At this year’s Singapore Indesign, one can expect a visual treat at Cosentino’s showroom. The global leader in production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design will be collaborating with designers from both fashion and interior design industries. The collaboration breaks through conventional design perspectives and adds life to the 4 inspiring colours: Qatar, Manhattan, Vienna and Nayla.
In line with Cosentino Group’s belief that possibilities are limitless in this modern and vibrant city, the new colour range from the Basiq Collection is versatile and exudes an alluring beauty regardless where they are installed. Qatar, Manhattan and Vienna are the new colours in the Dekton® XGloss range, the family of polished ultracompact surfaces that offers an extraordinary, crystal gloss finish. On the other hand, Nayla is the latest addition to Dekton® Natural collection and it is inspired by the beauty and personality of nature.
Introducing the new Dekton® collections:
Qatar has a glossy beige tone, reminiscent of the serenity of sand and the beauty of the desert. Qatar is a sober colour, with a naturalness and warmth that combine perfectly with all types of materials.
Manhattan is deep, luminous grey colour. Under the surface there is the essence of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cement. This colour provides a modern and functional air, making it perfect for creating appealing contrast with other tones and textures.
Vienna offers a grainy, glossy white tone that brings clarity and breadth to any space. It is ideal for building spaces full of light, timelessness and weightlessness.
Nayla is defined as a granulated matt white colour that brings clarity and breadth to any decorative environment. Nayla is ideal for building subtle projects, filled with light and where aesthetic honesty is a banner.
In Cosentino’s effort to showcase the beauty, uniqueness and chromatic harmony of its latest additions, the series of installations range from inspiring designer bags assembled with Dekton® slabs by fashion designer, Irene Kusuma to beautiful mosaics of Dekton® surfaces depicting city landscapes by Interior Design Department at Raffles College of Higher Educationand TOPOS Design Studio.
With these new additions, the Dekton range now consists of over 40 different products grouped into seven collections: Solid Collection, Natural Collection, Tech Collection, Wild Collection, XGloss Solid Collection, XGloss Natural Collection and XGloss Basiq Collection.
The Dekton® by Cosentino ultra-compact surface is a new and innovative category of surfaces created with the objective of becoming a global leader in the world of architecture and design both for indoor and outdoor spaces.
Dekton® is a sophisticated mixture of the raw materials that is used to manufacture glass, porcelain materials and quartz surfaces. The Dekton® surface can recreate any type of material with a high level of quality. It is manufactured in large format (up to 320 cm x 144 cm) and thin thicknesses (0.8 cm, 1.2 cm and 2 cm). It has superior technical characteristics: resistance to UV rays, scratches, stains, thermal shock and very low waterabsorption.
All of these characteristics unique to Dekton® are present thanks to the technology used in its production, which has been developed exclusively by the Cosentino Group’s R&D department. Dekton® is manufactured with Technology of Sinterized Particles (TSP), an innovative ultra-compaction process. This contributes greatly to the fact that Dekton® is a completely revolutionary product; it is durable, very easy to maintain, and has potential for both indoor and outdoor uses including flooring, façades, wall cladding and worktops.
The prestigious architect and designer Daniel Libeskind used Dekton in the creation of “Beyond The Wall”, his only work in the Iberian Peninsula. Dekton® is sponsor of the “Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar”, where more than 40.000 m2 of the product have been used in different areas such as the façades, flooring and other coverings.
Dekton XGloss has obtained Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016
