- Using huge panel sizes, the remarkable house delivers a powerful and versatile experience of the ultra-compact surface, Dekton
The worldwide leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, the Cosentino Group will be presenting a project ‘House of Dekton®’ designed by Steffen Kehrle at the Munich BAU 2015 and Stockholm Furniture Fair in early 2015.
Dekton® is a great surface material not only due to its huge panel format availability but also its fantastic performance and variety of applications. “The material’s many outstanding qualities offer both architects and interior designers totally new options, and it is these options we want to showcase with the ‘House of Dekton®’, says designer Steffen Kehrle. The ‘House of Dekton®’ features the many different possible uses of Dekton. The 14-sided house is made entirely of the material, showcasing floors, walls, roof, seating and a corresponding 14-sided table as the central element, all made from Dekton. In the house’s interior, the material’s qualities are exclusively communicated via the material itself; there is no need for additional information panels.
The walls are made with large-format Dekton panels (1.44 x 3.20m), arranged next to each other as in a house of cards. The entire Dekton house is the ‘Danae’ colour finish; an elegant cream shade, reminiscent of travertine limestone. The central table with its 15 different shades mirrors the entire colour palette in which Dekton is currently available. The space has an almost sculptural feel and, besides serving as a source of information, it is also a meeting place. The ‘House of Dekton®’ is a place where visitors can meet and where architects, planners and project owners can enjoy a first-hand experience of the exceptional qualities of Dekton.
