Cosentino partners with Pepper Design and V-ZUG for Melbourne InDesign
August 22, 2014
Some of the Europe’s leading, including quartz surface producer, Cosentino, Swiss kitchen appliance leader V-ZUG and elite kitchen studio, Pepper Design, have come together to deliver a unique ‘Earth, Fire and Steam’ experience at Melbourne InDesign 2014.
Located at Pepper Design’s Richmond showroom at 457 Church Street in Richmond, the collaboration promotes a unique approach to this year’s InDesign theme of ‘Inception’, incorporating key elements of all three design companies.
Gary Isherwood, Area Manager of Cosentino Australia comments, “We’re excited to be working with Pepper Design and V-ZUG at Melbourne InDesign and look forward to creating an experience that reflects the innovative, forward-thinking values of all three companies.”
As part of Melbourne InDesign, Cosentino will also be displaying several slabs of Dekton outside Pepper Design, where a professional street artist will paint over the product, after which the graffiti will be removed to highlight the superior properties of Dekton.
Dekton® is perfect for a multitude of uses, including flooring, stairs and walls, ventilated facades, countertops and work surfaces, providing the flexibility for both commercial and private use. Manufactured with a mixture of sophisticated inorganic, raw materials found in glass, porcelain and natural quartz, the environment has served as the key inspiration behind Dekton®’s design and innovation. Initially available in a range of nature-reflective colours and finishes and in large format, Dekton® allows surfaces and spaces to be designed without any limits or interruptions, where colour and texture flow freely.
On the Friday afternoon of the design festival, Cosentino and V-ZUG will be hosting a VIP event at Pepper Design for key partners, distributors and designers. The VIP event will see Cosentino give guests a preview of its Dekton range, while V-ZUG’s Executive Chef, Felix Halter, will construct a menu created using only the company’s revolutionary Swiss Steam Oven.
Gary continues, “The VIP event helps illustrate the concept of Inception through the combination of Earth, Fire and Steam, with Pepper Design representing the ‘Earth’ component – the ‘bedrock’ where the entire kitchen project is designed and Cosentino reflecting the ‘Fire’ aspect, thanks to Dekton’s 1,200 degree° C baking temperature, and V-ZUG’s Steam Oven as the ‘Steam’ element of the collaboration.”
Conducted over two days, Melbourne InDesign is Australia’s only international design event with a boutique, bespoke and local feel, hosted in locations around the city.
