Dekton by Cosentino ultracompact surface in Keranium colour, selected by Daniel Libeskind for his outdoors sculpture presented in Venice Biennale 2014.
• Dekton by Cosentino is a new and revolutionary ultracompact surface.
Daniel Libeskind has selected the ultra-compact surface Dekton® by Cosentino in its Keranium colour for his outdoors 5.5 meter high sculpture of a skewed axis from, that forms part of Sonnets in Babylon, presented by the renowned architect for the Venice Pavilion in 2014 Architecture Biennale.
The finish of this spectacular sculptural “X” in Dekton by Cosentino has been designed as a ventilated façade that shrouds the entire work. 65m2 of paneling and 15m2 of flooring in more than 50 pieces of various sizes, the largest 2.55m x 1.40m, of the ultra-compact surface with a thickness of 12mm. Paneling and flooring are presented in the same colour, Keranium, which has an industrial aesthetic. That enduring character of the unyielding resistance of natural stone is embodied in Keranium, a surface with unique colours.
Dekton® is a sophisticated mixture of the raw materials that is used to manufacture glass, porcelain materials and quartz surfaces. The Dekton® surface can recreate any type of material with a high level of quality. It is manufactures in large format (320 cm x 144 cm) and thin thicknesses (0.8 cm, 1.2 cm and 2 cm) and it as superior technical characteristics:
• High mechanical resistance
• Good resistance to fire and heat
• High scratch resistance
• High UV rays resistance
• High hydrolysis resistance
• Reduced water absorption
• Very good colour stability
• Very good dimensional stability
• High abrasion resistance
• High stain resistance
• Resistance to freezing and thawing
These superior technical characteristics are achieved thanks to the exclusive PST technology (Particle Sintering Technology), developed by the R&D of Cosentino Group. PST technology is an ultra-compaction process which makes Dekton® a totally revolutionary low-maintenance, long-lasting product with a multitude of applications.
