Cosentino to present ‘House of Dekton’ in Munich and Stockholm
Early in 2015 at two international exhibitions, the Munich BAU show and the Stockholm Furniture Fair, Cosentino Group will be presenting a house entirely made of Dekton. Playing with large-format panels (1.44 x 3.20 meters), Steffam Kehrle has designed the so-called House of Dekton, with its tetradecagonal geometry, in this ultracompact material which allows unlimited configurations and resists thermal shock in heat, ice, and thawing. It is also resistant to the impacts of scratching and abrasion, so can be used in much circulated places. Present in over eighty countries, the Almería-based company launched Dekton to the market in 2013, following six years of development and a huge investment. It is derived from the innovative Technology of Sinterized Particles (TSP), an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone goes through when subjected to very high temperatures and pressures in the course of thousands of years.
