Designed in collaboration with leading architect and designer Daniel Germani, the Industrial Collection, comprised of Trilium, Orix, Nilium and Radium, 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 ideal solution for an array of indoor and outdoor applications, including countertops, facades, cladding, flooring, stairs and more.
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.
