Art Afternoon Tea at the Rosewood with Silestone
Case Studies, Top Projects
April 1, 2019
The Art Afternoon Tea at ultra-luxury hotel, Rosewood London is using Silestone serving trays designed by Ido Garini of Studio Appétit. Monochrome, marble-inspired Marquina from the Eternal collection was the colour of choice. It perfectly complements the elegant backdrop of the hotel’s Mirror Room.
Made from 90% quartz crystals, Silestone was the ideal choice for the Art Afternoon Tea. With a very low level of porosity, Silestone has a high resistance to stains and scratches and is a hygienic choice for tableware. In recognition of this, Silestone has received NSF certification from NSF International, marking the safety of the product in view of contact with all kinds of food. Marquina also boasts Cosentino’s revolutionary N-Boost technology. This enhances the surface’s already impressively high stain resistance, as well as boosting its glossy finish.
The serving trays by Studio Appétit continue the design studio’s work with the central-London hotel. The studio also worked on the Rosewood’s Rodin Afternoon Tea in collaboration with The British Museum. Inspired by the ground-breaking sculptural work of artist, Auguste Rodin, the afternoon tea offered guests three carefully designed sweet treats. These were served on bespoke tableware designed by the studio. For the Art Afternoon Tea, the Rosewood London’s executive pastry chef, Mark Perkins, has created a colourful collection of pastries. Inspired by the retro art of the 70s and 80s, keen eyes will spot Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s soup can and Malika Favre’s retro twister.
Voted the Best Contemporary Afternoon Tea in the UK for the second year running in 2018, the Rosewood’s Art Afternoon Tea delivers the wow-factor for guests.
Silestone is known for its high profile premium partnerships. This includes the appointment of iconic supermodel and businesswoman, Cindy Crawford as the face of the brand’s ‘Tops on Top’ campaign in 2017. This new collaboration for the Art Afternoon Tea once again shows Cosentino’s presence in the worlds of art, design and food, and the versatility of its innovative product range.
