On account of these characteristics, Silestone® Nebula is the ideal choice for decorating kitchens and bathrooms.

Altair, Cygnus, Doradus, Lagoon, Lyra and Merope are the colours that have emerged after a research and development process using the latest technology. As a consequence of this process, these six new colours have been characterised by their immense beauty, deep base colours, movement, continuity of veins, diffused colours, original forms and standardised design between slabs of the same colour. Cosentino is also pleased to announce that the newest colours, Vortium and Dinux, will be available exclusively for six months to the approved fabricators network, after which they will become available for open sale.
