Posted on 18 October 2021 by cradmin4

The Cosentino Group presented the 16th edition of the international Cosentino Design Challenge (CDC). The launch event took place in Madrid on October 5, 2021. During the event the two themes that require research by participants were announced. The CDC jury will be looking for proposals that are environmentally conscious and sustainable, offer conceptual and technical quality and demonstrate innovation.

In the Design category, the theme is “Re-thinking the creative and work space at home.” The aim is for participants to develop innovative designs intended for homeworking.

In the Architecture category, the theme is “The fifth façade: a reflection on the roof.” Proposals in this category must combine energy use with livability, sustainability and design.

The CDC leaves students free to develop their projects with the only requirement that the final project includes some of the innovative surfaces that Cosentino offers the world of architecture and design such as Silestone®, Dekton® and Sensa by Cosentino®.

The submission period for entries began October 1, 2021 and ends on June 1, 2022. The jury will consist of a professor from each collaborating school, an internationally renowned architect or designer and a Cosentino representative. The winner will be announced in June 2022. Each category will have three first prizes of €1,000 (approx. $1,160 USD) each, and three runners-up. Visit www.cosentinodesignchallenge.org for more information.

13th Cosentino Design Challenge Calls for Entries

Posted on 29 October 2018 by cradmin

Cosentino has officially launched the 13th edition of the Cosentino Design Challenge (CDC). The competition is open to students enrolled in the 2018-2019 academic year at any educational center or polytechnic offering courses in design, architecture, interior architecture or other similar fields of study. The international competition offers students a chance to participate in a global professional competition.

Composed of two categories, the 13th edition of Cosentino Design Challenge ’s architecture brief asks students to reflect on “Cosentino and Water”. The design brief is focused on “Cosentino and Energy”. In both categories, students have complete freedom in conceptualizing their sustainable and innovative projects. The final project must include one or more products manufactured by Cosentino: Silestone natural quartz surface, Dekton ultracompact surface, and Sensa protected natural stone.

Each concept must boast technical qualities, with a creative emphasis placed on the theme set for each category. The jury will take into consideration the following criteria:

  • Conceptual and technical quality of the project
  • Analytical study, thought process and research of the subject
  • Research on the spatial experience of the surroundings
  • Creativity of the design
  • Innovativeness of the design
  • Environmental respect of the design
  • Adaptation of the project idea to the expressive capacity of Cosentino brand materials and products
  • New ideas for materials, finishes, applications, etc.
  • Feasibility for the development and construction of the projects presented
  • Adaptation of the chosen medium for the presentation with regards to graphics, expressiveness and the kind of idea presented
  • Presentational quality of the design

Throughout the competition, students are encouraged to visit Cosentino Showrooms to discover the company’s wide range of products.

For each category, the following prizes will be awarded: one first prize, one second prize, one third prize, and special mentions. First three winners will be awarded the equivalent of €1,000 each in the currency of the country where a student is awarded. Winners will also receive special mentions and global recognition.

The competition encourages student research on different conceptual approaches. This includes the layout of spaces, materials and the constructive systems that define them, via experimentation with Cosentino products.

The project submission period closes on June 1, 2019. The judging panel will announce the winning projects and their designers in late June. All projects must be submitted in digital format via the competition website. http://cosentinodesignchallenge.org.
