Cosentino at the 2018 Interior Design Show in Toronto
January 26, 2018
The 2018 Interior Design Show took place in Toronto from January 18-21, 2018. During the show, Cosentino launched new colours from their Silestone and Dekton surface lines, displayed their Dekton custom inkjet capabilities and was recognized for the third consecutive year for their award-winning exhibit, earning the first place IDS Booth Award in the 601-sq. ft. and above category.
During the IDS Opening Night Party, Cosentino held a V.I.P. event in their booth for valued customers, designers and members of the media. The event featured two models who were body painted to resemble new colours from the Dekton Industrial Collection. The activation enticed guests to visit the booth to preview the long-awaited collection.
The following day, Trade Day, Cosentino welcomed the architecture and design community to preview the latest colour offerings from Dekton and Silestone.
Following the tremendous success of the Silestone Eternal Collection launched last year at IDS Toronto, five new colours in the collection were displayed as an exclusive preview during the 2018 show. The new hues offer a modern interpretation of the most sought-after marbles and stones, coupled with the latest technological advancements only Silestone can offer. The five new colours, which bring the collection to a total of ten colourways, include: Bianco Calacatta, Classic Calacatta, Eternal Desert Silver, Eternal Emperador, and Eternal Marfil. These new hues will be available at Cosentino City locations and Cosentino Centres across Canada at the end of the first quarter.
Additionally, four new striking Dekton colours (Fossil, Kira, Nayla, and Vienna) were also launched, offering a range of unique dark and light designs boasting excellent technical properties expected of the revolutionary ultra-compact surface brand. The new Dekton colour additions will be available at Cosentino City locations and Cosentino Centres across Canada at the end of the first quarter. Dekton’s new Industrial Collection designed by Daniel Germani was also on display, generating interest for its unique characteristics inspired by the look of aged, rusted metals, organic patterns, and weather-worn exotic natural stone.
Three Dekton prototypes were showcased at the show as well as the brand’s custom inkjet printing technology, demonstrating the high level of design customization capabilities now available in the Canadian market.
During Trade Day, Cosentino was called to the stage for the annual IDS Booth Awards ceremony, winning first place in the 601-sq. ft. and above category. Juried by an esteemed panel of judges, the IDS Booth Awards acknowledge excellence in exhibit design. Cosentino designed the open concept booth at their headquarters in Almeria, Spain. The booth showcased new releases from both ultra-compact Dekton and Silestone natural quartz surfaces. New colours from both brands were shown in large format slabs displayed in a gallery-like setting, allowing show attendees to get an up close and personal look at some the brand’s state-of-the-art surface options.
The booth featured a working bar area with a cascading island topped with Silestone’s Eternal Marquina, an eye-catching black surface with intense white veining reminiscent of natural Marquina stone. A shower display highlighted Cosentino’s custom bathroom options including their sinks and shower bases.
The show continued well into the weekend, opening its doors to consumers. Overall, Cosentino’s presence at IDS Toronto was a complete success with the award-winning booth welcoming thousands of visitors during the four-day event.
