Cosentino Group, the world leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, is pleased to share the highlights of its participation at this year's Casa Décor Madrid. The annual event that is held in Madrid every year is a prestigious and exclusive exhibition, bringing together the most talented interior designers, decorators and plastic artists in Europe at a stunning showcase of artistic talent. This year, Cosentino is proud to have its materials and products used at seven out of a total 67 spaces at the exhibition. Some of the Cosentino products that were used are table tops, kitchen countertops, bars and sinks, in the following areas:
'Feelings' Dining Room, by As Interiorista and Alfaro Arquitectura
As the name of the room suggests, this was a space inspired by emotions. Visually, it impresses as a fusion of cultures and architectural, pictorial, sculptural and photographic trends, where the sensations of avant-garde cuisine can be enjoyed to the fullest. The colourful area was dominated by a dining table with one leg and a top made of Dekton® Entzo, which offered a very luxurious aesthetic with the pure white base and mix of golden tones for the veining.
'Art' Living room, by Jaime Jurado
The interior designer and plastic artist Jaime Jurado created this art-inspired lounge with a dominance of sober and elegant colours, adding a bold and fresh touch to only one key piece in the living room: the sofa. This space features Dekton® Entzo, used to construct the table tops, a sideboard and supports.
'The Apartment', by Ele Room 62
This recreation of a small apartment embodied the importance that Belgians place on their home, which they like to have practical and well-organised spaces that still retain elegance. The designers, Inmaculada Recio and Silvia Trigueros, chose to use Dekton® surfaces for the kitchen island countertop and laundry liner, in the lovely "Kelya" shade that is inspired by black marble with light streaks.
'Apartment for Ofelia', by Raúl Martins
The furniture company Natuzzi entrusted this project to interior designer Raúl Martins – to great effect: the result was a sophisticated and harmonious bedroom and living-dining room. Martins chose to use Dekton® Aura 15, with a marble effect, for the lid of a beautiful auxiliary piece of furniture and a decorative composition on the wall.
'A Journey Through Time' Public Baths, by Miriam Alía
Interior designer Miriam Alía drew influence from the avant-garde aesthetic of the 60's to design a spectacular bathroom with dramatic effect: the walls and floors incorporate a relief effect to become three-dimensional elements. In this journey through time, Alía aimed to create a space where Hollywood glamour and luxury go hand-in-hand, which made the aesthetically clean and streamlined washbasin made with Silestone® Blanco Zeus the perfect centrepiece to the area.
'A Garden of Contrasts' Terrace, by DmasC Arquitectos
Casa Decor Madrid's rooftop is a luscious green area; a kind of mini-garden to escape from the urban environment. The space mixes outdoor and indoor elements, with two greenhouses. One of these includes a bar made with Dekton® Entzo, chosen by DmasC Arquitectos. This luxurious colour had made its appearance throughout the exhibition, also being chosen by family company As Interiorista, as well as the interior designer and plastic artist Jaime Jurado for their respective works.
'Dorian's Story' Auditorium, by Silka Barrio
The space designed by interior architect Silka Barrio is one that took visitors to a place where the imagination can run free; a place of stories, fables, legends, and nature. The heavy influence of nature all throughout can be felt with the use of technical textiles, with prints of works from emerging artists showcased on the carpets and tiles. Barrio chose to use Silestone® Eternal Marquina, a deep black with bright white veining, for the catering bar and one of the pieces of furniture.
The Casa Decor 2018 which ended in March saw almost 50,000 visitors walk through its doors. The 54th edition will take place in 2019 at a yet unconfirmed venue in Madrid. Please visit the Cosentino blog to be updated on the details of Cosentino's participation in 2019.
