Introducing Italian stones of yester year recoded by DEKTON for tomorrow's architecture

Cosentino’s Dekton® Pietra Kode, developed in collaboration with designer and architect Daniel Germani, reinterprets the timeless beauty of three classic stones: Vicenza stone, Travertine marble and Ceppo di Gré Natural.

Each colour 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® ultra-compact stones allow the collection to be used in a virtually limitless range of indoor and outdoor applications for residential and commercial spaces.

The global leader in producing and distributing innovative and sustainable surfaces, Pietra Kode marks the third collection for the Cosentino Group developed together with esteemed Argentinian designer Daniel Germani.

While Germani’s previous “Industrial” and “Chromica” collections for the brand have been a nod to the industrial style, the seven hues that make up Pietra Kode channel the influence of Vicenza stone, travertine, and Milan’s iconic Ceppo di Gré stone on Italian architecture over the centuries.

The moniker Pietra Kode finds its origins in the rich cultural and historical heritage of Italy. It combines the Italian word for stone, “pietra,” with a contemporary nod to the technology it employs, “kode.”

This product range draws inspiration from the designs of renowned Italian Renaissance architects, such as Andrea Palladio, and reflects Germani’s enduring passion for all things Italian.


VICENZA KODE SERIES is made up of four warm and versatile colours that reinterpret the code of classic Vicenza stone. 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.

  • VK01 Nebbia is inspired by the texture of Grigio Alpi, with a fine-grained white creamy base dotted with warm taupe hues.
  • VK02 Avorio features a light beige shade in an extremely natural finish inspired by the eponymous Avorio stone, an Italian material characterised by the presence of fossil shells.
  • VK03 Grigio draws its inspiration from Grigio Alpi, made popular by the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, who used it in his villas and palaces in the Veneto region. Boasting a grey colour scheme and warm nuances, it blends perfectly with creams, woods and taupe colours.
  • VK04 Grafite combines a mix of black and grey interspersed with whitish and reddish cloud-like patches, channelling the texture of dark, fine-grained limestones

TRAVERTINE KODE SERIES recodes the stone out of which Rome was built into a new technological vision of the material that made classical art shine and inspired Renaissance architecture. The two elegant designs are full of nuances reminiscent of the sobriety of classic style.

  • TK05 Sabbia reinterprets Italian Travertine, cut with a vein in its thread that flows through the pieces in a disorderly and colourful way making it perfect for rustic or natural environments.
  • TK06 Marmorio takes cues from Travertino Navona, the quintessential Roman stone. Its porous striped structure gives an elegant, bright and lightweight look to any design.

CEPPO KODE SERIES reinterprets the beauty of the Ceppo di Gré stone, often used in architecture in Milan, to design spaces that inspire us and connect us with nature. Like Vicenza Kode, Ceppo Kode also features design along the edges making it ideal for revealing applications.

  • CK07 Ceppo the distinctive blue-grey multiform structure of the Italian Ceppo di Gré stone inspires this unique colour. An unmistakable pebbled pattern that is ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications and whose timeless design makes it a perfect choice for a classic or modern look.
