Cosentino once again revolutionises its sector with the launch of Ukiyo, the new collection of the ultra-compact Dekton® stone. Ukiyo (Japanese u-key-yoen), presents a new conception of chromatic textures that offers two possibilities of linear and geometric grooves. Created in collaboration with product and interior designer Claudia Afshar, the collection is available in ready-to-install grooved slabs, a pioneering solution in the industry.
Dekton® Ukiyo is inspired by Japanese and contemporary design, celebrating the art of minimalism and acceptance of the present. Ukiyo means “living in the moment”, and the Dekton® collection is designed to awaken the senses, and evoke a sense of well-being by achieving a state of calm in its applications. This is made possible through a rich chromatic palette with a geometric structure, which creates harmonious designs both indoors and outdoors. Its textures bring a distinctive depth and dimension to any space, whether residential or commercial.
“Playing with texture is timeless and is very important in all materials, not just fabrics. I have always been inspired by materials found in nature, and to make the spaces I design as comfortable, warm and authentic as possible. Ukiyo brings calm and elegant simplicity, and the colour combinations and fluting are romantic, but also contemporary and masculine for balance,” says Claudia Afshar.
Specially designed for vertical cladding applications, Dekton® Ukiyo is available in a matt finish and in two groove options: GV2 with 25mm grooves, a 5mm wide gap and 3mm deep; and GV3 with 11mm grooves, and a 4mm gap and depth. Both structures come in panels with a dimension of 450mm wide and 3000mm long. For the launch of Ukiyo, Afshar personally selected five existing colours from the Dekton® portfolio: Bromo, Kreta, Nacre, Umber and Rem, thus providing a complete colour palette to work independently and together.
