Marble benchtops are OUT!
The fashion of using natural marble for benchtops is OUT. Whilst marble is an incredibly beautiful material, not everybody has the time to give it the love and maintenance that it really needs. Products like Dekton can now replicate the stunning look that marble brings to a space, without the hassle of maintenance.

This month, Cosentino Australia partnered with Rawsons Elite Appliances and BORA for three events which took place as part of the Tour Down Under, one of the premier events on the Adelaide calendar.
Dekton®, the ultra-compact surface by Cosentino Group, shows all its potential, versatility and infinite architectural and design possibilities at the “Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar”, a project that has already become an emblematic and broad-reaching project, for this revolutionary product, fruit of the innovative capacity of the multinational from Almeria. The Academy is conceived as high performance centre with the most advanced technology, maximum comfort and spectacular facilities in which Dekton® is a key constructive and unifying element through the centre.
This month, Cosentino Australia hosted three exclusive events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to celebrate the launch of its premium granite surface Sensa, and reveal the Naturals collection of the Dekton XGloss range.
