Dekton® Pietra Kode: Reimagining classic stones into contemporary beauty

Cosentino Group, the global leader in producing and distributing innovative and sustainable surfaces for architecture and design, introduces a new high-performance, ultra-compact stone collection to Australia: Dekton® Pietra Kode, the vision of renowned designer and architect Daniel Germani.

Pietra Kode reinterprets the timeless beauty of three classic Italian stones: Vicenza, Travertine and Ceppo di Gré.

Each of these antique natural stones is decoded and then re coded within three Dekton® concrete series, enhancing their properties and the many possibilities for architecture and design.

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® surface allows the collection to be used in a virtually limitless range of indoor and outdoor applications.

Pietra Kode marks the third collection developed together with designer and architect Daniel Germani. While Germani’s previous “Industrial” and “Chromica” collections for the brand have often had an industrial bent, 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. “For this collection, I spent a lot of time decoding each stone’s history in Italian architecture and reimagining them in a contemporary design with all of the benefits of Dekton,” said Daniel Germani. “Pietra Kode is a collection that showcases luxury in the small, understated details. It’s designed with the future in mind and compliments any space in a way that won’t go out of style.”

The VICENZA KODE SERIES has 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.

The 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. Two elegant designs are full of nuances reminiscent of the sobriety of classic style.

The fourth in the series, 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.
