What happens when art, design and innovative architectural surfaces collide?

Born from the collaboration between Cosentino and Benjamin Hubert, an award-winning British design entrepreneur and founder of creative agency LAYER, Raytrace is a large-scale Dekton immersive installation that will be presented during Milan Design Week 2019.

The installation showcases Dektonour ultra-compact, large format surface on an architectural scale – exploring its innovation and beautiful design as well as demonstrating its strength and durability.

Hubert’s design references Dekton’s highly technological qualities as an indoor/outdoor architectural product and the natural minerals used to produce the material. Raytrace contrasts a dramatic, 24 meters long triangular element with mesmerising caustic patterns emulating the refraction of light through water – a visually powerful demonstration of Dekton’s qualities as a surface, which can withstand the powerful forces of nature.

Dekton by Cosentino is a truly innovative new product – one of the thinnest compact surfaces on the market with incredible flexural strength,” says Benjamin Hubert. “Raytrace shows how architecture comes to life with light, and highlights the qualities of the newly launched material, its light appearance, versatility and how it can be used on a monumental scale.

Raytrace will be exhibited in the historical vaulted warehouses beneath Milan’s Central Train Station as part of the third edition of Ventura Centrale. The iconic backdrop of these arched spaces will house installations by internationally renowned brands and designers, making it a must-see destination during Milan Design Week 2019.
