Minimalist design tables

The first pieces of furniture designed by Laurent Maugoust’s eponymous editor, in collaboration with his artistic director Cécile Chenais, are two sculptural tables with a lot of character and a graphic and dramatic design. Both were presented at the Silvera Saint-Germain showroom in Paris, with an exhibition that allows us to fully appreciate their textures and colours, among which Sensa and Scalea by Cosentino stand out.

With their Mantis table and Naïl coffee table, the creative pair have established a dialogue between materials and shapes which revolves around the geometric character of the design and a spirit that is as demanding as it is refined.

Naïl Coffee Table: Sensa Vancouver quartzite tops (1.10 x 0.80 m (x 2 tables) / Thickness: 2 cm) Table base in Scalea Verde Guaco natural stone.

An ideal surface

Sensa Vancouver quartzite and Scalea Verde Guaco marble were the natural stones chosen for the design of these two tables. “Sensa was a great discovery in terms of product, originality and technology. Choosing Vancouver to create this table with such a special, organic and sensual touch is a real success”, explains Cécile Chenais.

Indeed, thanks to the Senguard NK protection, specially developed by Cosentino for the Sensa colour range, the material is exceptionally resistant to stains, aggressive and acidic substances and scratches, while at the same time being easy to maintain on a daily basis, making it an ideal surface. It is also NSF certified, which confirms it as a suitable surface for food contact, with no risk of staining or damage. In this way Sensa combines classic beauty with cutting edge technology, thus maintaining the natural colour of the stone.

Versatile materials

“The interesting thing about Cosentino is that its materials are very versatile. These include natural stones like Sensa, ultracompact and ultra resistant surfaces like Dekton and high tech materials of great aesthetic value like Silestone. They can therefore be used in kitchens as well as for high-end design and the creation of unique objects, which is what we did with this table and coffee table”, explains Laurent Maugoust. “It is very interesting for us to use such high quality products with outstanding technical solutions that can be adapted to different types of projects”, says Cécile Chenais.

A design to match every surface

In June 2018, the Mediterráneo Bay Hotel & Resort opened its doors after a full refurbishment to celebrate its 25th anniversary. This cornerstone of the Almería hotel industry is located in a peaceful area on the seafront in Roquetas de Mar. With 367 rooms, an enormous lagoon-shaped swimming pool, a second pool with water slides for the little ones, a children’s club, a fitness centre and much more, the Mediterráneo Bay Hotel & Resort is a four-star paradise perfect for a dream holiday.

Cosentino became a trusted partner in this refurbishment process. Its presence can be felt throughout every inch of the common spaces and rooms in the hotel, with materials from its Dekton, Silestone and Natural Stone brands.

The Cosentino family of materials stands out in every detail

The hotel’s main façade, crafted in more than 340 m2 of texturised crema marfil-coloured marble, grabs the visitors’ attention to greet them upon arrival. A water fountain refreshes the traveller’s visual palate next to the façade, also crafted in marble, in a 2 cm texturised Sierra Elvira tone.

The guest arrives at the hotel lobby with the assurance that everything to follow will be sophisticated and in good taste. The lobby’s flooring is made of ultra-compact Dekton surfacing in the Danae colour tone, used in the 157 x 140 x 0.8 cm and 320 x 140 x 0.8 cm formats to guarantee the perfect visual continuity in a spacious and bright environment.

Durable and design-centred refurbishment

The buffet bar was crafted in the Blanco Zeus Suede model of Silestone with a 2 cm thickness. The counters for the other two bars were built with Alaska and Ibiza white marble, respectively. In addition, the dining area leaves guests spellbound, as the entire floor shines with the spectacular effect of the polished Venato Carrara floor covering, in its 40 x 40 x 2 cm format.

After the visual feast of the hotel’s common areas, guests arrive at their room to discover, to their delight, that it follows the same aesthetic theme. The room and bathroom are cladded with polished and bevelled Crema Marfil marble tiles, with the bathroom flooring honed in the same tone and the countertops fashioned in a gorgeous Carrara white marble in the 120 x 60 x 2 cm format.

As a whole, the refurbishment of the Hotel Mediterráneo Park in Almería is a showcase of the design possibilities for the entire line of Cosentino surfaces.

It has taken the Spanish Court Hotel just 10 years to establish itself as one of the most outstanding properties in the Caribbean, becoming one the top three accommodation options chosen by the public according to specialist travel websites. Among the qualities that make this hotel unique is the characteristic style of its décor, which combines natural elements from the Caribbean surroundings with cutting-edge, modern materials. This is the style that Christopher Issa, owner of the Spanish Court, wanted to maintain and enhance when renovating the hotel in 2019.

“We wanted the hotel to complement the natural beauty of Jamaica,” explains Issa who, alongside his team, searched for the most suitable materials for the project. “The designer wanted a white floor and finding the right one was among our biggest challenges.” Cue Dekton by Cosentino and its wide variety of colours.

Dekton Zenith, the all-encompassing white

The renovation of the Spanish Court Hotel involved refurbishing the luxurious bedrooms and their spectacular bathrooms. The Antrobus + Ramirez studio opted to use 6,967 m2 of the Dekton Zenith colour for this task, as a way to let the light in Jamaica flood into every room. As the owner, Christopher Issa describes the result, “When you walk into the rooms refurbished with Dekton, they feel like a million-dollar suite.”

The Cosentino team, headed by Astor Paz, General Manager at Cosentino Center Fort Lauderdale, provided important guidance when it came to choosing the materials: “We were able to provide help and advice with regard to the installation of the materials. In fact, we spent several days training the team of installers.” The result of this close collaboration is the 1,858 m2 of Dekton used in the hallways, in the Danae shade with the Grip+ anti-slip finish.

Natural stone in the areas dedicated to relaxation and fun

Among the Spanish Court Hotel’s main attractions are the spa areas, where guests can relax and the large pool, designed for fun as well as comfort. In these areas, the designers have sought to maintain a sense of coherence with the surroundings by using Natural Stone, in the Caliza Alba shade for the pool and White Macael for the spa.

Support during the project execution phase

Christopher Issa highlighted how easy it was to work with Cosentino, which not only gave him the opportunity to understand the properties of the materials and to discover the wide range of colours, but also to visit the Cosentino production headquarters in Almería, Spain.

The support we received, both in the choice of the most appropriate materials as well as the training prior to the installation, was one of the factors that made this project such a success, both in terms of design and execution.

An oasis of light in the heart of Madrid

Lagasca 99 is an innovative residential building that is already capturing the attention of the residents of the Salamanca neighbourhood, one of the most distinguished areas in Madrid, known for its history and architecture. Located at the gates of what is known as Madrid’s Golden Mile, this property is a benchmark in style and design thanks to the work of Rafael de la Hoz, an architect known for the outstanding livability and sustainability of his projects.

In what has turned into an exercise of imagination and pragmatism, Rafael de la Hoz and his team have managed to customise large spaces in which natural light is key, offering residents not only a comfortable environment, but also high energy efficiency thanks to the cutting-edge technology that is an intrinsic part of Lagasca 99.

Image of Lagasca 99 fachada 1 in Laurent Maugoust - Cosentino

Two tonne natural stone fins

There are numerous architectural elements that make Lagasca 99 a unique building. Without a doubt, the first thing that stands out is its futuristic façade: 330 colossal, solid pieces of natural stone – 273, 288 and 306.5 cm x 140 cm wide and 35 cm thick – whose individual weight is approximately 2,200 kg. Each of these vast pieces in the distinctive Travertino colour has been modelled to evoke the shape of a shark fin. The effect they produce from the outside is spectacular.

This new benchmark of Madrid’s architecture incorporates other unique elements in its exterior design, such as bevelled corners or homes of different heights and spaces that play with the relief of the façade.

Dekton and Silestone transform a residential unit into a home

Rafael de la Hoz has focused on making the interior of the residence as attractive as the façade, while also complying with the strictest standards in sustainability and energy efficiency. The insulation, installation and materials used have been essential when creating a comfortable and sustainable environment in which Dekton and Silestone have played a vital role.

For the main kitchens, the ultra-compact Dekton surface, has been used in the colour Keyla, an elegant and high-quality tone that is combined with the Silestone Blanco Zeus used for service kitchens.

The communal areas, such as the stairs, are also designed using Travertino Natural Stone.
