Why use Dekton for fountains?

The Kiryat Gat water fountain in Israel is located in a very special place, where the old and new city meet. Furthermore, this new fountain at the junction of several roads also serves as a gateway to the city.

When artist and designer Elya Shapiro was commissioned to design and build this fountain, his first thought was to choose a beautiful and stunning material which would also age well over time. The choice of Dekton Ventus met most of the requirements of the project: it is resistant to chlorine and salt water, can be cut precisely to suit different thicknesses and is suitable for use with a KEIL anchoring system on the façade.

Shapiro also took aesthetic considerations into account in his choice, such as the wide range of Dekton colours and the possibility of custom cutting, depending on the needs of the project (with or without edges, for example).

From a professional point of view, Shapiro considered the advantages of working with Cosentino: long-term warranty, responsiveness and problem-solving, on-time delivery and supply of additional, perfectly packaged material, in case of breakage.

The cycle of life as inspiration

Shapiro designed a huge, constantly moving spiral that would create different perspectives depending on the direction of the traffic. The spiral symbolises the cycle of life that leads to infinity. To create this movement, the fountain uses 180 small sprinklers mounted on its inner face, which spray water at the centre, in the middle of the arch. The point where all the water comes together generates a water explosion and a waterfall that symbolises the connection between traffic and urban roads in the public space.

The human challenge of this project lies in combining different disciplines harmoniously, from large-scale construction work to the development of small processor chips. The execution of the project required very careful planning and coordination.

From a technical point of view, the challenge was to design an arch which would simultaneously twist and converge. The dimensions vary along the entire length of the structure, thus requiring different fittings at each point of the arch. Furthermore, in order to simplify and customise the different production processes, cutting-edge technologies were used to provide first-class performance.

A renovation between design and durability

Located at the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District, Lau Pa Sat (meaning ‘The Old Market’ in Singapore’s colloquial Chinese) is one of the oldest Victorian-era structures in Southeast Asia. It was first built in 1824 as a waterfront fish market elsewhere before undergoing several refurbishments and relocated to its current location in 1894. The market was converted into a hawker centre in 1972 and gazetted as a national monument in 1973.

Today, Lau Pa Sat still sports the same cast-iron octagonal structure designed by engineer James MacRitchie in 1894, but with a thoroughly modernised interior.

Cosentino has taken part in the historic revamp which was completed in 2020. Done by local architecture studio Farm, Lau Pa Sat’s latest renovation applies a combined total of 410 sqm of Dekton and Silestone for various areas within Food Folks.

Dekton Keyla, a color to play with contrast

Durability, cleaning and maintenance are an important part in deciding what materials are best to use for the high-traffic F&B and retail space in Lau Pa Sat. Highly resistant to heat, cold, scratches, stains, and non-porous, ultracompact Dekton and quartz surface Silestone are the ideal choices for the countertops in Lau Pa Sat.

Lau Pa Sat sports a total of 260 sqm of 20mm-thick Dekton Kelya as its semi-outdoor stalls’ countertops. Inspired by dark marbles, Dekton® Kelya features a handsome dark background with subtle brown flecks and elegant pale veins that makes it ideal for high-performing areas that frequently come in contact with oil, water, heat and stains, as seen at the venue’s famous mixed rice stalls.

“Dekton Kelya has a quiet yet mysterious character that does not clash with the busy hawker stalls,” a representative for Farm explains.

Grand Paris Express

By 2021, the Paris metropolitan area will have almost 12.5 million inhabitants. It is by far the largest urban area in the European Union and is expected to continue to grow in the coming years. Whilst there are a number of urban challenges, inter-city transport around Paris is undoubtedly one of the most important.

In response to this growth, the French authorities have come up with an ambitious project, the Grand Paris Express (GPE), a public transport network consisting of 4 cutting-edge driverless metro lines. Over the next 15 years, a total of 200 km of new track between 64 stations will be built.

One of the key phases of a project of this scale is the construction of ‘pilot’ stations that will serve as a guide for the entire project. It was precisely in one of these stations, ‘La Fabrique du Metro’, where GPE managers turned to Dekton to test the possibilities of the material as well as the capacity of the Cosentino team to provide advice throughout the project.

“I believe this material will appeal to both users and station designers”
GPE Materials Manager: Didier BOURGEOIS

GPE Materials Manager: Didier BOURGEOIS

Ultra-compact surface to withstand heavy traffic

The stations of the Grand Paris Express will soon be used by tens of thousands of passengers every day. As a result, this type of public infrastructure is subject to very heavy wear for which not all floors are suitable. The ultra-compact Dekton material is specially designed for these challenges, as it is highly resistant to impact and scratches.

Furthermore, as a non-porous material, Dekton is easy to maintain, whether it is dirt and grime from daily traffic, or more aggressive stains such as graffiti. The Cosentino surface keeps its uniform colour even when exposed to abrasive elements that would damage other materials.

It is no wonder that these physical-mechanical properties, together with its limitless cutting possibilities, have captivated GPE’s managers. But there is more to it than that.

Dekton iD, a blank canvas

Grand Paris Express is set to be a unique infrastructure in the world, featuring innovations in many areas of engineering and civil transport: from its trains operated automatically by means of algorithms and AI, to the use of materials specifically designed for the project, such as the Dekton surface customised with the Dekton iD service.

Dekton iD is a blank canvas, a customisation service that allows the architect or designer to choose from the thickness of the material to its cut, texture, finish and colour. And colour was precisely the key element in the search for distinction: there is room for many styles and architectural elements in 64 metro stations, so it was essential to find a neutral colour with character that would not clash with the different environments; this is how ‘Paris’, the customised colour for the GPE, was born.

Sustainability is no longer optional

More than a trend, the use of sustainable materials has become a requirement for any public works project. That is why Dekton, a carbon neutral product made from 99% recycled water and 100% clean energy, was perfect for this project.

After the tests at ‘La Fabrique du Metro’, the Grand Paris Express team know that they can count on Dekton not only for flooring, but also for other applications such as stairs, wall cladding or even station façades, an application that has made Dekton a benchmark in the market.

Respect for the sense of space

The historical centre of Cuenca, located in the heart of Spain, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The passage of time and the city’s surroundings have shaped an urban architecture the greatest example of which is the well-known Casas Colgadas (Hanging Houses), a group of three Gothic-style residential buildings on a cliff overlooking the Huécar river.

The Casas Colgadas, which date back to the 16th century, have been restored on many occasions to maintain their essence to the present day. The latest restoration has been carried out by the Redondo Soria Arquitectos studio, which has performed a complete refurbishment of the outdoor and indoor spaces, areas that also house the Spanish Abstract Art Museum and the Casas Colgadas restaurant.

Respect for the historical heritage, the restoration and optimisation of the spaces, and their appropriate accessibility have been the main aims of this challenging refurbishment project in which Cosentino Natural Stone has been used for different surfaces of the restaurant, such as the flooring, cladding and furniture.

``Cosentino responded to our requests and requirements from the very beginning, giving us various technical and material options for what we needed``
Redondo Soria Arquitectos

Unique atmospheres

As an extension of the historical group of buildings with a marked Gothic character, both the museum and the restaurant adopt different urban features and bring them inside the building – the staircases. These single flight staircases in Negro Zimbawe granite with a vintage finish flow from the mezzanine level of the dining room to welcome the user and take them to the upper floor, as if they were a continuation of the floor, to one of the dining rooms, known as the Sala Negra.

A wine cellar has been created in the space previously intended for toilets, and Ónix Miel in Polished finish has been chosen for a high table. The result is a stunning piece of design that stands out in an intimate space for wine tasting.

A refurbishment designed to last

One of the major project refurbishments has taken place on the second floor, where there used to be a house with a space under cover for storage, in disuse and in very poor condition. The framing has been demolished to make the space look bigger, creating a geometry similar to the main hall of the Spanish Abstract Art Museum and trying to recreate the textures, light and colour of the so-called Sala Blanca, where the Blanco Thassos colour has been used for flooring, also in Natural Stone and in Polished finish.

Another of the dining rooms, the Sala Pétrea, has a powerful and abstract design, with granite and geometric materials as the main features. The use of Pacific Grey for flooring, as well as wall cladding and the central table, has achieved an impressive room that brings the gothic style of the streets into the restaurant.

All in all, the refurbishment of the Casas Colgadas together with the museum and the restaurant has achieved harmony between the historical and heritage outside and the artistic and culinary experience offered inside this iconic architectural landmark.

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.

Pabellón Milán  - Pabellon España Milan 2015 Dekton 030 381
Pabellón Milán  - Pabellon España Milan 2015 Dekton 026 scaled 383

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.

A flooring system designed to withstand everyday stress

The Vega area is expected to grow to around 10,000 inhabitants and approximately 4,200 people are expected to commute from the station. This has given an improved public transport through Vega station where trains stop on every 15 minutes for most of the day. Given the high level of passenger traffic, the architectural project required the use of a material that was resistant to the daily hustle and bustle and also facilitated the maintenance and cleaning of the floors.

Finally, the architects chose Dekton because it is an extremely impact, scratch and abrasion resistant product. In addition, floors equipped with Dekton have a high resistance to both UV radiation and low temperatures.

More than 500 m2 of Dekton for floring and stairs

Availability was key at the station and the passenger spaces at Vega station are adapted for travelers with disabilities or traveling with a wheelchair, walker and stroller.

“Terazzo has been used for so many years and projects, they were looking for a new design for this project. Dekton was the design they were looking for.”

Elegance with Domoos and Spectra

The southern entrance to the University of Missouri stadium – the renowned Faurot Field – is no longer just a venue for fans. During the stadium’s latest renovation, the so-called ‘Entrance of champions’ was integrated with a spectacular diamond pattern using Dekton colours Domoos and Spectra.

The colours that give life to this facade were chosen carefully to fit in beautifully with the elegant and innovative design that the University management wanted to offer students attending all sporting events. The first things that visitors are attracted by are the contrasts between the matt finish of Domoos and the polished and mirrored-effect of Spectra.

When technical requirements do not limit design

One of the main requirements of those managing this project was to find a material that was aesthetically attractive which could also withstand external forces. In Missouri, winters temperatures drop to below zero, while in summer they often exceed 30 degrees.

Dekton easily meets these requirements by providing a high resistance to both thermal contrast and UV rays, guaranteeing that the intensity and uniformity of colours are preserved over time. In addition, thanks to its low porosity, Dekton is easy to clean and maintain.

``The strength and durability of Dekton make it an ideal material for facades exposed to extreme thermal contrasts``
