July 20, 2017
Dekton® is expanding its range of colours available in Australia with the launch of new collection XGloss Basiq which features three unique and vibrant ultra-glossy colours; Qatar, Manhattan and Vienna.
Qatar, Manhattan and Vienna are tones that can take us from the most far-flung parts of the world to business streets of New York. Within the Dekton® CGloss family, Qatar, Manhattan and Vienna are the cornerstones of a new collection called XGloss Basiq, where it is clear that simple background colours and finishes can produce beauty and functionality.
Qatar has a glossy beige tone, reminiscent of the serenity of sand and the beauty of the desert. It is a sober colour, with a naturalness and warmth that combine perfectly with all types of materials.
Manhattan is a 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, and it is 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, timeless and weightless.
