Silestone Cygnus is a mid-to-light grey quartz stone material with delicate random ligh grey veining in its surface that reinterprets the organic beauty of natural stones such as Emperador Grey, Grigio Adriatico and other classic Mediterranean marbles with a minimal maintenance requirement.
Silestone Cygnus belongs to the Nebula Series of Silestone which consists of 6 stunning colours with natural looks and irregular shades of veining inspired by earth.
Cygnus is a material made with approximately 95% pure quartz content, making it one of the strongest yet most adaptable surfaces in interior and architectural design.
Its anti-bacterial treatment makes it ideal for areas in which hygiene are a must (food preparation, healthcare facilities, universities and schools, etc) and its incredible strength meets the requirements of demanding areas that need hard wearing materials with great aesthetics and consistency throughout.
For specifications that require seamless large pieces, Silestone Cygnus offers slabs with dimensions of 3040x1380mm which will minimize the number of joints and provide opportunities to have large, seamless designs.
Silestone quartz also provides the durability, technology and an extensive range of colours with the consistency that each design requires and thicknesses of 12mm, 20mm and 30mm that will suit both traditional and modern architectural designs.
Lastly, like all Silestone quartz surfaces, Altair comes with a genuine manufacturer’s warranty of 25 years upon product registration which bring peace of mind at the time of protecting a wise investment that will bring value to any residential and commercial home and properties.
Silestone surfaces are available in a Suede finish; this tactile texture surface is also adaptable to more traditional and/or industrial settings and features. It also offers a Volcano Finish, which has a heavy texture which will suit contemporary as well as traditional and industrial spaces.
