A company kitchen full of character

This US company’s aim was to create unique and timeless common and kitchen areas at its North Carolina headquarters. Both the client and the architecture studio in charge of the project, Gensler, were looking for a material that would be aesthetically powerful and at the same time stand the test of time, bearing in mind that these are areas of heavy traffic and daily use.

Both fell in love with Dekton Rem when they saw a sample of it. The architects knew right away that it was the perfect material, but it lacked something to add sophistication. So instead of using Rem in a matt finish, they came up with the idea of a polished finish. Thus Lincoln was born – a new and original colour designed specifically for this project. This was made possible thanks to the features of Dekton iD, a technology that allows for unlimited customisation of Dekton slabs and the creation of unique textures, colours and patterns.

Inspired by marble

This new colour, which enhances Rem’s characteristic brown and grey vein pattern with golden hints, has been used in various areas of the kitchen, as well as in rest areas. More specifically, the worktops, island and bar feature these textures inspired by the elegant white marble, reminiscent of natural Calacatta Lincoln itself. Its shiny, polished finish emphasises its sleek, modern design that blends perfectly with the dark cabinets and stainless steel appliances. As a result, the space gives a sense of calm and timelessness to the common areas of these offices.
