What’s cooking up a trendy storm in today’s kitchens? We scoured international kitchen shows and found these hot kitchen features that would elevate the cookspace to the next level.
Curved lines without handles, integrated sinks and cooktop, and a breakfast bar made of HI-MACS®solid surface are the central elements in the design of the new Pedini Artika kitchen. Slated to be launched in the IMM 2017, the Artika concept marries simplicity with efficiency featuring a slender-bodied solution, with enveloping and familiar forms, defined not only by the countertop itself, but also by the drawers and doors in the units that blend into the profile, as though sculpted by the action of wind or water.
ART OF COOKING
Designed by Makio Hasuike & Co for Aran Cucine, Sipario redefines the kitchen environment into a place where people share and enjoy each other’s company. “Like in a theatrical representation the art of cooking is a performance. The stage is imposing, compact, equipped for preparation and cooking,” the designer remarks. This kitchen features a wall cabinet with glass shelves and integrated lighting and comes complete withtall units and a kitchen island. Built-in appliances also create a compact kind of design, respecting the double depth of the tall units. Sipario was displayed at last year’s Eurocucina and was presented in Fenix grey, with a stainless steel worktop.
For small space living, Officine Gullo presents their new full kitchen composition where everything you ever need are fitted into one space. Featuring an elegant light beige palette and brass finishes, perimeter rods and mahogany handles complete the modern classic appeal of this set. The leaves and chests of drawers come with hinges and sliding guides, while the built-in pantry is done up in solid brass finish. Handmade closing mechanisms have also been integrated. To make things more convenient, there is also a combined fridge-freezer concealed within the separate armoire-like storage space.
