NEW YORK, NY -- Cosentino, the global leader in natural stone, quartz, recycled and architectural surfacing, is hosting "A Taste of Dekton," a series of refreshing events taking place at their 29 regional Cosentino Centers from June to August. Architects, designers, builders, tile contractors, fabricators and consumers are invited to visit their local Cosentino Center for a first look at the newest introductions to the Dekton product line. Select markets will also feature two colors of Etchings, the latest additions to the Silestone Influencer Series designed by the Silestone Trendspotters.

"This national event series will not only illustrate Cosentino's development in the diverse color offerings for Dekton, but will reiterate the unique performance capabilities this innovative surfacing material offers," said Lorenzo Marquez, vice president of marketing for Cosentino North America.

In addition to featuring Dekton ultra-compact surfacing color additions, including the expansion of the XGloss collection, the event will formally introduce the Dekton large-format tile program. "A Taste of Dekton" will also include creative live demonstrations showcasing the performance benefits of the material. Ice cream and toppings will be mixed directly on Dekton surfacing, illustrating the material's durability and resistance to scratching and extreme temperature changes.

The remaining events will take place on the following dates:

  • June 21: Anaheim, CA; Seattle, WA
  • June 22: Cincinnati, OH; Fairfield, NJ; Sacramento, CA
  • June 23: Charlotte, NC; Orlando, FL; San Diego, CA

Silestone Trendspotters will attend the following events to showcase the Silestone Etchingscollection: Christopher Kennedy in Los Angeles, CA; Drew McGukin in New York, NY; and Theresa Casey in Toronto, Canada. Members of ASID and IDC in attendance, and who make a charitable donation, will be entered into a raffle to win a trip to Spain to visit the Cosentino global headquarters.
