Dekton by Cosentino, the ultra-compact architectural surface with advanced technical properties for both interior and exterior application, adds three new colors to its acclaimed Dekton Industrial Collection offering: Laos, Soke and Lunar.
Building off the award-winning Dekton Industrial Collection designed by Phoenix-based architect and designer Daniel Germani, the colors add a calm, careful aesthetic to the existing collection, now comprised of seven colors. The hues showcase Cosentino’s continued mastery of the industrial aesthetic, putting rough, unexpected materials such as cement back at the forefront of design.
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 slabs, measuring 56” x 126”, which allows for seamless creative possibilities for architects and designers in both residential and commercial projects.
“The Industrial Collection emphasizes unexpected beauty of aging and decay,” Germani says. “These new colors continue to showcase the unique, urban look of cement surfacing but with the incomparable technology and performance of Dekton.”
The three new Dekton Industrial Collection colors are:
- Laos (left) a dark and weathered reinterpretation of the industrial look with golden tones, grey veining and a matte finish.
- Soke (center) is strongly inspired by traditional cement, with realistic cracks set over a detailed background of grays.
- Lunar (right) boasts a smooth structure and white base, offering an intriguing minimalistic yet modern approach.
“Designers and consumers alike have been wowed by the Dekton Industrial Collection since it first launched in 2016,” says Massimo Ballucchi, Director of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “We’re proud to be at the forefront of the industrial aesthetic and we are grateful for our continued collaboration with Daniel Germani, and his vision that continues to shape the Dekton Industrial Collection.”
Daniel Germani is the creative director and founder of Phoenix, Arizona-based Daniel Germani Designs. Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Daniel studied architecture and then spent eight years in Europe, working on a wide range of creative and corporate projects. His current design practice focuses on bespoke furniture design and architectural renovation. Germani’s aesthetic paradigm is influenced by creative giants like Bauhaus, Oscar Neimeyer, Le Corbusier, Mies and Frank Lloyd Wright but his design philosophy is simple; good design should always be honest and inspiring.
