As a result of this commitment, the Cosentino Group has collaborated in the construction and decoration of the Pavilion, designed by the b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos architecture studio, by offering its materials, in particular its ultra-compact surface Dekton®.  Cosentino provided almost 1,000m2 of this innovative material for various uses and in different sizes and finishes, as well as basins made from its leading Silestone® surface.

Visitors to Spain’s Pavilion had the chance to appreciate the Dekton® flooring in the public area, exhibition space, multi-purpose room, vegetable garden, and in the workshop and restaurant areas.  It was also used for worktops (a tapas bar counter, the counter of the bar of the auditorium and the counter of the bar in the VIP area) as well as for the staircase leading to the restaurant on the second floor.

Many of these locations will be the main focus areas of the Pavilion during the days to mark the Week of Spain that will host various activities such as “Innovation and Culinary Excellence” – offered by the Basque Culinary Center and Acción Cultural Española – bringing to Milan some of Spain’s most internationally renowned chefs.

Cosentino also participated with one of the most attractive and innovative interior design ideas of the Pavilion: the recreation of the tomato genome on Dekton® slabs used for the flooring in the exhibition space and public areas on the ground floor.

The architecture studio b720 selected 2cm Dekton® slabs in the colour Zenith to help them achieve this design milestone, and etched onto them – using an inkjet printing technique – the DNA sequence in letters as well as a drawing of a tomato in various shades of grey.  This is made possible as Dekton® allows for total customisation of designs, making it the perfect partner for designers and architects around the world.  The cutting-edge inkjet technology – unique in the stone industry – can be used to print any design required by professionals.



The Cosentino Group Cooperates with the Spain Pavilion in the 2015 Milan Expo

  •  The multinational company has become a key partner collaborating in the construction and supply of materials for the Spain Pavilion, designed by Fermín Vázquez’s b720 studio.
  • Cosentino has supplied almost 1,000m2 of its Dekton® ultra compact surface in different sizes and finishes, as well as bathroom basins manufactured using its quartz surface Silestone®.
  • One of the most appealing proposals in the Pavilion will be the recreation of the tomato genome in Dekton® slabs, using inkjet printing technology, which will be applied as flooring in the public exhibition areas.

A global leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, The Cosentino Group, has become the first collaborating company for the Spain Pavilion in the 2015 Milan Expo which will be officially opened on 1 May. This cooperation has come about through the agreement reached with Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), the public body responsible for managing Spain’s presence in Universal and International Expositions.

Last year, the world leader in the production of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, the Cosentino Group launched Dekton®; a surface material whose dimensions are huge, and not only with respect to slab sizes. “The material’s many outstanding qualities offer both architects and interior designers totally new options, and it is these options we want to showcase with the ‘House of Dekton’”, says designer Steffen Kehrle. Featuring outstanding aesthetics, the House of Dekton combines the many different possible applications of Dekton. The 14-sided house is made entirely of Dekton: floors, walls, roof, seating and a corresponding 14-sided table as the central element. Flexibility is not only demonstrated in the material itself but also in the central table that is used as a counter or meeting point: Dekton kits containing screwdrivers, lighters and aggressive cleaning agents are supplied so that visitors can test the surface’s outstanding resilience for themselves. The material’s properties are also communicated via icons engraved in the wall and floor panels, removing the need for additional information boards.
