The new City concept for Amsterdam has been designed by the Cosentino design team and consists of 2 floors with multiple spaces where the main brands Silestone®, Dekton® and Sensa® stand out. In these rooms you can see examples of floor and (ventilated) façade applications, worktop inspiration, materials can be experienced live and in large format and there is room for organizing events and exhibitions.
Visitors to City Amsterdam can take advantage of the latest developments in digital technology. There is the Digital Experience, a space where projects can be displayed in 3D and adapted in augmented reality. There is also a life-size screen with a digital slab, where the slab material can be displayed at full size.
In the Atelier Lab, visitors are surrounded by samples, not only from Cosentino’s own collection but also from other materials (wood, textiles, wallpaper, books, etc.). The Atelier lab is perfect for architects and interior designers to get inspiration for any kind of project.
In the fully equipped kitchen cooking demonstrations will be given, also companies can cook there themselves upon request. There is also a meeting room available for visiting architects and designers and various flex workstations.
The building consists of three buildings that have been merged into one space. The design of the interior has an industrial appearance in which the characteristic properties of the building have been used as canvas. This is underlined by the wooden beam structure on the ceiling.
Lara Leenhouts, Cosentino City Amsterdam manager: “In recent months, we have been working hard to transform the building into a place where leading architects and designers as well as media and consumers can get acquainted with cosentino’s latest products and expertise. In the coming months, the focus will be on launchings of new colours and products, various (online) presentations are on the agenda and we will do everything we can to make our slogan: ‘Get Inspired’ come true”.
