NEW YORK, NY -- On June 13th, Silestone hosted the first of three Trendspotter presentations at Hearst Tower with John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon. Known for their cleverly colorful design aesthetic, Loecke and Oliver highlighted the latest product innovations and trends from KBIS to a crowd of more than 75 design professionals and editors.

Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception and networking with incredible views overlooking Central Park from the 44th floor of the Hearst Tower. Silestone launched the inaugural Trendspotters program this year at KBIS in Chicago by bringing together four leading designers from across the country to discover the latest products, design innovation and color trends. Together, the Silestone Trendspotters utilized 45 years of collective experience and a keen eye for great design to report on new products in real‐time via social media and then returned to share their favorite design highlights to colleagues in their respective markets.

Atlanta-area Trendspotter, Mark Williams, of Mark Williams Design Associates brought his snapshots from KBIS to life in an engaging presentation to the Atlanta design community on June 14. Los Angeles-area Trendspotter, Kim Lewis, of Kim Lewis Designs, also offered her highlights from the industry's largest kitchen and bath show to architects and designers at the Anaheim Cosentino Center on June 20.

The winning projects speak to the A&D community's commitment to using a material that is technically advanced, aesthetically pleasing and manufactured with a focus on sustainability. Nine projects in three categories were recognized: residential, institutional and commercial. The grand-prize winners include a century-old, three-floor adaptive re-use project (Schaefer-Graf Residence), a 675,000-square-foot entertainment arena (Barclays Center) and a LEED-certified government building (NIST) in addition to six projects who received honorable mentions from the jury.
