About Silestone Institute

The Silestone Institute was born with the vocation to improve the space and quality of life of people in the home.

Franciso Martínez-Cosentino


The Silestone Institute is an international platform dedicated to research and dissemination of knowledge about the home space.

At the beginning, the Silestone Institute was dedicated to knowledge about the kitchen space. Later, in 2021, aware of the importance of the home as a transforming place for people and its importance in society, the Institute expanded its scope of action to the entire home space.

The home is a vital space in which to feel at ease and in perfect harmony. In turn, people’s actions in the home contribute to transforming cities and the planet, making it more human, more liveable, sustainable, and social.

Aware of this connection between the home and people, the Silestone Institute research, reflects and spreads knowledge about the different rooms in this space, producing studies and informative publications, organising debates and workshops, and offering practical advice, among other things.

In 2017, the Silestone Institute celebrated its 10th anniversary for which a video were created.
