“In 2020, we looked beyond the surface – literally and figuratively – to evolve from our traditional offering to comprehensive design solutions for architects, designers, builders and remodelers,” says Massimo Ballucchi, Director of Marketing for Cosentino Americas. “New pre-cut slabs, washbasins and shower trays not only offer a stunning, cohesive aesthetic, but make the design and installation process easier than ever before.”

Dekton Optimma Shower and Bath Cladding Collection
For faster and easier installation of shower and alcove bath wall cladding, Cosentino introduces Dekton Optimma. Crafted from ultra-thin and lightweight 4mm Dekton Slim, the pre-cut and easy-to-manoeuver slabs eliminate the need for fabrication and reduce material waste. Available in a variety of colours including Rem, Aeris and Kelya.
Dekton Gocce Shower Tray Collection
An exciting addition to the Cosentino portfolio is the Dekton Gocce Shower Tray Collection. Manufactured with Dekton Grip+ innovative floor treatment for safety and slip-resistance, the new collection is offered in 19 different hues that allow complete coordination with wall cladding, floors and countertops for a cohesive look.
Silestone Evita Washbasin Collection
The Silestone Evita Washbasin Collection provides visual unity and seamless integration with the surrounding countertop, eliminating joints for easy cleaning and offering the perfect solution to the most demanding projects. Available in three sizes, the collection is offered in White Zeus, Statuario and Desert Silver and a range of custom countertop sizes.
Among the notable new features of the Silestone Loft Series and Silestone Sunlit Days Collection comes the debut of the innovative and exclusive HybriQ+ technology. HybriQ+ is a new production process and major leap in the evolution of Cosentino’s Silestone brand that combines reused raw materials, along with 98 per cent recycled water and 100 per cent renewable energy.
HybriQ+ technology also allows for the significant reduction of crystalline silica in the Silestone surfaces. Instead, a hybrid formula made up of mineral and reused raw materials, such as recycled glass, is used. This new composition provides the material with a modern aesthetic and design features, while maintaining the beauty and quality of Silestone, backed by a 25-year warranty. Additionally, this new generation of Silestone is designed with sustainability and respect for the environment in mind, a tremendous milestone made possible by over three years of intense work by Cosentino Group’s Innovation and Product and Environment teams.
