Besides being sponsor of the event and the official worktop partner of one of the most notable events in the world for the haute cuisine sector, Dekton® sponsored the ‘Sustainable Restaurant Award 2018’. Santiago Alfonso, Cosentino Group Vice-President of Communications and Marketing, was in charge of handing over the award to Eneko Atxa, chef of the Azurmendi restaurante, located in Larrabetzu (Biscay, Spain).

The role played by Dekton® at the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018 gala once again demonstrated the strong links that bind the Spanish company Cosentino and the world of gastronomy and dining, as its advanced surfaces are present in millions of home kitchens across all five continents, as well as in the kitchens of the world’s most prestigious hotels and restaurants.
Santiago Alfonso, Director of Communications and Marketing for the Cosentino Group: ‘we’re proud that many of the restaurants named here tonight, which are considered the best in the world, feature our Dekton® and Silestone® products in their interiors. Mugaritz, Disfrutar or DiverXO in Spain, Restaurant André in Singapore, De Librije in the Netherlands or The French Laundry in the USA are just a few examples. An award for them is also an award for us.’
Cosentino wanted to attend this event for the eighth consecutive year because this is the first time it is being held in Spain; previous locations have included the USA, Australia and the UK. Bilbao was chosen as the host city, and all eyes were on the Palacio Euskalduna for the main event.
