With the ever-increasing local demand for Cosentino’s leading brand Silestone, the company is now launching Eco by Cosentino®, its environmentally-friendly range, into the Australian market.
Coinciding with this Australian launch, the Cosentino Group is also running a global competition for the public to add a new colour to the Eco by Cosentino® collection. The competition page on Facebook (
facebook.com/silestoneaustralia) opens to a series of designer colours from which users can ‘Like’ their favourites until the end of April. The colours with the most votes will feature in the next Eco by Cosentino® collection, which customers can then purchase.
Gary Isherwood, Area Manager of Cosentino Australia comments, “I’m excited to give Australians the opportunity to have a say in the design of our new collection. We’re really proud of Eco by Cosentino®– it is the ultimate integration of design together with the environment and has won several awards for its unique innovations.”
Eco by Cosentino® is composed of 75% recycled materials such as mirrors salvaged from houses and buildings, glass from windows and bottles, as well as porcelain from china, tiles and sinks. The result is a durable, hygienic, high performance surface against straining, scratching and scorching.
The recycled materials are uniquely blended to achieve a stylish colour palette containing 10 unique colour options. The collection can be easily adapted to both commercial and residential projects with either a polished (providing the surface with a brilliant shine) or leather texture (matte finish).
Gary continues, “We’ve noticed a high demand for environmentally sustainable quartz surfacing in Australia’s kitchens and bathrooms and so we’re confident that Eco by Cosentino® will cause just as much attention as Silestone. The collection caters to the design-oriented yet environmentally-conscious architect, designer and consumer.”
Eco by Cosentino® is available in jumbo slabs of 3250 x 1590 and standard tile sizes are available upon request. Like Cosentino’s Silestone® brand, Eco is most popular for kitchen and bathroom installations, however, it is also ideal for a variety of applications including vanity units, tiles and bar.
