Restaurant André showcases Dekton® ultracompact surface
Walking into the newly renovated restaurant in the corner of trendy Bukit Pasoh Road in Singapore, one will be greeted with sleek designs, clean lines, muted tones and perfectly aligned table settings. The use of Dekton® Kelya, Keon and Galema colours can be seen from the entrance to the heart of the restaurant, built elegantly into Restaurant André’s creatively fuelled kitchen.
“The opportunity to work with Cosentino came pretty naturally to me. At Restaurant André, we pride ourselves in the food we serve so it’s important that our facilities and environment makes for an effective and efficient space. I especially love Dekton’s multi-facted properties like its resistance to stains, heat and scratches which are important aspects to look for in a commercial kitchen. Another plus is Cosentino’s wide variety of designs and colours that ensures the products are in sync with my design philosophy,” said Chef André Chiang.
To dine at the exquisite Restaurant André is to embark on an exploratory journey around the mind and memory of chef and co-owner André Chiang. Trained in France, the Taiwanese-born Chef treats his diners to enchanting courses with his signature flair and sophistication, each paired primarily with biodynamic French artisanal wines, reflecting aspects of the chef’s personal and multi-faceted culinary experience in a plate.
Chef André Chiang, chef of Singapore’s Restaurant André, has chosen to apply Dekton® ultracompact surface in diverse areas of his recently renewed restaurant.
Cosentino’s long standing support as a partner and sponsor of The World’s 50 Best Restaurant makes this collaboration with Restaurant André a cause for celebration.
Restaurant André, a name synonymous with culinary excellence in Singapore and around the world currently ranks first in Singapore by holding the no. 5 place in the coveted 2015 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant list and holds the No. 46 place in the list for The 2015 World’s 50 Best Restaurant.

The most interesting architectural and decorative feature of the project:
The key highlight in this collaboration is the incorporation of Dekton® Galema colour in André’s kitchen. Installed in the kitchen, the properties of Dekton® such as its resistance to heat, stains and fire makes it an ideal kitchen worktop for Restaurant André.
Cosentino material application:
Dekton® ultracompact surface has been chosen for its heat, stain and scratch resistance properties that are both suitable and important to incorporate into a commercial kitchen. The colour and options available with Dekton® also ensure that there’s no compromise on the aesthetics of the restaurant.
The chosen colour, Galema matches perfectly the aesthetic concept of the restaurant that portrays sleek designs in muted, earthy tones.
The advantages and benefits of the applied Cosentino material in this specific application:
The application of Dekton makes it a more efficient work space for the restaurant and allows the team to cut down on time taken for maintenance and cleaning.
Dekton® in the Kitchen:
The technical characteristics of Dekton® make it a material ideal for kitchen worktops, coverings and flooring both in private homes and for professional use. Dekton® is a material which resists fire and heat, allowing direct contact with hot objects.
Dekton® in Bathrooms
