Capturing the Ethereal Moments

Capturing the Ethereal Moments

The latest range of finishes from Silestone® by Cosentino evoke the senses with inspiration from the ever-changing beauty of the sky.

From the expressive and gentle expanse of a hazy summer’s day to the captivating warmth that radiates as the sun sets – Silestone® by Cosentino has released four new colourways, each drawing reference to the ephemerality of the shifting skyline.

The new range is aptly titled Silestone® Ethereal, casting a captivating imagery through each of the new marble-inspired colours. Using white as the base with a variety fine veining and striations, each colour exudes a subtle yet noticeable shift, making each one appropriate to any kind of interior setting.

Using contrasting yet versatile designs, with a distinct and sleek white foundation – each of the four colours brings something unique.

Ethereal Glow

Ethereal Glow is all elegance. Set with a warming and golden tone that merges with the soft grey veining, this colour is undoubtedly inspired by the rich glow of a magical sunset – it’s pure and classic with just the right touch of warmth to complement metals.

Using short grey and black veins as striking points of depth, Ethereal Noctis is the bold choice, using contrast and modernity to great effect. As rich as the navy of a star-speckled sky, while set on the same white backdrop of the other colours in the range, Ethereal Noctis is not for the faint of heart.

Dynamic yet filled with a calming character, Ethereal Haze expresses the movement of clouds as they push across a mountain. Its fluffiness and tranquillity cast through a swirling range of grey tones through its interplay of gradients and blended neutrality.

Bringing in a cooler toned edge, Ethereal Dusk is underpinned by a bluish tone, which brings a modern and sophisticated touch wherever it’s applied. The soft veining and cool greys hark to the quiet peacefulness and solemnity that can be found in the final moments before darkness sets in each night.

In what is undoubtedly an industry-defining move, the range also introduces Cosentino’s new HybriQ+® technology. The first of its kind in its category, this technology rewrites the production and composition of Silestone®, making it the first hybrid surface in the global market with low silica content. This is achieved through the incorporation of a new hybrid formulation of mineral raw materials alongside elements of a recycled origin.

This new and innovative composition not only improves the depth and translucency of the material, further enhancing the design profile of the series as result, it also increases the sustainability credentials of the product and manufacturing process itself.
