A multi-sensory experience

“Beyond the concepts, philosophies or types of kitchen, Appetite is a place to celebrate people, with their own differences and similarities.” Thus, the renowned chef Ivan Brehm presents his most personal project, the multi-concept space Appetite, which aims to go beyond the concept of a restaurant to bring together musicians, artists, designers and even scientists. It is a unique place where gastronomy is only the starting point.

Designed by the Japanese interior designer Akira Kita, from AKA Architecture and Interior Design, Appetite offers a bright and peaceful atmosphere, with a calm simplicity that reminds us of the monasteries characteristic of Southeast Asia. Every material, texture and colour makes the difference to achieve harmony. Due to its textures and technical features, the ultra-compact Dekton surface is a centrepiece of the design created by Kita and manages to enhance a multi-sensory experience.

The beauty of Dekton Bergen to withstand a large number of diners

The Appetite design is based on a 13m2 U-shaped bar made with Dekton Bergen, from the Stonika collection. Inspired by Portobello marble, Dekton Bergen features a warm white foundation, delicately interwoven with an extremely elegant grey veining.

It is in this unusual open kitchen where chefs and diners share space; a place of frenzied activity, thermal contrasts and handling of many plates and glasses that would test the resistance of any material. This is one of the reasons why Dekton was chosen, a material that offers high resistance for surfaces prepared to ‘withstand’ the traffic of a popular gastronomic space.

Dekton Slim, the ideal thickness for cladding

Simple in appearance, Appetite avoids decorative features to make furniture, works of art and dishes stand out. This way, the idea of the interior designer Akira Kita is completed with doors and cooker hood cladding made with Dekton Slim, the ultra-light version of Dekton that is only 4mm thick.

Light, functional and full of possibilities, Dekton Slim is Cosentino’s offer to bring Dekton’s unique design and properties to walls and furniture.

The perfect symbiosis between kitchens

The Ti Trin Ned restaurant has become a reference in Danish gastronomy since 2001. Located in the old quarter of Fredericia, on the shores of the Baltic Sea, this restaurant takes its culinary offerings to an almost intimate level where diners and chefs share spaces. The experience had to flow, according to the concept of manager Mette Hvarre Gassner and chef Rainer Gassner, who have created a perfect symbiosis between a restaurant turned into an open kitchen and a ‘production’ kitchen. The result – one Michelin star.

To do this, it was necessary to merge two spaces with different characteristics and needs: on the one hand, priority was given to the aesthetic beauty of the surfaces, which had to complement the flavours of the menu; and on the other hand, it was essential to have a material that could be resistant to the thermal shocks, scratches and stains inherent in a busy kitchen. Dekton uniquely combines functionality and design, two features that make it truly attractive for professional kitchens all over the world.

“The resistance of Dekton represents exactly the attributes we are looking for, without compromising on aesthetics and design”
Rainer Gassner

Rainer Gassner

Owner & Chef

Domoos and Kreta for two working environments

During the development of the project it was important that the two spaces, i.e. the open kitchen and the ‘production’ kitchen, were interconnected yet physically separate. The solution was to use a combination of two textures: the dark, almost black texture of Dekton Domoos for the worktops and the wall cladding in the open kitchen, and the soft grey of Dekton Kreta, from the award-winning Industrial Collection by Cosentino, used in the ‘production’ kitchen.

It is in the latter where Dekton’s unique properties stand out. Its large format of 2700X1400 mm, which runs from floor to ceiling, provides a sense of continuity that also makes cleaning easier by reducing joints. Ti Trin Ned’s kitchen is one of the easiest to maintain in Denmark.

“We invested a great deal of energy in creating the perfect kitchen and Dekton has helped us enormously”

Eco-friendly aesthetics

Ti Trin Ned offers a type of cuisine that is deeply rooted in its natural environment, with ingredients firmly established in tradition and respect for nature. For Mette and Rainer Gassner to find a material that is as beautiful as it is sustainable was a matter of pure coherence. Dekton, as a carbon neutral product, meets this requirement perfectly.

“We are impressed by the features of Dekton and, at the same time, the concern for the environment and recycling that motivates Cosentino’s R&D. This is in line with our philosophy of respecting natural resources”.

An aesthetic and functional solution

FINEHARD is a leading processor of innovative surface materials made of quartz, ceramic, and high-tech materials for room architecture in the kitchen, bathroom, and living area. The company is part of Fraefel AG, one of the largest manufacturers of bathroom furniture in Switzerland. With innovative production methods, the company also works on kitchen construction with architects, interior designers, and carpentry workshops like BISAG which focus on creating individual solutions.

For the new kitchen for a customer in Wängi in the canton of Thurgau, centrally located between Zurich, St. Gallen, and Lake Constance, BISAG SCHREINEREI was looking for something very special. A combination of European walnut wood with a pronounced grain and uniformly dark surfaces was planned. FINEHARD recommended Dekton by Cosentino for the homogeneity and design options. In order to draw on the colour of the existing natural stone floor, the graphite black Dekton Domooos was selected for the 12 mm thin horizontal shelves.

“The central cooking island should stand out visually. For this purpose, we used Dekton Keranium, which creates an abstract connection to the colour of the wood with its strong technical dark brown,” explains Durak Fazliji, Production Manager at FINEHARD. “The door elements should be designed with the same surface, but without being bulky or complicated. We had to test how thin we can produce the fronts without jeopardizing stability – and how we can secure the fittings in the long term.”

Dekton Keranium from the Cosentino Tech collection is available in 20, 12 and 8 mm thickness – too much to apply the ultra-compact surface to a carrier plate if you want to create the slimmest possible profile. “We were therefore looking for a solution to connect the hinges directly with Dekton,” says Fazliji. “We did not want to just use adhesive. However, in order to set screws, we needed a fastening system that had the shortest possible anchors, and we had to find a way to set precise and resilient bores without the material experiencing too much stress and tearing.”

Fraefel Kitchen  - Frafel 4 139

Freedom to create any kitchen solution

Dekton is extremely stable, resistant to bending, and sturdy. The ultra-compact surface is manufactured in a particle sintering process developed by Cosentino. Up to 20 exclusively natural minerals are compressed under high pressure of approx. 25,000 tonnes and heated up to 1,200°C so that the particles combine to form an extremely durable surface with the highest homogeneity. The material is water-resistant and stain-resistant, fire and heat-resistant, and available in more than 50 designs, also in large formats.

However, the hardness of the material is a challenge during processing. “We tested various drilling tools and their parameters on our machines for weeks,” Fazliji remembers. Finally they got the hang of it. “By including our fitting supplier, we found the right product which we were able to anchor perfectly through high-precision boreholes. We were then able to attach the door hinges, door fittings, and telescoping runners securely and without tension by using pull anchors and screws.”

A 22 metre engineering and design challenge

Unique, breathtaking projects, such as this stunning 22 metre urban waterfall made entirely of Dekton, arise when design and technique are embraced. The project is the result of the collaboration between Cosentino and the Australian design team Waterforms International, a company specialising in architecture and engineering of all types of water related facilities.

Inspired by the lush tropical landscapes of Indonesia, the waterfall is located on the main façade of a luxury residential building and serves as a starting point for exploring an urban garden with over 5,000 tropical plants. “Just because it hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean it can’t be. That is our philosophy”, says Kate Deakin-Bell, Marketing Coordinator for Cosentino Oceania.

“There is a growing interest in how design and urban planning can bring us closer to nature. We love that Dekton plays such an important role in this type of project”.
Kate Deakin-Bell

From granite to Dekton

The project was initially going to be made from granite. However, when the designers brought the sketch to reality, technical difficulties surfaced, such as the weight of the material and its high maintenance cost. In addition to these difficulties, the poor aesthetic result of the joints created between the granite pieces led the Waterforms International team to realise that a different material was needed.

“One of the most attractive aspects of Dekton is the size of the slabs. The large format means fewer joints and a more refined aesthetic result”, explains Dirk Slotboom, Managing Director of Waterforms International. “Dekton is lightweight, maintenance-free and water-proof, making it ideal for this project. Furthermore, it has the exact texture we wanted here”.

“Dekton is a superior product. We will use it again in future projects”.
Dirk Slotboom

Limitless designs

Dekton is the chosen material for designers and architects working on projects with different technical difficulties: from urban environments where maintenance is key, to high-traffic buildings where the material must be both resistant and versatile.

“This is not only a beautiful waterfall, it also plays an important role in the sustainable revolution taking place in urban planning in Australia”, explains Kate Deakin-Bell. Classified as a Carbon Neutral product, Dekton is not only manufactured in a sustainable way: its technical features make it perfect for projects that seek energy efficiency but not at the expense of beauty.

A colour palette to recreate any environment

“The important thing is not what you eat, but how you eat it”. The quote from the Greek philosopher Epictetus presides over the main dining room of the Joseba Añorga tavern-restaurant, a dining space that offers its customers an experience that goes beyond the culinary. The decoration of the establishment, featuring Dekton’s colours Liquid Sky and Khalo, recreates different natural environments of the province of Almeria, in southern Spain.

“I wanted to recreate atmospheres and landscapes of the surroundings with very bright colours that would bring light to the restaurant”, explains Lucas Paris, the interior designer responsible for this interior design project. Paris used Dekton Khalo with Xgloss finish for the bartop, and Dekton Liquid Sky for the cladding of the main wall of the dining room.

 

Taberna Joseba Añorga  - Taberna Anorga Dekton 4 217

A material designed to ‘endure’

This is not the first time that Lucas Paris has worked with Cosentino’s materials. In fact, the designer has already carried out other projects using Dekton as his benchmark material. “I always recommend Dekton for its durability and resistance. I have it well tested. I am also very interested in the fact that it is a very clean and easy to maintain material, which is very much appreciated in the hospitality industry”.

Dekton’s versatility has led the restaurant owner to use small pieces of the material as plates or placemats. “We found it very interesting that the diner could eat directly on the material itself. It is part of the experience”.

“Khalo reminded me of the natural stones of the region, while Liquid Sky has a very vivid veining and a shade that takes me to the beaches of Almeria. Furthermore, it has a very attractive texture, perfect to achieve that vivid effect.”

A complete renovation

The Joseba Añorga tavern-restaurant is located in an early 20th century building that has undergone a careful process of restoration and renovation. Both the exterior façade and the interior spaces have been preserved while providing modern elements and designs.

Dekton’s ease of installation and handling in architectural solutions, such as the main wall cladding, has been one of the key elements that has facilitated the rehabilitation work.

Finally, the fabricator company responsible for the project, Encideluxe, highlights the challenge to achieve an outstanding result: “in this project we took care of every detail, we managed to join the veins following the specifications of the interior design. We are proud to see in our projects collaboration, functionality and elegance.”

Architects who lead by example

The C&G Técnicos Asociados firm is located in the historic city of Santiago de Compostela, in northern Spain. It is a technical architecture and engineering office that works both in the construction of wind farms, family homes and in the refurbishment of business premises.

The studio, well known in the industry, has expanded rapidly in recent years and a new space was required to house all the staff and convey the brand’s values. From the initial idea of these new offices, the architect in charge of this project, Santiago Rodríguez Alcalá, was very clear that they had to show the solutions they offered to the clients in terms of materials and finishes. In this way, the studio would become the best showroom to display their work.

 

For this purpose, Rodríguez Alcalá chose Dekton for the cladding and flooring of the new offices and Silestone for the worktops of the small kitchen-office and bathroom. To do so, he used a wide range of finishes and colours in various formats, from Dekton Feroe, Laos and Liquid to the classic Silestone Eternal Noir and Calacatta Gold.

The versatility of Cosentino materials

The new offices were designed with an outside reception area, a meeting room for clients and management, and another inside area for work and collaboration. Both areas are connected to a central section consisting of the toilets, the office and a small rest area.

In the outdoor area, the aim was to make the most of natural light and achieve a ‘unique’ look when seen from the street. The reception and customer service areas can be seen from outside both day and night, playing with carefully placed points of light. Thus, the new offices become the best way to attract future clients.

In the interior area, a place for technical work, the purpose was to create a more private and relaxed place, focusing on sound insulation and controlled lighting. The open views to the outside, the high ceiling and the combination of materials –a dark ceiling with an adjoining concrete floor– all contribute to this feeling of warmth and calm.

The initial challenges

Like any other refurbishment project, it was not free of obstacles. In the case of the C&G offices, they found an empty and unused space, with the building installations resulting on different levels, including the roof, because of the changes in elevation. An intelligent concept of space and the use of materials with strong expressive power were critical to achieving the studio that is today.

The unique soul of historical buildings

Sophistication on all levels, that’s what defines chef Wouter van Laarhoven and his partner Malou Hagenaars. In 2019 they realized their dream and opened restaurant/bodega ‘Alma’ in Oisterwijk (The Netherlands). In this they found the perfect location with an unmistakable charm and history. The building called ‘De Lind’ is known in Oisterwijk as ‘De Swaen’ (the Swan) since 1631. Top chef Cas Spijkers used to cook the most beautiful dishes here.

On the top floor of the building a fine dining restaurant was created which can seat 48 people. It includes a balcony with a beautiful view over De Lind, perfect for outdoor dinners in the Summer. In restaurant ‘Alma’ everything comes together and the cuisine brings true meaning to the frase ‘soulfood’. Alma means soul in Spanish, a refferal to the high level experience the couple offers their guests.

Alma restaurant  - Restaurant alma Dekton 122 299

Advising from start to finish

The interior design of Alma has a strong Spanish influence. Chef Van Laarhoven fell in love with Dekton by Cosentino, strong slabs in a natural stone look and feel. Architect Jeff van Riel of Zout Ontwerphuis made a design for the restaurant.

Van Laarhoven visited the Cosentino facilities in Spain during the design process. “What struck me most in Spain is the size of the slabs. I got a good picture of the veining in the matieral. It was wonderful to be able to visit the factory and see all the colors in large size. That eventually led to the choice of a different colour than we initially planned.”

Design that stands up to professional demands

The choice for Dekton was made thanks to the elegant yet robuste look and durability of the material – Dekton is resistant to stains, scratches and extreme temperatures. The material has been incorporated in the bar, the tabletops, in cupboards and in the kitchen where the material even is being used as induction hob to cook on. This is a unique application for a professional kitchen. Because Dekton is heat resistant, induction coils can be placed underneath the worktop.

The induction process does not transmit heat to Dekton, only the used pan transmits heat temporally to the surface. Through a special operating system the temperature can be raised. This makes this application not only beautiful, but it also brings practical advantages like a large kitchen countertop without interruptions. The surface is very easy to clean, simply use a damp cloth and the stain and heat are gone.

Now nothing stands in van Laarhoven’s way of cooking the most beautiful dishes, assisted by his wife who is also a cheese master.

Dekton, an aesthetic and functional solution

A strong local identity is important to Clientis Bank in Oberuzwil. The distinctive reception counter demonstrates this claim. With its precisely formed facets, it connects the aesthetics of the surrounding Appenzeller Alps with the trust customers place in the business. The high-quality surface consists of ultra-compact Dekton from Cosentino.

Switzerland is famous for its financial industry. Around 260 financial institutions are based in the alpine republic, from global players to local financial providers who, like Clientis Bank, take care of small and mid-sized companies, institutions and private clients with their particularly customer-focused service. When the regional bank in Oberuzwil moved into a new building, 85d Innenarchitektur was commissioned to design the interior.

“The walls and floors in the open reception area are very bright, with a warm, soft lighting effect”, says Silvan Derungs, an interior designer at 85d. “Although the overall architectural concept is understated in terms of style and colour, the reception area is a striking focal point. The crystalline form reflects the values and strong foundation of the bank, which is situated at the foot of the nearby Säntis and Churfirsten mountains”.

Reflecting values and security

“Customers can be welcomed quickly and easily at two tiered counter levels”, explains carpenter Luzio Egli. “We co-ordinated the features and measurements with 85d using a 1:1 sample, on-site, exactly to the requirements of customers and bank staff. Fixtures mounted on the cabinet provide places for customers’ personal items and handbags. In addition, it was also important to integrate electric lift tables and safes on the advisors’ side.”

For durable, high-quality and easy-care furniture, Clientis agreed to the recommendation to use Dekton by Cosentino in the colour “Galema” for the surface. Dekton consists entirely of natural minerals, which are combined in a sintering process under high pressure and heat. The UV-resistant, solid-coloured and ultra-compact material is available in sizes up to 324 x 147 cm and thicknesses from 0.4 to 2 cm.

Distinctive hallmark

“The main obstacle was constructing the complex furniture in such a way so that the surface and cabinet have a monolithic texture and colour, and all components sit exactly flush,” explains Egli. During the renovation work, the Dekton panels for the FEINHARD surfaces were cut to a custom design and profile for the 3.46 m², 1.2 cm thick counter surface. In just a few days, this was placed and fitted to the cabinet, which was as yet untreated.

Next, the furniture was disassembled once again in order to complete the beautifully textured painting on the front panels. Finally, the “marriage” between the cabinet and the surface took place on-site, at the bank. The extensive and detailed preparations paid off: The front panel and DEKTON surfaces are perfectly matched. The homogeneous surfaces and high-precision edge details make the reception counter a distinctive trademark.

Continuous surfaces and high-precision edges, chamfers ranging from 1.2 cm to 0.5 cm, which were cut on-site to create a more intricate effect, give a distinctive aspect to the reception counter and its Dekton surface.

When the architect falls in love with a material

In 2017 the Milanese architect, Maurizio Barbotti, was looking for a material that was more than plain ceramic and with high resistance both indoors and outdoors. Barbotti had just started his most personal project: the building from scratch of a private villa in the small town of Legnano, located a few kilometres from Milan.

It was during this research process, while walking around the Salone del Mobile, that he discovered Cosentino. It was certainly love at first sight. Cosentino had just launched the Industrial Collection at the Milan Design Week, and Barbotti found in it the perfect choice for the flooring and cladding of his new house, which he used in different colours, thicknesses and formats.

``I would like to highlight the versatility of the chosen materials, used in harmony with every space. Dekton and Silestone have their own language”.
Maurizio Barbotti

All Dekton’s possibilities in interior design

Barbotti’s Villa is part of a complex of six small houses. In the early stages of project specification, the architect stressed the importance of choosing materials that could speak for themselves. He found in Dekton a strong and resistant material perfect for open spaces and, at the same time, flexible to adapt to all kinds of designs.

In this way, Dekton was used in Villa Barbotti in different colours and finishes, from the flooring and cladding, to different areas of the house: kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and living room. And last but not least, it’s worth giving a nod to the stunning Silestone colour Eternal Marquina – a luxurious black with white veins – as the highlight of the living room.

This interior design project is a great example of the use of Dekton and Silestone in a residential environment, as well as of the endless possible combinations in terms of thicknesses, cuts, colours, finishes… Cosentino always comes up with an ideal solution for every architect, interior designer or builder’s creative project, no matter how challenging it may seem.

The new Hilton Garden Inn attracts visitors to Wiener Neustadt (Vienna New Town)

The Hilton Garden Inn is the first of these internationally renowned hotel chains to arrive in Lower Austria. With its central, yet idyllic position, the 4-star hotel is located in the park close to the city walls which date back to the time Wiener Neustadt was founded in the 12th century. The stone look of the “Kasematten” (former city fortification casements) are reflected in its interior design with Silestone quartz surfaces from Cosentino.

The new Hilton Garden Inn was completed in early 2019 in time for the opening of the Kasematten at the “World in Motion” state exhibition that was held the same year. In addition to the five-storey accommodation wing with 133 guest rooms, some of which are handicapped accessible, the hotel includes a fitness room, a bar and restaurant that are open to the public and a conference area with seminar rooms. The rooms facing south have a view of the park and those facing north have a view of the Aldstadt (Old Town) with the Capuchin Church and the cathedral.

Extremely elegant in both look and feel

“The architecture of the building is modern and open and, with its Garden Lounge and extensive use of glass, brings the adjacent city park and historic city walls into the atmospheric mix”, explains Peter Salem from Kaltenbacher Architektur. “The materials and colours of the surroundings are reflected in the interior spaces. Light, stone tones create a harmonious base radiating a calm that is softened by pastel accents. We used Silestone from Cosentino to achieve consistently sleek furniture surfaces in the silky matt grey shades of Kensho Suede that both look and feel extremely elegant.”

At the Hilton Garden Inn, Silestone was used as the durable and easy-care surface in the lobby, at the bar and for the tables in the reception area. Even the buffet and washstands in the bathrooms were designed using Silestone.

``Silestone is extremely versatile``

Ideal for large, seamless surfaces

“Silestone is extremely versatile if you know how to expertly work this hard material”, says Werner Brottrager, from Kamper Handwerk+Bau, who was responsible for the interior work in all the public areas on the ground floor. “The quartz panel can be finished using various edge types or bevel patterns to create complex profiles. It can also be precisely machined or drilled to form cutouts. However, Silestone is ideally suited for creating large seamless surfaces, like the beautiful 6-metre reception desk that greets guests at the Hilton in the Steinfeld”.
