Dekton Surfaces by Cosentino was chosen to provide the bar area surfacing for a newly redecorated ICE Café, Suffolk.
Cosentino’s ultra-compacted surfacing is made of up to 80% recycled materials and, the brand claims, is of the highest quality.
It boasts a number of features that make it extremely long-lasting, such as high resistance to UV rays, scratches, stains and thermal shock, as well as very low water absorption.
The company says it is ideal for a number of functions, indoors and out, not least façades, paving, cladding, worktops and flooring.
The installation at ICE Café sees two Dekton surfaces used: the Trilium and the Radium.
The former comprises colours inspired by volcanic rock, while Radium is a sheet of rusted, acid-washed steel.
Richard Hibbert, managing director at Kitchen Studio KSL Sudbury, who supplied the designs, commented: “We have partnered with ICE cook school for a few amazing projects over the last couple of years, and the chance to work with them on their exciting Ice Cafe project was too good to miss.
“Most of the fixtures and fittings are made from recycled or reclaimed materials, so Dekton was the perfect surface choice for the bar top, as its Trilium and Radium options are made from 80% recycled content, taken from the surface’s own production process.
“It has been so well finished by Marchetti Stone, and we now love visiting for the amazing food and interior setting.”
ICE Café, the brainchild of ICE Cookery School owners John and Lou Jackaman, is known for its quirky interior and daytime menu including gluten-free and vegan options.
Its wood and metal features give the interior design an industrial feel.
