Cosentino: Sustainable surfaces
Known for its sustainable surfaces that combine beauty and practicality, Cosentino is setting trends and inspiring people with its innovative surface products, including Silestone® and Dekton®.
The two products were recently used to splendid effect in a sophisticated new-build in Cuiabá, Brazil, where the contemporary finishes perfectly complimented the clean, modern interiors.
Dekton and Silestone in Aeris and White Storm were used in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room.
Ultra-compact, high-performance Dekton surfaces are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. It is scratch, stain, fire, heat, abrasion and UV-resistant, as well as non-porous. In addition, all Dekton products come with a 25-year surface warranty.
Made from natural minerals and recycled materials such as glass, Silestone, too, is an extremely durable product. Perfect for indoor use, it is also available in a variety of textures, including polished and suede surfaces. Scratch and stain-resistant, Silestone also comes with a 25-year guarantee.
The home is characterised by its streamlined open-plan layout and light, neutral colour scheme.
“We looked at various design options that could be adapted to the needs of the family living in this house, who were keen to integrate their living spaces. Eventually, we decided to knock down the wall that separated the dining room from the rest of the house and create this sophisticated and large space where many loved ones could gather in one place. What’s even better is that the two rooms can also be integrated into the swimming pool area,” explains interior designer Andressa Borsato.
To blend into the scheme, Dekton Aeris was used in the kitchen and gourmet area, as well as two bathrooms.
“We chose the material for its strength, durability and colours, which fit perfectly with the project,” says Borsato.
“As this is a home for people who usually have their grandchildren over, it is very important that Dekton is a stain-resistant material as the colour range of the project is light. So even with frequent use, it will keep the house looking as good as new for many years to come.”
Meanwhile, Silestone White Storm was used in three other bathrooms as well as other spaces in the home to provide textural interest.
The result? A beautiful, hard-wearing home that ticks all the boxes when it comes to style, sustainability and durability criteria.
