Cosentino launches sustainability platform: EARTHIC LAB X FORMAFANTASMA:

In collaboration with FORMAFANTASMA, Silestone by Cosentino presents EARTHIC LAB, a sustainability surfaces sub-brand.

EARTHIC by Silestone®XM is a capsule collection of three unique, sustainable stone surfaces. EARTHIC® combines recycled PET, discarded Dekton fragments and post-industrial glass alongside pioneering bio-resin derived from used cooking oil. Thanks to HybriQ+® technology, these colours are produced with 100% renewable electrical energy and 99% recycled water. EARTHIC® is the first collection to be made with Silestone XM – surfaces containing a maximum silica content of 10%.

By working with recycled and reclaimed materials, these components come together to create something extraordinary – with the aim to significantly decrease the extraction of raw materials, C02 emissions and soil erosion.

Launching at Fuorisalone 2024 in Milan’s iconic Teatro Gerolamo, EARTHIC LAB took visitors on a transformative journey, showcasing the new EARTHIC surfaces whilst introducing a new sustainable approach to surface design using recycled, reused and advanced raw materials. EARTHIC is available in 3 colourways:

“The aim of EARTHIC was to establish a surface project as well as a sub-brand within Cosentino that could become a research platform to investigate how the company could make their processes more sustainable. We did not start from an aesthetic but from the idea of improving the sustainable components within the surface. Our collaboration with Cosentino is exactly this: an attempt to design a product from the inside out where the aesthetic choices also correspond to ethical and sustainable choices. Decision making from this perspective is what is relevant for design today at large”. comments Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin from FormaFantasma.

EARTHIC® LAB received a Special Mention in the Technology category at the Fuorisalone Awards 2024 for its innovation by restoring a balance between humans and their environment – alongside the use of technology in protecting the planet. This award marks a major milestone for the brand, confirming its journey towards sustain ability and environmental responsibility.
