Each space shows that Cosentino products can create magnificent spaces whether they are urban or rural, indoor or outdoor and emphasize the products’ versatility and adaptability to different styles.

In each space, Cosentino also showcases the aesthetic integration and continuity of its innovative bath collection. Silestone and Dekton’s physical and mechanical performance allow them to be used throughout the entire bathroom.

DEKTONHENGE BY APPARATU:

Press Event:  April 14,  6:00pm

Show Dates: April 12 – 17 

Open: 10:00am – 10:00pm

Address: 35 Via Savona (Milan)

This week Cosentino will also present its experimental Dektonhenge by Apparatu project developed by Xavier Mañosa, founder of the prestigious Apparatu design studio.

This collaboration gives insight into the origins of Dekton. Along with Cosentino’s R&D department, Xavier puts the ultra-compact surface through a ductile and malleable process. He explains the material’s transformation from a liquid to a solid state, similar to the process for ceramics. 

Xavier selects a natural rock and digitizes its surface. From the digital copy, he creates pieces in different shapes and sizes so they can later be artisanally molded. The result of this experimental exercise is Dektonhenge by Apparat, an ensemble of pieces in different shapes and sizes.
