DeKauri, German Design Award 2019
November 23, 2018
DeKauri Bath Credenza has been distinguished with the Winner Award in the “Bath and Wellness” category at the German Design Awards 2019.
It´s the latest piece designed in collaboration with architect and designer Daniel Germani, created with Dekton by Cosentino ultra-compact surfaces and crafted by Italian furniture manufacturer Riva 1920.
The German Design Awards are the international premier prize awarded by the German Design Council. Its goal is to discover, present and honour unique trends in design. Every year, high-calibre entries in the fields of product and communication design are honoured, each of which blazes new trails in the international design landscape.
DeKauri, a freestanding enclosed bathroom vanity crafted from 50,000-year-old Kauri wood, takes inspiration from the traditional Italian credenza and brings its beauty and functionality into the bathing space.
With a washbasin crafted from Dekton® by Cosentino and Kauri wood used for the credenza, Germani’s use of materials pays homage to the resilience of Mother Nature.
The technology behind Dekton® captures the beauty of natural stone with unparalleled durability, and the Kauri wood – excavated from New Zealand where it has been buried under mud and water for thousands of years—adds a truly exotic feel to the piece.
