Silestone by Cosentino, the leading global hybrid mineral surface for the world of architecture and design, introduces the first carbon neutral collection in the quartz surfaces and engineered stone market, Sunlit Days.
Demonstrating the brand’s commitment to sustainable surfaces, Cosentino is dedicated to offsetting the CO² emissions of the entire life cycle of the Silestone Sunlit Days series.
This has been achieved by Cosentino calculating its carbon footprint, reducing impact and offsetting its emissions by continually participating in voluntary offsetting projects which are duly certified and in the framework of the Voluntary Carbon Market. What's more, this initiative is complemented by a partnership program for the preservation of the seabed.
Sunlit Days is a collection of five colours inspired by the Mediterranean, our connection with nature and most importantly, colour - the distinguishing feature that has made Silestone a distinctive leader in the world of quartz and engineered stone surfaces since its inception in 1990.
The range explores a journey through light and colour, with a fresh style and aged Mediterranean tones which have been influenced by human values and simple, profound ways of living. Recycled content in the collection’s composition provides a worn look with depth and richness to each colour.
The five colours - Faro White, Cincel Grey, Arcilla Red, Cala Blue and Posidonia Green - represent unique stories, experiences and expressions. They are a tribute to the way of life of real people who have found their true essence by the Mediterranean.
Faro White, the white of the Mediterranean
"Faro White represents the white of the Mediterranean and its sun-drenched walls which symbolise simplicity and serenity. A powdered white that gives calm and tranquility to spaces, this colour embraces a silky, smooth texture. It pairs well with natural fibers, aged woods and metals with a matte finish."
Cincel Grey, a balance between warm and cool
"Cincel Grey is a fine-grained, silky grey - a shade that performs at its best when bathed in light. It is neutral and versatile, balanced between warm and cool, while its soft texture is captivating. Ideal for a rustic setting, it works well with earthy colour accents and durable fibres such as plush, felt and denim."
Arcilla Red, an earthy red that breathes fire
"The Mediterranean breathes fire, and this is just what Arcilla Red is, an earthy red shade that promotes cosiness - ideal for rustic and bohemian spaces. Its soft texture blends harmoniously with its beauty."
Cala Blue, a vibrant deep blue
"Talking about the Mediterranean means talking about the sea and its breeze, vastness and infinite horizon. Cala Blue is a deep and sophisticated blue colour that vibrates with the rest of the elements that surround it, and its texture feels like the caress of the sea. Versatile and elegant, it can be combined with dark metals for a modern look, or classic nude colours and light woods."
Posidonia Green, a natural green where time stands still
"The treasure of the Mediterranean Sea gives its name to this serene green colour that conveys the beauty of the Posidonia meadows. Energy, joy and nature come together in this proposal ready to surprise and hypnotise with its soft and delicate texture. Pair with bamboo, soft textures and natural fibres for a bright and elegant space which helps to bring the outdoors in."
