- 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.

The Spanish world leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, the Cosentino Group has collaborated with the Monica Förster Design Studio, during Stockholm Design Week 2015. The first collaboration, Twilight is a collection of table accessories and outdoor candleholders, which are made of Dekton and will be presented in an exhibition at Bianchi Café & Cycles in Stockholm.
The Cosentino Group will be presenting the ‘House of Dekton’ project by designer Steffen Kehrle at diverse European shows this year:
BAU – Munich: 19-24 January 2015, Hall A4, Booth 301
SFF – Stockholm: 3-7 February 2015, Hall A42:16
Made Expo – Milan: 18-21 March 2015
Construmat – Barcelona: 18-22 May 2015
Using huge slab sizes, the remarkable house delivers a powerful experience of the ultra-compact Dekton surface.
Dekton is produced using advanced ‘Technology of Sintered Particles (TSP)’ and represents an innovation in surface design for high-end architecture and design projects.
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.
