Cosentino’s latest collection of high-performing, sustainable surfaces for residential and commercial applications is inspired by the birthplace of civilisation and the city of love — Rome. Created in collaboration with Argentinian designer Daniel Germani, Pietra Kode is based on three classic Italian stones — Vicenza stone, Travertine marble and Ceppo di Gré — and the great architecture of the beautiful Italian city.
“For this collection, I spent a lot of time decoding each stone’s history in Italian architecture and re-imagined them in a contemporary design with all of the benefits of Dekton,” says Daniel Germani. “Pietra Kode is a collection that showcases luxury in the small, understated details. It’s designed with the future in mind and complements any space in a way that won’t go out of style.”
The collection includes seven Dekton surfaces that add richness, texture and timeless beauty to any space, but are also high-functioning and environmentally friendly.
Vicenza stone, a material used to build villas and palaces by Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio during the Cinquecento period, inspired four Pietra Kode colours: Nebbia, Avorio, Grigio and Grafite. Travertine marble led to Sabbia and Marmorio, two colours with a rustic, natural aesthetic, rich textures and eye-catching patterns. Ceppo di Gré, with its distinctive blue-grey palette, makes up Pietra Kode’s Ceppo and has a pebbled pattern and an oceanic feel.
Pietra Kode is not only defined by its beauty but also its sustainability properties. With a 100% offset of CO2 emissions, the life cycle of Dekton is carbon neutral, making it the only cradle to grave carbon neutral surface in the world. With its abrasion, scratch, stain, water and fire resistance, Pietra Kode can be specified for exterior cladding, in wet areas and for flooring, as well as interior applications. Like all Dekton, Pietra Kode colours come with a 25-year warranty.
