The perfect material for a bold vision

Nothing makes a statement like a large wall cladded in Dekton, and that’s exactly what we see at Nippon Express’ Itasca offices. Kasey Kluxdal, Senior Design Architect for Harris Architects had a vision in mind and presented the Cosentino team with a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and together they explored the many Dekton colors, textures, and thicknesses that could bring her vision to life.

The decision was clear, Dekton Bergen was the perfect color for Nippon Express’ reception area. From the Stonika Collection, Dekton Bergen is inspired by natural Portobello marble with beautiful grayish veins creating sculptural patterns on an off-white base. With its high-gloss print, 4 mm thickness, and large panels, Dekton Bergen transformed the reception area of this global Japanese logistics company.

“The architect fell in love with Dekton Bergen and was impressed with the large format look. This was the key to making the project a success”

The magic is in the bookmatch

When cladding this two-story wall, it was imperative that the bookmatch be perfect. Cosentino and the installer, Stone Systems of Chicago, worked hand-in-hand to bookmatch the large Dekton panels to create a seamless statement wall in the reception area and behind the two-story stairwell. Dekton’s large-format panels and tight grout joints also greatly contribute to the visually continuous aesthetic of the wall and the thin 4 mm thickness allows the wall area to be as narrow as possible.

This logistic giant’s Itasca office is as unique as it is unforgettable. Dekton Bergen adorns the walls and is the first thing people see when they step inside - talk about making a good first impression.

A facade to withstand the harshest winters

Bank on Buffalo found the perfect partner in Dekton to help modernize and scale this growing bank. Bank on Buffalo focuses on commercial banking with locations in the northeast of the United States, predominantly in the city of Buffalo, NY, a region marked by hot summers and extremely cold winters. The architects needed an exterior material that was durable and stable during the freeze-thaw cycle while contributing to the monolithic appearance of the entrance and drive-thru lanes.

They found their match in Dekton Zenith, a solid and homogenous white that adds a modern and sleek touch to the exterior of the Bank’s branches and drive-thru lanes, both on an aesthetic and functional level.

Dekton masters design and functionality

Aesthetically, Dekton Zenith creates an appealing appearance that perfectly contrasts the reddish bricks of the existing structures and allows the red elements in the Bank’s logo to pop. The pure, unadulterated white of Dekton Zenith adds a modern touch to the vintage structures, bringing sleekness and consistency across all locations.

Functionally, Dekton’s properties truly shine in Bank on Buffalo. Its weather resistance makes it perfect for New York, a state with varying extreme temperatures throughout the year. Its durability is an ideal fit for the drive-thru lane which is constantly exposed to car and pedestrian traffic and will not be scratched or damaged by any contact with the vehicles. On an installation front, Dekton can be directly adhered with joints grouted to match and has very tight gaps and available in large format, which contributes to a continuous and visually harmonious look.

In the words of Stephen Parrish, Project Architect at LaBella Associates “after completion of the first branch we worked on, we knew that Dekton was the perfect solution and we have used it on each branch since. LaBella will continue to specify Dekton for future projects that require both sleek design and high functionality.”

A modern facade built to last

Few things are as awe-inspiring as an all jet-black facade. It creates an imposing aura that turns heads and makes jaws drop, and the Zen Leaf facade covered in Dekton Domoos is the perfect example.

The architect of Zen Leaf Dispensaries was looking to create a modern and sleek aesthetic for the facade of its Lombard, IL location and were introduced to Dekton by the general contractor Glendale Supply. When they saw the graphite black color of Dekton Domoos, they knew it was the perfect color and material for the project.

As fate would have it, the former Porsche retail showroom (now Peloton) is only a few miles down the road from Zen Leaf, and completely cladded with Dekton Domoos. The owner and designer visited the showroom saw first-hand the visual impact of Domoos when used as an exterior application. The rest was history.

A monolithic facade was achieved with large panels of Dekton Domoos with matching tight grout joints. This “bulletproof” material was perfect to withstand the harsh winters and hot summers of the greater Chicago area while also being unaffected by the large amounts of salt used to clean the streets during the winter.

Adaptability as the key to success

As is the case with any project, there are installation challenges, but the installer Stone Systems of Chicago was able to adapt and use their expertise to find innovative solutions. The installation took place during the cold winter months and required direct adhere. The Stone Systems team provided a tent surrounding the scaffolding to maintain the required temperature for the thin set mortar to cure correctly. Additionally, they leveled the walls and built steps to accommodate the panels that they had cut.

This imposing all-black facade is guaranteed to turn heads and make a statement.

Starting point: a façade in natural stone facing some problems

In 2021, the partial restoration of a building situated at 3 Via Paleocapa in Bergamo (Italy) was successfully completed. The job consisted of replacing the existing ventilated façade, which was only 15 years old, with a more lightweight and equally beautiful one.

When the Duesse Hi Tech team took over the management of the project, they were faced with a building at serious risk of collapse due to the weight of the 250 m2 of natural stone - probably Calacatta of national origin - used on its façade. Furthermore, on the ground floor, designed as a portico supported on pillars, they found a 5 cm depression caused by the static load. The risk posed to the building and pedestrians -as it is a busy street in Bergamo- demanded quick action.

In addition to the excess weight of the natural stone, there was a technical problem with the anchoring system of the ventilated façade, which had been incorrectly designed in terms of static load bearing capacity. In the restoration, 12 mm Dekton Entzo slabs were used to replace the natural stone, thus significantly reducing the weight to about 50 kg per unit on each of the building’s walls.

Considering the urgency of replacing the façade, Dekton was the best option. The new design, the installation of the substructure and insulation layer, and the entire cladding were completed in just two weeks with a team of three people.

Numéro d'image 104 de la section actuelle de Via Paleocapa Facade de Cosentino France

Solution: Dekton technology without compromising on beauty

Having solved the technical challenges, it was necessary to find a material as beautiful as natural stone and with a finish similar to Calacatta. The wide range of Dekton colours made it possible to find the closest finish to the original cladding: Entzo. The result is the same chromatic and “natural” stone effect required by municipal and provincial authorities for areas of historic interest.

In short, Dekton ventilated façades are perfect both for the refurbishment of existing cladding and for new projects. There are five properties that make Dekton the perfect solution for ventilated façades: 1. Lightweight; 2. Large format slabs (Jumbo format 325 x 159 cm); 3. Quick installation; 4. Natural appearance; 5. High static and architectural performance.

Cosentino team, coordination at all stages of the project

Lakeside is a well-known commercial bank in the Chicago area, Illinois. As part of the refurbishment process of some of their offices, specifically the Oakbrook Terrace office, they hired the services of the architectural studio Pappageorge Haymes Ltd. From the very beginning, the studio planned a modern, interesting façade that would catch the eye of passers-by, inviting them to look at it.

The execution of a stunning façade required a high quality material. Pappageorge had worked with natural stone in the past, but problems always arose because of its poor UV resistance and technical limitations. The studio had heard about the technical properties of Dekton on exterior façades and was keen to learn more.

The Cosentino team met with Pappageorge architects, provided material samples and designed a mock-up featuring the XL 45 system. In this rainscreen system, aluminum rails are anchored to the back of the Dekton slab by horizontal grooves. In the end, Dekton was the material of choice for the versatility it offered in such a complex project. Stone Systems of Chicago, a certified fitter knowledgeable of the material, was in charge of the execution of the project.

The monolithic white of Dekton Zenith

After a difficult but very beautiful job under the direction of architect Donald Mouch, the Lakeside Bank façade is now one of the most impressive façades in Oakbrook Terrace, and the most beautiful ever executed by Stone Systems.

Without detracting from the flawless technical execution, a large part of the success is due to the beauty of the material. Dekton Zenith is part of the Solid Collection. Its near-perfect Nordic white blends excellently with the red brick used on the rest of the Lakeside Bank building, in a balanced mix of modernity and classicism.

A premium material for a first class institution: the Lakeside Bank has undoubtedly found its perfect match in Dekton. Dekton’s superior technical properties coupled with design aspects such as elegance, sobriety and perfection, make the Oakbrook Terrace building the most prominent of all Lakeside Bank buildings.

Quand José Luis Moral décolle, le monde est à ses pieds. Le fervent pilote sportif survole les prairies et les collines boisées au nord du lac de Zurich et contemple un panorama alpin à couper le souffle. Les montagnes enneigées scintillent au-dessus, tout comme le lac en contrebas. Moral pose des surfaces pour les projets de construction individuels de ses clients depuis environ 30 ans, sur ses rives et bien au-delà. Avec Roandi Immobilien AG, il est devenu lui-même l’un des promoteurs.

Son attitude terre-à-terre lui profite également ici. De cette façon, Moral a pu trouver des emplacements logistiques idéalement situés dans une région très attrayante, à la fois pittoresque et commerciale, non seulement pour Pizrog Natursteine AG, dont il est le directeur, mais aussi pour un partenaire commercial important. L’utilisateur principal à Neuhaus est devenu le « Cosentino Center Zurich » avec 375 m² d’espace d’exposition et de bureau et 2325 m² d’espace de stockage. Le spécialiste du traitement individuel et de la pose de surfaces en pierre a déménagé avec son entreprise à Bubikon, à 15 km.

Esthétique et fonctionnel

« Nous avons planifié et réalisé les deux bâtiments en parallèle avec un bureau d’architecture local. C’est ainsi que cela fonctionne toujours le mieux sur place », explique José Luis Moral. En même temps, il a établi des lignes directrices uniformes. « Le design riche en caractère est très important pour moi, ainsi que des fonctionnalités exceptionnelles et une qualité durable pour tous les articles Roandi. » Cela s’applique en particulier à l’enveloppe du bâtiment. La façade en rideau ventilé à l’arrière s’est avérée particulièrement efficace ici. Elle combine en permanence une efficacité énergétique élevée avec une grande liberté de conception.

« La façade avant doit être d’une luminosité invitante et rayonner d’une chaleur méditerranéenne claire, impression qui est renforcée par l’entrepôt sombre contrasté en arrière-plan », explique José Luis Moral. « Les matériaux sélectionnés doivent naturellement incarner les standards de qualité les plus élevés et la précision suisse proverbiale. Je pense que nous y sommes parvenus grâce à la combinaison de Dekton Danae et de schiste naturel. D’ailleurs, les deux matériaux viennent d’Espagne, tout comme moi », ajoute Moral avec un clin d’œil.

Surface ultracompacte

Les minéraux naturels, la pression et la chaleur ont créé les deux surfaces utilisées. Cependant, cela peut prendre des millions d’années pour que les sédiments argileux deviennent du schiste. Avec Dekton by Cosentino, la métamorphose se produit de manière contrôlée et accélérée en quelques heures. À 25 000 tonnes de pression et 1200 °C, les minéraux sont formés en une surface ultracompacte à l’aide de la technologie d’aggloméré de particules (PST). Dekton est résistant au froid, à la chaleur, aux chocs thermiques et aux UV et offre des couleurs stables. Le matériau peut donc être utilisé à la fois à l’intérieur et à l’extérieur.

Dekton est produit en panneaux grand format allant jusqu’à 320 cm x 144 cm et en plus de 50 dessins et textures. Dans les projets Roandi, la nuance sablonneuse Dekton Danae de la Natural Collection de 1,2 cm d’épaisseur a été utilisée. Un treillis de fibre de verre intégré garantit qu’aucun fragment ne peut se détacher si la façade est endommagée. Cosentino a livré les plaques qui mesurent jusqu’à 160 x 110 cm découpées sur mesure, fendues en haut et en bas et avec des bords traités, directement sur le chantier de construction, numérotées consécutivement et « juste à temps ».

Numéro d'image 145 de la section actuelle de Cosentino Center Zurich de Cosentino France

Monolithe flamboyant

La sous-structure du revêtement extérieur se compose de supports en aluminium séparés thermiquement, qui sont fixés avec des ancrages à boulon au mur de béton, par ailleurs isolé avec de la laine de pierre de 19 cm. Les profilés en L verticaux sont fixés aux supports à l’aide de doubles rails en T horizontaux. Les plaques de Dekton fendues supérieures et inférieures ont été insérées dans ceux-ci et fixées en toute sécurité sur place par les installateurs de Pizrog Natursteine AG. « Avec ce système, vous travaillez très rapidement et en même temps avec une grande précision », explique Moral.

Étant donné que Dekton a un coefficient de dilatation thermique négligeable, les espaces entre les plaques individuelles peuvent être très petits. « Alors que de grandes fenêtres permettent de faire entrer beaucoup de lumière du jour à l’intérieur, la partie opaque de l’enveloppe du bâtiment a un caractère monolithique doucement chatoyant », dit, satisfait, José Luis Moral. Il va bientôt construire à nouveau avec Roandi. Un autre grand bâtiment commercial est en cours de construction juste à côté du « Cosentino Center Zürich », naturellement à nouveau dans la combinaison éprouvée avec Dekton Danae.

The visual impact of large format Dekton

The new Liderim offices in Tel Aviv (Israel) exude elegance. Once in the reception area, there is an impressive desk made from a huge, seamless, large-format Dekton Aura slab. The effect is overwhelming, thanks to the use of the same material for the wall and ceiling cladding. The overall feeling is one of understated luxury, combining a material such as Dekton Aura, inspired by classic marble, with cement flooring and wood.

The desk has been created from several planes with a sought-after asymmetry, giving it movement and modernity, in contrast to the classic look of the finish itself. Dekton Aura, a colour from the Natural Collection, with grey to beige veining reminiscent of Calacatta and Carrara marble, contributes to this.

When the architect responsible for the project, Eli Hacohen, was asked why he chose Dekton Aura, the answer was clear: ‘I chose Dekton Aura for the Liderim offices because I wanted to convey understated luxury, and because of the versatility of the material for application as wall, ceiling and furniture cladding.’

Dekton, interior design down to the last millimetre

In the Liderim offices, everything is designed to create a welcoming atmosphere that invites employees and visitors to stay. To this end, the exterior features are integrated into the interior of the building, providing continuous visual communication, especially in the entrance, reception area and meeting rooms.

Everything has been controlled and meticulously executed. Nothing has been left to chance. Not surprisingly, the roof cutting and the wall cladding also required a great deal of precision and detailed planning. This was perhaps the main challenge of the project, which Hacohen successfully overcame thanks to the Cosentino team, which is always ready to provide technical solutions.

The choice of the same material, Dekton Aura, for the tables in the meeting rooms has been another success of the project. In addition to creating a cosy space, in combination with the beige leather chairs, the material connects with the reception area of the offices, strengthening the original creative concept. Dekton is also available in a thickness of only 4mm in its Slim version, which offers multiple possibilities as furniture cladding – table tops, cabinet fronts, and one-piece items such as side tables – without the disadvantages of natural stone, which is highly susceptible to scratches, liquids or sunlight exposure.

A well-designed LED lighting system, plant materials in the right places and plenty of natural light complete the final look.

The lightness of Dekton, the aesthetics of concrete

In the Vitania skyscraper in Tel Aviv, which houses a showroom for Mazda and Ford cars, a new part has been added to the office area. The building boasts a multi-storey atrium with a huge multimedia screen, which overlooks the street and occupies the full height of the space.

For the cladding of this new part, the idea was to use a material suitable for working with large, thin slabs. It also had to be aesthetically pleasing and blend in well with the concrete finish of the rest of the tower.

Therefore, the material chosen was Dekton Slim in Soke colour, with an ultra-thin thickness of 4mm. This colour is part of the Industrial Collection and is inspired by classic cement, perfect for the modern finish that the architect wanted to achieve.

A skyscraper with a focus on sustainability

Vitania is an office tower situated in Tel Aviv, Israel. With its 17 storeys and 19,500m2 built above ground – plus 3 storeys of parking below ground level – it rises majestically above a beautiful green area. Not surprisingly, the tower meets the strictest technical specifications and sustainability criteria to save energy and money, challenges that the BREEM-certified Dekton has helped to overcome.

Visually, the building has a luxurious lobby and offers its users the possibility to configure the office according to their needs. The building is attractive for its simplicity, achieved in part by the use of concrete and clean, straight lines. In the new part, the walls, floors and doors of the lobby were clad with Dekton, achieving greater uniformity. ‘The building itself is a contemporary building and the desire was to convey modernity and cleanliness, both in the main lobby and throughout the floor. The colour we chose (Soke) perfectly matches the experience we were looking for,’ explains Elad Cohen, architect at Alex Meitlis Architecture and Design.

In addition, as a certified fire-resistant material, Dekton helped to provide the extra safety required for a colossal building such as the Vitania Tower.

Large-scale passive building

The Innovation Technological Center (ITC) is a newly built building located within the AEC Illuminazione headquarters, where research and development work is carried out. The building has a surface area of 26,500 m2 and was designed by the Milanese architectural studio SBGA Blengini Ghirardelli, who based their design on pure, simple geometric lines. The heart of the project, known as “The Lab”, is formed by the intersection of two parallelepipeds in which, over an area of 3,000 m2, technicians and researchers work together in a space designed to encourage collaboration.

One of the most eye-catching features of this project is its northern façade. This façade, made of large-format Dekton Domoos slabs and with a surface area of 1,100 m2, is one of the largest Dekton façades in Europe. The cladding was installed on the ventilated façade using a Keil fixed anchoring system. The choice of material was based on the company’s sustainability criteria and the purpose of insulating the building from high temperatures.

Dekton Domoos is a finish from the Solid Collection. It is a dark, almost black shade, available in large format slabs (320cm x 144cm), which is ideal for outdoors and large surfaces and perfect for a ventilated façade.

In line with the company’s philosophy

The ITC building is the best example of AEC’s philosophy of innovation and automation. AEC’s business vision and investment decisions continually seek innovative solutions in the lighting of public spaces. The building creates an interesting relationship between the exterior and interior. The landscape outside serves as inspiration to create a relaxing atmosphere. The double-height entrance and the glazed façade provide a light-filled space where natural light prevails. Everything was designed with the wellbeing of employees in mind and nothing here is reminiscent of a traditional factory concept.

The building was built on three levels. On the ground and first floors, where tests and experiments are carried out under extreme environmental conditions, a series of double and triple height laboratories were set up from the mezzanine floor, from which it is possible to safely monitor the tests. The research offices are on the third floor. The clean, geometric lines continue on this floor. The building is completed by a skylight roof that brings light into the centre of the workspace. The technical systems and photovoltaic panels are located above the roof, concealed by a cornice, rounding off the project.

The most innovative and sustainable materials combined with avant-garde architecture have come together to create the ITC, which has become AEC’s best calling card.
