Remember my previous post about MTG ReFa S Carat and Plosion and this photo with the various tiles? I mentioned that I would give an introduction about Cosentino, which is the brand that produces and markets these innovative surfaces for architecture and design, so here it is!
Frankly, preparing and writing this post is quite different from my usual fashion, beauty, food & travel topics but I am happy to be doing so, because architecture & interior design is definitely a topic that I love too! 🙂
If you’re like me and haven’t heard of Cosentino, fret not, because their space here in Singapore is actually pretty new too! Cosentino City, as their showroom space in Duxton is known, only launched in November last year, so this year marks its first year. However the company and brand is way more established, read more about them here:
Cosentino Group is a global, family-owned company that produces and distributes high value innovative surfaces for architecture and design. As a leading company, Cosentino imagines and anticipates together with its customers and partners design solutions that offer value and inspiration to people’ lives. This goal is made possible by pioneering brands that are leaders in their respective segments such as Silestone®, Dekton®, Eco by Cosentino® and Sensa by Cosentino®. Technologically advanced surfaces which allow create unique designs for the home and public spaces.
The group bases its development on international expansion, an innovative research and development program, respect for the environment and sustainability, and its ongoing corporate commitment to society and the local communities where it operates, education, equality and health & safety.
Cosentino Group currently distributes its products and brands in more than 80 countries, and directly manages from its headquarters in Almeria (Spain) its own facilities in more than 20 of them. 90% of Cosentino Group’s turnover comes from international markets.
Cool, huh! I may be wrong as I don’t come from an architectural and design background, but I do feel that the Cosentino is like the Hermes brand in the architecture world. I say this because Cosentino reminds me of the private high fashion brand Hermes as both are privately owned and both have such high levels of excellence in their products. Also, beyond just marketing their products, they create such wonderful environments and also give back to society through sponsorship of artistic collaborations. In essence, brands like them inspire me!
Cosentino City’s Kitchen Showroom, is a fully functioning kitchen where cooking classes are also held at. The entire space in addition to being a showroom, is also a space for events.
Cosentino City’s show room with discussion & lounge space.
Sleek display channels integrated into the table and on screen with various tiles / surfaces. This is where Cosentino team present ideas and visual application of solutions to partners and clients. We didn’t actually see an actual presentation but I’m sure the presentations are cool, heh!
The restroom at Cosentino City is a welcomed space with the sleek design.
And we also indulged a little with a variety of Spanish food (love the link to their Spanish roots here!) from My Little Spanish Place. Although I have not been to Spain before, so I can’t tell if the food is authentic but it sure does tastes amazing and I would love to visit the restaurant soon!
Have I mentioned that I LOVE olives? Some people take the olives out of their pizzas, but I love the taste of them, especially the black ones in the pizzas! 🙂Amazing spread of food~
And we also heard a little sharing about Spanish White and Red Wines, Paco & Lola & Paco.
Then we heard a presentation from the Cosentino team! We watched video presentations about their works and art collaborations/sponsorship, which gets me because I’m/was an art student, hahaha. And watching the snippets of Italy made me miss my times as an art student, touring Italy so much. T_T

Dekton’s high resistance to heat, scratches and stains makes it the perfect worktop material for bathroom design.

Thank you Cosentino Singapore & Touch PR for the lovely evening!
When the time comes that I get to choose innovative surfaces for a building or space, I will definitely keep Cosentino in mind! 😀
