Beyond the Wall

Almeria, Spain


Beyond The Wall, located at Cosentino’s world headquarters in Almeria, Spain, is a remarkable result of the ongoing collaboration between Libeskind Design and Cosentino Group. A temporary version of this sculpture was showcased in Milan’s Statale University during Milan’s Design Week 2013.

Based on the infinite possibilities of the spiral, Beyond the Wall is a unique structure and is the first to be created using Dekton® by Cosentino. It is not a traditional spiral with a single center and axis, but a contemporary spiral which opens a plurality of directions along many different trajectories; a polycentric spiral, propulsively twisting to a dramatic zenith. Beyond the Wall shows how this ultracompact material can succeed in cladding a contemporary and complex architectural facade.

In this final version Dekton® surfaces are employed in all exterior facades, interior walls and in all floors. The whitest finish of Dekton®, Zenith, is the chosen range for the facades and walls, in contrast with the perfect black colour of the Sirius finish, chosen for the floors of the impressive 8,5 meter high polycentric spiral.
