Dekton® by Cosentino is a collection of ultra-compact surface designs, lauded for its wide range, quality and versatility. Materialised after 22,000 hours of research and development, Dekton® consists of raw materials used to manufacture glass, porcelain materials and quartz surfaces.
The ingredients mix ensure that the final products possess noteworthy achievements, including high mechanical resistance, good resistance to fire and heat, high scratch resistance and colour stability. Manufactured in maximised format (320cm x 144cm) and minimal thickness (0.8cm, 1.2cm and 2cm), the versatile surface allows multiple applications such as walls, kitchen counter tops, toilet surfaces and even creative installations – acclaimed architect, Daniel Libeskind used Dekton® in his sculptural installation at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale.
The latest Dekton® update welcomes two new colours, Keon and Keyla, to the Tech and Natural collection respectively.

Inspired by the materiality of concrete, the colour of Keon embodies the natural appearance of concrete. The surface is a new addition to the Tech Collection, which is known for its industrial aesthetic.
Keyla takes after the appearance functionality of dark, natural Spanish stone. When utilised in large quantity, the dark characteristic and delicate pattern creates a luxurious and timeless ambience. Keyla belongs to the Natural collection, a series devoted to emulate the best of natural materials.
Keon and Keyla can be viewed at Cosentino City Singapore, 34/35 Duxton Road, at the end of June 2015.
