September 6, 2013
Silestone,® the world leader in quartz surfacing, introduces Nebula Code, an evolution of the popular Silestone Nebula series. The new collection is composed of five colors inspired by the appearance of natural stone. The neutral hues are subtle yet distinctive, featuring an original pattern of brilliantly colored veining throughout the surface that never repeats.
At the forefront of design, Nebula Code utilizes the most advanced color technology to offer exotic movement, adding depth and sophistication to any kitchen or bathroom, while meeting the needs of both traditional and modern aesthetics. Nebula Code continues to expand Cosentino’s selection of warm and neutral tones, with five striking additions: Hélix, Pulsar, Daria, Istmo and Dreis, all available in the polished and suede finishes.
Hélix balances its off-white base color with carefully constructed shades of gray veining. Pulsar combines gray, beige, and mustard veining on a crisp white base. Daria depicts a subtle and harmonious mixture of beige and rose-colored veining with a light brown base. Istmo showcases the warmth of a multi-tonal grey, making it a flexible option for a wide range of environments. The most opaque hue in the series is Dreis, which incorporates warm brown tones over a black foundation providing a stylish contrast.
“The introduction of Nebula Code underscores Cosentino’s continual commitment to design and innovation,” said Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “We’re excited to add this truly sophisticated color series to our expansive selection, providing even more options for those who want the marble look without the maintenance that it requires.”
Nebula Code was developed using a new product initiative, where Silestone actively engages designers in the color selection process and requests feedback during trade shows before determining the final offering. This year, Nebula Code was previewed at the Kitchen and Bath Industry show in April, where designers, fabricators and distributors commented on the preliminary color offering. Five hues made the final cut.
As with all Silestone natural quartz products, the Nebula Code Series is naturally non-porous and never needs to be sealed. It is easy to clean and has high scratch, stain, and heat resistance. Silestone is also proven to be a cleaner and safer countertop. It offers a unique combination of built-in antimicrobial protection that safely fights the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew along with the assurance of GREENGUARD certification for clean air quality, and National Sanitation Foundation certification (NSF 51) for safe food preparation.
The Nebula Code series retails from $58 to $94 per square foot depending on thickness and finish. It’s available at kitchen and bath dealers and home centers nationwide in 55” x 120” slabs in 1 cm, 2 cm, and 3 cm thickness. Silestone Quartz offers a 15-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.
