Cosentino Group presented Dektonhenge by Apparatu during Milan Design Week 2016 in Via Savona.
Dektonhenge by Apparatu is an experimental project created by Xavier Mañosa, founder of design studio Apparatu. The project proposes a review of the origins of Dekton. Together with Cosentino’s R&D department, Mañosa puts the ultra-compact surface through a ductile and malleable process. Working with Dekton as a raw material, he explained the transformation of the material from its liquid to solid states, similar to the process for ceramics. The aim of the ceramist was to discover new ways of working with Dekton, to find out how versatile Dekton could be, and the different uses to which it could be subjected.
In the past, only clay, grass, cement, carpet and the latest-generation innovations such as synthetic astroturf were available. But 2016 heralds the arrival of a new and revolutionary surface for tennis, Dekton. The ultra-compact material made by Cosentino Group for the use in architecture and design makes its entrance into the world of tennis at the Mutua Madrid Open. It is the only combined ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and WTA Premier Mandatory event held in Europe. Read more
