Cosentino Group, the Spanish producer and distributer of innovative and sustainable surfaces for the world of architecture and design, introduced a new high-performance, ultra-compact stone collection: Dekton® Pietra Kode, the vision of renowned designer and architect Daniel Germani.
Pietra Kode reinterprets the timeless beauty of three classic Italian stones: Vicenza, Travertine and Ceppo di Gré. Each of these antique natural stones is decoded and then recoded into Dekton, enhancing their properties and the many possibilities for architecture and design. Each color breathes contemporary elegance into the design, with the rich shades and textures creating a sensory experience beyond what the eye can see. The carbon-neutral Dekton surface allows the collection to be used in a virtually limitless range of indoor and outdoor applications.
While Germani’s previous collections for the brand have often had an industrial bent, the seven hues that make up Pietra Kode channel the influence of Pietra di Vicenza, Travertine, and Lombardia’s iconic Ceppo di Gré on Italian architecture over the centuries.
Vicenza Kode: Four warm and versatile colors that reinterpret the code of classic Pietra di Vicenza. With neutral tones reminiscent of the earth and rich design that flows onto the edges, all coexist in perfect harmony and complement cream, wood, and taupe palettes. Vicenza Kode includes Nebbia, Avorio, Grigio and Grafite.
Travertine Kode reinvents Travertino. Found in vast deposits by the ancient Romans in the city of Tibur thousands of years ago, this stone was used throughout history and helped build the Roman Empire. Over the centuries this beautiful limestone inspired countless architects and artists. One can find it in buildings like the Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the Vatican. Travertine Kode includes Sabbia and Marmorio.
Ceppo Kode reinterprets the beauty of Ceppo di Gré. Often used in architecture in the Lombardia region of Italy, Ceppo is an excellent stone to design spaces that inspire us and connect us with nature. Brutalist in its nature, this stone makes a statement anywhere. Like Vicenza Kode, Ceppo Kode also features design along the edges, making it ideal for revealing applications.
