Cosentino Group bets on Tel Aviv and Amsterdam for launching its 14th and 15th “Cosentino City” worldwide; a multi-purpose dynamic Showroom that works as a comprehensive inspiration platform.
Cosentino City Tel Aviv
Every detail in the space is regarded as an inspiration. It offers an unparalleled technological and sensual experience for the wider community of architects, interior designers, developers, contractors and end consumers. This innovative concept seeks to attract the visitor through an inspirational experience and integral digital service, offered by specialist professionals. Thanks to this concept, the visitors can define, create and visualize their projects using the technological equipment and augmented reality.
Cosentino City Tel Aviv spans a floorspace of 650 sq.m. with three separate spaces, each dedicated to different content. Combined, they add up to a whole, which represents the contemporary, innovative concept at Cosentino.
The heart of the experience is an Atelier, which has been designed as a complete materials library, consisting of a dazzling selection of timber, fabric, handles, faucets, lighting, colors, etc. all designed to inspiration boards just as if they were in a studio of their own.
Digitalization and technology
The experience and precision also achieved through digital means such as a virtual gallery in which visitors can view the colors of the Cosentino surfaces on a large 98” digital board. Digital experience also includes a state-of-the-art 3D space which enables visualization of projects through augmented reality plus full-scale individual tailoring of the design in a large.
The products gallery will showcase examples of applications in flooring, facing, kitchens and ventilated façades including large-format rotating boards with surfaces presenting the new collection currently being launched worldwide –Silestone Loft collection– alongside Cosentino’s iconic, best-selling collections.
“Despite Covid-19 and the measured reopening of the economy, we decided to open the City before the end of this year. The City concept is a great step forward in the exceptional concept of a multi-purpose, dynamic and constantly changing showroom, offering architects, interior designers and private customers a comprehensive inspirational platform alongside a service and information center, where they can see, learn and experience the broad range of the Company’s products”, said Adir Levi, Regional Director of Cosentino Israel.
