Rooted in the industrial, the colors capture the essence of neighborhoods celebrated for their raw, purely urban beauty: Camden, Poblenou, Seaport, Nolita and Corktown.
Also debuting: Silestone HybriQ+ technology — an industry-first production process and new hybrid formulation of Silestone comprised of minerals and reused raw materials, with a significant reduction in the use of quartz — all to promote greater safety in the production and fabrication sectors of the industry.
“It is the connection between the past and the present that led us to the creation of the Silestone Loft Series,” says Valentin Tijeras Garcia, product and R&D corporate director for Cosentino Group. “To capture the essence and energy of this mid-20th century industrial style, we studied the architectural bones and textures of abandoned factories. It’s that same deliberately unfinished look of concrete, cement, beams and pipes have been embraced in homes today and evolved into a leading design trend.”
Silestone Loft Colorways:
- Camden is inspired by one of London’s most influential alternative neighborhoods– beloved for its diversity, eclectic residents and vibrant art scene. A soft, delicate and consistent gray, with a fine grain and a very subtle white veining, Camden captures the natural wear and tear that gives cement its character.
- Poblenou serves as a nod to the epicenter of Barcelona’s industrial revolution, one of the city’s most modern and creative neighborhoods. Its warm shade of gray with subtle veining on a sandy background brings brightness– offering a comforting texture and familiar ambiance.
- Seaport channels the peacefulness of the weather-worn docks found in the seaside district of lower Manhattan. Similar to a dark, worn cement, the subtle streaks of white blend perfectly in the background for the perfect touch of contrast.
- Nolita, another New York-inspired creation, celebrates the avant-garde spirit and strong architectural identity that gave the neighborhood its distinctive character. Nolita is both elegant and industrial. Blended with shades of whites and light gray, it creates an elegant, fine line — free of strong contrasts.
- Corktown captures both the light and shade of a Detroit neighborhood that grew up amidst steam, pistons and the sound of engines — one that has reaped prosperity, endured deterioration, and regenerated once more. As the most intense, solid and deep black of the Loft collection, its dark matte finish blends beautifully with intense brown touches.
