NEW YORK, NY — Silestone, a world leader in quartz surfacing, was recently selected by Sotheby’s New York to create bars and tables to be used during a series of exclusive events leading up to its prestigious Contemporary, Modern and Impressionist art sales held during the month of June.

Silestone was selected to craft the special tables because of its extensive color offering and sleek contemporary finish. Created in Silestone’s rosy pink and ashy gray hues known as “Love” and “Kensho,” the tables celebrate the excitement and importance of the iconic Jeff Koons Pink Panther, an exquisitely crafted porcelain sculpture that has been hailed as one of the most important works in the contemporary sale.

“Silestone was thrilled to be selected by Sotheby’s to be involved in these significant events,” said Lorenzo Marquez, Vice President of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “Silestone has a continued interest in supporting the art world. As we continue to innovate as a company, the art and design communities remain a huge source of inspiration.”

Recently, Silestone also participated in a unique exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York that celebrated the architectural transformation of the kitchen titled “Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen.” As an industry leader and innovator, Silestone and its parent company, Cosentino, remain at the forefront of design trends, adapting and advancing its business and new product innovations to support the design community worldwide, reports the company.
