“The Moon Exception” The Italian architect Italo Rota, designs an extraordinary installation using the ultra-compact surface Dekton ® by Cosentino
April 7, 2014
Cosentino Group, a global, family-owned company that produces and distributes high value innovative surfaces for architecture and design, will be back at the University of Milan, with an amazing installation designed by the famous italian architect Italo Rota from the 7th to the 19th April 2014.
As part of the event “Interni, feeding new ideas for the city”, held in the University of Milan, the ultra-compact surface Dekton® by Cosentino is sculpted by the creative genius that is the architect Rota, in order to evoke the charm of a moonscape.
“The Moon Exception” is a visionary and inventive exploration of all that has been learned and unlearned through the exploration of space and the moon, inspiring and prevailing.
The work of Rota moves us to deep reflection, following the obsessive and constant idea that the process of invention and transmission of creative knowledge is a risk, a jump into the void, a production of knowledge made of errors and hazards, just like any respectable space voyage.
The project “The Moon Exception”, undertaken by the Cosentino Group for the 2014 edition of Fuorisalone in collaboration with the prestigious institute Domus Academy in Milan, is the special platform for three student projects – “Reverse City” by Jihye Kim, “Oasis in a loop of the day” by Ksenia Titova, “Slow Motion” by Peeranat Urairat -, developed during the workshop “The Third Place”, on the redefinition of public spaces through the use of Dekton® by Cosentino.
Dekton® by Cosentino, the most technological and ultra-compact surface, is the product chosen by Italo Rota for his pioneering installation “The Moon Exception.” The excellent technical and mechanical performance and the large format slab make it the perfect surface material for both indoors and outdoors, for easier installation and maintenance.
Furthermore, Cosentino arrives at Milan Design Week 2014 with the project “Rifra & Cosentino Group Meet The Kitchen”. In an exhibition area of 170m2, Hall 11-stand B18, the most technologically advanced surfaces Dekton® and Silestone® by Cosentino, are showcased in collaboration with the Italian manufacturer Rifra.
