A material suitable for any application

The Spanish Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 brought together imagination, architecture and innovation to create a timeless design. Inspired by a twin-unit greenhouse with a portico structure, the b720 Fermín Vázquez architectural studio used Dekton ultra-compact surface to create all kinds of applications, from planters to bartops, stairs and flooring. Overall, more than 1,000 m2 of material, cut-to-size and with different finishes, was used.

Under the premise of combining tradition with innovation, the aim was to combine noble materials, such as wood, with cutting-edge technology. Architects and interior designers carried out an interesting experiment that was made possible thanks to the customisation possibilities of Dekton iD: to evolve from the greenhouse to the tomato, and from the tomato to its genome.

Dekton iD, a blank canvas

Thanks to Cosentino’s Dekton ID service, professionals can customise Dekton slabs to the very last detail. Exclusive colours, specific thicknesses, customised textures and, as in the case of the Spanish Pavilion, the possibility of printing patterns, drawings and letters directly on the surface using inkjet technology.

Under the slogan “The language of flavour”, Fermín Vázquez´s studio designed the recreation of the tomato genome, one of the greatest recent achievements in the field of biotechnology. To carry out the task successfully, the studio chose Dekton Zenith large format slabs, 2 cm thick. The letters of the genome as well as the representation of the tomato itself are imprinted on the surface of the material, without compromising either its resistance properties or ease of maintenance.

A design service to create experiences

The Spanish Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 spanned more than 3,000 m2 and included several areas: an auditorium or multi-purpose room, an exhibition area, a vegetable garden, a restaurant and workshops. In short, a number of very specific demands that required a material capable of withstanding intensive use. Thanks to its low porosity, Dekton makes daily maintenance easy, and is recommended for high traffic areas.

Its technical features make Dekton a key material for the requirements of projects intended for the general public; Dekton iD service makes the experience unforgettable.

A unique and sustainable project

Located in the heart of Riga, Origo shopping centre has recently been transformed into a hub of intense economic and social activity.

The building has been extended with six new floors with offices, restaurants and an underground car park. Cosentino ultra compact surface, Dekton, has been used for the flooring and stairs. The key reasons for choosing Dekton have included its BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) high score, and its great resistance to the high pedestrian traffic.

Thanks to Cosentino’s Dekton iD service, it has been possible to create a bespoke “clock” design which has been used on floors, creating an avant-garde space.

Dekton iD, limitless designs

The main visual attraction of the new facilities lies in the clock embedded in the flooring of one of its central squares. Customized pieces fitted together like a puzzle and creating a high-impact visual sensation from Sirius and Danae colours.

Dekton iD service includes personalised advice from Cosentino’s R&D team together with the architectural studio, with the aim of customizing Dekton slabs to create exclusive colours, unique patterns, original textures and finishes.

``Project managers were very demanding in terms of certifications and tests. It was important that the material had a high slip resistance``

A flooring that complies with BREEAM certification.

The extension of the shopping centre also had an ambitious goal: to achieve a high BREEAM rating. Dekton has obtained the Environmental Product Declaration. This makes it easy for a project to be in compliance with the high sustainability requirements imposed by the legislation.

Dekton iD service, together with the high performance of its ultra-compact surface, have turned the Origo shopping centre into an exclusive space designed to last.

A refurbishment that looks to the future

The capital of Azerbaijan, Baku, is strategically located on a small peninsula in the Caspian Sea. It is a historical link between the East and West, and its international airport is proof of this. The redevelopment of Heydar Aliyev not only allowed the airport to include more flights, but also completely changed its .appearance. Today, this key facility for the country, is an architectural benchmark as functional as it is attractive.

The outdoor flooring refurbishment was one of the main changes that the government authorities required. They were looking for a futuristic appearance, in line with the city’s new architectural projects, such as the ‘Flame Towers’, where striking geometric shapes capture the attention of those who look at them. The customization possibilities of the Dekton iD service resulted in a unique design.

Dekton iD, customization in detail

The Baku airport captivates the traveller from the minute they enter, as they are greeted with extensive Dekton flooring, consisting of equilateral triangles of 1.5 metres side length, which was designed especially for the entrance. The chromatic variation in three shades of Sirius colour -specially created for this design-, together with the geometric shapes, produce a striking 3D effect of raised cubes that is reflected in the window of the main entrance to the building.

With the Dekton iD service, it is possible to customize Dekton slabs down to the smallest detail, from the cut and colour – as in this Project -, to the texture and finish. Overall, the entrance to Baku airport results in a continuous flow where the tone of Sirius slate forms a natural extension of the building’s façade, which is also clad with triangular glass panes.

A material that preserves chromatic homogeneity

In any large architectural project, outdoor flooring is a complex space that is constantly exposed to sunlight, high pedestrian traffic and thermal contrasts, which can generate material damage or colour degradation. Thanks to its composition and aesthetic properties, Dekton overcomes these challenges and guarantees both colour resistance and homogeneity, that remain unchanged over time.

With five million passengers a year, Baku airport is a major transportation hub not only for Azerbaijan, but for the entire Middle East region, and has become a unique architectural reference.

Facade, flooring, elevators, floors, interiors, and more. A dream realized in more than 28,000 m2 of Dekton

Located in the centre of Tel Aviv at the junction of two shopping streets, the ToHa building reaches 29 stories high. Its unique, faceted profile, inspired by the geometry of an iceberg, was designed by Ron Arad together with Avner Yashar’s local team to house an office complex that includes a public garden, viewing point and restaurant.

Innovative and functional interior and exterior architecture

From a functional point of view, this ambitious project turns the traditional layout of an office block on its head, locating the facilities on the ground floor to free up space at the top. This way, the upper levels can be dedicated to leisure use and the offices are distributed from the seventh floor and up, optimizing access to natural light and views.

The technical foundations are clad using a unique ventilated facade system that alternates the orientation of intersecting Dekton® panels. This application allows for the passage of air between the large-format (320 x 70 cm) plates and creates a uniform frontage that gives texture and depth to the elevation. Cosentino also offers the opportunity to custom-make a personalised palette of six colours, based on the Strato model, that create a progressive colour gradation from the lower part upwards.

Interior and exterior: A balance of light and visual continuity

Inside, a huge 30-metre atrium acts as a vestibule and meeting point. The offices face outwards, through a glass facade, and inwards towards the central patio lit by a large light well.

Finishes have been carefully chosen to create a comfortable workplace and coherent corporate image. The possibility to produce large-format Dekton pieces for floors, walls and ceilings allows the number of joints to be reduced and the sense of continuity to be maximized.
