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.”

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.”

The facade rediscovered with Dekton by Cosentino

In the ultra-compact Dekton by Cosentino surface, the extraordinary Kap West office building in the “Am Hirschgarten” district of central Munich has found the perfect solution for the highly sophisticated architectural design of a technologically advanced facade.

Visionary, expressive and impressive in every sense of the word: in this Munich district, Kap West reaches for the sky as the latest architectural landmark in the Bavarian capital. The most remarkable visual element of the whole is the design of the facade, using Dekton by Cosentino.

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 122 128

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.

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.

5 NEIGHBORHOODS. 5 WAYS OF LIVING GLOBALLY.

We invite you on a journey through the architectural and the sensory, a voyage to the heart of urban style, guided by Loft, a series that brings to life the design, character, and essence of five iconic neighborhoods around the world.

Let’s begin our journey in England, among the bustling grey of Camden. We will make the most of our trip through Europe and enjoy colors under the Mediterranean light of Poblenou. We will leave the old continent behind and head for New York, where we will walk through Seaport, a color full of marine efflorescence, and then venture into Manhattan to visit the daring and sophisticated Nolita. Our chromatic and sensory journey will culminate in Detroit, in the ever elegant and unique Corktown.

LOFT Series  - loft 02 186

Silestone’s 5 new colors are inspired by concrete, a material capable of instilling emotions through its textures, finishes, and shades, creating a new relationship between people and objects. A new soulful identity is born, in which materials come to life in their rawest form. Let’s get started.

01/CAMDEN

Rusty tones, steely shades, and the wear and tear of living spaces have inspired Camden. A soft, delicate, homogeneous grey, with a fine grain and a very subtle white veining. Camden is cement grey. It is a versatile, adaptable color, easy to incorporate with any decoration.

LOFT Series  - Moodboards 1 Loft Canden 188
LOFT Series  - Camden 190

02/POBLENOU

Poblenou is a warm, smooth, shade of grey, with very subtle veins on its surface. A matte color reminiscent of Mediterranean sand. The ideal tone to use in a day-to-day family atmosphere.

LOFT Series  - Moodboards 2 Loft Poblenou 192
LOFT Series  - PobleNeu 194

03/SEAPORT

Seaport is a complex grey full of possibilities. It recreates a dark cement color with a worn charm. Its hazy white shade invites you to explore different atmospheres, offering a unique proposition. It is an eccentric color, with personality, ready to satisfy the most demanding preferences.

LOFT Series  - Moodboards Loft Seaport 196
LOFT Series  - Seaport 198

04/NOLITA

Nolita is a white color with interesting variations of neutral grey tones. It combines especially well with open spaces, where purity and calm are sought, walking hand in hand with art and avant-garde.

LOFT Series  - Moodboards 4 Loft Nolita 200
LOFT Series  - Nolita 202

05/CORKTOWN

Its deep grey is ideal to combine with aged materials, such as exposed brick and subtle oxidized colors. Open-grained wood combines perfectly with Corktown to create elegant and mature spaces, and colors such as dark green, and deep grained stone help establish the soft lighting that is characteristic of sophisticated spaces.

Interior Cladding, Design and Quality

The first stage of Dekton design is the quality of its image. Its designs are inspired by the most sought-after natural materials or by breaking trends, with the unrivalled properties of Dekton. It is a material that can be appreciated both from a distance, to observe the flow of its structure, or from up close, to distinguish all its details.

Interior Cladding  - flooring large format 227

Large format for versatile solutions

Dekton’s large format for interior coatings (3200 x 1440) allows a smaller number of joints. A smaller number of joints translates into a more continuous surface; this aspect is essential in interiors since it makes the space seem larger.

The flatness of the product enhances the extended effect of the material, making the surrounding interior an endless plane.

Choice of Dekton thicknesses: 8 mm / 12 mm / 20 mm

Private Areas/Pedestrian Use: In general, in private areas exclusively for pedestrian use, we can choose the thickness and design of the form freely and without restrictions.

Public spaces mainly for pedestrians: For public spaces that are mainly for pedestrian access or that allow occasional vehicles, the thicknesses of 12 mm and 20 mm are ideal, and may be free in the format. For 8 mm, we recommend the use of square formats, since it improves performance in the event of possible unevenness of the substrate.

Joints

The placement joints are an essential element for the quality, durability and good performance of the flooring.

It is recommended that you have a joint of 2 mm in interiors and 3 mm for exteriors, and always respect the structural joints, expansion or movement of the building.

The stability of the supports, the environmental conditions, the requirements for use and the properties of the selected grouts and sealing materials will be of great importance for the design of the joint.

Finishes

Dekton is prepared to respond to all the irregular points of a floor.

Skirting:

Dekton can be manufactured in strips to create a skirting board that gives continuity to the surface, respecting the aesthetics of the floor and also providing the same technical characteristics and maintenance to this piece.

Exterior corners:

The corners must be designed taking into account the mechanical stresses to which they will be exposed. In general, it is advisable to round or reinforce the edge.

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.

The material chosen by the professionalss

The ultra-compact surface Dekton has once again proven to be the surface brand of choice for professional chefs due to its superior technical properties and stylish designs, with its specification throughout the Vanderlyle restaurant, Cambridge. Led by chefs, Alex Rushmer, a former Masterchef finalist, and Lawrence Butler, Vanderlyle prides itself on working closely with local suppliers, serving up a truly seasonal menu that celebrates simple, unfussy food. Open four days a week, the restaurant also offers select diners a unique chef’s table experience. Additionally, up to four guests are able to be seated at the Dekton pass with views directly into the kitchen, watching their dinners be prepared and served in an intimate setting.

During the process of renovating the establishment prior to opening, Alex and Lawrence discovered a multitude of paint layers on the walls, created collaboratively by generations of previous occupants. This inspired the interior design of the restaurant, which juxtaposes the raw, stripped back walls with modern painted joinery and brass elements for a minimal, industrial edge which reflects the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant.

A robust surface full of design possibilities

The restaurant’s surfaces are a stand-out feature of the restaurant’s open design. Fabricated and installed by Cambridge-based Eadonstone, three different Dekton designs were chosen for the space, helping to visually zone the restaurant.

Firstly, greeting guests as they enter the restaurant, Dekton Arga from the Stonika collection has been used for the bar area in a chunky 30mm thickness. Inspired by premium natural stone, Arga has creamy undertones which adds a touch of luxury, reflecting the bottles and mirrored backsplash. 12mm Dekton Kira, with its grey base tone and delicate white veining, was selected for the impressive restaurant pass. This doubles up as an intimate ‘chef’s table’ dining area thanks to a deep overhang, made possible thanks to Dekton’s high flexural strength.

An industrial touch for the kitchen

Industrial-look Dekton Nilium, also in 12mm thickness, was the perfect choice for the restaurant’s open kitchen. Permanently on display to diners, the kitchen consists of a length L shaped worktop and a generously proportioned central island, which also houses the kitchen’s hobs and ovens.

Thanks to Dekton’s high resistance to heat, Vanderlyle’s chefs can place hot pans or dishes straight down on to the Dekton kitchen countertops and open pass, without fear of damaging the surface. Other benefits that set Dekton apart as the ideal surface for use in professional catering environments include a high resistance to scratches and stains, making for easy cleaning to ensure a hygienic space.
