Milan Design Week 2019: Cosentino Presents ‘Raytrace’ Dekton Installation

February 8, 2019
‘Raytrace’ is a spectacular large scale installation created using Dekton and designed by Benjamin Hubert of LAYER design studuio.
Cosentino is delighted to announce its collaboration with the British designer, Benjamin Hubert of East-London design agency LAYER. The result is a large scale, immersive installation for Milan Design Week 2019. The installation, titled Raytrace, showcases Dekton, the ultra-compact, large format surface by Cosentino on an architectural scale. It explores the product’s innovative properties and beautiful design, while demonstrating its strength and durability.
Hubert’s design demonstrates 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 that can withstand the powerful forces of nature.
“Dekton by Cosentino is a truly innovative 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 (9-14 April).
Cosentino and Benjamin Hubert of LAYER are announcing the Raytrace collaboration at Cosentino City Madrid (Paseo de la Castellana 116), Cosentino’s flagship showroom in Madrid, during Madrid Design Festival on 15 February 2019 at 12:00.
