Macael Awards 2019


Dekton - 03.01.2020

Cosentino is pleased to announce that three of the projects awarded in the 2019 Macael Awards have the quality and functionality of products by Cosentino.

Design Award

The Design Award goes to the ToHa building, a genuine 29-storey office complex located in the center of Tel Aviv, Israel. Its unique facetted volume, inspired by the geometry of an iceberg, was designed by designer Ron Arad, together with Avner Yashar's local team, to house an office complex.

More than 28,000 m2 of Dekton® by Cosentino cover the complex, distributed in the facade, the floor, the elevators, the ceilings and the interior divisions. The more than 10,000 pieces of Dekton® used were manufactured and cut at Cosentino's headquarters in Cantoria and transported by ship to Israel.

International Europe Award

Located on the so-called golden mile of Madrid, the International Europe Award goes to the Lagasca 99 residential building, whose façade has been created with 330 pieces, weighing 2,200 kg each, of Natural Stone Travertine by Cosentino.

Flooring, cladding and stairs in common areas have been made from the same material. All the main kitchens have worktops in Dekton®, colour Keyla, and the service kitchens have been manufactured in Silestone® Blanco Zeus.

International Africa Award

The Africa International Award goes to The Leonardo Tower, located in Sandton, Johannesburg, which has become the tallest building in Africa at 234 meters high, divided into 55 floors.

The work is functional, technologically advanced and already a symbol for South Africa. With a surface area of 15,000 m2 for premium offices and luxury housing, the Architecture Company Co-Arc International project houses 24,350 m2 of the ultra-compact Dekton® surface on its façade, lobby and entrance columns, and 3,526 m2 of Silestone® on kitchen and bathroom countertops in bars, restaurants, gyms and spas.
