Cosentino Group is taking part at Casa Decor Barcelona with three magnificent spaces. The first is a restaurant space created by the Círculo Cuadrado studio and decorated by Maribel Caballero and Ismael Barajas. This setting boasts a spectacular bar made of Silestone® in the colour Doradus and features the new and revolutionary Suede finish, developed by Cosentino this year following in-depth research in the field of polishing technology.
In another display, the intimate bathroom space by the company Azul Acocsa and decorated by the Coblonal studio has an elegant shower tray and Silestone® basin in the colour Lagoon, a colour that was also used for the wall coverings and flooring. The finish on all the Silestone® surfaces is Suede.
Lastly, the interior designer Ana López de la Casa has used a Silestone® worktop in the colour Lyra for the space created by the company JML-Realizamos, which also features a beautiful Exclusive basin.
The public toilets at Casa Decor Barcelona also include a number of Silestone® countertops in the colour Merope and have a polished finish.
Thanks to these examples of the application of Silestone® which can be seen at Casa Decor Barcelona, this Spanish brand once again demonstrates that it is the ideal choice for decorating both private and public spaces, and offers an infinite possibility for design and artistic creations.
An iconic venue, located on one of the city’s main streets, was chosen to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Casa Decor Barcelona. The Carrer d’Aragó 271 building, in the well-known Quadrat d’Or area, is a singular property where two different 20th century eras converge. This modern building, with natural light as one of its main elements, measures over 3,800m² and features straight lines, new materials and has very little ornamentation.
