  • Cosentino unveils “home” at Downtown Design 2022 Dubai Fair, built using carbon neutral surfaces Silestone and Dekton

Architectural surfaces leader Cosentino and global multi-disciplinary design firm RSP Architects unveiled the result of their creative collaboration - KASA Cosentino, a bold installation that alludes to the need for responsible design.

Talking about KASA Cosentino at Downtown Design, RSP’s Dubai Director Ralf Steinhauer said, "This is an award-winning effort and a great compliment to everyone involved. Working in collaboration with Cosentino was a wonderful experience as we are equally committed to sustainable design and materials.”

Drawing from the Spanish root word “casa” meaning house, the unmissable installation located close to the fair entrance, stood out for its domical roof structure that takes the shape of a giant balance scale supported on a central arched portal. Embedded in this symbolic structure is the narrative to maintain a balancing act between the need to create beautiful, dynamic spaces and the strive for sustainable solutions that sow the seeds for a better tomorrow. Opening up about the inspiration behind the design, Stephanie Brown, Senior Interior Designer at RSP Architects said, “Cosentino's Sustainable Revolution for the manufacturing of their products is an inspiration in itself. The stand design is inspired by a balance scale supported by a central arched tunnel which serves as a passageway. On either side of the tunnel are two large domes supported by an angled beam symbolizing Cosentino's efforts in developing carbon neutral products foreseeing a future where the scale is at level.”

Envisioned as an extension of Cosentino City DubaiKASA comprised of a lounge space for architecture and design conversations and a show kitchen to host casual catch-ups over coffee. Sheer curtains add an element of play and create fluid spaces that toggle between public and private. Clad in Cosentino’s latest collection of sustainable and carbon neutral surfaces featuring exciting colours and textures from Silestone® Sunlit Days and Dekton® Onirika and Kraftizen, the installation focused on “creating an interactive guest experience while showcasing a vast array of material application techniques and create an action/reaction sense of discovery.”

Design and experience aside, KASA Cosentino was an exceptional example of the spirit of collaboration. Brought to life with the support of several global and regional brands including Miele, Baituti Home, SoMA Lighting, Sanderson and Hidayath Group, the installation is one-of-a-kind explained Miriam Llano, Cosentino’s Regional Marketing Manager, “Dubai Design Week is a celebration of design, innovation, originality and most of all, collaborations – what we thrive on the most at Cosentino. KASA is a home we have built together with so many great companies coming on board in the spirit of co-operation, collaboration and building together - these are the only enduring values we have as humankind. We are greater than ever when we create together.”
