Raytrace at Milan Design Week
Benjamin Hubert & Dekton by Cosentino
Milan, Italy
Presented at Milan Design Week 2019, Raytrace is an architectural installation for displaying the innovative product Dekton® by Cosentino, which comes alive in the light.

Designed by LAYER founder Benjamin Hubert using Dekton® by Cosentino, Raytrace was put on display in the historical vaulted warehouses situated under the Milan Central Station as part of the third Ventura Centrale exhibition. This venue is a triangular tunnel 25 meters long and 6 meters high, with a mirror at each end that reflects the installation and creates the illusion of an infinite space. Around the triangular tunnel are twenty stools made of Dekton®, inviting visitors to sit down and enjoy the installation.
In designing Raytrace, Benjamin Hubert drew inspiration from the process of elaborating Dekton®, giving the material its water element back and imitating the refraction of light through water. As they enter the installation, visitors can contemplate the mesmerizing caustic design that presents a slow motion, with ripples projected on the surfaces that produce a soothing effect, evoking the calm we feel when immersed in water.
 
Raytrace uses the new Dekton® Slim, which is only 4 mm thick: durability and technology in a finer, lighter format. Right on the cutting edge for surfaces and one of the lightest in the market, it opens up new possibilities for application in architecture, precisely the project’s intention.
