Brand new Silestone by Cosentino Brooklyn and Silver Lake, following with Silestone Eternal Noir, as well as new Dekton Olimpo, Bergen, Arga, Taga, Sogne, Korso.

Cosentino introduces new Dekton line called “Chrimica” that combines the qualities expected by the chef in all of us. A trendy palette of grey colors, that as well as other dekton slabs are is an ultra-sophisticated, capable of creating spaces that make the day to day preparation of food a pleasant experience that precedes the pleasure of sharing a meal with friends or family. Cosentino featured also a game changer Dekton Slim. A half the thickness of the thinnest slab Dekton previously offered. That means, a lighter and manageable format not only for kitchen and bathroom countertops, but also as furniture, cabinetry doors and drawers, backsplash in kitchen and bathroom, and wall cladding.

Dekton is highly resistant to ultra violet (UV) light and will not fade or degrade over time making it perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications.
