Feminine thinking

The classic taste of technical innovation

"I imagined a kitchen made of tactile, concrete and real materials. Able to create articulated compositions and different dimentions, but always with all the necessary tools ready for use".

Structure in matt black metal

Innovative, eco-friendly, tactile and highly customisable

It can be designed as monochromatic or in a mix of colours and materials. While the structure is fixed, it can be completed with panels combined in a wide range of finishes and replaceable over time. Just like a piece of clothing.

Wall units in coloured glass

When the choice is glass

There is no limit to the imagination: glass available is tinted or ribbed or transparent frosted.

Geometric materials

Material surplus in the kitchen

The sink is made in natural stone. Worktops are in matte ceramic, marble, stone or natural Sicilian lava stone. The decoration is geometric, simple and modular.

Technical trench with accessories

The technical aspect is perfectly hidden

Special containers are placed in the technical trench to store a wide variey of tools and equipment, but also to hide the plumbing and electrical components.

Slidable snack table

A moving satellite

Fixed, removable or sliding, the table is attractive and functional.

Salinas is the beach of my childhood, a long sandy beach with dunes along the Bay of Biscay, Asturias, with huge, crashing waves and intense colours. The kitchen in my grandfather’s house, which commanded a view of that very beach, brings back fond memories of those moments.

Description

All materials of this kitchen have been carefully selected and are highly eco-sustainable. It consists of a tubular metal structure made of modules which, once matched, create a fully functional composition. The structure offers: - two different heights: suspended or floor-mounted for under-mounted appliances; - doors with an aluminium frame and decorated with various materials: PaperStone®, wood, lacquers; - worktops in ceramic, decorated lava or Lasermat available in various colours; - overtop structure in tubular metal where ladles hangers, shelves, LED lights can be placed; - big stone sink (of exclusive design); - solid wood peninsula tables which can be either fixed, pull-out or slidable, for snack use. The project is enriched with a trench providing useful storage space for small accessories and with metal shelves with integrated LED lights. In 2015 wall units are added to the gutter-shaped element, then new materials for doors (metals, concrete, glass) and tall units with doors similar to base units and handle compatible with big electrical appliances too. The tall units are equipped with big open-faced elements, built-in ovens, suspended drawer units in finishing or melamine-coated, integrated LED bar lights. This product has been awarded the 2015 Wallpaper* Design Awards and 2015 EDIDA as Best Kitchen. In 2016 it has been awarded an honourable mention in the “Compasso D’oro ADI”.
