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.

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 aesthetics to enhance flavours

The city of Bologna boasts an incredibly long history and is renowned for its architecture which, especially in recent years, has placed it among the top tourist destinations, both nationally and internationally. Its undisputed beauty is also combined with a truly unique gastronomic culture and, at the beginning of 2020, a new element was added to this rich culinary landscape: the Seta Meat Lab.

An elegant, sophisticated atmosphere makes the Seta Meat Lab stand out and permeates every aspect of the establishment, from the refined dishes to the interior design of the various spaces. The distinctive style of the décor combines radically different elements that find harmony expressed through casual combinations.

This ambitious project included the participation of Gruppo Cosentino, which completed Martelli Marmi tables by providing 55 square metres of 20 mm thick Dekton tabletops in a dark, matt Sirius finish.

Avant-garde design that stands up to diners

Dekton is created from a sophisticated blend of raw materials such as glass, state-of-the-art porcelain and quartz. As a result, the team responsible for renovating the former Gesto space were able to meet all demands, having found a material that offers great aesthetic appeal alongside being extremely resistant to stains, scratches and, most importantly, high temperatures.

This last aspect is crucial, since one of the highlights of the culinary experience offered by the Seta Meat Lab is that meat is served directly at the table on a hot plate. This is made possible thanks to the extraordinary technical properties of Dekton, which enable this to be done without running the risk of damaging the surface.

Lastly, the textured, jet black shade of Sirius adds a touch of realism, elegance and strength to the atmosphere of the restaurant, which, just a few months after its launch, has already become a landmark destination for meat lovers.

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”
Rainer Gassner

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”.

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

Maurizio Barbotti

Architect

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.

Hilton Garden Inn  - COL EXP 20190213 C68I8885 V01 225

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.

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”.

138m2 of Dekton and Silestone creating the feeling of freedom

There are restaurants designed with such attention to detail that diners find the interior as delightful as the food. In the grounds of São Paulo’s Museum of Image and Sound, Pipo serves a bold fusion menu for all five senses within an open-plan, airy space where food and nature are the stars. Dekton and Silestone surfaces form the basis for this delicious pairing.

Architects Renata Castilho and Camila Buciani, from RCB Arquitectura, wanted to create a relaxed, light-filled setting without architectural restrictions of any kind. The main kitchen opens onto the dining room, providing a live and direct view of the attention to detail that chefs put into every dish.

Dekton Orix; the colour of creation

{Dekton Orix, from the Industrial collection, lends elegant and surprising tones to this creative workspace: the mixture of blues, greens and blacks gives a distressed concrete look to the worksurfaces and grill, a particularly sensitive area due to the high temperatures. With its high resistance to heat, Dekton perfectly fulfils aesthetic requirements as well as technical ones.}}

Orix has also been used on one of the restaurant’s walls, providing the sense of unity that the project’s architects were looking for.

See the light with Dekton Nilium

A calm, luminous space, decorated with simplicity yet pleasing to the eye. This was the overarching concept driven by Renata Castilho and Camila Buciani. With wood and ornamental plants playing a key role, the design needed a surface that would complement these elements and reflect the joyful dazzle of Brazilian life. Dekton Nilium, also from the Industrial collection, was a particularly attractive option.

Reminiscent of the fine, sparkling sand of Brazil’s beaches, Nilium has been used to create harmony between the key surfaces, such as tables, countertops and the walls of the bar and wine cellar. The harmonious result elegantly contrasts with the materials chosen for the kitchen. The feeling of freedom is enhanced by Nilium, a colour full of nuances like the golden and grey flecks that enrich its tone.

Finally, the Blanco Capri shade, in Silestone this time, was chosen to continue the light and airy feel of the restaurant all the way to the bathrooms, which gleam thanks to this pristine tone.

A symbol of hope standing 234 metres high

The Leonardo tower, located in Sandton, Johannesburg, has become the tallest building in Africa. It measures 234 metres high and is divided into 55 floors. The work, which began in 2015 and was finished at the end of 2019, is, in the words of Bart Dorrestein, CEO of the company that built it, “a symbol of hope and the future for South Africa in difficult times”.

The Leonardo is located at 75 Maude Street, a stone’s throw from the economic, commercial and leisure hub that surrounds Nelson Mandela Square and the Sandton Convention Centre.

Torre Leonardo  - Leonardo Tower 8 295

A sustainable and energy-efficient skyscraper

Designed by South African firm, Co-Arc International Architects, the Leonardo is a tower that has various uses. It houses luxury residential homes including apartments comprising up to three bedrooms, eight penthouse suites featuring 360-degree panoramic views (the Leonardo Suite measures over 2,800 m2), 15,000 m2 of premium office space, a hotel, shops, restaurants, a spa, a terrace with a swimming pool and a gym.

Adopting a clear sustainable approach, with an ecological construction plan and optimised energy efficiency, the Leonardo has also been built using the most advanced technology.

Dekton ultra-compact surfaces have been chosen to clad the façade, lobby and pillars to help achieve optimised energy efficiency. In total, over 24,350 m2 of Dekton play a key role in a building that has already made history.

Elegance on every surface

The façade is made up of 8-mm-thick pieces of Dekton, in the colour Gada. The natural colour of Gada combined with its delicate veining is also featured throughout the lobby. Its aesthetics blend perfectly with the columns, which are clad in the same material, this time using the colour Keon. This material’s industrial and unfinished colour range offers the perfect look.

In addition, the Leonardo’s interiors are enhanced by the elegance and functionality of Silestone surfaces. Kitchen and bathroom worktops, as well as tabletops throughout all 254 apartments, have been crafted in different white and light shades of Silestone. A variety of colours from Silestone’s Eternal series are also featured throughout the restaurants, bars, nursery and gym.

Maison Bab  - MAISON 2 min 340

Maison Bab is a casual dining restaurant and culinary celebration of kebabs, located in Covent Garden, London. The second restaurant from founding partners, Stephen Tozer and Ed Brunet, its design is central to the relaxed vibe, boasting stylish interiors designed by Angus Buchanan. The ultra-compact Dekton by Cosentino surface brand is featured throughout, from the bar to the tabletops, providing a striking repetitive design that brings the space together.

The two storey space has ample space for diners, with a combination of bar, booth and table seating. Upstairs, the kitchen is on show for an element of culinary theatre and a nod to the humble kebab shop found on every street corner in London. An on-trend colour scheme of greys, soft pastels and plenty of greenery complements the copper accents throughout, whilst the exposed extraction adds an industrial vibe that is amplified by black metal racking at the bar. Downstairs, glossy white and green subway tiles and candy-pink seating provide a retro touch.

Ideal for use in busy catering evironments, Dekton offers a high resistance to scratches and stains, making it easy to maintain and keep clean. In addition, its high resistance to heat allows the chefs to plate up on the bar without fear of damaging the surface.

The latest addition to the Le Bab family from founders Stephen and Ed is Kebab Queen, a ‘restaurant within a restaurant’ situated in the lower level of Maison Bab and hidden behind the illuminated facade of a classic British kebab shop.

An adventurous and ambitious approach to dining, Kebab Queen invites guests to leave their fine dining expectations at the door with a completely plate-free experience. Headed up by Manu Canales, previously sous chef of London institution, Le Gavroche, the seven-course tasting menu has been influenced by Manu’s love for the flavours of kebab, cultivated during his trips across Turkey and beyond, combined with his rigorous Michelin training. The exclusive, intimate space welcomes up to ten diners at a time to enjoy dishes including Doner Risotto, complete with shavings of lambs’ tongues and ‘Got Milk?’ – freshly-baked, sticky milk buns inspired by Manu’s childhood.

Food is prepared in front of guests, who are seated on cobalt blue, leather-clad stools in a U-shape around the chef, with each dish plated directly onto a bespoke, heated Dekton countertop in the colour Zenith. Crucial to the concept of Kebab Queen, Cosentino’s ultra-compact Dekton surface provided the ultimate plate-free solution thanks to its hardwearing properties.

Co-founder, Stephen Tozer comments, “We wanted to create a restaurant and take away the plates – we wanted to serve dishes straight on to the counter in front of people. When you get in to the logistics of that, it becomes quite complicated. We heard about Dekton and started speaking with Cosentino and they loved the idea of what we were doing. Dekton blew our minds because it’s the only material that ticked so many boxes. It needs to be heat and scratch resistance and we need to be able to wipe it perfectly clean between courses. With Dekton, we can do this! So it’s completely pivotal to the whole dining concept, there is no way we could have achieved this with anything else. It was the difference between being able to go plateless and not.”

Head chef, Manu Canales, adds, “Kebab Queen is the pinnacle of our project. We want diners to relax and get stuck in; it’s about combining the intense flavours of high end dining with the communal, elbow-to-elbow fun of the kebab shop.”

Perfectly suited to intensive use in this unique culinary experience, Dekton boasts a high resistance to scratches, staining and heat. This makes it possible for hot pans to be placed straight down on to the surface during the plating up of dishes, and for the surface to be warmed from beneath ensuring food retains heat. Easy to clean, chef Manu wipes down the surface with a natural, food safe antibacterial spray between courses to ensure maximum hygiene and to avoid flavour transfer between dishes.

A material that adapts to any need

First impressions are so important in business. That is why it was worth choosing the right solution to design the reception area of One South County, a building that attracts business and talent in equal measure. The wide and imposing reception desk has been covered in 20 mm Kira Dekton, a colour and format that captures the attention of all those who visit the premises.

Dekton is an ideal solution for commercial projects in spaces that experience intense activity and high traffic, thanks to the resistant nature of the material. It is highly resistant to scratches and stains, meaning it can also be easily cleaned. Another important highlight is the fact that the slabs can be manufactured in large formats or custom sizes, offering architects and designers a high level of precision.

The ideal vein for a formal setting

Kira’s delicately veined and warm grey colour is an irresistible complement to the linear patterns that play an important role in the decor of the reception area. Giving the impression of having been carved from a single piece of natural stone, the effect across the desk as a whole represents a true exercise in minimalism and simplicity.

One South County is a prestigious avant-garde 12,840 m2 building of five floors, designed by the award-winning architects of The O’Toole Partnership (TOTP). Furthermore, the South County Business Park is in a prime location of Dublin, easily accessible from anywhere in the city as well as from other surrounding counties such as Wicklow, Kildare, Meath and Louth. The main public transport lines pass through this business park, located approximately 9 km from Dublin’s city centre.

Sustainable comfort

In December 2019, the world known hotel chain HILTON opened a new property in Poland, the first “Hilton Resort” hotel in the country. It is also the first Hilton chain facility in Poland built in accordance with LEED ecological certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

The property offers its guests a unique hospitality experience with direct neighborhood of wide natural beach and magnificent views of the Baltic Sea. Guests can choose from 173 luxury rooms and suites, each with a private balcony. At their disposal, they have a wide selection of services, including variety of restaurants, bars, SPA as well as access to recreational facilities – Baltic Park Molo Aquapark.

Eternal Calacatta Gold for a luxury interior design

“The design is closely related with the hotel’s environmental context. The look of the building and its interiors is clearly inspired by the sea – the spaces are dominated by rounded, wavy shapes and natural colors of earth and marine flora. These consistent yet intriguing forms, colors and textures used across the entire property create a feeling of comfort and allow for a multidimensional perception of spaces.” – mentions Łukasz Pisarek, Chief Architect of Zdrojowa Invest.

Decorated with highest attention to details, Hilton Resort & SPA represents a perfect place for those who enjoy a moment of relaxation while surrounded by art and world class design. In order to ensure a feeling of luxury and highest quality, multiple surfaces in the hotel have been embellished by Silestone by Cosentino quartz conglomerate in one of its most elegant patterns – Eternal Calacatta Gold. Almost 700 m2 have been covered with this material, which, used in a wide variety of applications and combined with graceful textures and warm tones of wood, created a blend of ultra-stylish interiors across the entire building.

Surfaces that strike with subtle details

What cannot remain unnoticed is an extraordinary fabrication method of the Silestone surface. Following the main design idea, majority of the structures in Hilton are of curved, wave-like form. These organic shapes have been enfolded by the gold-veined quartz conglomerate, creating an astonishing effect that plays with light and volume.

“Eternal Calacatta Gold is a beautiful and impressive texture. Silestone’s quality could be seen, for example, in the rounded elements that had to be fabricated with highest precision and attention to details. Its production is very similar to work with natural stone – it allows you to freely finish the edges whilst keeping the original design of the material.” – says Dariusz Drzewiecki, Project Managerf of Cloon, fabrication company responsible for preparation of stone surfaces for the hotel

Ideal colors for every situation

Silestone with white background and delicate greyish veins played an important role in defining the atmosphere of the interiors. It was selected for multiple applications, from bathroom countertops in rooms and toilets, surfaces covering bars, buffets, and reception desk, to exclusive finishes of coffee tables or vertical panels. Thanks to use of this white and elegant material, even the most monumental structures present in the public spaces of the property are perceived as illuminated and subtle.

Beauty and resistance

Not without a reason Silestone was the material of choice for the work surfaces in the hotel.

„Project had to fulfill the highest aesthetic requirements and, at the same time, ensure the best durability of implemented solutions and products. In order to achieve that, all material proposals were verified by contractors after the design stage. As a result of this process, some finishes originally designed in natural stone were replaced by Silestone, particularly due to its properties and resistance to external factors.” – Łukasz Pisarek adds.

Hotel buffets, bathroom tops or furniture in a wellness studio are subject to extremely intensive use. These structures demand highly durable material, resistant to external factors like food, liquids, or chemical substances that can easily damage more sensitive surface. With Silestone, the Hilton’s interiors will certainly maintain their beauty for years.
