Meet Marc and Dijana, the internationally inspired couple behind MAREDI Design, experts at creating design narratives inspired by their multicultural lifestyle. These creative minds helped a young couple achieve their dream kitchen in this 100-year old home in Milwaukee, WI. From the onset, they sought to preserve the historic character of the home while implementing modern conveniences.

MAREDI was looking for a specific shade of white countertop that would complement the kitchen’s green accents and the custom white oak cabinetry created by local craftsmen. They specified Silestone Statuario to brighten the space, a color which bounced off the natural light. “Thanks to this crisp white countertop, we were able to create a refreshing, cozy and inviting space open to the rest of the house,” said the designers.

Sustainability was a key factor in the design process. “Cosentino stands out when it comes to its environmental practices, including the energy efficient product offerings, and the emphasis on a circular economy. That is a particular aspect that aligns with the ethos of MAREDI Design,” they shaded. Additionally, the duo incorporated vintage pieces, prioritized local artisan and fabricators, and preserved the historical charm of the home.

“Using Cosentino's wide array of product offerings, from Silestone to Dekton, has been the perfect addition to our interior creations,” they shared “not only is the product unique and impressive from a visual and aesthetic perspective, but the environmental aspect of the material and company is a component that makes it our go-to across all projects and continents.”

The French and Serbian husband and wife duo focuses on translating their backgrounds into the American design market in an authentic way. Each material is intentionally and carefully selected, resulting in practical and versatile spaces that reflect their client’s lives and stories.

Joann Kandrac & Kelly Kole, the creative minds behind the Atlanta-based interior design studio Kandrac & Kole Interior Designs, Inc. are experts in all things residential and commercial design. The duo has partnered with Cosentino for many projects in the past and love Silestone for its incredible properties and beauty. For this home in Marietta, GA, their client wanted to create an addition to their residence which included a master bathroom, powder room, large closets and laundry room.

When designing the master bath, the designers wanted it to truly be a space for wellness that exudes luxury and elegance. They achieved just that by pairing Silestone Dor vanity tops with rich brass fixtures and a tiled backsplash. Dor features a silky white backdrop with striking gold veining creating the perfect cohesion with the fixtures and achieving that spa-like sensation they desired.

They also specified Silestone in the color Lyra for the countertops in the laundry room. The color features a wide chromatic range of gray, brown, and beige tones that pair beautifully with the gray cabinetry and allow the unique wallpaper to shine. Additionally, Silestone’s superior technical properties ensure that the beauty of the product will remain untouched through time and use.

When planning the perfect kitchen, worksurfaces have a huge impact on the overall look and feel. As well as strong aesthetics, they also need to be durable, hardwearing and tough enough to cope with everyday wear and tear. That’s why kitchen designers piqu selected Cosentino for this stunning open-plan scheme in a family home in Hayes, near Bromley, Kent. The contrasting surfaces are the perfect mix of light and dark, neutral and dramatic, with all the qualities a busy kitchen and lifestyle needs.

Architect Paul Hasling from Range Property Consultants had created a light-filled kitchen-dining space by removing an internal wall and replacing the window to make it lower and in line with the new worksurface. The owners wanted a modern style with a monochrome colour scheme, choosing 20mm Silestone Kensho for the main worksurfaces and 20mm Sensa by Cosentino Nilo for the island, which includes a mitred leg to the floor and a stunning waterfall finish. They felt that the simplicity of the Kensho contrasted well with the natural beauty of Nilo and the result is a beautiful blend.

The main run of worksurfaces is fabricated from the durable, stain resistant Silestone Kensho from the Zen collection. Available in polished, suede and volcano finishes, this silky surface is a hybrid mineral surface made with HybriQ technology for a truly sustainable solution. This is because this high-performance blend of premium minerals is produced through a sustainable manufacturing process with 99% recycled water and 100% electric energy from renewable sources. The sink area includes integrated drainer grooves for a seamless look and the overall effect is one of calm and simplicity.

For the long, linear island complete with bar stools for casual dining, Sensa Nilo is darkly dramatic and creates the perfect contrast. Part of the Sensa Premium collection, this Brazilian granite features a dark grey background over which striking faded grey veins allow for a swirling sensation of movement over the material. Sensa’s breakthrough treatment integrated into the molecular structure of the stone ensures it is as hardwearing as it is beautiful.

Vibrant spirit for a fashion showroom

The headquarters and showroom of the fashion brand Jane Chuck in Malaysia features a design that is as vibrant as it is playful and inspiring. ‘We were drawn to the brand from the start, as well as to its vision, which embodies a spirit that is both vibrant and nostalgic,’ explains Jung Ong from POW Ideas, who was responsible for the design. ‘Inspired by suburban shopping centres and mid-20th century houses, we conceived Chuck’s headquarters as a space for aspirations, coexistence and self-care,’ he adds.

The fountain of youth

‘The heart of the space revolves around an oval-shaped and mosaic-tiled counter featuring a water fountain, the “fountain of youth”,’ explains Jung Ong. The piece, which integrates a worktop and a sink, takes centre stage in the showroom and is the key feature of the project. ‘Jane was looking for a dressing table and sink somewhere in the space and we thought it would be fun to make it part of the centrepiece of the project. The first idea we came up with was to create a multifunctional island with a dressing table, display shelves and a planter, all around a water fountain,’ he continues.

Stylish shelving design

In the showroom area, the aim was for the shelves to elegantly integrate the brand’s different products, for which the design studio chose Silestone Arcilla Red, from the Sunlit Days collection. ‘When it comes to designing a retail space, it is all about showcasing the products. Chuck’s products come in a variety of colours and textures, so it was important to select a display shelf finish that was subdued but capable of holding its own. Hence, the Arcilla Red surface from the Sunlit Days collection was perfect, as it has a deep pastel shade and a homogeneous appearance,’ explains Jung Ong. ‘It is quite interesting to see how these finishes, which are often intended for domestic spaces, can also be used in commercial environments for product display,’ he adds.

A cosy kitchen

This office pantry is as welcoming as it is functional and fits perfectly with the design concept that permeates the entire space. According to POW Ideas, ‘we envisioned this space as a cosy 1950s wood-toned kitchen with contemporary fittings.’ In order to introduce pops of colour in the pantry, they opted for Silestone Posidonia Green for the worktop and sink. ‘We found it to be the perfect material because it is durable for kitchen use and also matches perfectly with our pastel blue tiled splashback,’ Jung Ong continues.

‘The Casa Brasileira Itaim represents a new architectural landmark in the city of São Paulo. The project draws on the masters of modern Brazilian architecture, using elements such as exposed concrete, Y-shaped columns and a ramped entrance. The building features cutting-edge solutions in terms of sustainability, automation, cladding, accessibility and security,’ explain Lucio Engenharia and Omar Maksoud, developers of this innovative residential building in one of the best areas of the city.

But that is not all: the common areas of Casa Brasileira, a building that will be a turning point in the country’s design scene, are designed by the award-winning Jader Almeida. His pieces of furniture can be found in all the rooms, including some designed by him exclusively for the project.

Almeida has also opted for Cosentino products as raw materials for his work. ‘We chose Dekton surfaces for the project because they offer unique technical features that are different from those of other materials, such as high UV and stain resistance and low porosity, as well as excellent durability in high-traffic areas,’ explains Jader Almeida. ‘In addition, the range of colours, textures and finishes presented by Dekton influenced our decision, since this range fitted perfectly with the idea of the project, which brings back the concept of “Brazilian houses” and the value of national architecture,’ continues Almeida.

For instance, Dekton Strato has been used for the flooring of all common areas, as well as for the cladding of the sauna, the ballroom, the bathrooms and the gourmet space. It also served as the main cladding material for the 25-metre long swimming pool. Among the most important reasons for this choice are Dekton’s high UV resistance and colour stability, but also Grip+ technology, a state-of-the-art treatment that provides the ultra-compact surface with non-slip properties, making the bathroom a pleasant and safe space for residents.

Cosentino, Carlos Rossi’s choice for the elegant interiors of Casa Brasileira

Carlos Rossi, the architect behind such high-profile projects as the new luxury terminal at São Paulo airport, has been in charge of the interior design of the first completed unit in this development. To add the finishing touch to these refined spaces, Rossi has also turned to Cosentino products, for example, with the Dekton Strato flooring.

In addition, Dekton Sasea, a colour inspired by the popular Sahel limestone, in cream and grey tones and with a design full of nuances, has been chosen for the floor and wall cladding in the kitchen and the bathroom.

‘Our aim was to bring a contemporary language to the spaces, and the Sasea pattern features a neutral tone that suits all styles and blends in perfectly with the natural oak cladding used in the décor. As a result, it adds even more elegance and allows us to maintain our minimalist style,’ says Rossi.

Another colour that caught the professional’s eye was Dekton Rem, used in the two main bathrooms.  ‘This Dekton colour is also very stylish and fits in the same range of neutral tones that we were looking for, but with an ochre hue that adds dynamism to the space and was completely in keeping with the woodwork we had proposed,’ he explains.

Also in the bathrooms, Rossi used Silestone Royal Reef, a simple beige tone with nuances of grey for the floor, walls and countertops. The architect also worked with Silestone Miami White, which provides the lightness and fluidity of white, for the countertops of other bathrooms designed for the development. Beyond its beauty, versatility and innovation, the material was considered for its sustainability (it is a carbon neutral product throughout its life cycle), a feature it shares with the innovative Casa Brasileira project.

Healthy treats in a stylish space

Anissa Pâtisserie is more than just a cake shop. Its founder, Anissa Sadaoui, has been working for years to create healthy treats and cakes suitable for diabetics, people who are on a strict diet or those who simply want to watch their blood sugar level. “In 2016 I took part in the M6 culinary competition 'Le Meilleur pâtissier' and then partnered with the Bastide medical group to develop cakes with a low glycaemic index”, she says. She now has two shops where she creates sugar-free pastries with half wholemeal flour “to answer the demand for healthier and low-calorie pastries”.

For the design of these spaces where everything exudes good taste and a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, the pastry chef and entrepreneur decided to use Cosentino surfaces. “I came across Cosentino at the Ixina shop, where they showed me the product. I immediately fell in love with it”, claims Anissa Sadaoui.

The perfect background

Among the wide range of surfaces available, Sadaoui says she fell in love with Dekton Rem “because of its bright and trendy look”. The worktops in this kitchen feature this colour reminiscent of Calacatta marble: a white marbled background crossed by brown and grey veins with touches of gold. “As I am the one who creates the content for our social media, I need to take pictures of the cakes and I find that this colour is very chic without being too garish, which makes it perfect for showcasing our cakes”, she explains.

Image number 182 of the current section of A healthy patisserie featuring sustainable design in Cosentino Ireland

Advantages of Dekton surfaces

In addition to its design and beauty, the entrepreneur also assessed the technical features of the material. “It is very easy to maintain and clean and, above all, it is very resistant to stains and scratches. The Dekton worktop is magic!”, she says. In addition to this, Dekton is the only surface in its sector that is Carbon Neutral throughout its life cycle.

Furthermore, the other shop includes another Cosentino surface. Specifically, Silestone Et. Marquina has been used to round off the design. This elegant and sober colour, reminiscent of the Spanish marble of the same name, features a black background crossed by white veins and provides greater resistance to scratches and stains.

“It is a material that is very easy to maintain and clean and, above all, it is very resistant to stains and scratches. The Dekton worktop is magic!”.

A warm “nest” (that’s the meaning of the Latin word “nidum” in English) where you can be inspired by shops offering innovative and thoughtfully designed objects, enjoy the delicacies of the Ovum restaurant and relax in its boutique hotel.

In this old but homely mansion of more than 4,000 square metres, which was renovated over two years after being empty for more than 15 years, is Architectenlab, a place where the best brands in the world of interior design come together to make you fantasise about your dream home. Naturally, Cosentino has a small showroom in this exceptional space, but not only that, it is also part of the design of the Nidum centre itself. 

This is thanks to Lonneke van der Weyden and Aard Keijser of Keijser&Co, a company specialising in beautiful custom made furniture. The two are behind Nidum, a project that they have worked on together with the architectural firm Feran&Hugo. This very talented team decided to use Cosentino’s ultra-compact surfaces for different applications in the design of Nidum.

Dekton Bergen for the bar tops in the Nidum shop and restaurant

In the shop, where visitors can take home a souvenir of the Nidum experience (the olive oil used in the restaurant, its decorative cushions and the coffee table books displayed in the showroom, for example), Dekton Bergen has been used on the bar counter. Inspired by natural Portobello stone, Bergen strives for perfection in tone, structure and depth. The beauty of its greyish veins, with sculptural pattern on a whitish background with delicate filigree, makes it a trendy design full of character and elegance. 

Dekton Bergen is also present in the restaurant. Specifically, it has been used on one of the bar tops. The other one, together with the wall behind it, has been clad in Dekton Khalo. This colour is inspired by Patagonia natural stone, a type of granite widely popular all over the world for its genuine formation and nuances. In addition, its subtle black, pale gold and coffee brown spots give it a unique and innovative appearance and the Dekton XGloss finish provides a spectacular gloss and depth, which fits in perfectly with the look of the place.

The versatility of Cosentino materials, a constant at Nidum

Different shades of Dekton have been used on a number of tables, in combination with Silestone Eternal Noir. This colour has also been used on several worktops, giving them a delicate and thoughtful design inspired by the symmetry and elegance of natural stone. Its straight lines and restrained pattern create dark, yet cosy and elegant spaces that shine with their own light. Thanks to their almost zero porosity, both surfaces are highly resistant to stains.

Thanks to Cosentino products and the exquisite sensitivity of Lonneke van der Weyden y Aard Keijser, Nidum stands out as a unique place in which to discover the best of global design and interior design while enjoying an enriching aesthetic experience.

A five-star resort surrounded by sand dunes interspersed with coastal vegetation and an exclusive view over the Atlantic Ocean and the Óbidos lagoon. That is West Cliffs, a hotel, golf course and residential complex all in one, located in one of the most unexplored and exclusive areas of Portugal, the Silver Coast.

Located just one hour from Lisbon airport and yet in a natural setting, the complex has been designed to ensure balance between the built and natural environment. As such, its design concept is completely in harmony with the patterns of nature, which, according to its developers, functions almost as a natural extension of the unique landscape of this region.

The architectural firm Sua Kay, led by the renowned Mario Sua Kay (who has designed major projects for shopping centres, banks, stadiums and high-tech industrial complexes), was responsible for the design of the innovative houses for the West Cliffs project. Each house has its own style, halfway between pure contemporaneity, with glass claddings and cubic shapes, and a sort of new Portuguese tradition, with façades featuring local stone and shapes reminiscent of the typical houses of Óbidos.

Sustainability and high durability, key features for the masterminds behind the project

If there is one thing the whole complex has in common, it is the highest certification in terms of sustainability. In fact, Sua Kay believes that this aspect should go further, revolving around not only energy efficiency, but also the quality of the construction and the materials used. “It gives me great pleasure to return to the buildings I built more than twenty years ago and find them in the same condition in which they were delivered to the client”, he says.

All this has led the studio to choose Dekton and Silestone (carbon neutral products throughout their life cycle with a 25-year warranty) for this project, as we will see in one of its most recently completed homes, which we will explore below.

The beauty and size of the pieces, key to the choice of Dekton and Silestone

“There are several reasons why we chose to use Dekton for this project. Among them are the beauty and size of the pieces, which create unique spaces. This is the case, for example, with the master suite, which features a bathtub, shower and sauna and which we wanted to convey a spa-like feel”.

According to the studio, this was achieved thanks to the large Dekton Kira slabs, which were used for the floor, walls and shower. Inspired by natural stone, Dekton Kira is reminiscent of Gris Pulpis for its elegance and versatility. This colour features a background in earth tones crossed by delicate light grey veins running naturally across the surface. All this, combined with its soft matt texture, gives it a timeless feel.

For the washbasin, the studio chose Silestone’s Ariel model in Coral Clay, a colour reminiscent of cappuccino cream. “In this way we created a unique look, which combines with the wood used for the roof and the glass of the façade, which overlooks a private courtyard, contributing to a calm and relaxing atmosphere”, the studio says.

A range of colours perfect to achieve groundbreaking visual effects

“The same concept was used for the other sanitary rooms, but as they were less spacious, Dekton Opera was used to ‘enlarge’ them”, the studio further says. In this case, they allude to the refined colour inspired by the elegant Italian Carrara marble. Its creamy white background is crossed by a simple light grey veining that adds depth and character, while its classic finish offers a sensationally soft and velvety feel.

The Marie washbasin was used in another bathroom. The colour chosen was Silestone Cemento Spa, a dark grey that gives an industrial, modern and innovative touch by emulating the finish, tone and roughness of cement. This provides a relaxing and innovative contrast with the wooden furniture, creating an elegant and exclusive atmosphere throughout the house.

Last but not least, for the kitchen, the studio took up the idea of contrast with wood and chose Dekton Radium for the island, worktops and claddings. “We wanted a stronger colour palette, contrasting with the cabinets and the roughness of the stone. The durability of Dekton in everyday kitchen use was decisive in our choice, as it ensured that it would not scratch or stain with normal use”, the studio concludes.

Silestone, a sustainable material for a modular and beautifully designed home

Prefabricated houses are experiencing a golden age. Why? Their construction times and costs are shorter, as they are built in the factory before being moved to the final construction site. Therefore, they can also be easily extended. Furthermore, they have a lower environmental impact, as they are often manufactured with more sustainable materials and processes, which reduce noise on the construction site.

These sustainable materials include products made from recycled raw materials, such as Silestone, which is produced with the exclusive HybriQ+ technology and contains at least 20% of reused materials, such as glass, in its composition.

That is one of the reason why this hybrid mineral surface by Cosentino was chosen to clad the worktop, TV cabinet and dressing room of a prefabricated house in Abu Dhabi. It was conceived and built by Bespoke Modular Solutions (BMS), pioneers of modular construction in the Middle East.

Minimalist design enhanced by Silestone Snowy Ibiza

The luxurious one-bedroom villa, with a total gross floor area of 78 m², consists of two prefabricated modules and features a minimalist decorative style tailored to the client’s needs in terms of design and finishes.

The oversized floor-to-ceiling windows maximise natural light in this striking space, while at night, its warm, smart lighting is a real bonus thanks connectivity, as it can be easily controlled from a phone.

Certainly, such windows provide a powerful connection between the interior and exterior spaces of the home. All this is reinforced by the final location of the house, an attractive outdoor space with a swimming pool.

Silestone’s Snowy Ibiza colour was selected to highlight the elegant interiors of this project because of its light cream surface tone and subtle veining, which blends perfectly with the neutral and pure colour range of the interior. Cladding the kitchen worktop and minimalist furniture with Snowy Ibiza helps to accentuate the look and feel of understated luxury in the space.

The extra matt ‘Suede’ texture – the key feature for a neutral, modern and elegant look

‘The integration of Cosentino surfaces in our design gives us credibility in the region as a quality modular manufacturer,’ says Jona Marku, Creative & Design Director at Bespoke Modular Solutions. ‘From a design point of view, the thinness of the material allows it to be used in large areas, such as the kitchen counter, with very little support underneath, which is a valuable feature of the surface. Its durability and scratch resistance, as well as the great advantages if offers for use in the kitchen,’ she continues.

The professional also looks at the different texture options offered by Cosentino: Polished (extremely glossy and smooth texture, with a uniform, intense and consistent colour); Volcano (a rustic and rough texture, yet soft and very pleasant to the touch), and Suede (a matt appearance that conveys a unique feel to the touch for its beauty and fineness).

Finally, BMS opted for the latter texture: ‘Its matt touch really worked to achieve the look we wanted to go for,’ recalls Marku. ‘And, of course, the support of the Cosentino team was of great importance and made it much easier to build everything according to our client’s wishes.’
