Cosentino partners with Dinner by Design in Calgary
June 8, 2017
Cosentino recently partnered with Dinner by Design Calgary as the event’s Presenting Partner. Hailed as the Met Gala of Calgary, the affair took place on June 1st and 2nd at the Chinese Cultural Centre and welcomed over 750 design enthusiasts over the course of the 2-day event.
This year, Cosentino joined creative forces with three of Calgary’s leading design firms; Rochelle Cote Interior Design, Smitherickson Designs and Dade Loft. Each of the 3 designers created their own unique and elaborate table settings using surface elements from Silestone by Cosentino’s new Eternal Collection, which was launched in the Canadian market earlier this year.
Rochelle Cote Interior Design created a gallery-like dining room which acted as a neutral backdrop for several pieces of elaborate art. The dining area was designed using white hardwoods paired with white walls, and incorporated Silestone’s Eternal Statuario as the table top to create a bright contemporary setting.
Smitherickson Designs chose to work with a slightly darker colour palette, using Eternal Marquina as the backdrop for their tablescape. They chose Eternal Marquina because of the dramatic high contrast in colour and the natural movement that replicates true marquina marble.
Dade Loft also chose to work with Eternal Marquina for its stunning contrast of black and white tones and natural stone appearance. The suede (matte) finish of the surface worked incredibly well with their black stained pavilion and black monkey light installation.
Additionally, a slab of Silestone by Cosentino in Magenta Energy was custom fit to top one of the main bar areas, adding a sophisticated pop of colour to the event space.
This is the second year Cosentino has partnered with Dinner by Design in Calgary. The event brings together international and local design talent to create three-dimensional elaborate dining installations. Open to the public, the event consists of a Cocktail Art party and a gala dinner with a portion of the proceeds raising funds for art and design-focused not for profits including ACAD (Alberta College of Art + Design) and Contemporary Calgary.
