Recently, I visited the Milan Design Week together with Cosentino to have a closer look at their new design projects.
„Madera Meets Dekton®“
In Milan it was first the presentation of the project “Madera Meets Deckton” in the Milan showroom of Cosentino.
Cosentino, world market leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for the world of architecture and design, presented together with Riva 1920 the project “Madera Meets Dekton®”, designed by renowned designer Daniel Germani.
“Madera Meets Dekton®” is a unique, breathtaking collection of timeless beauty. The combination of solid walnut and the impressive radiance of Dekton® Spectra gives a unique, spectacular piece of furniture that is a real gift for the world of international design, “said Santiago Alfonso, Vice President of Marketing and Communication at Cosentino.
Combining it with the Dekton® material, which offers a unique functionality for design and architecture applications, “Madera Meets Dekton®” reinterprets the essence of wood.
In my opinion really impressive and very beautifully processed design piece. I especially like the combination of the dark beautiful grained walnut wood with the cool-acting Dekton.
DEKTONCLAY – THE NEW APPARATU PROJECT FOR COSENTINO
The next stop at Milan Design Week was dedicated to the “DEKTONCLAY” project.Tthe design team created a kitchen and dishes made of the raw material of Dekton.
This project is the result of the collaboration between Cosentino and the Spanish ceramics studio and design studio, which was started three years ago and managed by Xavier Mañosa.
Dektonclay has been featured in the 15th edition of the Milan Design Week in # Room1 as part of the group exhibition Ladies and Gentlemen. This exhibition is co-produced by the non-profit organization 5VIE, whose aim is to promote the cultural and territorial development of the historic center of Milan.
In the course of this new Dekton® project, Xavier Mañosa examines the concept of cooking using a series of exhibits from the same material that combines cooking and eating. Inspired by the idea of using the same material in all areas of the kitchen, the designer presents a collection of crockery and kitchen utensils, furniture and even a stove. The cooking area, the worktops, the pots and handles were all modeled from Dekton®, pressed, drawn and fired, while the moldability of the material was tested by using various manual methods.
This was a really very extraordinary and exciting project, to see the material Dekton in such contrasting forms and uses. Impressively how versatile Dekton presents itself. The kitchen is also functional as a gas kitchen.
How do you like the design projects of Cosentino? Did you know the material Dekton already?
