The surfacing leader expands its Silestone® portfolio for the first time in two years with innovative new sustainable design solutions.
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (July 12, 2023) Cosentino Group, the Spanish global leader in the production and distribution of innovative and sustainable surfaces for the world of architecture and design, has added two collections to its Silestone® portfolio, Le Chic and Urban Crush, which feature innovative design processes and leading sustainable technology. As the first collections from Silestone® to debut in two years, these launches mark a highly anticipated moment for the brand. Silestone® aims to disrupt and create trends, and with Le Chic’s one-of-a-kind detailing and Urban Crush’s refreshing palette, these collections bring a luxurious allure to any interior space.
“At Cosentino, I believe we must strive to uphold our core values of innovation and sustainability with each product we put forward,” said Valentin Tijeras, Product, Innovation and Quality Vice President at Cosentino. “With Le Chic, we’ve made great strides in terms of surfacing technology by manufacturing the veining in such detail, and Urban Crush represents our constant pulse on modern design trends. This is an exciting milestone for the Silestone® portfolio, and we’re proud to be able to continue to manufacture these collections sustainably with our HybriQ+® technology.”
Silestone® Le Chic
The Le Chic collection is an elegant and sophisticated offering at the intersection of fashion and design. The patterns feature expressive veins and metallic accents that stand out against neutral backdrops like cream or deep blues and blacks, obtaining designs full of depth. All together, the collection offers the charm of Victorian and Parisian spaces, speaking to nostalgia with a modern yet timeless execution.
Le Chic also represents an advancement in Cosentino’s surface manufacturing, as the detailed veining requires an all new system of design. The intricate, interlocking veins are made possible by the brand’s new molding system, giving life to particles and minerals of a wide range of sizes and creating an incredible new texture. The Le Chic collection is composed of six designs:
Eclectic Pearl features intricate veining, texture and metallic accents across the entire
surface, like delicate diamonds on jewelry.
Versailles Ivory is a white shade with gradient effects, defined veins and golden metallic
Victorian Silver creates a marbling effect with silver sparkles. Its cold white background
provides a perfect canvas for dark patterns with silver tones.
Parisian Bleu is a deep bluish tone with a powerful character. It is inspired by the shades
seen in famous Imperial Roman stones combined with fine ochre-toned veins.
Bohemian Flame presents subtle sinuous veins with metallic copper inlays. It is inspired by the movement of the golden flows of lava that generate scars on the volcanic soil.
Romantic Ash features large rivers and incrustations of grains in various sizes, similar to the Milky Way visible in a clear starry sky.
Silestone® Urban Crush
The Urban Crush collection is inspired by the diverse textures of industrial and urban style. Materials such as concrete, limestone, bronze and ash come together to replicate the feeling of a lively cityscape, achieving the perfect backdrop for an industrial, modern space. The new Urban Crush offerings speak to an eclectic side of design as its tones beautifully complement vintage, vibrant interiors. The collection’s dusty tones are incredibly versatile
when viewed up close, and the various colorways are full of life to deliver movement to a space. The Urban Crush collection is made up of four colorways:
Lime Delight incorporates textured beige tones that bring bright, warm shades similar to
Concrete Pulse features a natural raw gray tone that plays with light and shadow.
Brass Relish mimics finely grained sandstone and blends modern and vintage design styles.
Cinder Craze is a modern reinterpretation of black sandstone and its black, speckled tones
add style, personality, and life to industrial-inspired spaces.
Both the Silestone® Le Chic and Urban Crush collections continue Cosentino’s mission of industry-leading eco-friendly production, as they are manufactured with the brand’s patented HybriQ+® technology, using 99% reused water and 100% renewable energy and incorporating a minimum of 20% recycled raw materials in its composition.
