Cosentino in CASACOR Miami
December 3, 2018
Cosentino, global leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, is proud to announce its sponsorship of CASACOR Miami 2018 – the most prestigious international architecture, interior and landscape exhibition in North America. The architectural surfacing brand’s partnership with CASACOR Miami ties back to its longstanding support of CASACOR in Latin America, which for 20 years has been an international purveyor of innovative design and world-class craftsmanship in the home design space.
From November 30 to December 16, the 25,000 square-foot exhibition located at Brickell City Centre’s 700 Brickell Avenue building will draw thousands to tour more than 20 urban oasis-themed spaces created by leading architects, designers and artists from across the globe. Among them: Paolo Pininfarina of internationally renowned design house and emblem of Italian style Pininfarina; Inês Martins of luxury interior design-firm Inês Martins Design; Jesus Pacheco Moscoso of Jesus Pacheco Studio; Paula Lemme of By Lemme Interior Design; Tatiana Moreira of StyleHaus Design; Award-winning principal architect Sandra Diaz-Velasco of Eolo Design and Miami-based multimedia artist Juliana Aragao. As the presenting sponsor of CASACOR, Cosentino offered both ultra-compact Dekton® and Silestone® quartz surfaces to reflect this year’s theme of bringing energy to the natural environment from wild roots to technology, modernism and naturalism.
“Cosentino has had a long-standing partnership with CASACOR and we are thrilled to sponsor the second annual stateside exhibition in Miami, home of our new Americas headquarters,” said Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America and EVP Global Sales, Cosentino Group. “We look forward to seeing how this year’s group of international architects and designers showcase our materials in their distinct styles.”
Cosentino will also debut an experiential outdoor installation titled Speedforms in the Garden designed by Pininfarina and crafted from Cosentino’s ultra-compact surface, Dekton® and Cosentino’s natural stone product Marble Blanco Macael. The unique installation invites guests to flow between three different spaces inclusive of sculptural forms, benches and an aerodynamic bar united by the underlying theme of progression from the natural to the engineered, highlighting the opposing forces of nature and technology.
Proceeds from CASACOR ticket sales will benefit Voices for Children, a Miami non-profit that raises funds to ensure abused, abandoned and neglected children in Miami-Dade County have a court-appointed Guardian ad Litem (GAL), financial assistance and other resources for health, educational, and social needs.
