NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Silestone, the world leader in quartz surfacing, proudly announces the launch of its new website www.silestoneusa.com, after significant investments to enhance the consumer experience and connect with end users.  In conjunction with the launch, the Silestone brand releases a stunning new online video titled "Above Everything Else," produced by Alex Roman, an acclaimed director from Alicante, Spain, who is known for revolutionizing the 3D world.

"The launch of our new U.S. consumer website and this innovative video is an exciting milestone for Silestone," said Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing for Cosentino North America.  "It allows us to portray our global messaging and product values, while allowing our consumers to further connect with the brand," he added.  

"Above Everything Else" shows a new vision for kitchen countertops through a blend of surrealism and animation.  Using a unique fusion of 100% computer generated images, sounds and effects, Alex Roman showcases the raw properties of quartz and the finished characteristics of Silestone. The video has received praise in Europe and will become part of a new Silestone advertising campaign in the U.S.

The new Silestone website features a vast array of design options from Silestone Natural Quartz, which is available in over 65 colors, two textures, and contains built-in antimicrobial properties.  The website provides consumers with an organized way to get the latest product information, view a design gallery, and locate products nearby.  The site will also track the path of Silestone's mobile showroom, Estino, and showcase relevant product news and exciting kitchen reveals from ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition, where Silestone is featured almost weekly.  

The launch of the new Silestone website is an important move for Cosentino as it continues to significantly expand its presence in the U.S.  To meet increasing demand for its products, Cosentino announced, earlier this year, that it will open ten COSENTINO CENTERS by the end of 2011, a concept already proven and an essential fixture in Europe, where the company has its global headquarters.  The new website will support this expansion and service the online community.

"Enhancing Silestone's online presence further compliments our growth strategy for 2011.  We believe our consumers need to have direct access to valuable information when making educated buying decisions," Marquez added.
