A Sneak Peek At Milan Design Week 2017: Cosentino

Last week, I had a chance to grab a sneak peek of the newest project by Cosentino, the Spanish interior design house specializing in stylish, modern designs. This year’s presentation by Cosentino for Milan Design Week consists of two projects that are explorations in the countless applications of Dekton®.

Madera Meets Dekton®

Cosentino - Milan Design Week 2017- Madera Meets Dekton

The first project, titled “Madera Meets Dekton®”, is a collaborative piece between Cosentino and Riva 1920 to curate a unique fixture that blurs the lines between furniture and art. Renowned designer, Daniel Germani blends the beauty of master woodworking with the elegance of the Dekton®  XGloss Spectra surface.

The result? A high-quality, timeless furniture piece where innovation, design and technology is fused together. the ultra-compact Dekton®  Spectra surface meets American walnut curated by Riva.

I absolutely fell in love with this piece. The wooden elements immediately reminded me of my trip to Muir Woods. How could you not love this piece?

Three years in the making, Cosentino’s second project, Dektonclay, is the handiwork of Spanish ceramics designer Xavier Mañosa. In conjunction with Apparatu design studio, Mañosa explores versatile ways of working with the ultra-compact Dekton®  material in a unique kitchen concept.

Mañosa was inspired to curate a collection of pieces all made from the same material in varying applications, including crockery and kitchen utensils, fixtures, and even a stove. You can see the versatility in his works.  From the stove worktop to the pots with handles, everything was made from Dekton®.

Like the ceramics process, each piece was modeled, pressed, drawn and fired. The true art was working with the Dekton® material at varying temperatures and densities to discover truly how versatile it really is.

I thought this kitchen concept was extremely unique and interesting. It is a kitchen fit for Wilma Flintstone! Mixing the sleek with the hard is a great way to blend two contrasting elements.
