“Food should please the eye first, and then the stomach.” This is how Johann Wolfgang von Goethe saw it. And that is how we see it today as well. We also try to design the space in which we cook and eat in such a way that we happily prepare food, too. This is where you can do this and remain together with your guests while cooking.
A simple line restrained along the oak floorboards. Wide shadow gaps discreetly highlight the furniture body and stretch it gently. The super matt lacquering gives warmth to the simplicity. Precisely inlaid, the filigree strip in brass makes the body appear elegant and solid at the same time – one inevitably wants to reach out to this stable edge.
The solid wooden drawers behind the front panels surprise. As does the pull-out coffee sideboard, which reveals a noble mirror world when opened. Negresco: after being finely cut, this stone reveals the play of its delicate grain, enlivening the room.
Four natural materials join here: wood, brass, stone – and light. The light rail draws attention to this floor-to-ceiling cooking object, assisted by indirect lighting elements. The aircraft fittings of the Bora kitchen appliances and the slim neck of the tap will be touched again and again with pleasure.
