The Australian International Furniture Fair (AIFF) & Decor + Design is elevating this year, with an increased focus on Australian Made and socially conscious design. Cosentino, one of the world’s leading surface brands, will be sponsoring an exciting new feature: The Green Design Hub.
Curated by Circular Design Thinking, The Green Design Hub will be a deliciously interactive and sensory space where visitors can experience the latest innovations in stylishly sustainable, closed loop furniture and design products.
Cosentino: Beautifully Designed and Made Surfaces
Sustainability lies at the heart of Cosentino Group. The global, family-owned company has an innovative research and development program, which emphasises respect for the environment.
The company constantly seeks to reduce its carbon footprint, find ways to reuse materials and feed back into the circular economy.
Cosentino produces design solutions that offer value and inspiration to people’s lives. This goal is made possible by pioneering brands that are leaders in their respective segments, such as Silestone®, Dekton® and Sensa by Cosentino®. Technologically advanced surfaces, they allow the creation of unique designs for the home and public spaces.
Meet Dekton: The Carbon Neutral, Designer Stone
Dekton is the only Cradle-to-Grave Carbon Neutral surface on the market. Cosentino offset 100% of the CO2 emissions over the entire product life cycle. Interior designers can create soulful spaces with a beautiful surface that combines beauty, functionality and sustainability.
It has also effectively recoded natural stone, upgrading it through technology into an ultracompact surface. Dekton is a sophisticated mixture of more than 20 minerals extracted from nature. Dekton’s exclusive press then generates 25,000 tonnes of uniform pressure. To put that in perspective, that’s 2.5 times the weight of the Eiffel Tower!
This ultra-compaction process means that Dekton has no micro-defects that cause tensions or weak points and almost null porosity. It perfects in a few hours what nature creates in thousands of years.
Celebrating Sustainable Innovation at The Green Design Hub
The Australian International Furniture Fair (AIFF) & Decor + Design will take place from 13 – 16 July at Melbourne Exhibition Centre, with the theme of Elevate.
