Dekton Ukiyo, a new textured collection by Cosentino, features linear fluting and offers livable luxury with the durability of Dekton. Created in collaboration with internationally recognized interior and product designer Claudia Afshar, the collection is available in ready-to-install fluted tiles, one of the first offerings of its kind in the industry. Its textures bring distinctive depth and dimension to any space, residential or commercial.
Dekton Ukiyo is inspired by Japanese and contemporary design and celebrates the art of minimalism. Ukiyo means to “live in the moment,” and the Dekton collection is designed to awaken the senses and evoke a feeling of wellness by achieving a beautiful, calm state in the space. It embodies a rich palette, showcasing geometric yet smooth structure that creates harmonious designs both inside and outside.
To launch Ukiyo, Afshar hand-selected five existing Dekton colourways — Bromo, Kreta, Nacre, Umber and Rem — to provide a comprehensive colour palette that works independently and together.
Bromo offers a dark grey shade, inspired by homogeneous metamorphic rocks such as slate. Subtle, faded graphics, a carefully-created texture and a natural aesthetic define this evocative colour, perfect for any type of environment.
Kreta is inspired by classic cement floors, with calm movement. The design is even and controlled, although it provides darker or lighter areas depending on the density of the pattern. Its matte texture and grey tone combine with any type of material and make it suitable for diverse applications.
Nacre boasts movement that engages all senses — the trowel marks that bring the color to life, the subtle interplay of light and shadow that accompanies every inch of the design. The touch delights with a silky finish as the fingers run over the different reliefs and scattered gradients. A pleasure for its high decorative and emotional value.
Umber features a timeless, rebellious colour with its own personality and a special charisma. The terracotta is warm and very attached to the Earth and closely connected to nature.
Rem provides intricate design, with brown and grey veining and hints of gold. Its fine veining under a subtle grain offers the ultimate in natural sensitivity.
Designed especially for vertical applications, ranging from facades and fireplaces to custom furniture, Dekton Ukiyo will be available in matte finish and two fluting options: GV2 with groves set 25 mm apart and measure 5mm wide and 3 mm deep; and GV3 with groves set 11 mm apart and are 4mm wide and deep. Both will come in tile size 17.7 inches by 118 inches.
The innovative surface is a sophisticated mixture of minerals made with Sinterized Particle Technology (TSP), and a unique ultra-compaction press process. Its unique set of superior technical properties, such as resistance to UV rays, scratches, stains and thermal shock and very low water absorption, make Dekton the perfect surface for a wide range of applications, both indoors and outdoors.
Dekton products are full life cycle carbon neutral and were selected for the collection due to their sustainable properties and high-performance capabilities. As part of Cosentino’s commitment to sustainability and a circular economic model, Dekton colours incorporate 15 to 85 per cent recycled materials from the product’s own manufacturing process.
