The world leader in the production and distribution of quartz, natural stone and recycled surfaces, Cosentino will be showcasing the innovative Shaping Silestone project at 100% Design on stand K300 from 19-22 September.
Created by renowned Brazilian designers, Fernando and Humberto Campana, Shaping Silestone is a modular piece of furniture, which combines conceptual and sculptural ideas. Inspired by the idea of a Swiss army knife, the design consists of three main components that transform into a multi-functional furniture unit.
The project is made from the world leading quartz worksurface, Silestone by Cosentino and features the Silestone Integrity sink by Cosentino. The front panels of the design are made from a fine hardwood veneer from a walnut tree that was cut more than a half a century ago.
This is the second time that Cosentino has worked with Fernando and Humberto Campana, two renowned experts in the world of international design. In 2010, they jointly presented the project “Campanas for eCosentino” at Milan Design Week. This project was an artistic interpretation of the recycled surface ECO by Cosentino®, which toured the main European design fairs.
Made from over 90% natural quartz crystals, Silestone by Cosentino worksurfaces have nearly four to five times the flexural strength of granite and a high resistance to scratch, stain and heat. Extremely hygienic, Silestone is available in over 60 distinctive through-body colours with a shade and consistency that is not found in natural stone. With a ten-year warranty, Silestone is the ideal surface for use in a wide variety of applications, including worksurfaces, bar/ reception tops, flooring, splashbacks and wall cladding.
The stylish Silestone Integrity sinks by Cosentino are made from one piece of Silestone, which integrate perfectly with Silestone worktops for a continuous sleek design. Available in a wide range of colours, they arrive in three sizes (37x34x15.5cm, 37x51x15.5cm and 41x51x15.5cm) allowing you to create single, double or one and a half designs.
