The multinationally operating Almería-based firm Cosentino was at Construmat 2015, the international construction trade fair held in Barcelona last May, presenting ‘House of Dekton,’ a tetradecagonal hut entirely raised with panels made of the ultracompact Dekton surface. Displayed inside, on a table at the center, were the fifteen original colors with which Dekton came into being in 2013. At this year’s fair Cosentino launched seven new tones within the four ranges of the Dekton palette: the Solid Collection now includes Ventus, Korus, and Galema, three new gray and ocher tones that aim for purity and chromatic continuity; the Tech Collection adds Keon, which imitates the natural look of concrete; the Natural Collection incorporates Kelya, inspired in dark-toned natural stones found in Spain; and finally the Wild Collection offers Borea and Makai, colors of wooden texture.
