ASA-D2 by Daniel Germani Named Finalist for 2017 NYCxDESIGN Award
Freestanding modular outdoor kitchen recognized for outstanding global design.
NEW YORK — May 23, 2017 — ASA-D2 by Daniel Germani – manufactured by Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, the nation’s premier stainless outdoor kitchen manufacturer – has been selected as a finalist for the 2017 NYCxDESIGN Awards. The international award program honors outstanding products and talent across major areas of design such as architecture, interiors, furnishings, lighting and technology.
A contemporary, freestanding outdoor kitchen with a modular design, ASA-D2 is the result of a partnership between Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, Dekton by Cosentino and architect and designer Daniel Germani. The innovative outdoor kitchen was born out of Germani’s desire to create an eye-catching, “avante garde” piece of outdoor furniture equipped with kitchen capabilities.
“We are thrilled that ASA-D2 was chosen as a finalist for this prestigious design recognition,” said Mitch Slater, president of Danver Stainless Outdoor Kitchens, licensee of Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens. “The ASA-D2 collaboration truly showcases where the industry is headed in terms of innovating to deliver unique outdoor entertaining solutions that are not only at the forefront of design but that also perform beautifully in a diverse range of outdoor settings.”
Crafted using highly durable, weather-resistant materials, including a Dekton countertop and powder coated stainless steel cabinetry from Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, ASA-D2 is available in four finishes and comes equipped with a grill by Caliber Appliances. Convenient 360-degree functionality provides easy access to storage and shelving on both sides of the unit.
The NYCxDESIGN Awards were created by Interior Design magazine and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair to recognize exceptional product exhibited throughout NYCxDESIGN, a citywide celebration of design that takes place each May in New York City. A panel of 30 design luminaries will select the winners, who will be announced on May 20, 2017 at a ceremony held at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.

About Dekton® by Cosentino
Dekton ultra-compact surface is an innovative category of surfaces created with the objective of becoming a global leader in the world of architecture and design both for interior and exterior spaces.
Dekton is a sophisticated mixture of the raw materials that are used to manufacture glass, porcelain and quartz. The product is made using a proprietary process called Particle Sintering Technology (PST), an accelerated four-hour version of the change that rocks and stone undergo in nature when subjected to heat and pressure over thousands of years. The result: an ultra-compact surface with superior technical characteristics, including resistance to UV, scratches, stains, thermal shock, and very low water absorption.
Dekton can recreate any type of material with a high level of quality and is available in large format slabs, measuring 56” x 126”, and in three thicknesses: 0.8cm, 1.2cm and 2cm. Its resistance to thermal shock against heat, frost and thawing allows it to be used in any climate, offering potential for seamless design from indoor to outdoor spaces. Such unique characteristics and durability make Dekton ideal for an array of surface applications, including countertops, vanities, shower walls, flooring, decking, building facades, and many other architectural surfaces.
Dekton retails for $65-$130 per square foot, depending on thickness and color, at Cosentino Centers, kitchen and bath retailers and home improvement stores nationwide. For more information, please visit www.dekton.com/usa.
