Beautiful vases in all shapes, colours and sizes fill the home of Danish Danila Yönsini. In her Instagram profile, she defines herself as a “brand manager of a real estate company by day, crazy vase lady by night”. Her obsession may be remarkable, but so is her good taste, her absolute devotion to beauty, her way of creating exquisite corners in her home.

That is why, after six fruitless months looking for a coffee table to renovate her living room, she came up with an idea: to create it herself. The main idea was to create a simple structure using a material as elegant as marble.

A refined design to suit the imagination thanks to Dekton

“I sketched a low, rectangular-shaped, simple coffee table. I wanted it to be made from a material similar to marble, but not real marble, as its porosity kind of scared me. I fell in love with Dekton Khalo, and thought that a table in that material would be really wonderful and spectacular”, says Yönsini.

Without a second thought, Danila handed over her pattern to stone manufacturer Ylämaan Graniitti, who had it ready in record time. Now, laid out on a warm, light-coloured rug and surrounded by a grey sofa and an armchair and pouffe in white wool bouclé, it decorates the living room. And, of course, a different vase adorns the table every day.

“I am interested in Scandinavian design, natural tones and materials and eco-friendly products. I have a distinctive style of decorating and I capture beautiful moments of my interior spaces in photos”, explains Yönsini, whose creativity has earned her nearly 30,000 interior design-loving followers on Instagram.

A dining table in Dekton Khalo: a dream come true

After a month enjoying the soft touch of Dekton Khalo, its noble design and benefiting from its multiple advantages – resistance to scratches, impacts, water, stains, extreme temperatures…–, Yönsini wanted to make one of her unfulfilled decorative dreams come true: to create a new dining table.

After a long design process, stone manufacturer Ylämaan Graniitti cut a large Dekton Khalo piece and created a round top out of it. Underneath the ultra-compact Dekton surface, and at its centre, a structure in the form of three separate rounded legs made of walnut veneer designed by Yönsini and manufactured by a carpenter was fitted.

This refined, sculptural base allows several diners to fit around the table and the chairs to slide in and out from under the table with ease, which were the main aims of Yönsini’s project.

“The dining table, also in Dekton Khalo, features a slightly different pattern to the coffee table, and its colour couldn’t make me happier! Dekton is also the perfect material for this new creation, as it repels stains, withstands high temperatures and does not scratch”, the decor enthusiast concludes.

Taman Permata, in Singapore, is a very unique place located a stone’s throw from the city centre and, at the same time, facing the Windsor Nature Park, more specifically, opposite the MacRitchie Reservoir, a huge lake just a few minutes’ walk away.

The Kyoob Architects team was therefore aware that the façade design project for a residential villa in Taman Permata would be exposed to difficult weather conditions.

“As the project site is on the edge of the reservoir area, we were concerned that the constant high humidity would wear down the exterior surfaces”, explains the studio. “Furthermore, the owners wanted to take care of the cleaning themselves, as they are not used to having help for this task. We therefore needed materials that were practical, durable and easy to maintain, both indoors and outdoors”, they further say.

Dekton Bromo for a dark, textured finish with hard-wearing properties

In addition to these two requirements, the material to be used had to be dark. “We were considering dark coloured materials for the façade cladding, such as stone, charred timber, textured paint, mineral paint… But then we came up with Dekton Bromo, which has the natural effect of black, slate-like stone and does not look flat”, say the architects.

Among the many features that attracted the professionals was the fact that Dekton, unlike natural stone, is a non-porous material, which makes it easier to maintain. They were also attracted by its maximum thickness of 12 mm, which is much thinner and lighter than stone and, therefore, easier to install. “It is also UV-resistant, which makes it suitable for use on the east-facing front façade”, they say.

After making sure that Dekton could meet all their requirements, they chose another Dekton surface to finish off the pitched roof. Specifically, they chose Soke, a colour inspired by classic grey cement. “We like the fact that it is stain-resistant and more durable than the original concrete finish”, the studio says.

Sensa Black Beauty, the star of the kitchen

Once the façade was decided, the project managers continued their research into Cosentino’s materials. “We are pleased that the Dekton series has so many colours, patterns and textures from which to choose. In addition to Dekton surfaces, we loved the look and feel of Sensa Black Beauty from the very beginning, and the dry kitchen was designed around an island with a 3-metre worktop in this material. It can be said that we are especially fond of dark colours”, the studio says.

“Sensa offers a wide range of stain-resistant, protected natural stone well suited for the functional kitchen island, which is also the hub for entertainment. There is no need to worry about placing hot pans directly on its surface or stains from accidental spills; it is another low-maintenance surface for which we are very grateful”, the studio explains.

Matt finish Dekton Entzo, the perfect replacement for marble in the bathroom

Another colour Kyoob Architects fell in love with was Dekton Entzo with a matt finish, which turned out to be the perfect replacement for the matt finish statuario marble and volakas marble originally intended for the bathroom cladding.

“In order to optimise the Dekton slabs, we used the same stone cutting process as with marble. As Dekton slabs are thinner and lighter, the process resulted in larger pieces that could be safely handled and fitted. We are very satisfied with the large slabs, which allow for fewer joints. As a result, it is very easy to clean”, the studio concludes.

Ti Trin Ned’s cuisine is original, sensitive, sustainable and based on humble ingredients, which always serve as a source of inspiration for its chef, Rainer Gassner. Thus, herbs from the forest, the nearby beach and the restaurant’s own fields in Himmerigskov (Denmark) are combined with ingredients from small local producers which, in the words of the restaurant’s managers, “shape a gastronomic agenda that invites you to explore and perfect the endless steps towards the ultimate culinary experience”. “To this we add our own personal and unique touch that is inspired by our history and passion”.

Thanks to this approach, the restaurant, which started its activity in 2001 in a small basement, has become an elegant, world-famous Michelin-starred restaurant. However, just like any other success story, this establishment – always at the top of Denmark’s demanding culinary scene – has also suffered setbacks.

A steel façade rusted away in just one year

For the construction of the new premises on the Fredericia waterfront, which enjoys beautiful views towards Lillebælt, the team of Billund/Hansen Arkitekter chose to let the atmosphere of the harbour next to the restaurant and the rugged nature of the surroundings determine the building’s materials: Corten steel and natural wood, together with the distinctive black windows typical of the area. It was decided to go for a steel façade which, at the entrance, served as a backdrop for the restaurant’s logo and the Michelin plaque.

However, a year later, the salty environment of the location had rusted and worn away the wall, giving the establishment a neglected appearance. But given the hardness and exceptional durability of steel, what other material could possibly be just as sturdy and, at the same time, withstand the harsh weather conditions of the environment?

Rainer Gassner, the owner and chef of Ti Trin Ned, had it clear: only the ultra-compact Dekton by Cosentino stone could successfully accomplish the task. Having tested its performance on the restaurant’s worktop and front and on the kitchen wall cladding, the establishment’s managers were well aware of the unique properties of this material, which resists abrasion, fire, scratches, impacts, stains, liquids, extreme temperatures, UV rays...

Dekton, a material that remains unaffected by weather conditions

So, as an extension of the restaurant’s design parameters, Gassner decided to use Dekton slabs for the façade. Specifically, the colour chosen was Domoos, the same elegant, sober and refined graphite black used in the kitchen.

“The small windbreak supporting the entrance is the first impression that our guests will have of our restaurant and, although we liked the idea of bringing our ‘distinctive lines’ to the façade, we did not lower our standards when the large metal slabs began to rust and wear after just one year. Instead, we replaced them with heavy-duty Dekton slabs, a surface already used inside the restaurant, the service kitchen and the production kitchen; we now know that the façade we have, will remain intact for years”, Gassner concludes.

Refurbishment of the Casas Colgadas and Casa de la Sirena restaurants

The unique environment of the city of Cuenca is linked to the culture of this mountain settlement. Its steep cobbled streets and medieval buildings are part of this city where one of its main tourist attractions are its ‘Casas Colgadas’, houses perched on the limestone rock wall overlooking the two rivers that cross the city. This unusual and exceptional architecture lends its name to the Casas Colgadas restaurant which, along with the Casa de la Sirena, has recently been refurbished by the Mariana Artesana studio.

Both restaurants, which are part of the Tranto Restauración group, uniquely share the same kitchen space. The major refurbishment of these two gastronomic premises was based on the intention of providing visual continuity and creating a dialogue between the two spaces. ‘In the context of the large-scale refurbishment of Casas Colgadas, furniture that blends in with its surroundings was required,’ explains designer Eduardo Rodríguez Parra. With a view to achieving this integration and establishing a dialogue between the two premises, he chose Dekton, as it offered numerous possibilities in terms of colours, formats and thicknesses.

Light-filled kitchen

‘The aesthetic and technical possibilities of Dekton were such that we were able to use it in all areas of the project,’ says the designer. The fact that the material is stain and scratch resistant, as well as easy to maintain, makes it the ideal surface for work areas, such as the kitchen space of these restaurants, or for high-traffic and heavy-use areas, such as the tables and chairs in the different dining rooms.

‘We needed a resistant and hygienic material for the kitchen work areas but without compromising on aesthetics, so we opted for Dekton Lunar, which with its light tone allows us to create a clean and bright ambience,’ he assures. Therefore, 12 mm thick slabs were used for the worktops, while slabs of the same colour (but 4 mm thick) were used for the veneers, which increased the sense of balance and homogeneity.

Dekton as a dining experience

‘As for the restaurants, we have managed to infuse each one with its own character, using Dekton as a clean, hard-wearing surface on which tablecloths are not necessary,’ says Rodríguez Parra. ‘In this way, the surface itself becomes part of the dining experience,’ he asserts.

In the Casas Colgadas restaurant, they decided on the Laurent colour for the tables, in 8 mm thick slabs, thus ‘creating blocks with a continuous veining’, in the designer’s words. The rich texture of Laurent, with its dark background and golden veins, brings an elegant and deep atmosphere to the whole room.

In the private area, on the other hand, a bespoke table was designed with a full 20 mm slab in Dekton Rem, a colour inspired by one of the most elegant white marbles. Its meticulous design with brown and grey veining and hints of gold provide a sophisticated look reminiscent of Calacatta marble.

Meanwhile, the Casa de la Sirena restaurant has maintained its elegant aesthetics and introduced a fresh concept in dialogue with its peer restaurant. Dekton stands out in a large bar with a front for which the designer chose the Opera colour (in 20 mm slabs), reminiscent of the elegant Carrara marble.

The tables in this establishment are made from 8 and 20 mm Dekton Khalo slabs on a metal structure. This colour, inspired by Patagonia natural stone, brings a lot of light and sophistication to the space, thanks to its texture with black, gold and tan brown tones, which fits perfectly with the interior design of the space.

‘The adaptation of the space into two restaurants with shared kitchen has been possible thanks to the possibilities of Dekton, with which we have achieved visual continuity in the furniture, tables and chairs.’

Atop a steep hill with stunning views of the entire city of Oslo, lies a hidden gem that has attracted the attention of interior designers and trade magazines alike. This is the garden house of Hanne Holsted, an instagrammer specialising in decoration, and her husband Rune. The couple recently decided to add an outdoor kitchen to their little outdoor oasis, including a cabana and a swimming pool, so fantastic that it has won the Gullfjæren award for the best outdoor space in Norway 2022.

‘I like to be careful about the materials I choose,’ explains Hanne. And she continues: ‘It is much more sustainable to go for a quality product that will keep the outdoor kitchen for years to come without damage than to choose something that will have to be replaced in a short time.’

The design lover therefore opted for Dekton, an ultra-compact and durable surface, installed in her home by Allstein AS. One of the main reasons for her choice is that it can easily withstand the high temperature changes in the area. This means that neither freezing in winter nor direct sunlight in summer can damage the surface, which remains unaffected and does not fade.

Gold tones and matt finish by Dekton Entzo

‘I wanted gold tones to match the wood that we have used in various places in the courtyard,’ recalls Hanne, who finally decided on Dekton Entzo for the worktop and the front of the outdoor kitchen.

‘My favourite was another colour in a high gloss finish, but in the end I received very good advice on choosing a matt finish for our outdoor space. We are very happy with this choice: the material does not reflect, and it looks just as nice all the time. The golden veining suits the wood perfectly, and it has just the right amount of detail to make it look good without being too overwhelming,’ ponders Hanne.

Dekton: low maintenance, high performance and carbon neutrality throughout its life cycle

A grill with lid is integrated into the worktop of this gorgeous space, so it was essential to have a surface that could withstand the high temperatures of the appliance and allow hot pots and pans to be placed directly on the bar. Dekton ensures that this can be done without altering its appearance in any way.

‘As well as being weather-resistant and aesthetically pleasing, the surfaces must also be easy to use. Dekton does not scratch with kitchen utensils and is easy to clean. I just wipe it with a damp cloth to keep it clean. The fact that the worktops remain in good condition for their entire service life without having to be replaced or polished is absolutely fantastic,’ says Hanne.

In addition to this, Hanne also welcomed the fact that Dekton is a carbon neutral product throughout its life cycle. ‘I really appreciate that Cosentino is so conscious and ambitious in terms of sustainability. It means a lot to me to know that I have also made a good choice for the environment,’ concludes the owner of this unique kitchen.

In the bustling heart of London’s Covent Garden is the Iranian restaurant Nutshell, which offers a sustainable food and drink menu with innovative vegetarian and vegan options. Using ethically-sourced British ingredients and Iranian spices, herbs and fruits, the menu is all about Iranian specialities, with a contemporary twist and the occasional hint of barbecue.

The resulting quality is exceptional, so much so that it has been awarded ‘The Michelin Plate’, a label that recognises ‘quality cuisine’. It has also been hailed by The Guardian’s food experts, among many other prestigious publications, as a place of delicious flavours that is well worth a visit.

Persian inspiration for Nutshell’s design

Nutshell is run by husband-and-wife team, Mohammad Paknejad and Marwa Alkhalaf, who named the restaurant after their family’s pistachio fields. This reference also motivated B3 Designers when designing the premises, taking inspiration from the green and pink hues visible in the fields and the nut itself, as well as from the geometry of Arabian art.

‘It was important, to both the owners and us, that the interiors complemented the modernity of the menu and architecture of the space, inducing us to use clean lines and simple detailing to create a refined space,’ explain the designers.

The couple worked closely with the experts at B3 Designers to come up with a welcoming, inspiring, colourful and comfortable interior. That is why Dekton was chosen for both the bustling bar area and the bar outside the kitchen. The reason? Cosentino’s ultra-compact surface lends a sophisticated look and, at the same time, is not scratched or marked by the use of kitchen utensils. In addition, it is easy to clean and maintain and withstands high temperatures.

Dekton Fossil: an organic, genuine colour and outstanding resistance properties

‘We were delighted to take part in this fabulous project,’ says Ryan Buck, sales director at LBS Stone, the stone fabrication company that was in charge of the bars. The family-run company uses only the best and most cutting-edge materials, suppliers, machinery and technology to ensure that any product is perfectly fitted in its final location in as little as two weeks.

‘We made bespoke worktops for the passageway and bar area from Dekton Fossil, featuring an interesting dark brown background with grey veining. It is hard, highly scratch-resistant, durable, non-porous and perfect for the kitchen!,’ concludes LBS Stone.

The colour selected in both cases was Fossil, from Dekton’s Natural Collection. It consists of a dark grey background crossed by organic-looking veins and spots, giving the material an aged and authentic look typical of fossilised stone.

However, it is its interior spaces featuring the finest and most precious finishes where the luxury of this development shines at its best. For this reason, from the very first phase of the project which included 284 high-end flats, Cosentino products have been a must-have.

“From kitchen worktops and vanities to wood-look drawer fronts and shower and bathroom claddings, Dekton stands out in every flat”, explains Cosentino South Africa. “After meeting with the architect, providing several samples and making a mockup of the show flat, it was decided to use Dekton in thicknesses of 4, 8, 12 and 20 mm”, they further say.

In the words of its developers, Stein City is a “residential city”, a high-end development spread over eight square kilometres of lush green areas in Johannesburg. Among its many luxurious amenities are its golf course (designed by the renowned Nicklaus Design firm), its heliport, its equestrian facility, its excellent school and its 300 square metre lagoon.

Dekton: one material, endless applications

Indeed, there are not many projects that showcase the limitless versatility of the ultra-compact Dekton by Cosentino surface like this one does. “Because of its resistance to scratches, stains, heat, freezing and thawing, its stability, its availability in large format slabs (which means fewer joints) and its low maintenance, Dekton was the ideal choice”, explains the team of Cosentino South Africa, who teamed up with SCAD Architects, who were in charge of the project.

Thus, the kitchen worktop features 12 mm Dekton Natura slabs, a surface that replicates the quintessential style of marble with a soft grey veining and a glass-like gloss, achieved thanks to a unique nanotechnology-based treatment. As for its cladding, the material of choice was 8 mm Dekton Kreta, a matt grey shade inspired by traditional cement floors that evokes a sense of serenity and restraint.

Cosentino creates a bespoke colour for the project

For the vanity worktop, the material used was Dekton Glacier, an ultra glossy surface with fine golden veins over a white background. As for the drawer cladding, the material of choice was Valterra, a colour that replicates the patterns of natural wood but with all the advantages of Dekton. In both cases, a 12 mm thickness was chosen, which was also used for the bathtub cladding. Conversely, a bespoke colour called Dekton Greta was created for the shower cladding.

“This project is of great importance to Cosentino South Africa for several reasons. First of all, it is the first major development in the country made entirely of Dekton, specifically, using a large quantity of Dekton Slim (4 mm). Secondly, Dekton was the ideal finish for a multitude of different interior applications thanks to its fantastic features and versatility. Had a different material been used, it would have been limited to certain applications, but not Dekton!”, Cosentino South Africa says finally.

Recapturing the spirit of the past and combining it with a fresh, functional and elegant atmosphere was the aim of Carlos Álvarez’s comprehensive refurbishment of this historic building. The original elements and materials have been preserved and merged with innovative surfaces such as Dekton and Silestone. These two Cosentino surfaces manage to establish a bridge between the past and the present in the refurbished spaces, being the main feature in the bathrooms and the kitchen, where they enhance a style halfway between classic and contemporary. In keeping with the context, both the original floor and the exposed brick walls have been retained. The result is a very personal home that strikes the perfect balance between past and present.

Two colours in dialogue

‘The ease of installation of the materials and the technical advice of the Cosentino team’ were for Carlos Álvarez one of the keys that paved the way for this refurbishment. This consisted of revamping the two main bathrooms with Dekton, a hard-wearing material that is perfect for these wet areas, thanks to its easy cleaning and simple maintenance.

Specifically, the colour chosen for one of the bathrooms was Dekton Albarium, which provides luminosity and refinement with its ecru and faded tone. This matt colour, which hides reflections and shine that simulate the marble dust, is paired with Dekton Kreta, used to cover the floor. Inspired by the ideal colour of cement, it brings a sense of serenity and balance to the space and blends in perfectly with the contemporary style of the room.

Romantic style

With a more romantic feel, another of the main bathrooms features a very interesting combination of textures and materials. In this case, Dekton Helena takes centre stage alongside wallpaper and exposed brick walls. Helena is a rich colour with a perfect balance between grey and white tones and a delicate distressed texture. This way, the depth of onyx – the natural stone that inspired this piece – can shine through. The wooden floors complete this bright bathroom full of details.

A kitchen with soul

The other room in which the dialogue between Cosentino’s innovative surfaces and the house’s historic past is clearly visible is the kitchen. Here, the hydraulic floor tiles have been preserved, creating a characterful atmosphere, as have the vaulted ceilings with exposed brick.

To highlight the aesthetic power of this traditional floor type and the original ceilings, the architect and designer selected Silestone Ethereal Glow for the worktops. A colour that shows elegant shades of gold and grey on a nuanced white background and can completely transform the kitchen into a bright and sophisticated space, while offering great resistance to stains and scratches.

A hard-wearing and sophisticated worktop that is all about beauty

She is a mother of four and also writes a lifestyle blog promoting healthy habits. That is why Finnish influencer Xenia Andersson-Sutton needed a multi-purpose kitchen where she could cook healthy recipes for the whole family without having to worry about scratches, spills or burns. But for it to light up her Instagram feed, it also had to be very photogenic!

The answer came in the form of the Dekton Rem surface, inspired by one of the most elegant white marbles on the market, the popular Calacatta marble. Its intricate design – with fine brown and grey veining and hints of gold under a subtle grain – reflects the traditional, almost linear structure of this stone, which offers the ultimate in natural sensitivity with the most advanced technological features.

‘Dekton has outstanding properties, but its stylish appearance was even more important in our choice. I was mesmerised by its pure beauty, its marble design seems to me to be very subdued and refined,’ she explains.

Dekton, the ideal surface for large and young families

After a few months of use, Andersson-Sutton admits that the kitchen meets the family’s demanding requirements exceptionally well thanks to its outstanding resistance to daily wear and tear and scratches as well as heat, fire and stains.

‘Our future home, where we will stay forever, will definitely feature a Dekton worktop for a number of reasons. First of all, it is great to use the one we have now. It is incredibly beautiful, exceptionally scratch resistant, does not absorb stains and hot pots and pans can be placed directly on its surface. I have no doubt that this worktop will serve perfectly for the lifetime of the kitchen,’ she says.

IKEA furniture and Beslag Design handles for a minimalist finish

The kitchen unit frames and doors were purchased from IKEA in order to maximise the storage capacity in the writer’s home, while the discreet handles are by Beslag Design. ‘The kitchen’s dominant standard white colour works well to compliment the attractive Dekton Rem worktop centrepiece,’ reflects Andersson-Sutton.

Another highlight of this design is the ‘waterfall’ shape in which the stone appears to fall from the worktop to the floor. The effect the blogger wanted was achieved by stone fabricator Ylämaan Graniitti, who cut the worktop in such a way that its joints are barely visible.

This minimalist style is enhanced by the cooktop extractor integrated in the island. ‘It has turned out to be a great addition, as now there is no need to use a traditional extractor hood,’ stresses Andersson-Sutton.

‘I am immensely pleased with our new kitchen. I love the large kitchen island and the beautiful Dekton Rem worktop. I still find myself admiring the stunning waterfall end of the island every day. The Dekton Rem pattern is powerful enough for my taste. I consider this worktop to be a really classic and sophisticated choice and we are fascinated by its very elegant matt finish,’ concludes the influencer.
