The international competition Cosentino Design Challenge is now approaching its twelfth edition. It is promoted by Grupppo Cosentino and aims to promote talent and encourage the creativity of students from all over the world.
It is structured around two distinct categories: architecture students are invited to reflect on the theme "Cosentino and the dramatic arts", whereas Design faculty contestants are requested to focus on the theme "Cosentino and light". Participants are granted the utmost freedom during end project design and development phases. Projects must involve the use of one product from the Cosentino range, a choice between the natural quartz Silestone®, the ultra-compact surfaces of Dekton® and the range of natural granites, Sensa®.
The new edition was presented at Cosentino City, Madrid. On the occasion, winners of the previous edition were awarded and Luis Fernández-Galiano made a precious contribution in his discussion on "The transformation of the kitchen interior over the last two centuries".
Applications are now open and projects can be submitted until 1st June 2018. All projects must be submitted in digital format via the official competition website www.cosentinodesignchallenge.org, where you can also find a full version of the regulations.
