Choosing the right worktop is essential, it is the finishing touch that can make or break a kitchen design. Available in an array of beautiful colours, the stunning ECO by Cosentino® range of worktops are composed of 75% recycled materials, including mirrors and glass for striking designs that are also extremely durable, with a high stain, scratch and scorch resistance.

The surfaces are available in jumbo slabs of 327x159cm as well as standard tile sizes. The large slabs allow for a higher square footage of material per container, therefore minimising the product’s carbon foot print, and provides a higher yield of material during fabrication, minimising seams and waste. The slabs are available in 1.2cm, 2cm and 3cm thickness to respond to varying market needs.
ECO by Cosentino® is composed of 75% post-industrial and post-consumer recycled raw materials. The materials include: mirrors salvaged from buildings; glass from windows and bottles; granulated glass, porcelain from china, tiles, sinks and industrial furnace residuals from factories in the form of crystallised ashes.
The recycled content is then mixed with other materials including stone waste and is bonded together with a part eco-resin, which contains 22% corn oil. This pioneering resin is the result of a major research and development initiative, and is unmatched in the market today.
