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.

Salinas

Description

“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”: with these words Patricia Urquiola describes the inspiration source for Salinas, a kitchen based on an idea of modular structure that offers endless and sophisticated solutions, while maintaining its authentic, strong and linear design. The designer defines the matt black metal structure a “hidden machine”, with modular base units which, once matched, a fully functional composition. Doors and fronts, with recess for the handle, are made of light panels of different materials and colours: ranging from metal (zinc/brass/copper) to aluminium finishing, industrial glass, lacquers or textured concretes. Worktops are in matt ceramic, marble, lava stone Nerosicilia decorated in relief, with an exclusive design by Patricia Urquiola. The worktop is equipped with a modular track with accessories and with an integrated downdraft hood. There is also a “chopping board-table” in solid water-painted Olivato ash or oil-effect varnished Canaletto walnut, that slides to create more space for meal preparation, or can be also used as a snack top. A modular frame-structure, integrated in the equipped track, completes the worktop. It can be fitted with shelves, wall units, LED lighting bars, hanging bars. Salinas is flexible in its configurations which can be of a single material, a single colour or any combination of materials and colours in each element: a modular system that can be considered at the same time a “customised” kitchen. This product has been awarded the Wallpaper* Design Awards and EDIDA-Elle Deco International Design Award as Best Kitchen in 2015. In 2016 it has been awarded an honourable mention in the “Compasso D’oro ADI-Associazione per il Disegno Industriale”.
