The Cosentino Group participates in the 30th edition of CASACOR Rio de Janeiro, which is taking place between 2nd March and 25th April at the Palacete Brando Barbosa, a beautiful palace located in the Botanical Garden and surrounded by 12,000 m? of Atlantic Forest.
CASACOR Rio de Janeiro has always aimed to convey the Carioca lifestyle through an exhibition that brings together renowned professionals from the world of architecture, interior design and landscaping.
To celebrate its 30th anniversary, this year's edition combines both on-site and digital formats, with the participation of more than 50 professionals presenting 38 different projects.
Cosentino could not miss such an important event for design and brings along its innovative Silestone® and Dekton® surfaces. Applications of both of these products have been used in "O Refúgio", a space designed by architect Adriana Esteves, and "UP Home", a project by Michelle Wilkinson, Thiago Morsh and Cadé Marino, from Up3 Arquitetura.
"O Refúgio" by architect Adriana Esteves
"O Refúgio" is a project by Adriana Estevez and, as its name suggests, it is the best interpretation of the moment we are living in, which still calls for social isolation. This colourful, tidy space is a reflection of new living trends in the post-pandemic world, where living spaces must encompass a range of features, even in small areas.
This place devoted to relaxation and disconnection from the outside world focuses on physical and mental health and enhances comfort with contemporary and cosy furniture. In the kitchen area, Adriana has used Silestone® Blanco Maple for the panelling and worktop.
"UP Home" by Michelle Wilkinson, Thiago Morsh and Cadé Marino, from Up3 Arquitetura
On the other hand, UP3 Arquitetura presents "UP Home", a loft with integrated spaces, without walls and designed for a variety of uses. In this new context, the traditional living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and office are now designed to welcome guests and relax, to love and rest, to share and cherish memories, to become purified and renewed, to teach and learn. In the "UP Home", the kitchen is the heart of the house, without visually dominating the space. It features discreet cupboards and a large, island style worktop with an organic design, also serving as a meeting table.
The Dekton® Kira sink worktop features earth tones and a light grey veining that brings elegance and versatility to the space. Stone, clay, wood and cotton are used to decorate open, multi-functional spaces, usually in combination with earth and green forest tones.
