Urban chic has never been this easy

The individualistic, rugged Industrial style is now easy to achieve with Cosentino's latest range of concrete-look, high-performance surfaces available in a variety of colours. Exuding character and suited to a variety of spaces, these highly contemporary, easy-care surfaces are a shortcut to an evocative industrial ambience

The striking Silestone Loft collection by Cosentino offers a contemporary and sophisticated take on the industrial style. It is also the latest Silestone collection of high-performance surfaces that incorporates its new planet-friendly HybriQ+ technology.

The HybriQ+ formula is made with a compound of minerals and reused raw materials, such as recycled glass, and a significant reduction of the presence of crystalline silica. The process uses 100% renewable energy and 98% recycled water.

Replicating the look and feel of concrete, the Silestone Loft collection consists of five contemporary colours, with each capturing the essence of a city suburb that instils a unique industrial beauty within its streets and buildings. 

The new collection of urban colours work in harmony with natural and modern materials.

Industrial style grew in popularity in the mid 20th century, when abandoned inner-city factories, large workshops and warehouses were repurposed into open-plan housing, or what became known as loft apartments. 

With this, materials such as concrete, became a central and popular feature within many homes, turning the industrial style into a trend that is still very much evident today.

The collection’s colours include, Camden, Poblenou, Seaport, Nolita and Corktown – names that represent five iconic neighbourhoods around the world with a distinctive history and industrial aesthetic.

                    _______________________________________________________________________


Silestone Camden

Silestone Camden is inspired by one of London’s most influential alternative neighbourhoods – the sounds of 80s punk, a thousand languages, and is home to hundreds of artists. 

Posters and ephemeral works of art are part of Camden’s history and decorate its exposed brick façades.

Authentic, steely shades and the natural wear and tear of living spaces have inspired this cement grey surface. 

A soft, delicate and consistent grey, with a fine grain and a very subtle white veining, it is a versatile, adaptable colour, easy to incorporate with a variety of decors.

Silestone Poblenou

Silestone Poblenou is inspired by the epicentre of the industrial revolution in Barcelona. Poblenou has a Mediterranean warmth, with an industrial appearance. 

Its old industrial buildings have been turned into fabulous loft spaces surrounded by art galleries, bars and businesses and its essence has inspired Silestone Poblenou, a warm shade of grey with very subtle veining on its surface and a sandy background that brings brightness and offers a comforting texture and familiar ambiance.

Silestone Seaport

Silestone Seaport is a nod to the small seaside district in south-eastern Manhattan, where the past coexists peacefully alongside docks, restaurants and shops. Exposed bricks, worn concrete and characteristic wood from the docks form a chromatic range that has inspired this Silestone colour. 

Thanks to the effect of its colour and shades, Silestone Seaport is very similar to dark, worn cement, and its striking white shades blend in perfectly with the background.

                       _______________________________________________________________________

Silestone Nolita

Silestone Nolita another New York inspired creation is specifically inspired by a neighbourhood that was avant-garde even before it was given the name Nolita (north of Little Italy).

 In the mid-90s, Nolita found its personality and architectural identity that gave it such a unique and distinctive character. With this historical background, Silestone Nolita is the white shade of the Loft collection.

                     _______________________________________________________________________

Silestone Corktown

Silestone Corktown has been inspired by the light and shade of a Detroit neighbourhood, which grew up amidst steam, pistons and the sound of engines. 

Silestone Corktown was successful and prosperous until depression and deterioration crept in and took over. Despite these knock-backs, it regenerated a few decades ago with a renewed beauty and an interesting and intellectual old style. 

This has inspired Silestone Corktown, the most intense, solid and deep black of the Silestone Loft collection. Its dark background blends beautifully with intense brown touches and an extra matte finish.

                               _______________________________________________________________________

Launching as a key feature of the Silestone Loft Collection, is the revolutionary Silestone® HybriQ technology. 

This innovative new technology uses a hybrid formula made up of minerals and reused raw materials, such as recycled glass, to manufacture Silestone surfaces. With HybriQ technology, the presence of crystalline silica is significantly reduced. 

Characterised by Cosentino’s commitment to the environment, circular economy and sustainable management, this new production process uses 98% recycled water and 100% renewable energy.

Thanks to HybriQ+ technology, Cosentino has developed a new generation of Silestone that is more sustainable and respectful to the environment.
