Designed in collaboration with architect and designer Daniel Germani, the two hues channel striking shades from nature's most remote corners
NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Dekton® by Cosentino, the world's most innovative and durable architectural surface, has announced the launch of its Dekon Chromica Collection, designed in collaboration with architect and designer Daniel Germani. Comprised of two deeply saturated hues, Baltic and Feroe, their sleek matte finish exudes drama and sophistication.
"Chromica is an exploration in color," Germani says. "In researching new hues that could be used with both organic and technical materials, I arrived at dark shades of blue and green -- two analogous colors that play well with each other and others in the color wheel. Both are timeless and modern -- selected to play well in traditional and contemporary spaces, both indoors and out. The process was very intuitive and working with Cosentino's research and development department made it a breeze."
The intense character of the Baltic blue and Feroe green colorways draw inspiration directly from nature's wildest and most remote places, reflecting Mother Nature's force and determination. This new offering meets previously unaddressed needs in residential, commercial and hospitality design. "We created the Chromica collection to meet growing trends that favor the use of solid blue and green tones in design," said Valentín Tijeras, Global Product and R&D Vice President for Cosentino Group. "Discreet and elegant, they blend perfectly into any style."
- Strong yet serene, Baltic emerges from the depths of the sea, from the struggle between light and darkness to master the nuances of the ocean.
- Inspired by the hidden and unexplored corners of nature, Feroe combines a subdued and sophisticated character. The result: A harmonious dark green hue to complement warm, fresh design palettes.
The beauty of the new Dekton Chromica collection is rivalled only by its unparalleled durability -- boasting superior resistance to UV rays, scratches, stains and sudden changes in temperature. Dekton is available in large-format slabs and in various thicknesses, opening up a large range of creative possibilities for architects and designers for commercial and residential projects alike.
