Cosentino Group has 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.
“This latest collaboration has been three years in the making and marks the third collection we've developed with our longtime friend and partner Daniel Germani,” said Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America and EVP of Global Sales. “We are excited to officially launch Pietra Kode – a timeless collection that epitomizes Italian architecture and design, reimagined with the sustainable and durability benefits only found in Dekton. It has been a highly anticipated launch by our clients, and we look forward to seeing their design visions come to life.”
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.
“For this collection, I spent a lot of time decoding each stone’s history in Italian architecture and reimagined them in a contemporary design with all of the benefits of Dekton,” said Daniel Germani. “Pietra Kode is a collection that showcases luxury in the small, understated details. It’s designed with an eye on the future. Timeless colors are designed to interact with each other. Pietra Kode is a versatile tool in the hands of architects and creatives alike. Facades, flooring, bathrooms, kitchens, furniture and many more applications come to life through Dekton’s unmatched performance.”
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.
Nebbia’s fine-grained white creamy base dotted with warm taupe accents is reminiscent of the timeless beauty of Palladian architecture.
Avorio features light beige hues in an extremely natural finish. Inspired by Pietra di Vicenza Avorio, the beauty of this stone is characterized by the presence of fossil shells that add depth and complexity in a very timeless way.
Grigio is inspired by the texture of Grigio Alpi and boasts gray shades with warm nuances of browns and light yellows. This versatile color blends perfectly with creams, woods and taupe colors.
Grafite combines a mix of black and gray scattered with whitish and reddish cloud-like patches, channeling the texture of dark, fine-grained limestone.
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.
Sabbia reinterprets Italian Travertine, crosscut, creating beautiful clouds and veins that flow through the pieces in a disorderly and colorful way.
Marmorio is a take on the Travertine linear cut and takes cues from Travertino Navona in its coloring and structure. Its porous striped design gives an elegant, bright and lightweight look to any design.
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.
Ceppo embraces the essence and distinctive structure of Ceppo di Gré stone. The unmistakable pebbled pattern is ideal for both indoors and outdoors, with a timeless design ideal for classic, contemporary, or industrial aesthetics.
