What makes a prodigy? Let’s ask this year’s partner for the 2018 INDE.Award for The Prodigy: Cosentino.
March 21st, 2018
Who can resist the allure of a prodigy? From their preternatural talent to their unflagging work ethic and uncanny ability to predict what’s next on the curve, there’s something undeniably inspiring about someone who is exceptional at their craft. The prodigies are the ones who learnt to run and walk all at once, who are beyond adept at translating even the most wistful of dreams into a reality bigger and brighter than one anyone else can even imagine.
Driven by a goal to “innovate with responsibility”, family-owned Spanish surfaces specialist Cosentino Group is a fitting sponsor for the Prodigy category of this year’s INDE. Awards. For decades, the company has shaped the face of innovative surfaces throughout the global A+D industry, demonstrating a bold, resilient creative spirit that distinguishes it from its competitors. Combining strong R+D capabilities with a future-oriented design methodology, Cosentino Group is a truly formidable design force with the ability to predict the upcoming wants and needs of the global market.
Flexible in the face of change and always relishing a challenge, Cosentino Group innovates to solve the problems of today and anticipates and addresses the problems of tomorrow. The company avails of the latest technological advances and design thinking to craft unique, high performance surface solutions for crafting spaces that stand out. Thanks to a commitment to continuous improvement and innovation, Cosentino Group is constantly growing and evolving. A true prodigy, the group knows that in spite of being at the top of their game there is still much room to grow, and at their core maintains values of international expansion, innovative R+D, respect for the environment and sustainability, and corporate commitment to the wider society and the local communities in which they operate.
This year, the Prodigy category of the INDE. Awards breaks down the boundaries between design disciplines to celebrate professionals at the forefront of their respective practices. The Award honours innovation, bravery, and forward thinking in architecture, interior design, and industrial design, and rewards practitioners who have fearlessly blazed their own trails and cleared the path for others to follow. Such practitioners are evident in all pockets of the Asia Pacific A+D industry, where the prevailing spirit is one of constant progress and self-improvement, commitment to finely honing one’s skills, and considering the big picture.
Cosentino Group believes that design excellence should be recognised and rewarded in order to fuel future generations of creative wunderkinds. The company is excited to support the recognition of remarkable emerging design talent in the Asia Pacific Region and looks forward to seeing prodigies selected by the design community from amongst their peers.
