Currently situated across the world in Milan, Manhattan, Sydney and Singapore, London will be the fifth Cosentino City showroom to open.
Designed to be a destination for architects and designers to meet, see Cosentino’s product range and find out how it can be utilised for vast commercial projects, a Cosentino City is a space configured to promote the relationship between professionals and the Cosentino commercial team. A social and dynamic area where everyone speaks the same language, the City allows the architecture and design communities to experience Cosentino interactively; to see, feel and understand its wide range of products first hand.
The Cosentino City London offers workspace, an inviting atmosphere, Wi-Fi and complimentary coffee. Cosentino wants to encourage architects and designers to meet at the City with clients or simply come to find inspiration for future designs. Clerkenwell is a hub for world-class brands with a buzzing cultural scene; no other part of London has as many international design showrooms, making it the ideal location for Cosentino’s new ’commerical design centre’.
The new commerical design centre is headed up by manager, Diego Florio, who says, ”The London Cosentino City is a flagship for the UK and will go beyond the idea of a ’showroom’. It will offer inspiration for anyone that visits, but overall we see it as a commercial design centre, where professionals can bring their clients, have meetings, and get excited about the possibilities. Product interaction is also a key factor as it allows more vision for potential projects. The celebration events we are having throughout London Design Festival in Clerkenwell, the heart of the architectural community, will hopefully give a greater insight into how people can utilise our space – and get creative!”
Cooking demonstrations, CPDs, lectures, product launches and others events will be held in the London City showroom regularly from September 2016.
