The world leader in innovative surfaces makes a statement in the commercial interior design scene
As we become more affluent and blessed with leisure time, style becomes a salient part of our lives. This booming interest also extends to and is imbued into architecture and interior designs, and the surface industry is driving to meet the demands of both the residential and commercial scenes.
After 4 decades of global expansion and growth, Cosentino, the leading global firm in the
production and distribution of innovative surfaces for the world of architecture and design has made a name for itself by being a prominent player especially in the residential design scene.
Cosentino products are no stranger to being sourced and used as kitchen and bathroom
countertops, washbasins, flooring and siding, and now the Spanish multinational company is looking to reiterate its presence in the commercial design scene.
What makes Cosentino products really stand out is its commitment to produce and develop
innovative and technological-advanced surfaces to provide value for its customers. In the
commercial scene, the Silestone and Dekton brand by Cosentino stand out due to its versatility and nature that is able to withstand rough conditions indoors and outdoors.
Silestone is Cosentino’s quartz brand that offers clients over 50 colours with different textures, formats, edges and thickness, hues and styles. Made of more than 90% quartz, Silestone is stain, acid, shock and scratch resistant, thus providing outstanding durability and resistance for easy maintenance.
The new ultracompact surface by Cosentino, Dekton, also provides an impressive range of more than 60 colours across 8 collections with different hues and styles. Dekton slabs and surfaces come in various thickness and sizes (4mm, 8mm, 12mm, 20mm ) as compared to most suppliers that carry only 2 thickness options, making it the designer’s choice in the market.
Made of technological material composed of porcelain, glass and quartz, Dekton is high UV, high scratch, stain, high fire, heat, slip, abrasion, thawing and freezing resistant.
Both Silestone and Dekton surfaces are game-changers in the world of design as they are
available in cut-to-size-formats which provide a seamless continuity and greater sense of
elegance in a design.
Mark Collar, General Manager of Cosentino Malaysia said, “Cosentino has been one of the
strongest players in the industry for the past 4 decades thanks to our innovative and versatile offerings and we will continue to deliver and meet our consumers’ expectations and demands with our quality products.”
With the variety of designs, thickness and sizes Cosentino is offering, the company has played a major role in various commercial projects around Asia. Here are some projects proudly using Cosentino’s industrial collection:

introduced an AI-powered “smart restaurant” at Marina Square, Singapore last year. The hotpot chain introduces an futuristic dining experience with a personalised menu, robot servers, sound and light projections.
Cosentino’s Dekton Soke and Silestone Desert Silver have been incorporated to the beauty room vanity tops as well as the dining room floor of the restaurant.
