto the surface if at all possible. Specialty cleaners are available, but typically a warm soapy cloth or sponge should do the trick just fine. If the stone has a polished finish, a polish can be done at home to maintain the look and luster of the material. If another type of finish was applied (leathering, honing, etc), it is probably best to have a professional refinish the surface to avoid damaging the quality of the stone or surface. Black Galaxy Granite

Choosing quality

There are several things to consider when assessing the quality of a selection of black galaxy granite, but the three that have the biggest impacts on price and overall visual quality of the stone are lines (veins), galaxy size, and galaxy distribution. Being a natural stone material, black galaxy granite can have lines or veining running through it. This quality is what gives marble it’s beauty, but it not as desired in galaxy granite. The ratings of lines are typically laid out in the following order: The colored flecks of broncite are referred to as “galaxy,” and the size of galaxy has an impact on the quality of the material. The desirability of the size is as following:
  1. Large galaxy
  2. Medium galaxy
  3. Small galaxy
Another galaxy factor that is considered is galaxy distribution Cosentino is able to provide some of the best black galaxy granite on the market at a reasonable price and should be on every designer’s radar when it comes to suppliers.   [post_title] => Black Galaxy Granite: material made of stars [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => black-galaxy-granite-material-made-of-stars [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-03-14 00:00:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-03-14 00:00:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.cosentino.com/black-galaxy-granite-material-made-of-stars/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Array ( [0] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 71 [name] => News [slug] => news [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 71 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 468 [filter] => raw ) ) WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68650 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2018-03-14 00:00:00 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-03-14 00:00:00 [post_content] => [vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Cosentino Group, the global leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, presents at Expo Revestir 2018 its Dekton®, Silestone® and Sensa by Cosentino® novelties.

‘The Apartment’, by Ele Room 62

In this small apartment, the people in charge of the project, Inmaculada Recio and Silvia Trigueros, have expressed the importance given by Belgians to their home, recreating practical, well organised spaces, which do not compromise on elegance. In particular, they used Dekton® Kelya, which is inspired by black marble with light streaks, for the countertop on the kitchen island and the laundry liner.

‘Apartment for Ofelia’, by Raúl Martins

The furniture company Natuzzi has entrusted this project to the interior designer Raúl Martins, who has designed two sophisticated, harmonious environments with no shortage of textiles: bedroom and living-dining room. In this case, Martins uses Dekton® Aura 15, with a marble effect, for the lid of a beautiful auxiliary piece of furniture and a decorative composition on the wall.

‘A journey through time’ Public Baths, by Miriam Alía

Miriam Alía draws influence from the avant-garde aesthetic of the 60s to design spectacular bathrooms with dramatic effects. The walls and floors incorporate a relief effect to become three-dimensional elements. In this “journey through time”, the interior designer aimed to create a space where Hollywood glamour and luxury come hand in hand. That’s why she incorporated a washbasin made with Silestone® Blanco Zeus, with straight and sober lines.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="20px"][vc_media_grid element_width="3" grid_id="vc_gid:1521196244763-cea9ea14-45d3-3" include="24031,24032,24033,24034,24035,24036,24037,24038"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

‘A Garden of Contrasts’ Terrace, by DmasC Arquitectos

Casa Decor Madrid's rooftop is a luscious green area; a kind of mini-garden to escape from the urban environment. The space mixes outdoor and indoor elements, with two greenhouses. In fact, one of these includes a bar made with Dekton® Entzo, chosen by DmasC Arquitectos, which as we have seen throughout this tour of the exhibition, was also previously chosen by the family company As Interiorista, as well as the interior designer and plastic artist Jaime Jurado.

Silka Barrio takes us to a place where our imagination will run wild; a place of stories, fables, legends... Nature invades this space to the very last corner with technical textiles, used in the chairs, ceilings, walls and decorative elements, as well as carpets and tiles with prints of works from emerging artists. And to top it off, the catering bar and one of the pieces of furniture have been coated with Silestone® Eternal Marquina, with a dark black background and bright contrasting white veins.[/vc_column_text][vc_media_grid element_width="3" grid_id="vc_gid:1521196244791-5adc24f5-7721-8" include="24050,24049,24048,24047"][vc_empty_space height="20px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Casa Decor 2018 will close the exhibition on 25 March.

The development consists of 201 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, all with double orientation, views of the park, storage rooms and parking spaces. There are also shops separate from the residential area. This project’s most notable features are its layout, accessibility and thermal and acoustic efficiency, as well as its incorporation of the latest technology and application of innovative, next-generation materials for construction, architecture and design, such as Dekton® by Cosentino and Silestone® by Cosentino.   Almost 8,000 m2 of the ultracompact surface Dekton® have been used in the first stage of this residential development to make façades and pedestals, as have 72 worktops and 72 shower trays made from the quartz surface Silestone®.   In this first stage of the work, Dekton® has given shape to 7,200 m2 of façade and 400 m2 of pedestal Dekton® by Cosentino has been chosen as the façade cladding for this project due to its excellent aesthetic and building qualities, which ensure exceptional durability and extraordinary thermal performance. Carlos Rubio. Architect. Estudio Rubio Arquitectura: ‘The exceptional qualities of Dekton® were a key factor in its choice as the façade material. Its large format, as well as its variety of textures and colours, have allowed us to respond and emphasise our play on form and volume.’ Cesar Cort. Valenor President: ‘Our projects stand out for their exclusive architecture, functional design, accessibility and versatility, incorporating the latest technologies for both materials and facilities. Dekton® is a material with zero porosity that neither expands nor contracts with changes in temperature, so it doesn’t degrade or deteriorate. It’s a unique product.’ The selected Dekton® colours – Warm and Korus – bring harmony and restraint to the development. Warm’s white finish gives the building a cosy feel and brings it into harmony with its surroundings. Korus’ grey shade has been installed to highlight particular parts of the façade, complementing the colour Warm to perfection. The pedestal has been surfaced with Domoos, a very elegant black shade that facilitates a unique contrast with the larger areas. Dekton® by Cosentino is the perfect material for this kind of application due to its excellent qualities, such as high resistance to UV radiation, colour stability, durability, resistance to thermal shocks, high stain resistance, reduced porosity, and large-format and personalised manufacturing. ETA 14/0413 (European Technical Assessment) documentation and CE certification attest to its suitability as cladding for a ventilated façade. This first set of homes features 72 custom Silestone® Kador shower trays   The Valdebebas 127 project was conceived with the idea that its interiors, like the exteriors that surround them, would be of the highest quality and provide design that stands out. The Silestone® Kador model has been chosen for the shower trays, providing the excellent durability of quartz, which is entirely impervious to stains and scratches. The colour chosen for this application – Silestone® Blanco Zeus – brings a sense of cleanliness, hygiene and space to the environment. Cosentino’s shower trays comply with DIN 51097:1992 standards certifying their low slip risk.   A total of 72 custom Silestone® Blanco Zeus worktops have been used in the first stage of the housing development The kitchens in this housing development were conceived to give customers top performance. For this reason, the kitchen worktops have been made of Silestone®, the sector benchmark and leader. Silestone® guarantees worktop quality, durability, low porosity, stain resistance, easy maintenance and cleaning, scratch and knock resistance, a wide range of colours and textures, and large-format and custom manufacturing. The search for light meant that the colour chosen for the worktops was the purest white: Silestone® Blanco Zeus. The kitchens are elegant, restrained and light-filled thanks to Silestone®.

Cosentino Group continues to strengthen its economic and financial position as well as its commitment to sustainable growth based on innovation, new technologies and efficient management.

Results and key figures from Fiscal Year 2017

The company closed Fiscal Year 2017 with consolidated revenue of €901 million, representing an increase of more than 8% on 2016, a figure negatively impacted by the depreciation of sales income against the euro. In comparable terms (using a regularised exchange rate), this figure was 10%, highlighting strong growth in certain markets, including Europe (+20%) and Spain/Portugal (+12%).

In terms of operating results, the Companys EBITDA last fiscal year totalled €128 million, or an increase of 10%. Changes in the exchange rate had a strong negative impact on this figure; relatively speaking, this effect was even more pronounced here than for the sales figures mentioned above. With regularised figures, the relative growth on 2016 was 19%. This increase in profitability was caused by the absorption of fixed costs, which led to an increase in consolidated revenue (+10%).

The accounting figure with the most pronounced improvement over the last fiscal year was net profit, which totalled €57 million, or a 33% increase on 2016. This was due to very strong financial results, as well as the financial coverage provided by the exchange rate risk management policy, which mitigated the negative effect previously mentioned in the EBITDA case.

Investment Plan 2016-2019

The company has already invested slightly less than €200 million, or 52% of its total planned investments, whose total value is €380 million; 70% of this has been in productive growth investments, most notably the construction and opening of a second Dekton® manufacturing plant, as well as new automated logistics facilities that will begin operations over the next few months.

In addition, during 2017, Cosentino Group also focused on the automation of existing factories for product diversification, as well as to increase production flexibility and response speed, and has implemented even more improvements to its environmental management as part of its maximum commitment to sustainability. All these investments were made at Cosentinos main industrial park in Cantoria, Almeria (Spain), which is also the seat of its corporate headquarters. At present, the site has a total area of 2.3 million m2.

International Expansion and Job Creation

The Group continues its strong commitment to internationalisation and geographical expansion across the world. Seven new Cosentino Centers were opened in 2017, scattered across countries such as the USA, Canada, Israel, Singapore, South Africa, Poland and the UAE. At the same time, the company opened 2 Cosentino Cities, spectacular showrooms located at the hearts of the world’s most important cities. One was the Groups first City showroom in Spain, located in Madrid.

Thanks to these new facilities, the company closed 2017 with 140 own business units in 32 countries across 5 continents. For the next three years, the company is maintaining an ambitious growth plan in this regard, including the opening of 30 new business units, including Centers (full-service warehouses) and Cities (showrooms). This follows up on the company’s new and recent corporate commitment to inspire people through innovative spaces.

The aforementioned investments, in production as well as business and logistics, have been financed through a combination of own assets and outside financing (which grew 9%, or approximately €20 million, last year). Company debt has undergone positive changes, and the current debt ratio (net debt divided by EBITDA) is 1.5.

As in previous fiscal years, industrial and commercial growth has been accompanied by strong job growth, and the total number of Group employees at the end of 2017 totalled more than 4,000 people worldwide. Last year, Cosentino created 340 new jobs. Half of these, or 170 jobs, were in Spain. This figure adds to the 300 jobs the company created across the world in 2016.

Finally, the company is preparing for the coming years in accordance with an updated Strategic Plan that covers the period 2018-2020. This Strategic Plan involves speeding up the pace of investment, doubling down on the companys commitment to digitalisation and new technologies in both production and sales to reinforce the competitiveness and leading position that guarantee sustainable growth. And in the midst of all this, we have not lost sight of the continuing Investment Plan, which is now facing its final stage. This stage is particularly focused on innovation and product development, as well as the automation of production processes.

The new hues offer a modern, reinvented take on some of the most sought-after marbles and stones, coupled with the latest technological advancements only Silestone® can offer. The Eternal Collection is the first in Silestone’s offering to have veining and highlights run completely through the material, including its edges, resulting in an even more natural appearance. The five new colors include Bianco Calacatta, Classic Calacatta, Desert Silver, Eternal Emperador and Eternal Marfil.

Its unparalleled beauty is met with industry-leading performance, thanks to its Silestone® N-Boost technology. This innovation patented by Cosentino modifies the material’s surface at a molecular level to further enhance its outstanding technical and aesthetic attributes: Greater color saturation and extraordinary luster, along with an enhanced water repellent property that makes it even easier to clean and maintain. As with all Silestone® natural quartz products, the Eternal Collection includes the notable characteristics that set the brand apart: high resistance to impact and scratching; manufactured in large formats; and versatility of application.



Bianco Calacatta

The luminary hue of the 2018 collection combines thick, electric veins with a soft gray background for drama and contrast, creating an instant focal point in any space.


Classic Calacatta

Elegant and subtle, Classic  Calacatta reinterprets coveted Calacatta marble. Its uniform grayish veins stretch across the slab with a translucent appearance, evoking an authentic resemblance to real stone.


Desert Silver

More monochromatic in its appearance, Desert Silver offers an icy, translucent aesthetic creased by fine, clear veins. Inspired by the classic and long-lasting marble trend, it complements any type of material and architectural element.


Eternal Emperador

A warm, tabacco brown background set against light and streaks embraces earthy tones reflective of a growing demand for moody, darker marbles. Here, tradition and elegance reinvents itself with a touch of sumptuousness for a bold statement.


Eternal Marfil

Creamy, soft and minimalist, Eternal Marfil puts a unique spin on Crema Marfil marble to bring an organic serene aesthetic to the space.

Grant van Gameren

One of Canada’s best-known chefs and restaurateurs, Grant Van Gameren is self-taught and first rose to prominence as co-owner and head chef of The Black Hoof. He now owns 6 restaurants and bars in Toronto. Overbudget Inc. is a parent company of popular Toronto-based restaurants Bar Isabel, Bar Raval, El Rey, PrettyUgly, Harry’s Char Broil, and Quetzal.

The Project

The Overbudget Offices was a complete rebuild renovation combining modern Japanese and Scandinavian design influences. Chef and Restaurateur, Grant van Gameren worked closely with Studio Junction Architect and Design Studio to design the space to be a creative platform and a central hub for partners and employees under the Overbudget Inc. umbrella.

The primary functions of the multi-use space are to conceptualize and test new recipes and drinks and to hold group meetings and launch events.

Functionality is equally as important as the design of the Overbudget Offices. Ultra-compact Dekton® and Silestone® quartz surfaces play a significant role in the design and were utilized throughout as countertops, backsplashes and wall cladding, allowing van Gameren and his team to work in a worry-free environment resistant to stains, heat and scratches.

Dekton® in Glacier was used as the kitchen island, demonstrating extreme durability when faced with the unforgiving force of a working chef. It was also featured as the bar top and bar prep area countertops and backsplash, where it consistently stands up to stubborn stains.

Silestone® in Charcoal Soapstone was installed as the kitchen countertops and backsplash, creating a striking juxtaposition between the kitchen and the rest of the open space.

Interview with Grant van Gameren

Q: What is the purpose of the Overbudget Offices?

A: Our main objective is to provide a space where our chefs, bartenders, servers, owners, marketing, public relations and accounting teams can collaborate in a creative and vibrant environment. It’s a space where we can meet to further develop our existing projects and be the birthplace of new ideas and businesses. 

Q: How does the renovation meet your needs?

A: It is both functional, beautiful and is adaptable to our day to day needs. It can easily transform from a space of recipe development and marketing meetings to a catered event for an important client. We have selected durable surfaces that can hold up to being utilized daily without sacrificing on design. 

Q: What was the inspiration behind the design of the Overbudget Offices?

A: Our main inspiration was for the space to be bright, airy and clean. A typical restaurant office can be dark and depressing. We wanted a space that was both inviting and productive – a space that makes you happy to come to work each day and perform to your fullest extent. With every restaurant, we design based on creating a feeling for the end user. In this case, the feeling we wanted to create for our office is one of inspiration and productivity. We love natural materials. When working with beautiful stone and wood, you don’t have to do much. We wanted the rich warmth from oak and walnut and the clean and bright feeling of Cosentino countertops. 

Q: Why did you decide to incorporate Dekton and Silestone into the project?

A: When contemplating countertops, we needed something both resilient and beautiful. Very rarely do you see both of these qualities in the same product. Dekton has the durability of a man-made product with the beauty of a natural stone. It’s heat and scratch resistance is second to none. We chose to do our backsplash with Silestone in charcoal, a beautiful option that looks like natural soapstone but without the upkeep and fragility you encounter with natural soapstone.

Cosentino Group is continuing to push ahead with the international expansion of its own assets with the opening of the first Cosentino Center in South Africa. The Center, located in the city of Johannesburg, consolidates the multinational company’s presence across five continents, and brings the company’s number of these innovative full-service warehouses around the world to more than 100.

The grand opening of the new Center was held last week at an event attended by over a wide representation of the company’s clients and partners, institutional and sector representatives, regional designers and architects and South African media. The event featured live music and various official presentations. The company was represented by Eduardo Cosentino, EVP of Global Sales & CEO of Cosentino North America; Ginés Navarro, VP of Sales for the ROW (Rest of the World); and Neil Sterley, Regional Director of Cosentino South Africa.

With a total floorspace of 3.200 m2, Cosentino’s Johannesburg Center is located in Elandsfontein, an area in the western part of the city very close to Johannesburg’s Oliver Reginald Tambo International Airport.  This Center, the first to be officially opened in the country and in all of Africa and will offer all the resources and spaces typical of this type of facility, with work and exhibition spaces, offices and a training centre. Its storage capacity can hold 10.000 slabs of Cosentino innovative materials.

It should be noted that Cosentino had logistics operators in South Africa already, one in Cape Town and one in Johannesburg itself. Opened between 2014 and 2015, these installations allowed the company to strengthen its presence and establishment through proprietary activities on five continents. With the opening of the Center in Johannesburg, Cosentino is doubling down on its commitment to South Africa as a country and its bet that this region will act as a future lever for growth in the rest of the continent.

The revolutionary ultracompact surface Dekton® by Cosentino provides the flooring for a spectacular spa nearly 14 m2 in size, inspiring dreams of all visitors. The nature recreated in the environment fuses with perfection with the steely, broken, elegant and industrial aesthetic of the colour Orix. The ‘FiturtechY’ and #techYhotel welcome area include a main reception desk made from the durable quartz surface Silestone® by Cosentino, specifically in the colour Eternal Calacatta Gold. The presence of Dekton® and Silestone® help achieve the goal set by the ITH for ‘FiturtechY’ 2018: to show that guests’ and visitors’ dreams can be made a reality through technology. Organised by the ITH and in partnership with FITUR and the Spanish Hotel and Tourist Accommodation Federation (CEHAT), ‘FiturtechY’ has become the benchmark event for technology in the tourism sector over the last 11 years. Cosentino’s participation in this space for the third consecutive year shows the company’s commitment with the HoReCa industry, providing leading and cutting-edge materials for the innovation and technology they bring. Since 2014, Cosentino has also been a partner member of CEHAT, an alliance that was strengthened in May 2017 when the general management of CEHAT, led by its president Juan Molas, visited Cosentino’s headquarters in Cantoria (Almeria).

Swissbau 2018 gathers from the 16th to the 20th of January more the 100.000 architects, designers, builders and other proffesionals from the building industry, and it represents the main meeting point for this industry in the Alpine country. On the other hand, from the 18th to the 21st of January, the show known as the design show of Canada, International Design Show 2018, takes place in the city of Toronto. Since its first edition in 199, this event has welcomed more than 700.000 design proffesionals, consumers and media. Like previous years, Cosentino will present the latest launches of its innovative brands in a spectacular booth of 93m2. Cosentino will present in both shows it recent and revolutionary ultracompact surface Dekton® Industrial Collection, made up of four non-conformist colours with an urban style and environmentally conscious carácter: Nilium, Radium, Orix and Trilium. Its forcé and aesthetic personality, combined with its unique mechanical properties, won it numerous prizes, among them the German Design Award Winner 2018. What refers to Silestone® novelties, at Swissbau Cosentino will showcase the Silestone® Eternal Collection, inspired by history’s most popular marbles, and manufactured with Cosentino’s patented and revolutionary Silestone® N-Boost technology, which modifies the surface of the material at a molecular level, improving its technicla and aesthetic properties. At IDS Toronto, Cosentino will introduce 5 new colours that expand this same collection for the North American market, which were earlier this month presented at KBIS 2018. These new shades, Eternal Bianco Calacatta, Eternal Calacatta Classic, Eternal Desert Silver, Eternal Emperador and Eternal Marfil, incorpórate Silestone N-Boost revolutionary technology and offer veining and reflections that etend over the entire surface of the slab, granting it a uniquely natural and beautiful look. Cosentino’ visitors at Swissbau can also discover latest exotic granites of Sensa by Cosentino®, the exclusive range of stain protected granite worktops. Lastly, at both shows, Cosentino will unveil some prototypes of Silestone® and Dekton® novelties the global company foresees to launch throughout 2018 in Europe as well as in North America.

KBIS is an unmissable event because it offers design, the latest ideas, fashion, innovation, and more, and Cosentino cleared the bar in all of these areas. The hundreds of people who visited Cosentino’s 325 m2 booth at KBIS 2018 were able to enjoy the latest from Dekton® and Silestone® surfaces, which, thanks to their aesthetics and functionality, provide value and inspire people’s lives. [/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] The ultracompact surface Dekton® forms part of the splendid DeKauri project developed by Cosentino in collaboration with the designer Daniel Germani and the Italian furniture manufacturer Riva 1920. Making its global debut at KBIS, DeKauri won Silver in the ‘Best of Bath’ category of the ‘Best of KBIS 2018’ awards. Further recognition was received at the fair by the outdoor kitchen ASA-D2, made with Dekton® by Cosentino, which was recognised by the prestigious American magazine Beautiful Kitchens & Baths through its inclusion in the magazine’s annual ‘30 Most Innovative Products’ list. [/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] In terms of new product developments, Cosentino presented its recent Dekton® Industrial collection, made up of four non-conformist colours with an urban style and environmentally conscious character: Nilium, Radium, Orix and Trilium. Its force and aesthetic personality, combined with its unique mechanical properties, won it recognition and numerous prizes in 2017. KBIS also provided a forum in which to present the new colours that will expand the Eternal Collection of the quartz surface Silestone® for the North American market. These five new shades - Eternal Bianco Calacatta, Eternal Calacatta Classic, Eternal Desert Silver, Eternal Emperador and Eternal Marfil - offer veining and reflections that extend over the entire surface of the slab, granting it a uniquely natural and beautiful look. [/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] The Spanish chef Sergio Pérez provided for Cosentino at KBIS daily demonstrations of the resistance and durability of Dekton® by cooking delicious recipes directly on the material’s surface, delighting visitors. At the same time, ‘Silestone® Trendspotters’, the group of popular American designers and influencers who have worked with Cosentino for years to create new colours and fashions for the American market, held an exclusive event at the company’s booth with Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America and the group’s Executive Vice-President of Global Sales. Cosentino also participated in two very important events at KBIS 2018. The company was one of the sponsors of the KBIS Bash, which was held during that week in the city of Orlando. Hand-in-hand with Daniel Germani, a Dekton® brand ambassador and partner, Cosentino took part in the Designer Discussion Forum, organised by the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). Cosentino products also beautified the spaces of other important and well-known companies in the sector, such as Wellborn, Ideal Cabinetry, Brown Jordan, Procraft Cabinetry, Gary Tan, Franke and Liebherr.

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] “When it comes to the kitchen there are ingenious, innovative design solutions to hide and store everything,” Germani says. “But that’s not always the case in the bathroom. I realized bathroom storage has at its core remained the same.” That sparked the concept for a freestanding piece of furniture to house and conceal both the sink and storage. “DeKauri transforms incredibly utilitarian parts of the bath into something incredibly beautiful. It helps take away the feeling of being in a bathroom. I could very easily see this in a master suite, a power room, or even in an open-concept bedroom where the sleeping space and bath flow into one another.” [/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] With a washbasin crafted from Dekton® by Cosentino and Kauri wood used for the credenza, Germani’s use of materials pays homage to the resilience of Mother Nature: the technology behind Dekton® captures the beauty of natural stone with unparalleled durability, and the Kauri wood – excavated from New Zealand where it has been buried under mud and water for thousands of years—adds a truly exotic feel to the piece. “DeKauri is a modern day heirloom,” Germani says. “Its timeless appeal and impeccable construction will last generations.” A faucet from Fantini Rubinetti and lighting from Juniper Design complete the look. As an alternative, DeKauri can also be constructed from inlays of Walnut, Wenge and Cedar. [/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] DeKauri marks the fifth piece that Germani has designed in collaboration with Dekton® by Cosentino, and the second with both Dekton® and Riva 1920.

This saying was on display last night at the charity event held at Cosentino’s showroom in Madrid by the Mutua Madrid Open and Cosentino Group, the international Spanish firm and leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for the architecture and design sector. It was an emotional event that attracted the attention and support of different celebrities for the actions of the Aladina Foundation and the improvement projects planned for the Niño Jesús University Children’s Hospital in Madrid. ‘Cosentino City Madrid’ served as the location and the ideal setting for a charity drinks event where various objects tied to the company from Almeria and the Masters 1000 tournament were auctioned off to attendees. The star item was an impressive ping-pong table made of the ultracompact surface Dekton® by Cosentino and bearing the signatures of many of the world’s best tennis players who competed in this year’s Mutua Madrid Open. The table, which was signed by such stars as Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Garbiñe Muguruza, Simona Halep and many others, was sold for a total of €1,500. Also auctioned off were a few spectacular paintings provided by the tournament and signed by the specialist sport portraitist Víctor Jerez, namely two 100 x 80 cm acrylic paintings made on site during the semifinals of this year’s Mutua Madrid Open. One, a portrait of Rafael Nadal, was signed by the tennis player from Manacor himself, while the other, which portrayed Novak Djokovic, was signed by the Serbian tennis star. Bids for the two canvases reached a combined value of €2,200. Including the other objects and items donated by both entities, the event raised €6,000 in total, which the organisers will send to both the Aladina Foundation and the Niño Jesús Children’s Hospital in Madrid. Manolo Santana and Gerard Tsobanian represented the Mutua Madrid Open at the event, while the Spanish firm was represented by Santiago Alfonso, Vice President of Communications and Marketing. Aladina Foundation Director Ishtar Espejo attended the event on behalf of the Foundation, while César Gómez Derch, the managing director of the Niño Jesús Hospital, represented the paediatric centre. This charity auction was born of the existing synergy between the two entities, principally considering that Cosentino, through its Dekton® brand, has been a sponsor of the Mutua Madrid Open since 2016, an agreement that was recently renewed for next year. At the same time, both the firm and the tennis tournament have different experiences and maintain an active level of collaboration with the improvement projects taking place at the Children’s Hospital. For example, Cosentino donated various Silestone® surfaces in Iconic White to make worktops, facings and hand-washing stations at the ICU of the children’s hospital; the Aladina Foundation acted as a driving force for this project, which officially opened a year ago. Meanwhile, the Mutua Madrid Open is currently supporting the centre’s improvement project for a new Therapy Unit.

You can't fail to make a tasty dish if you have good ingredients. And any event with international stars as big as Cindy Crawford and José Andrés is guaranteed to be a success. On December 6, Cosentino invited these two leading figures to discuss topics they have in depth knowledge of: food, design and healthy living. The event was held at the Tatel Miami restaurant, where products from the Cosentino Group's Dekton and Sensa firms have been applied in a number of different ways.

Cindy revealed that, having grown up in the Midwest, a region with very little culinary variety, she began to "taste a bit of everything" when her career took her all over the world. The top model also mentioned that she loves being in the kitchen with her family and baking cakes, and that no matter which of her houses she is in, the heart of her home is always the kitchen. For his part, chef José Andrés divulged during their entertaining conversation that his wife is the one who calls the shots in their home kitchen. Both stars also emphasized that a good diet is key to a healthy lifestyle. The talk was chaired by Orlando Segura, the reporter from the ‘Despierta América’ program on the Univisión channel.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row gap="20"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="6899" img_size="medium"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="6898" img_size="medium"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The event marked the end of the first year of the relationship between Cindy Crawford and Cosentino.

Over the course of this year, the international businesswoman and top model has demonstrated her keen interest in the world of interior decoration.

The building was cladded with glazing, refurbishment and over-cladding of the existing façade with an overall stimated value of 30milion GBP. There are a number of localy listed buildings in the surrounding area therefore selection of appropriate material that could economically meet all the requirements of construction and also mesh up with the heritage surroundings was important. 3.000m2 of Dekton® Danae finish was selected and installed as it provided all the features, characteristics and finish that was needed on this scheme. The re-cladding work would considerably improve the exterior of Archway Tower and vastly improve the locality. Re-cladding of the main element of the tower resulted in the removal of the existing concrete panels and their replacement with solid Dekton® rainscreen cladding and spandrel panels. The re-cladding has facilitated the reuse of the building for residential use that amounts to sustainable development. At the same time it has improved the quality of the design in terms of architecture, urban design and the impact of the development on townscape and views while connecting between people and places and the integration of new development into the natural, built and historic environment.

High resistance to UV rays, color stability, or high resistance to stains, make it the perfect material for this façade. The design of the Dekton® cladding pannels on the main elevations of the façade follows a regular grid of openings. They have a vertical emphasis above the 2nd floor with the vertically proportioned bays running across, that has significantly enhanced the appearance of the old tower and has given a distinctive appearance, standing proud of the surrounding buildings, and symbolizing regeneration of the wider area. Due to limited space on site, access to the external façade of the building was removed, cleared and installed using mast climbing system. Panels were man-handled for installation on mast climber. Under cut anchor system was used to fix the panels on the secondary support structure. The panels were pre-assembled with the anchors and hangers in a designated site area and then taken to the allocated area for installation. Feature projected frames were installed using mtred and chamfered corners on the front and rear elevations of the building providing an appealing visual appearance. Dekton® differentiates the building elements from the main elevations and has helped in expressing the structural form of the Tower.

Thanks to its properties, Dekton® surface can be perfectly incorporated onto façades by means of different types of concealed stainless steel or aluminum fixings. The ETA issued for Cosentino includes the characterization and experimental evaluation of the Dekton® surface for use as external wall cladding for façades: wind load resistance, impact resistance and reaction to fire, durability, and the characterization of the fixing components necessary for the surface to be conveniently incorporated onto façades. External cladding for ventilated façades with the CE marking offer performance that has been assessed by a third party and performance characteristics that have been confirmed and contrasted according to European methodologies. In addition, Dekton® obtained in 2016 the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD®) after analyzing during 2015 the environmental impact of its life cycle. The results obtained in the Life Cycle Analysis of Dekton® reflect optimal results in the following analyzed phases of the product: production in the industrial plant, transport, installation, use and end of life. Certified by The International EPD® System, this certificate confirms Cosentino Group’s high environmental compromise policy, and guarantees its implication in the improvement in the efficiency of raw material and energy consumption, reducing the generation of waste.

ASA-D2 is available in four separate colors from Dekton’s current offering. Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens utilized its innovative powder-coat process to customize the stainless steel cabinetry to replicate the pattern of the Dekton countertop. Colors offered include: Dekton Trilium, Dekton XGloss Spectra, Dekton Aura and Dekton XGloss Halo. This recognition from Interior Design—a global, industry-leading design publication that for 80 years has been a go-to resource for the design industry—further demonstrates Cosentino’s global leadership in design and innovation in the surfacing industry.

Popularly known as "the Sea Chef", Seville-born Ángel León has made his home in Cádiz, where his Aponiente restaurant has received the ultimate accolade in the 2018 edition of the tyre company's famous guide: three Michelin stars. The prize is the result of a great deal of hard work and a very ambitious project, which began in September, 2015, when the chef moved from a small, modest establishment to the Molino de Mareas (the Tide Mill) in the Cádiz district of El Puerto de Santa María. Sixty-five people now work in this impressive 19th-century building, which boasts 1,800 square metres of floor space and is surrounded by marshes and salt works. The utmost care was taken when designing the refurbished premises, as evidenced by the various features made from Dekton® ultra-compact surfaces by Cosentino. To give a more specific example, the brand's Zenith colour model, a solid white tone that offers purity and brightness, was used for the worktops and some of the walls.

The talk-colloquium "Dialogues on the kitchen of the future" held at the Cosentino headquarters, was attended by architect Juli Capella, chef Jose Alvarez and interior designer Lucas Paris. During the session the speakers explained their vision on how domestic kitchen will evolve in the next 25 years. According to the architect Juli Capella, "the kitchen of the future will be monomaterial. The floor, walls, countertops, cabinets, , ... will be created with a single material which may have different textures. It will be a loving kitchen, coming from the heart and therefore it will become the organic center of the house and thus of society. It will have a humanistic and funny touch since we are in a society of enjoyment and joy. In short, it will be a warm and loving mix, but at the same time personalized." For the chef Jose Álvarez, the kitchen of the future will be essentially experiential. In his restaurant "La Costa" in El Ejido (Almería) he puts this concept into practice. He invites guests to enter into the kitchen to have a first tasting before going to lunch room, so they can see him and his team cooking. For the chef, the experience lived in the restaurant, is one of the keys of the differentiation in restaurant service. According to the interior designer Lucas Paris, the development of weather-resistant appliances and furniture will facilitate the popularization of outdoor kitchens turning the outdoor space into an extension of the living room.

When it comes to Nadal and Dekton, success is the only thing that springs to mind. A winner of 16 Gran Slam tournaments to date, he is the second highest ranked professional player, in terms of “big” titles, in tennis history.

It is made from the same sophisticated raw materials as used in the manufacture of glass, porcelain and quartz surfaces, and this gives it unique features found nowhere else on the market. At the London Marriott Hotel County Hall, the venue for the launch event, the world's top tennis player had this to say about the “Industrial” series: “I'm sure the colours from the Dekton Industrial series will be very popular and a great success.”[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_J_IhG6iMo"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type="image_grid" images="8954,8955,8956,8957" img_size="182x182"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This new collection has been created as a tribute to the beautiful imperfections found in metal and stone as they go through the various stages of the ageing process. The series features the following four models: Trilium, which offers a blend of colours inspired by volcanic stones and includes details in intense grey and black tones; Radium, which reproduces the effect of a rusted steel plate corroded by acid; Nilium, which is inspired by a silver-plated metal and offers a subtle blend of white and grey tones; and last but not least, Orix, which reproduces a worn-cement effect. Rafa Nadal's best attribute is his versatility, achieved through tenacity and a dedication to training, and demonstrated by his status as an “artificial” left–hander. Likewise, Dekton® is available in a range of differently shaped cuts, which simplifies the work of architects and designers to produce excellent results. At the London launch, the top sportsman also commented: “From the outset, I've enjoyed a very good relationship with Cosentino. The fact that it's a family firm, something I value highly in my life, makes the relationship even stronger, if that were possible. Innovation, approachability and continuous hard work are other qualities I value, and ones I'm delighted to share with a company such as Cosentino.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] [post_title] => Nadal and Dekton, the number one [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => nadal-and-dekton-the-number-one [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-11-16 00:00:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-11-16 00:00:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.cosentino.com/nadal-and-dekton-the-number-one/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Array ( [0] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 71 [name] => News [slug] => news [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 71 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 468 [filter] => raw ) ) WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68541 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2017-11-16 00:00:00 [post_date_gmt] => 2017-11-16 00:00:00 [post_content] => Cosentino Group, global leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, has received the Keys to Miami City from Ana Cristina Carrodeguas, First Lady of Miami, spouse of Miami Major Tomás Pedro Regalado.

Excerpts:

Question: [...] about that crossover between your career in fashion, but also your passion for design. Answer Cindy Crawford: There’s a lot there, but I think the thing that I want to start with is this saying, and it took me awhile to really understand this myself, but “Style is style.” You can’t really separate your personal sense of style from how you live, or what kind of music you listen to, or how you entertain people. And that’s one of the great things that comes with age, as you get older you become more knowledgeable and confident in your style, whatever that is.  So I certainly evolved. My very first decorating that I did was finding new wallpaper for my bedroom, when my sister went off to college.  [/av_textblock] [av_image src='https://www.cosentino.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/6.-Silestone-x-Cindy-Crawford-NYC_Cindy-Crawford_Whitney-Robinson-1.jpg' attachment='3925' attachment_size='full' align='center' animation='no-animation' styling='' hover='' link='' target='' caption='' font_size='' appearance='' overlay_opacity='0.4' overlay_color='#000000' overlay_text_color='#ffffff' custom_class=''][/av_image] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] Q: So I saw that in an interview you did, where the kitchen is really the heart of the home for you. And I think it has been in all of these homes. Why? And how is it so, is because you love cooking, or. A C.C.: Michael Smith said something on this, and it’s funny; if there’s not a bed, a TV, a refrigerator, or a toilet in a room, you do not go in that room. Because you have these beautiful rooms, but what’s drawing you there? You need that thing that draws you there. So the kitchen is the natural gathering place, because what’s the first thing everyone does when they get up in the morning? They get their coffee, your tea, your kids are hungry, and it’s such a family focal point. We always wanted an island with seating as well as a table, because I like sitting at an island. I think it’s such a natural place for everyone to gather at.  Q: Your new campaign with Silestone is with the Eternal series, but it’s all about this type of beauty and design, and I’m wondering, did you have a favorite from the collection? A C.C.: Yes. What was surprising for me was how much I liked, because right now we have a white kitchen in our main house, I was shocked because it [touching the Silestone] it feels great. It’s really pretty. And it’s like that one statement piece that you can have everything else on and this is the wow piece. So I actually, after seeing this and showing it to Rande, was like, we need to figure out a cool way to include this. I’ve never used this dark of a stone before, and I think that it’s really beautiful, it feels great, and it’s super adorable, and those are the things I care about. If you can’t put a lemon on it, don’t put it in my house.

The chef and businessman Carles Abellán-Carles Abellán Group-, the architect and gastronome Miquel Espinet -Espinet/Ubach Arquitectes- and Santiago Alfonso -Cosentino Group- have shared a round table to elaborate on the latest trends and novelties of the culinary space.  [/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] "The kitchen becomes a show for the dinner guest" Miquel Espinet has explained how the professional kitchen has evolved from being an inhospitable place to becoming a space that can be enjoyed and visited by customers and is open to the entire staff. For Espinet the design of restaurants has fully changed its style regarding materials, the floor tiles, the look of the countertop, the hoods… According to Espinet, two large lines of modernity have opened up in restaurants in the last few years: the counter and the open kitchen. The counter is an element you lean on, where your meal is served, and which differentiates those who eat from those who serve. On the other hand, the kitchen becomes the focal point of the restaurant and it is a real show to see the chefs cook. [/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] "The counter conveys the soul of our territory, giving us identity" Carles Abellán, chef and businessman of the restaurant La Barra de Carlos Abellán, has explained the creative process of the concept and design of a restaurant. Abellán is a great fan of the counter, which he considers an element that offers dynamism and enjoyment to any establishment. According to the chef, the counter conveys the soul of our territory, it indicates that we like bars, that we like counters and that we enjoy them and eat very well on them. A novelty included in this restaurant is that everything that happens in the kitchen, located on the ground floor of the premises, is broadcast live.

Dekton®, the innovative ultracompact surface created by Cosentino for architecture and design has been awarded by Architectural Digest Great Design Award. As a leading global design authority, Architectural Digest celebrates the very best of international design and innovative products in its magazine each month. To further elevate distinctive products in an increasingly crowded space, AD recognizes the best of the best with the AD Great Design Awards, curated with the publication’s tastemakers, influencers and design enthusiasts in mind. Among the winners in the kitchen category for the 2017 Great Design Awards: Dekton® XGloss in Halo and Spectra colors. Dekton® XGloss Halo, a soft white hue married with a high-gloss finish, fits traditional aesthetics and sleek, modern spaces alike.  A solid black with exceptional shine, Dekton® XGloss Spectra is a luminous and intense black color that lends a spectacular elegance to any project, whether used as a countertop, backsplash, or flooring. “Just as Cosentino pioneered the development of Dekton as an extremely resilient ultra-compact surface, we’ve continued our innovation with a nanotechnology treatment that creates an extraordinarily luxurious, shiny finish on these Dekton colors,” says Eduardo Cosentino, EVP Global Sales for Csoentino Group and CEO of Cosentino North America. “We’re truly honored for Dekton® XGloss Halo and Dekton® XGloss Spectra to be recognized as one of the very best in kitchen design by a publication so esteemed by the design community around the globe.” Dekton® XGloss Halo, Spectra, and their fellow AD Great Design Winners from the kitchen category will be featured in the November 2017 issue of Architectural Digest, with expanded coverage online and across the Architectural Digest social media platforms.

The space is designed to be the true heart of the home; breakfast at the coffee bar and barstool area, a work station or venue to host lunches, and a perfect spot to enjoy an evening glass of wine before or after dinner. Denise used Silestone Merope on the bar and island and new Silestone Eternal Series Calacatta Gold on the counters around the cabinet walls.

What about this color family spoke to you? How did you select and use these different colors without being overwhelming? Layering multiple shades of plum and lavender and using Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Color of the Year, Shadow, allowed this space to have drama and a palette that serves everyone. When using color, this palette makes everyone look beautiful in a way that doesn’t feel either masculine or feminine. It’s for everyone. Staying within the same color family keeps the color from feeling overwhelming. Also it works perfectly with the greenery outdoors to keep it from feeling too formal or stuffy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] [post_title] => Trendspotter: Denise McGaha’s Lilac kitchen with Silestone® Eternal series [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => trendspotter-denise-mcgahas-lilac-kitchen-with-silestone-eternal-series [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-09-28 00:00:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-09-28 00:00:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.cosentino.com/trendspotter-denise-mcgahas-lilac-kitchen-with-silestone-eternal-series/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Array ( [0] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 68 [name] => C & Architecture [slug] => c-architecture [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 68 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 2 [filter] => raw ) [1] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 71 [name] => News [slug] => news [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 71 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 468 [filter] => raw ) ) WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68522 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2017-09-27 00:00:00 [post_date_gmt] => 2017-09-27 00:00:00 [post_content] => [av_one_half first min_height='' vertical_alignment='' space='' custom_margin='' margin='0px' padding='0px' border='' border_color='' radius='0px' background_color='' src='' background_position='top left' background_repeat='no-repeat'] [av_image src='https://www.cosentino.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/DEMO-Silestone-Tops-On-Top-BASE-210x297-Casual-1-1448x2048.jpg' attachment='3767' attachment_size='large' align='center' animation='no-animation' styling='' hover='' link='' target='' caption='' font_size='' appearance='' overlay_opacity='0.4' overlay_color='#000000' overlay_text_color='#ffffff' custom_class=''][/av_image] [/av_one_half] [av_one_half min_height='' vertical_alignment='' space='' custom_margin='' margin='0px' padding='0px' border='' border_color='' radius='0px' background_color='' src='' background_position='top left' background_repeat='no-repeat'] [av_image src='https://www.cosentino.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Silestone-Tops-On-Top-Dabiz-Muñoz-1448x2048.jpg' attachment='3766' attachment_size='large' align='center' animation='no-animation' styling='' hover='' link='' target='' caption='' font_size='' appearance='' overlay_opacity='0.4' overlay_color='#000000' overlay_text_color='#ffffff' custom_class=''][/av_image] [/av_one_half] [av_one_full first min_height='' vertical_alignment='' space='' custom_margin='' margin='0px' padding='0px' border='' border_color='' radius='0px' background_color='' src='' background_position='top left' background_repeat='no-repeat'] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] Silestone® presents the evolution of their advertising campaign Tops on Top, with a new image of supermodel and brand ambassador Cindy Crawford; and incorporates Michelin-star chef David Muñoz as the face of their online campaign.

Created from a sophisticated blend of inorganic materials using an innovative ultra-compaction process, Dekton® has a high resistance to UV rays, scratches, stains and thermal shock. These benefits ensure its surfaces are durable and very easy to maintain, offering a wealth of possibilities for both internal and external projects, including flooring, façades, wall cladding and worktops. DEKTON® OPERA: Inspired by the current desire for marble interiors, Opera takes inspiration from elegant Italian Carrara marble and boasts the extraordinary new soft touch finish from Dekton®, Velvet Texture. Simple, light grey veining adds depth and interest to the creamy white surface for a  classic understated finish.   DEKTON® NATURA: Replicating the quintessential style of marble with soft grey veining accentuating the classic white surface, Natura also offers a lustrous polished finish. With all the benefits of Dekton®’s technical characteristics, the striking colour’s reflective nature is due to the nano-technological treatment and mechanical polishing process it undergoes, resulting in a crystal-like shine. Combined with the strength and stain resistance of Dekton®, the resulting product provides exceptional performance paired with unique characteristics. This includes water repellent properties, ensuring an impressive resistance to stains. The ‘Nanocoating Process’ and mechanical polishing also enhances Dekton®’s colour.

The range was a collaboration with architect and designer, Daniel Germani that will furnish architectural or decorative projects with strength and personality. Dekton® Industrial collection is comprised of three new shades, Nilium, Radium and Orix as well as the award-winning Dekton® Trilium (launched commercially in 2016). Nilium, Radium and Trilium are based on the look of aged, rusted metals with irregular, organic patterns, giving a hybrid appearance taken from weather-worn and exotic natural stone. Orix represents the degradation of cement and the biological transformation of stone. Trilium: Dekton® Trilium offers a mixture of colours inspired by volcanic rock, with intense accents of black and grey. Made using up to 80% recycled materials, Trilium was created in 2016, becoming the first ecological Dekton® colour. Radium: Dekton® Radium represents a sheet of rusted, acid-washed steel, creating a look that perfectly combines the warm expression of orangey brown tones with the coldness of blue and green hues. Made using sustainable production methods, Dekton® Radium is manufactured using 80% recycled material. Nilium: Dekton® Nilium forms the minimalist element of the Industrial colour collection. Inspired by metal, Dekton® Nilium offers a subtle blend of silver and white colours. The delicate appearance of warm colours represents the beginning of the oxidation process. Orix: Dekton® Orix takes inspiration from eroded cement; an industrial appearance characterised as being steely, cold and broken. Representing a dichotomy between the old and the new, the colour combination is based on different tones of grey, blue and green.

This new format aims to post its Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) using the language and support of the new social media to convey them to a young audience that is committed to sustainability issues. At the presentation, Santiago Alfonso, Global Vice-President for Marketing and Communication of Cosentino Group, along with Lucila García, Subdirector of the SERES Foundation and Cristina Monge, Conversations Director of ECODES, considered the role of companies in mobilising citizens in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The SDG initiative is a universal call by the United Nations to put an end to poverty, protect the planet and ensure that people can live in prosperity and peace. The presentation was organised a few days before the second anniversary of the signing of the SDG, and coincides with the message of the UN to accelerate the pace in order to reach these goals by 2030. Cosentino Group understands Corporate Social Responsibility as an opportunity to imagine the future through sustainability and innovation, placing people at the centre of everything we do", said Alfonso. In this regard, and based on that premise of continuous innovation, the launch of the “InstaReportrepresents a milestone in the manner of communicating and disseminating a companys achievements in the CSR area. The report can be accessed from today in the Cosentino Group Instagram profile (@GrupoCosentino), and new contents and insights will gradually be incorporated during the next few weeks.

The space is designed to be the true heart of the home; breakfast at the coffee bar and barstool area, a work station or venue to host lunches, and a perfect spot to enjoy an evening glass of wine before or after dinner. Denise used Silestone Merope on the bar and island and new Silestone Eternal Series Calacatta Gold on the counters around the cabinet walls. Denise McGaha awnsered several questions about the look and fashion of her Lillac Kitchen design: Who did you have in mind when you designed this space and how do you imagine them using it?  I imagined a family of 5 with children and parents and a few dogs – much like my family.  They would use this space at all times of the day – breakfast (coffee bar and barstool area), during the day (mom or dad could work at the table or host lunches for friends and family) and evening (wine bar for before dinner drinks – access to patio area for outside hors d’oeuvres before dinner inside or vice-versa). [/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] The design element that immediately stands out in your kitchen is the use of a color palette prominently featuring shades of purple. What about this color family spoke to you? How did you select and use these different colors without being overwhelming? Layering multiple shades of plum and lavender and using Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Color of the Year, Shadow, allowed this space to have drama and a palette that serves everyone.  When using color, this palette makes everyone look beautiful in a way that doesn’t feel either masculine or feminine.  It’s for everyone.  Staying within the same color family keeps the color from feeling overwhelming.  Also it works perfectly with the greenery outdoors to keep it from feeling too formal or stuffy. What advice do you have for homeowners using bold color in the kitchen through paint or other materials? Don’t be shy.  Paint is one of the best ways to make a statement and one of the easiest things to change.  It’s a no brainer when designing a space. The design of your space seems especially fitting for entertaining. How did that element influence the design / ambiance you created? This is definitely an entertaining space but even everyday kitchens should allow for entertaining.  Our family deserves everything we offer to guests, and more… The addition of various complementary metallics into the space; both added glamor and excitement, while harmoniously unifying the different design elements. These luxe accents tie back perfectly to the Cosentino countertop on the perimeter, and the beautiful gold veining of the Silestone Calacatta blends perfectly with the metallic tile. What drove your sink and faucet pairing choices? Why multiple sink stations? Do you see that as an important trend in kitchen design? I do!!  I love when others get in the kitchen and work with the chef.  In my own home we all pitch in to work to prepare a meal.  Whether it’s prepping vegetables or washing dishes, everyone can work together and feel part of the action. Do you have any kitchen design tips for homeowners thinking about remodeling or building? Make sure your sinks are large enough!! When you entertain, there are often multiple courses and having room to stack dishes before final clean up while leaving the countertop surfaces clean helps everyone focus on each other and not the large mess in the kitchen!! If you had to put a name to the design style of your room, what would it be and why? Art Deco with a dash of Mid-Century Modern Glam.

The room centers around a fireplace, a feature that traditionally brings people together. The kitchen design, which incorporates products from Cosentino, Kohler and Benjamin Moore, evokes an instinctive feeling of being connected to tribal and historic roots. Steffany and her team used new Silestone Eternal Serena and Marquina in Suede throughout the space. Steffany Hollingsworth answered several questions about the look and function of her kitchen design: Who did you have in mind when you designed this space and how do you imagine them using it? We envisioned a well-traveled couple who enjoys cooking together, entertaining friends and family yet enjoys a leisure existence when home: Enjoying a good sunset, a good book, and hanging out with coffee or a glass of wine in front of the fire. As throughout history and cultures, the fireplace brings people together. Your work often draws on the colors and motifs of the Southwest. Is this something you carried into this kitchen design? While we are based in the Southwest, we really aimed at the design and style of this Kitchen being more "tribal", and cultural-centric, versus one geographic area. We celebrate cultural influence of all kinds, and enjoy weaving their craft, motifs and materials into our work.  We also weave the influences of nature into our work; whether in an inferred or literal way as we believe it nurtures the soul-- something we intend for the interior spaces we design. You use a wide variety of texture, pattern and materials in your design. What advice do you have for homeowners on layering textures and patterns? How do you keep it cohesive? Yes, good observation. This stems out of the above question, in that the material, pattern and textural language with cultural/ tribal derivatives, be it woven (pendants), printed (tiles), or surfaces provide context and narrative to be interpreted. We like to infuse raw with refined, playing both against the other. We strive to provide the sense of authenticity in materials and references. I was so excited by the new Silestone Eternal series. The Serena Suede and Marquina add a cohesive feel, making the transition between raw and refined seamless. Cohesiveness comes with organized direction, careful curating and editing.  It is taking the fewer, strongest elements that contribute to the concept, and seeing how they best play together in a complimentary way. What drove your sink and faucet pairing choices? Why multiple sink stations? Do you see that as an important trend in kitchen design?   We chose the Whitehaven apron sink with the Hayridge design as we loved its uniqueness. The casual aspect of the apron sink and its textural quality lent itself perfectly to our design. The 8 Degree sink was a perfect answer for its shape and simplicity for the bar area. The Simplice faucet style was selected for its soft, organic contemporary lines, and of course the matte black finish aligned perfectly with the palette. We do see multiple sink stations as maintaining a demand, as it distributes overlapping tasks, diverts use traffic and in this case allows one to be primarily used for a beverage station, though it could double as supplemental prep or clean-up area. Do you have any kitchen design tips for homeowners thinking about remodeling or building? Try not to go too trendy, where regret may seep in later... interesting yes, but not "of the moment".  The kitchen is one room where form must take a backseat to function, though that doesn't have to mean compromising on aesthetics.  All of the appliances, the lighting, the durability and maintenance of the surfaces, and the way in which it best supports its use (often multiple uses- entertaining, meal preparation, and family gathering among them) for efficiency and ease. If you had to put a name to the design style of your room, what would it be and why? We named our design "Tribal Instincts", as we wanted to create a Kitchen that evoked a more casual, natural, contemporary-yet-nurturing space often seen in desert environments across the globe.  We strove to convey a lifestyle experience -- one that is savvy, comfortable and lived fully.  We gave a Smokey undertone to an otherwise warm room and then further carried the Smokey theme with the charred wood cladding the refrigerator and hombre smoked finish on the cabinets.

This comprehensive logistics facility, located in the Finnish capital, completes the multinational’s extraordinary presence in the Scandinavian market where it already has Centers in Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Cosentino landed in Sweden for the first time in 2006, in the region of Northern Europe, to open the Cosentino Göteborg Center, which offered regular Cosentino product services to the Scandinavian countries. In 2013, the company opened its second distribution centre in the city of Oslo, Norway, thus covering demand in that country, as well as providing services to Iceland. And at the end of 2016, the town of Hedensted in Denmark welcomed the company’s third Center in Scandinavia. Now the new Cosentino Center in Helsinki will cover distribution services in the Nordic country, and will also provide services to the Baltic countries: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The creation of this infrastructure represents a total investment of €850,000 (not counting stock), and provides a total surface area of 2,000m2 for the storage of around 5,000 slabs. Lastly, the Center will start off with a workforce of 11 employees, some of whom will be dedicated to serving the Baltic countries mentioned, raising the Spain-based company’s total employee figure to 52 in the region. According to Pierre Wernlundh, Cosentino’s Managing Director for Scandinavia, “Although the market shares for stone in general are still small in Scandinavia and Baltic, especially if you compare with the south of Europe, we can see a clear trend in this market that shows this type of products are becoming more and more popular. In Cosentino we have a firm commitment with Scandinavia. Cosentino has the best service and distribution network of the industry in this region with 4 Centers, more than 50 employees and 9 trucks to supply and service our clients efficiently. In 2017 we expect to reach more than €20 million  sales in Scandinavia, number that will increase in the coming years. ” [/av_textblock] [av_image src='https://www.cosentino.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Cosentino-Helsinki_©prointerior-Finland_TomAppelroth5-495x400.jpg' attachment='3617' attachment_size='portfolio' align='center' animation='no-animation' styling='' hover='' link='' target='' caption='' font_size='' appearance='' overlay_opacity='0.4' overlay_color='#000000' overlay_text_color='#ffffff' custom_class=''][/av_image] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' custom_class=''] And, adding this opening to the opening in Denmark last year, Cosentino has invested almost €3 million in a little over a year. A demonstration of the relevance of this highly prosperous region of Europe, where the company first landed 11 years ago. With the Helsinki Center, the multinational rounds off its commitment to the region through fixed assets in Scandinavia and maintaining its active policy of geographical diversification and control of its own distribution, consolidating itself as one of the most internationally widespread Spanish companies of the moment.

Her vision: An urban sanctuary. Theresa combined Silestone, Kohler and Benjamin Moore products, infusing traditional and modern influences to create a beautiful and that connects with nature through the open plan and large windows. Theresa utilized colors from the new Silestone Eternal Series, Calacatta Gold and Marquina, as well as Silestone Iconic White. Accessible design was also key in the kitchen; Theresa integrated an ADA-accessible roll-up counter and wider hallways to easily accommodate wheelchairs. Outdoor space and organic materials seem to play a significant role in your kitchen design. Why is marrying indoor and outdoor spaces important to you as a designer? I think it is and always will be important to connect people to the earth, especially in urban environments. It grounds them, positively affects the psyche and forces us to see beyond our manmade worlds and connect to the seasons and the passage of time. I think it inspires us. And do you think it’s a trending element in kitchen design? No - I think it has always been a focus and will continue to be. Your kitchen features strong artistic elements – from the sculptural light fixtures over the island to the art hanging over the wet bar. How did you select colors and materials that both contributed to – and complemented – this artistic tone? Bringing in handmade elements enlivens a space. In this case the 1930s Italian handmade sconces bring texture and interest to the wall. The hanging pendants above the island are wonderfully patterned and perfectly frame the island and the symmetrical floating shelves beyond.  Both light fixtures beautifully complement the balanced, clean lines of the kitchen. I was so excited by the new Silestone Eternal series. I love Marquina; it adds a hit of graphicness to the archway between the two spaces, making the transition particularly engaging. Art is always a reflection of the owners and brings “them” into the space.  In this case the art is made by them as well as collected and inherited. I think it is very important to have objects that surround you that have meaning, connect you to where you come from and have meaning for you today. Every element is important and I decide where to place emphasis by what mood I am creating.  In this project I wanted an environment that would allow space for the client's passions while leaving room for quiet contemplation.  I am interested in finding out what excites my clients so that I can incorporate those interests into their homes; in this kitchen/family room there was dedicated space for books and art.  But also, there is a calm nurturing atmosphere where they can create new ideas in their work and where the young family gathers. I started with Silestone Pear Jasmine for the countertops here because of its freshness, it really contributes to the tranquil nature of the space. My work is client driven, I don't have a formula and I tailor unique, individual, concepts to reflect their interesting lives. Balance and symmetry are key components in this design. Can you tell us how you went about achieving this effect? This is indeed a very balanced design.  Centre view of island with balance floating open shelves on either side of the stove framed by the textured pattern of the matching light fixtures.  A discordant element which is not symmetrical but rather organic is the installation of the art in the bar area.  I purposely installed them this way because it creates tension and interest.   Similarly, the accessories throughout are installed with this in mind.  Too much symmetry can dull a space. Your color palette embraces contrast. What are your tips for homeowners looking to create a contrasting color palette in their own kitchens? Take inspiration from art - Franz Klein is a great example. While the Marquina archway creates a tonal contrast within the space; the Pearl Jasmine countertop complements the Calacatta Gold on the back wall with more subtlety and nuance. Do you have any kitchen design tips for homeowners thinking about ‘remodeling or building? Don’t be fooled and think you can do it yourself, invest and hire a qualified architect and interior designer. It will save you time, money, stress and ensure that your space functions with style that reflects you. You will have a comprehensive drawing package that is the essential component for the team.  And, project management by your professionals is essential.

In collaboration with Cosentino, Kohler and Benjamin Moore, Cheryl’s coastal aesthetic came to life with her Greenhouse Kitchen: a tranquil environment that embraces the outdoors and encourages relaxation. Here, functionality takes center stage with easy access to home gardening, a prep zone for canning fruit and vegetables, wide aisles for aging in place, and wine storage awash in brilliant light. With different kitchen zones in mind, Cheryl used four colors from Cosentino to help define space and ensure maximum durability: Charcoal Soapstone and Calacatta Gold from the Silestone Eternal Collection, Silestone Iconic White, and Dekton Aldem.

The Eduarda Justo Foundation's Forums of the Future are an initiative which aims to analyse the major trends building the world of the future through conferences and discussions. This time, thanks to the participation of doctor and NASA astronaut, Ellen Baker, the focus has been placed on “space exploration”. Having participated in three space missions and spent more than 686 hours in space, Ellen Baker hosted an impressive and interesting conference to a packed-out audience of more than 175 people in the main auditorium at Cosentino’s headquarters in Cantoria, Almeria. Under the slogan Living and Working in Space”, Baker discussed different themes such as the lack of gravity, cosmic rays, research carried out thus far into farming in space and eating fresh food on long missions that are currently being planned or the difficulty astronauts have carrying out even the simplest of physiological functions. Additionally, she explained the challenges faced by NASA for their return to the moon without repeating the mistakes of the past, as well for the subsequent journey to Mars. Saying “we live on a unique, beautiful and fragile planet”, Ellen Baker talked about science and about the importance of scientific development for human advancement. Ellen Baker said: “We are faced by many serious challenges and unfortunate realities; nevertheless, we have the tools and knowledge necessary to solve a lot of our daily problems. There are so many possibilities for progress, limited only by our imaginations, and by our inability to act and to work together for the common good. We need to move forward, create associations and collaborate. Together we can protect our planet, protect humanity and help it to flourish.” Yesterday’s event was presented and led by the Director of the Eduarda Justo Foundation, Juan Martínez-Barea, who stressed that “as children, many of us, dream of becoming astronauts, perhaps because space is the final frontier and astronauts are the ultimate explorers. Before the conference, Ellen Baker, accompanied by esteemed astrophysicist John Beckman and by members of the Board of Trustees of the Eduarda Justo Foundation and Cosentino, visited the Cosentino industrial park, stopping at the production factories of the innovative surfaces Dekton® and Silestone®. The distinguished astronaut had the chance to see first-hand the work, innovation and research behind the two leading materials in the world of architecture and design. Of her visit, Ellen Baker had this to say: “I was impressed by the factory, the company and above all by the workers, for their training, youth and enthusiasm.

Awash in white with bright pops of color, Coco and her husband James Conran designed and managed the entire project to create a space that was both contemporary and family friendly. Rocha explains how much she loves the large open plan kitchen, living and dining space and emphasizes the crucial role of materials in this transformation; “We kept the design simple yet contemporary…Materials were really crucial in bringing the whole look together.” After a total gut-renovation of the 1980s home, the kitchen, living and dining space now open up into one giant 50-foot long room with a wall of windows that wash the space in natural light.

Silestone® surfaces are highly stain, impact and scratch resistant as well as having a low liquid absorption rate. For Rocha, this means she doesn’t have to compromise style for functionality. The island serves as a hardworking prep zone and gathering spot, and also helps separate the kitchen space from the adjacent living room.

In the dining room, a copper theme: Her favorite is the AllModern copper chandelier that “looks like some Cold War-era satellite”, Coco says. The kitchen is accented with a polished chrome faucet and stainless-steel appliances. With a huge passion for both color and Pop Art, Coco selected fun, statement-making pieces to bring personality into the space. To create a strong design cohesion between the kitchen and living room, the couple used Silestone® White North – the same used for their kitchen countertops – as the material for the fireplace surround.

Dekton®’s technical properties make it the perfect choice for use in bathrooms, one of the most important spaces which is most central to the design of homes, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, airports, etc. Dekton® offers reduced water absorption thanks to its low porosity, high stain resistance which makes its day-to-day maintenance easier, and it can be produced in large format units (up to 320cm x 144cm), which considerably reduce the number of visible joints and make it possible to create features such as sinks and XXL floor and wall units. In 2017, Cosentino launched five sink models created using Dekton® onto the market: Equilibrium, Nova, Reflection, Silence and Simplicity. Another of Cosentino’s major recent launches in this sector was the HLine collection, which is easy to clean and therefore specifically aimed at the hospitality sector. HLine offers a sink solution in the form of a Dekton® countertop and a ceramic sink. Texture and colour are the stars of the show, thanks to this revolutionary surface which offers a variety of exclusive finishes, such as industrial, cement, untreated wood and natural stone. The Cosentino bathroom collection allows architects and designers to transform bathrooms into a unique, remarkable, and instantly captivating space.

[post_content] => The Silestone Institute, part of the Cosentino Group, has worked with leading experts to produce an insightful report which predicts the characteristics of the kitchen of the future.  The report, entitled ‘Global Kitchen: the home kitchen in the era of globalisation’ is the result of a collaboration with 17 distinguished experts from the worlds of design, cooking, domestic technology, sociology, nutrition and sustainability.  In addition, a survey carried out in over 800 kitchen studios across the world provides data on the importance consumers afford to this room in their homes. Key experts included chefs Andoi Luis Aduriz (**Michelin in Mugaritz), Gaston Acurio, Harvard, anthropologist, Richard Wrangham, architect Piero Lissoni and industrial designer Patricia Moore. Santiago Alfonso, marketing vice president for the Cosentino Group says, “Global Kitchen is an international project providing valuable insights into the kitchen of the future and aims to become an essential reference tool for professionals and consumers.  It creates the opportunity for multidisciplinary reflection to analyse the effect of globalisation on kitchen architecture and design, to determine how this space will develop over the next 25 years.” Key predictions in the Global Kitchen report include: Forecasting and Sales Experts’ Opinions on the Future of the Home Kitchen 842 kitchen professionals from eight countries (Australia, Brazil, Spain, United Kingdom, United States, Italy, Portugal and Sweden) took part in a survey to supplement the Global Kitchen Report.  The report assesses the evolution of kitchen space in terms of use, design and equipment taking into account the respondents’ proximity and direct contact with the end user, as well as their experience and knowledge of the sector.

TOPA Sukaldería is located in the heart of San Sebastián´s Gros district, and occupies a total space of 496 m2, divided over two floors. The ground floor is occupied by the kitchen and the dining lounge, while the bathrooms are located in the basement. Clarity of space, contrasts, an upbeat, cosy environment, myriad ways of welcoming customers, high-quality decorative and architectural products, and the use of recycled materials are just some of the key concepts that define this project. The ultra-compact surface Dekton® by Cosentino, and the ecological Silestone® Eco Line range were chosen for this design. More than 400 m2 of Cosentino products were used in this inspirational culinary project.

Following this strategy, the multinational has, to date, already implemented almost 45% of its 2016-2019 Investment Plan. More specifically, in 2016, Cosentino began investing a total of 170 million euros within the Plan’s framework which has a total budget of 380 million euros, of which almost 80% represent production investment aimed towards growth as well as product and channel diversification, while the rest represents commercial investments aimed at maintaining the Group’s international expansion process through the acquisition of new assets. This investment-based approach, which aims to consolidate Cosentino’s position as a leader and lay the foundations of the company’s future model, is largely possible due to the Group’s financial strength, as shown by the audited data from the 2016 fiscal year. Last year, this multinational from Almeria, Spain achieved a total of 834 million euros in Consolidated Turnover which represents an increase of over 14% compared to 2015. Regarding the EBITDA, the company achieved a result of 117 million euros in 2016, reflecting growth of 16.5% compared to the previous year. In this case, the negative impact of the exchange rates was even greater, and had the exchange rates remained constant from 2015 the corresponding growth rate would have been 23%. Lastly, Net Benefit showed a very positive evolution, rising to 43.3 million euros; this represents a very high increase compared to 2015 when the Group’s Net Benefit was 14.8 million euros. Meanwhile, the total number of Group employees at the end of the 2016 fiscal year exceeded 3,600 worldwide, and as planned according to Cosentino’s mission for training and the generation of opportunities and employment. At the time of writing, this number had already risen to 3,750 employees. Last year, Cosentino created almost 300 new jobs.

Qatar, Manhattan and Vienna: new Dekton XGloss colours, new ultra-glossy colours

Qatar, Manhattan and Vienna are three new tones that can take us from the most far-flung parts of the world to business streets of New York. Within the Dekton® CGloss family, Qatar, Manhattan and Vienna are the cornerstones of a new collection called XGloss Basiq, where it can be seen that simple background colours and finishes are not incompatible with beauty and functionality. Qatar has a glossy beige tone, in turn reminiscent of the serenity of sand and the beauty of the desert. Qatar is a sober colour, with a naturalness and warmth that combine perfectly with all types of materials. Manhattan is deep, luminous grey colour. Under the surface there is the essence of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cement. This colour provides a modern and functional air, and it is perfect for creating appealing contrast with other tones and textures. Vienna offers a grainy, glossy white tone that brings clarity and breadth to any space. It is ideal for building spaces full of light, timeless and weightless.

Fossil and Nayla, two new colours with natural charm

Fossil and Nayla are here to take us on a visual journey to the beginning of time. Part of the Dekton® Natural collection, Fossil and Nayla respond to the current tendency to evoke the beauty inherent in nature and reclaim the capricious patterns of natural stone. Fossil is a textured mottled grey rock with fossilised organisms that transports us to ancient times. The mottled pattern gives naturalness to any space, bringing not only beauty but also singularity and personality. Nayla is defined as a granulated matt white colour that brings clarity and breadth to any decorative environment. Nayla is ideal for building subtle projects, filled with light and where aesthetic honesty is a banner.

Qatar, Manhattan y Vienna: nuevos colores Dekton XGloss, nuevos colores ultrabrillantes

Qatar, Manhattan y Vienna suponen tres nuevas tonalidades capaces de transportarnos desde los lugares más inexplorados de la tierra hasta las calles más concurridas de la Gran Manzana de Nueva York. Dentro de la familia Dekton® XGloss, Qatar, Manhattan y Vienna inauguran una nueva colección denominada XGloss Basiq, donde se demuestra que los fondos y acabados sencillos no están reñidos con la belleza y la funcionalidad. Qatar regala una tonalidad beige brillante que rememora a su vez la serenidad de la arena y la belleza de las tierras desérticas. Qatar es un color sobrio que con naturalidad y calidez es perfecto para combinar con todo tipo de materiales. Manhattan muestra un color gris profundo y luminoso. Bajo su superficie late la esencia del cemento más vibrante y cosmopolita. Este color que aporta un aire moderno y funcional, es perfecto para crear llamativos contrastes con otras tonalidades y texturas. Vienna ofrece una tonalidad blanca granulada brillante que aporta claridad y amplitud a cualquier espacio. Vienna es ideal para construir ambientes llenos de luz, atemporales y livianos.

Fossil y Nayla, dos nuevos colores con encanto natural

Fossil y Nayla llegan para situarnos visualmente en el inicio de los tiempos. Incorporados a la colección Dekton® Natural, Fossil y Nayla atienden a esa tendencia actual que apuesta por evocar la belleza propia de la naturaleza y por reivindicar los bocetos caprichosos que definen a la piedra natural. Fossil supone una roca gris veteada texturizada con organismos fosilizados que nos trasladan a épocas remotas. El dibujo de vetas instaura naturalidad a cualquier espacio, dotándolo no sólo de belleza sino también de singularidad y personalidad. Nayla se define como un blanco granulado mate que aporta claridad y amplitud a cualquier ambiente decorativo. Nayla es ideal para construir proyectos sutiles, llenos de luz y donde la honestidad estética sea una bandera.

This project is result of the collaboration started three years ago between Cosentino and the ceramic atelier and Spanish design studio lead by Xavier Mañosa. Dektonclay can be visited during the 15th edition of Milan Design Week. For this new Dekton® project, Xavier Mañosa explores the concept of the Kitchen, creating a collection of pieces that gathers cooking and eating through one material. Attracted by the idea of using the same material in every part of the kitchen, he presents a collection of table and kitchenware, furniture pieces and even a kitchen itself. The ovens, the kitchen top, the structure and the handles are created with Dekton®, modelling, pressing, extruding, and firing, pushing the malleability of the material in different artisanal processes, all together with the easy but decisive strength of the fire coming from the stove. The aim of the ceramist was to discover new ways of working with Dekton®, to find out how the material behaved under different temperatures or conditions of density; to find out how versatile Dekton® could be; and the different uses to which it could be subjected.

Dektonclay combines Apparatu’s crafted pieces with the industrially produced ultracompact surface in its black colour Spectra XGloss. Xavier Mañosa: “I chose this Dekton® XGloss finish specifically because its spectacular glossy surface contrasts with the matte finish of the moulded pieces that serve as a support, thus creating a very powerful glossy/matte visual effect.” PR_DEKTONCLAY [post_title] => Dektonclay by Cosentino & Apparatu [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => dektonclay-by-cosentino-apparatu-2 [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-04-03 00:00:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-04-03 00:00:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.cosentino.com/dektonclay-by-cosentino-apparatu-2/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Array ( [0] => WP_Term Object ( [term_id] => 71 [name] => News [slug] => news [term_group] => 0 [term_taxonomy_id] => 71 [taxonomy] => category [description] => [parent] => 0 [count] => 468 [filter] => raw ) ) WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68481 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2017-04-02 00:00:00 [post_date_gmt] => 2017-04-02 00:00:00 [post_content] =>

Cosentino and Riva 1920, firm specialized in the production of solid wood furniture, present together the project “Madera Meets Dekton®”, created by the recognized designer Daniel Germani. “Madera Meets Dekton®”, is a singular and spectacular timeless credenza. (2.5m long x 0.7m high x 0.46m wide). The body of Madera is a very elegant frame built with the ultra-compact surface Dekton® in its high polished black hue Spectra XGloss. Almost in a loving gesture, this frame is embraced by two organic pieces of solid American walnut carved to perfection by the master woodworkers at Riva1920.     “Madera Meets Dekton®” reinterprets the essence of wood through its combination with Dekton®, a material that thanks to its nature and technology offers a unique look and functionality for design and architectural applications.   Daniel Germani: “I love wood’s organic texture, shape shifting abilities and perfect imperfections. “Madera Meets Dekton®” happened during a visit to Riva 1920’s compound… walking the shop with Maurizio and learning about all the processes and techniques was an incredible experience and one that sparked a fire in my head. In that moment, the softness and malleability of the wood and the hard, resilient almost stubborn nature of Dekton® made perfect sense together… almost like a hug or an embrace. The rest is history. At the end, I am so proud that Cosentino and Riva 1920 allowed me to design, play and push the limits of the materials…this is just the beginning because the possibilities are endless.”     “Madera Meets Dekton®” reflects handcraft combined with innovation and design linked to technology. It is also the result of an extensive research about raw materials, respect for the environment, innovative creative processes and work done with the utmost quality.

En este nuevo proyecto con Dekton®, Xavier Mañosa explora el concepto de la cocina, creando una colección de piezas que reúnen la cocina y el comedor a través de un material. Atraído por esta idea de utilizar un mismo material en cada parte de la cocina, presenta una colección de vajilla y de utensilios de cocina, piezas de mobiliario e incluso una cocina misma. Los fuegos, la encimera de cocina, la estructura y los mangos están creados con Dekton®, el cual ha sido modelado, prensado y horneado, empujando la maleabilidad del material en procesos artesanales diferentes, y todo ello con la sencilla, pero decisiva fuerza del fuego que sale del fogón. El objeto del ceramista era descubrir nuevas maneras de trabajar con Dekton®, cómo se comporta bajo diferentes temperaturas o condiciones de densidad, su versatilidad y los diferentes usos a los que se puede someter. Dektonclay combina las piezas artesanales de Apparatu con la superficie ultracompacta Dekton®, producida industrialmente en su color Spectra XGloss. Xavier Mañosa: “elegí este acabado de Dekton® porque su espectacular superficie brillante contrasta con el acabado mate de las piezas moldeadas que sirven de soporte, creando un efecto visual brillo/mate muy poderoso.”.

These launches mean that Cosentino now has its own facilities in half of the 50 American States. Another differentiating asset in the Cosentino distribution model, the "City" showroom concept, is also the star of this expansion as Cosentino already counts three of these showrooms in New York, Toronto and the most recent one of Montreal, which will have its official opening in the coming weeks.  In addition, two other Cosentino City’s will open, one in San Francisco (April) and anothe one in Miami (July). This presence with its own assets is completed with two distribution hubs and twelve surface elaboration and transformation plants. This is also going hand in hand with growth in the number of employees to over 1,200 employees in the USA and Canada by the end of this year. As a result of this high implementation and in order to attend the company’s plan for future growth, the headquarters of its subsidiary "Cosentino North America" will be located in Miami since mid 2017, and not anymore in Houston. This strategic decision will bring greater efficiency to the management of the North American market, as well as better coordination both with the Group’s headquarters in Almeria and with the rest of the continent.

From today until Sunday, a total of 200 delegates will combine training and direct knowledge of the latest developments in the Spanish multinational with different leisure activities.

Over the weekend, the Cosentino clients can enjoy golf lessons or a guided tour of the Historic Quarter of the capital and the Alcazaba. This Convention is part of the company’s strategy of consolidation for the Iberian market, which currently has 20 “Cosentino Centres”, 18 in Spain and 2 in Portugal. In the case of Spain, and after a period of recession during the financial crisis, over the past two years the company has returned to growth. A reflection of this reactivation and Cosentino's commitment to its home country, is the recent inauguration of the Cosentino City in Madrid. The space has been a great success, receiving over 1,000 visitors in the three weeks since it was opened at the end of February. Francisco Martínez-Cosentino stated:"Cosentino's total compromise to continue this growth path together with our stonemason customers who are essential for us". And he remarked "the need to prioritize work safety as key aspect to guarantee future sustainability of jobs and business in this sector".

This gastronomic project is led by Abel Matutes Prats and Manuel Campos Guallar, and includes as partners and ambassadors sportsmen Rafa Nadal and Pau Gasol and singer Enrique Iglesias. This time, the collaboration takes place in the project's first international outing: TATEL Miami, officially opened on Monday. TATEL Miami will be part of the Ritz Carton South hotel complex, it will open at 1669 Collins Avenue in the heart of the city in Miami's prestigious South Beach neighbourhood. TATEL Miami follows the same concept in design and gastronomic terms as the Madrid venue, which opened on Paseo de la Castellana in 2015. In terms of design, the interior design and décor are the work of Diego Gronda’s studio, based in Madrid. Using their experience in global projects, Studio Gronda has successfully exported the same iconic Spanish restaurant design to Miami. Cosentino has collaborated  with the design and décor of the Miami restaurant, in the same way as they did with TATEL Madrid. TATEL Miami makes use of some 600 m2 of Cosentino products in flooring, walls, counters, kitchen worktops, bathroom surfaces, etc. The use of the revolutionary ultracompact surface Dekton®, in a range of different colours such as Borea, Kelya, Vegha and Halo stands out, as well as Sensa® granite worktops, in the Amelia Ridge shade, and lastly Crema Marfil marble. Monday night TATEL Miami held its opening gala, a glamorous event attended by many celebrities and not missed by Rafa Nadal and Enrique Iglesias, partners Abel Matutes Prats and Manuel Campos and designer Diego Gronda.

Cosentino opened yesterday Spain’s first Cosentino City in Madrid. As of today the Spanish multinational's new showroom, found at no. 116 Paseo de la Castellana, will be open to architects, planners, designers, interior designers and final consumers as an information and personal assistance centre, and an integral space to see first hand the group’s wide range of brands and products. With 1,000 m2 of surfaces and a €1.2m investment, Cosentino City Madrid is Spain’s answer to the company’s integral exposition space concept, found at the centre of some of the world’s largest cities, and the fruit of four years’ work. Madrid is furthering this work by adding to the existing Cosentino City Centres spread across the world.

Madrid’s “City“, is spread over three floors or levels.  The ground floor and part of the first floor will house the showroom, workshops and the training room, as well as the exposition and cooking demonstration areas which were created in collaboration with Miele. This “City” was designed by Cosentino’s design team alongside the renowned Valencian firm Cul de Sac. Rocío Arjona and Pilar María Rubio will be the team responsible for the new showroom in Spain's capital city.

Last night Cosentino held an opening event in Madrid attended by many clients and partner companies, from marble dealers, kitchen and bathroom showrooms, architecture firms and major account holders, to a variety of institutional representatives from the business and economics world, and from the media.  The event, attended by a significant portion of the company’s Executive Team and managers, was hosted by Almerian journalist Isabel Jiménez and treated to a special performance by singer Antonio Orozco.

"The company is facing a very important milestone, not only have we introduced this concept in Spain, which is already working successfully in six different countries around the world, but we also intend for it to become the flagship and Cosentinos centre of operations in the capital. In fact, last nights event will be the first of several that will take place around the opening, given that we want our customers, as well as other groups we do business with, to really experience these facilities first hand" , concludes Eduardo Martínez-Cosentino Ramos, the Group’s Sales Director for Iberia.

We were given a brilliant welcome from Francisco, Santiago and all the employees who came, they really made us feel at home. Now it´s our turn to make sure they feel equally at home during the tournament in the Caja Mágica.

Let´s hope that this marvellous relationship lasts for many years and that together we can win game, set and match”. Santiago Alfonso, Marketing and Communications Director at Cosentino, also expressed his satisfaction after the meeting: “Cosentino will keep backing the Mutua Madrid Open tournament as Spain´s major tennis event, where the best players of the tennis world, like our own brand ambassador Rafael Nadal, will appear.

The Eternal Collection is presented for the first time  on the 10th of January at the US kitchen show  KBIS 2017 in Orlando, and on the 16th of January at the German kitchen show Living Kitchen in Cologne.

Silestone® Eternal is a dazzling, new range of colours which pay homage to the most sought-after, exotic marbles in the natural stone sector. Aesthetics and functionality are fused together in a proposal designed for even the most demanding projects. Eternal Calacatta Gold. A colour made up of a white background through which elegant, wide grey highlights are interspersed with unexpected golden glints. Eternal Calacatta Gold, with its eternal, distinguished appearance, pays homage to a marble which has been held in high esteem since ancient times.

Eternal Statuario. Inspired by the classic Italian Carrara marble, Eternal Statuario has a white surface with very soft, sparkling highlights in a shade of grey. Colour and harmony are fused in a background that stands out for its remarkable sense of depth.

Charcoal Soapstone. Inspired by the popular "soap stone", this colour has a blue-grey finish with powerful, grey highlights. A spectacular creation, characterised by its rotundity, depth and sense of movement.

Pearl Jasmine. Inspired by White Macaubas marble, Pearl Jasmine offers a marbled, white background with interwoven grey waves and highlights. Pure aesthetics, presided over by a style of natural, timeless exquisiteness. (Pearl Jasmine colour is only available for the US market).

Eternal Serena. A finish of grey stone with fine, gentle, white lines drawn through to its depths. The subtlety and softness of nature define this distinguished proposal.

Eternal Marquina. Evocative of the beautiful, Spanish Black Marquina marble, this creation presents an intense, black background with convincing, intense, white details and highlights which rise to the surface.

Silestone® Eternal is a unique collection which is based on a commitment to the beauty and timeless naturalness of authentic, historical materials, of which marble is a prime example. The Eternal Collection is the first Silestone® Collection to be released on the market manufactured with N-Boost technology. Silestone® N-Boost achieves a greater intensity of colour and an extraordinary surface brightness, and makes the cleaning and maintenance of Silestone® easier than ever, thanks to the water repellent property of the material.

Silestone® N-Boost is a technologically advanced process for Silestone® quartz surfaces, which enhances further still the excellent technical and aesthetic features of the material.

Cosentino is revolutionising again the field of quartz surfaces with an innovative new technological development called Silestone® N-Boost.

Todos ellos tuvieron la oportunidad de conocer de la mano del Director de Producto e Innovación de Cosentino, Valentín Tijeras, las novedades de la superficie ultracompacta Dekton® y sus oportunidades para proyectos de cualquier magnitud.

Uno de los puntos más destacados de la jornada fue la exposición sobre las excelentes características técnicas y estéticas que ofrece la colección de superficies pulidas y de alta tecnología XGloss de Dekton®.

El espacio estuvo ambientado con diferentes aplicaciones de Dekton®, entre las que destacaban magníficas tablas elaboradas en gran formato y en diversos colores del material. El exitoso evento estuvo presidido por el Director de Cosentino Almería, Antonio José Gutiérrez, y el Director de la Zona Sur de Cosentino, Juan Ignacio Ávalos.

Cosentino apoya la iniciativa Factor Diseño, una alianza de doce empresas españolas cuyo objetivo es promover e incrementar la utilización del diseño y la innovación como factores productivos claves para la competitividad.

Esta acción, promovida por DIMAD FUNDACIÓN y con el apoyo institucional de la administración madrileña, se ha presentado hoy en el marco de la V Bienal Iberoamericana de Diseño que se celebra en las instalaciones de la Central del Matadero de Madrid.

Las doce compañías, de distintos sectores empresariales, han formado una declaración como factor esencial de la nueva cultura empresarial del siglo XXI. Todas estas empresas se unen así con DIMAD en la idea común de fomentar el diseño como valor social, económico y cultural al servicio de la sociedad.
