Cosentino Extends Design Challenge Submission Deadline

The Cosentino Group is extending the deadline for the submission of projects for the 14th edition of the international Cosentino Design Challenge (CDC).

Cosentino has spent years backing the talent of future architecture and design professionals and the present global crisis will not halt this initiative. A change is, however, being made to the deadlines previously set in order to adapt to the academic situation in which universities and schools, as well as students, currently find themselves. The new submission date for applications for this contest will be July 31. The final decision of the jury will be reached and winners announced on September 28 and will take place entirely online.

The CDC is an initiative which entails a true research-based and creative challenge for students of architecture and design the world over. It is a unique opportunity to connect students with the international business that is Cosentino, as well as its innovative materials and products.

Cosentino Design Challenge 14 Themes

In the Architecture category, Cosentino proposes project development based on the theme “Cosentino and inhabiting the urban space (street room)”. In the Design category, students must work on the subject “Cosentino and local tradition: contemporary craftsmanship”.

For these two intriguing proposals for which the company provides students with unfettered freedom to research and create, the only requirement is that they must include one of the innovative Cosentino products: the Silestone® quartz surface, the ultra-compact Dekton® surface or Sensa by Cosentino®, the natural stone range with exclusive anti-stain protection.

The deadline for submission will be July 31, 2020. Submissions will be made digitally, as usual, through the contest’s official website. All the submission requirements, as well as the criteria to be taken into account by the jury, will be available in the legal conditions found at
