The Cosentino Design Challenge has now reached its 12th year
September 21, 2017
Cosentino Group presents the 12th edition of the international Cosentino Design Challenge.
With the support of 24 schools, universities and institutions of national and international prestige, this initiative is an unmissable annual event, and a great achievement for Cosentino in its social and educational commitment to the next generation of architects and designers.
The Cosentino Design Challenge promotes and encourages creativity and talent among architecture and design students from all over the world.
The facilities of the Cosentino City Madrid, located on the Paseo de la Castellana, hosted the competition launch event yesterday afternoon. Students, teachers, renowned professionals and journalists specialising in architecture and design were informed about the details of the 12th Cosentino Design Challenge.
Composed of two categories, the Architecture brief asks students to reflect on “Cosentino and the dramatic arts”, and the Design brief is centred on “Cosentino and light”. In both categories, the participants have complete freedom in developing their final project, which must include a product manufactured by Cosentino: the Silestone® natural quartz surface, the Dekton® ultracompact surface and/or the Sensa® protected granite surface.
In June 2018, the judging panel will announce the winning projects and their designers. There are three winners for each category, who will be awarded €1,000 each, and three special mentions.
The winners of the 11th Cosentino Design Challenge will be presented with their prizes at this year’s launch event.
The day’s schedule also includes the keynote address “Transformations in cooking spaces over the last two centuries” given by the architect Luis Fernández-Galiano.
