SILESTONE LAUNCHES CREATIVE NEW IPAD AND IPHONE APP FOR ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS
May 8, 2012
Silestone (www.silestoneusa.com), the world leader in quartz surfacing, announces the launch of its new iPad and iPhone application for design professionals. The Silestone app was created to be an essential design resource for architects and designers offering an interactive “toolbox” of over 75 colors, inspiration galleries, practical advice, and an easily accessible dealer locator function.
“With design professionals utilizing technology more and more in their business and creative process, the new iPad and iPhone app is a natural evolution for the Silestone brand,” said Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “We are providing designers with interactive tools to help make their job easier and more efficient, while at the same time inspiring them with new color and design ideas.”
Among the many unique features the app will offer to enable architects and designers to make the most of the tablet and mobile experience will be photo galleries of exceptional kitchen and bath projects, and the full range of more than 75 Silestone colors arranged by both hue and series. An excellent new tool for the trade is a convenient calculator to help estimate area square footage and pricing for projects. Once designers are ready to make product selections, the app’s helpful “store locator” feature provides a location-based list of local showrooms, dealers, and retailers.
Whether designing on-the-go or presenting concepts, the app allows designers the opportunity to assist clients by showcasing colors and ideas in a more sophisticated and visual way than simply showing a traditional sample tile.
“As Silestone’s digital presence continues to increase, it’s imperative to provide the resources and support that architects and designers need to grow their businesses and be successful,” added Marquez.
The Silestone app is available in English and Spanish and can be downloaded for free from the Apple iTunes store. For more information, please visit the Silestone website at www.silestoneusa.com or Facebook page.
