Dekton, Cosentino’s ultra-compact material and surface sponsor of the Mutua Madrid Open, is off to a strong start in Spain’s biggest tennis tournament thanks to a spectacular kitchen set. This set provides leisure activities to the tournament’s guest and will be active through May 8. To inaugurate this unique “living cooking” space, a cooking demonstration featuring three Michelin starred chef, David Muñoz and tennis players, Feliciano López, Fernando Verdasco and Eugénie Bouchard took place. Muñoz led the show with his culinary creations inspired by the tournament.The four tennis stars played their part by demonstrating their own culinary prowess and casually assisted the chef in preparing the dish.Other attendees at the event included Manolo Santana, Director of the Mutua Madrid Open; Gerard Tsobanian, President and CEO of the tournament, and Francisco Martínez-Cosentino, Chairman of the Cosentino Group. Later that day, Francisco Martínez-Cosentino was awarded the Medal for Merit at Work by the Spanish Government.This performance opened the cooking demonstration set series. The booth allows all Mutua Madrid Open attendees to discover “the recipe for success” while at the Caja Mágica Tennis Center. Through next Sunday, prestigious chefs and Cosentino partners, Andoni Luis Aduriz, Dani García and Diego Guerrero and others, will be using this space to perform live demonstrations of some of their best-known recipes. This opportunity allows Dekton to bring together prestigious Michelin stars and well know tennis athletes.
Due to Dekton’s versatility, it will be present in several redesigned spaces of the Caja Mágica Center. From an impressive mural around the entrances to the VIP spaces to the various bar and countertop applications. Dekton’s most highly praised addition is the corridor constructed from its latest collection XGloss. This magnificent piece was recently featured in Madrid Fashion Week.
