Dekton® by Cosentino in Pilsa Educa

Case Studies

Pilsa Educa is a hospitality school, located in Armilla (Granada) for professional and amateur chefs, in which excellence, innovation and leadership are the main ingredients.

As part of the interior construction of Pilsa Educa, 335 m2 of the ultra-compact Dekton® by Cosentino surface has been used.

The interior design work is inspired by an industrial unit where the original metal structures and brick walls are visible within the old building. The factory-style decor is interposed by various elements that bring us closer to the eternal beauty of nature.

Pilsa Educa cooking school needed materials which are not just beautiful, but also resistant and functional in order to guarantee its performance over time:

  • Dekton®’s resistance to heat, frost, intense use, scratches and stains make it the perfect option.
  • Dekton® enables to work and manipulate food directly on top of the work surface.

Dekton® Trilium: a perfect industrial finish

In total, 260 m2 of Dekton® Trilium has been applied to floors, vertical coverings and countertops.

The Pilsa Hostelería Técnica design team wanted, from the very beginning, to expand the industrial aspect of the walls and metal structures to the floors and other elements such as countertops or work tables in the classrooms.

The Trilium colour, which forms part of the Dekton® Industrial Collection , was the perfect colour to meet the initial aesthetic requirements thanks to its unique oxidised metal appearance. Another stand-out feature is that it’s environmentally sustainable: Trilium is manufactured from up to 80% recycled materials from the Dekton® production process itself.

Dekton® Trilium covers classroom floors and, as if it were one whole flowing piece of material, it travels up the work tables and across the countertops.

Dekton® Aura: the best natural contrast

A total of 75 m2 of Dekton® Aura has been applied to the floors, reception counter, bar and countertop.

A natural look has been chosen by the Pilsa Hostelería Técnica team for the reception area in order to differentiate it aesthetically from the classrooms and working areas.

A large wall of grass welcomes you into the world of Pilsa Educa. Its intense green colour contrasts with the natural white mantle offered by the Dekton® surface, in its Aura shade, which extends across the floor and the reception desk.

The attractive Aura shade, from the Dekton® Natural Collection, is simply incredible. The white background is enhanced by the pattern of clear and elegant grey veins that evoke natural rock formations.

In order to achieve visual continuity, Dekton® Aura can also be found in one of the cooking classrooms, used to create an auxiliary countertop and the countertop bar that wraps around the main work table which is designed in Dekton® Trilium.

Here both shades are juxtaposed to create a sublime natural-industrial combination.
