‘Little Spain’ is more than just a bit of Spain in the heart of New York City. It’s an innovative, somewhat revolutionary space, and without a doubt a celebration of the ‘Spain Brand.’
The purpose of the ‘Little Spain’ project is to bring authentic Spanish cuisine to New York in a space that reflects the country, with all its nuances and traditions. As the architect explains, there were three direct sources of inspiration: our markets, the typical Spanish town, and our food.
Cosentino took part in the initiative from the start. Its surfaces have been instrumental in showcasing the best and most innovative applications and decoration for the professional ‘Made in Spain’ restaurant sector, eventually supplying almost 700 m2 of Dekton® y Silestone® products. The project also provides for exclusivity: “There is a secret room… with a table for only 10 people that is entirely made of Dekton Kairos, including the wall, the floor, and the table/kitchen itself.”
Juli Capilla chose Cosentino materials “because of their performance and because they’re a Spanish product.” In the renowned architect’s opinion, Cosentino products are ideal for these uses. “We had a range of colors and textures that were guaranteed to be resistant and reliable, which in a place of so much traffic and wear and tear as this, was fundamental.” One could say that the final result of ‘Little Spain’ is a “living organism” which New Yorkers and visitors alike can now make their own.
