New Dekton Aura bookmatched

Dekton by Cosentino, an ultra-compact sintered surface made from glass, porcelain and quartz that hit the U.S. market in 2014, now has five additional colors to choose from. The first new color introductions since the launch of the material, which is suitable for both interior and exterior uses, including countertops,vanities, wet walls/showers, flooring and cladding, now comes in a total of 15 colors and patterns. The flagship color in the new launch is the company’s Aura product, which has the look of Calcatta marble, with large-scale grey veining on a white background. Calcatta marble and products that mimic the material is showing an increase in design interest in the U.S. market, states the company. And the claim is backed up by a variety of other products that have recently come out or are being released now. Additionally, for the first time, the Aura pattern repeats symmetrically, making bookmatching a possibility with the product (see photo).

In additiono to the Aura color, the other new hues are Edora, Irok, Kairos and Vegha. Edora is uniform in neutral color but has some delicate undulating textures for a natural look. Irok has thin, delicate veining and subtle moment with creamy tones that give it a limestone appearance. Kairos is another marble-like variant that has a soft white background and pale grey striations that create a look of Italian Carrera marble. Lastly, Vegha is a “stormy” yet neutral taupe, inspired b the formations of limestone and sandstone.

Dekton is made using a proprietary process called “particle sintering technology” or PST that uses heat and pressure to provide the material with UV resistance for color stability, high strength, and resistance to impacts, scratching and abrasion, as well as low water absorption and thermal shock resistance.

The new colors will be available in large format slabs of 56 by 126 in. and in three thicknesses: 0.8cm, 1.2cm and 2cm.
