Gandiablasco and the Cosentino group join forces
GANDIABLASCO has signed an agreement of collaboration with the Cosentino group in order to include the exclusive Cosentino ultra-compact Dekton® surface within its collections.
Both companies have a solid trajectory behind them making a reference in their respective sectors, with a similar history. The Cosentino group is one of the most international of all Spanish companies with products distributed in more than 80 countries.
Family owned, it produces innovative surfaces that aimed the world of architecture and design. They created world leading brands, such as Silestone®, Dekton® and Sensa by Cosentino®.
The group, with its headquarters located in Almería, the south of Spain, started off with the extraction and transformation of marble from the Sierra de los Filabres and since 1979 the company’s expansion and research has involved investing in the latest technologies to produce innovative materials.
Dekton® by Cosentino is one of its most prestigious brands. Developed exclusively by the group’s I+D department, the surface is manufactured using Cosentino’s TSP (Particle Sintering Technology), a manufacturing process that involves the application of an accelerated high pressure and high temperature that mimics what nature itself does over the course of millions of years, the time it takes to produce natural stone.
The result is a highly resistant material that is practically immune to the absorption of water. In addition it offers excellent colour stability and can withstand any climatic conditions, which makes it ideal for the outdoor furniture that GANDIABLASCO designs and makes. The GANDIABLASCO family firm was founded in 1941. Its long trajectory begins with the textile industry in Valencia, to outdoor furniture design during the 90s and which nowadays is distributed in over 90 countries over the five continents including several of its own showrooms.
77 years and two generations later GANDIABLASCO continues. The brand identity came about after the reinvention of the company’s business and creative strategy which introduced design and innovation as a defining philosophy. The style that today characterises GANDIABLASCO is informed by its personality and Mediterranean roots that little by little have come to represent the company’s distinguishing values. On the other hand the firm’s tradition in the textile sector is still being carried on with the manufacture of rugs ad interior accessories, through the commercial activity of the GAN brand.
The move towards architecture on the part of GANDIABLASCO came about with the creation of Outdoor Spaces, modular collections and pergolas, designs that reflect contemporary architecture that expanded upon their market niche. The refined design and architectural quality of its first collections, manufactured using aluminium profiles combined with polyethylene covered a void in the market at that time and confirmed the international expansion of the business.
The quintessential architectural silhouette of their design defines the GANDIABLASCO collections’ personality, together with the idea of including numerous elements within each collection.
More than furniture, the company makes original products that are both elegant and hard wearing that combine together to create outdoor ambiences that can be enjoyed in the stylish tradition of the Mediterranean. Since 2017 the brand has set itself a new challenge, the creation of DIABLA, a new outdoor brand with original and ingenious designs sold online.
GANDIABLASCO has, over the years, conceived new collections created by national and international architects and designers, as Spaces that allows to enjoy life outdoor all every day of the year. The agreement signed with the Cosentino group allows it to continue to evolve offering better design together with the most innovative materials on the market.
