Open Call for entries for the students contest Cosentino Design Challenge 2019. Deadline June 1

Cosentino, the leading Spanish global company in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for the world of architecture and design, is once again seeking to promote the talent and creativity of future international architecture and design professionals.

One year on, Cosentino is launching a call for entries for the Cosentino Design Challenge (CDC), which is celebrating its thirteenth edition. The aim of this competition is to encourage students from all over the world to create sustainable and innovative projects that boast outstanding conceptual and technical quality, with a creative and technical emphasis placed on the topics set for each category.

In the Architecture section, Cosentino proposes students to reflect on “Cosentino and water”. In the Design category, the subject is based on “Cosentino and energy”. These represent two passionate proposals in which the company provides students with unfettered freedom to research and create and where they must incorporate one or more of the innovative products that Cosentino offers to the world of architecture and design: the Silestone® quartz surface, the ultra-compact Dekton® surface and/or the natural stone range with exclusive anti-stain Sensa protection by Cosentino®.
