Dekton by Cosentino Introduces Three New Colors to Acclaimed Industrial Collection
September 27, 2017
Designed in collaboration with renowned architect and designer Daniel Germani,
the expanded series draws inspiration from industry luminary Dekton Trilium
Following the celebrated launch of Dekton Trilium in 2016, Cosentino, the world leader in quartz, natural stone, and recycled surface production, will add three new colors to its Dekton Industrial Collection.
Drawing inspiration from the award-winning Dekton Trilium, leading architect and designer Daniel Germani envisioned three new designs that capture the organic texture and essenese of weather-worn stone and aged metals. The Industrial Collection is intended to be both relaxed and modern through its rough, expressive aesthetic, reestablishing concrete, metal and brick as material protagonists in modern design. To create a rich design with varied subtle effects, the Industrial collection has a never before seen matte-gloss finish.
Unlike the materials that sparked the Industrial Collection’s design, Dekton is incredibly smooth to the touch and impervious to the elements, including scratches, stains, UV rays and temperature shock. Its ultra-durable performance makes it an ideal solution for an array of indoor and outdoor applications, including countertops, facades, cladding, flooring, stairs and more. It is available in large format, which allows for seamless creative possibilities for architects and designers for both residential and commercial projects.
“The Industrial Collection celebrates the beauty of metals and cement as they transform over time,” Germani says. “Imperfections caused by oxidation and natural degradation create unique colors that capture the richness and depth of organic processes. It was only through the incomparable technology of Dekton that we were able to explore these processes and subsequently create these designs.”
The Industrial Collection embodies Cosentino’s continued commitment to sustainability, leading the industry with the most advanced and sustainable manufacturing practices. Eighty percent of the content used to make two of the collection’s four colors (Trilium and Radium) comes from excess materials from the Dekton manufacturing process. Cosentino’s investment in Research and Development has also made it possible to recycle 98 percent of water used, maintain clean air, support energy efficiency, and responsibly manage waste disposal.
The Dekton Industrial Collection includes the following four colors:
- Orix mimics the industrial appearance of eroded cement: steely, cold and broken. Its multi-tonal color palette of greys, blues and greens creates contrast between old and new.
- Nilium subtly blends hues of silver and white, offering a minimal approach. It simultaneously conveys the delicate elegance and inherent strength of metal.
- Radium resembles acid-washed steel, juxtaposing warm earth tones against cold blue and green hues. Similarly to Trilium, it is manufactured using the same sustainable production methods, using up to 80 percent recycled materials.
- Trilium, the first of the collection, captures the visual texture and color variation of aged and oxidized stainless steel with hues ranging from deep grays and blacks to rusty undertones, giving it an incredibly genuine appearance.
“The architecture and design industry’s response to Dekton Trilium has been both humbling and inspiring,” says Massimo Ballucchi, Director of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “Every accolade and award has validated our vision and the need for an expanded offering in the marketplace. We are so grateful for our continued collaboration with Daniel Germani, and his vision that brought the full Dekton Industrial Collection to life.”
