Complementary colours have never been so boldly put to work. Sharp lines and offset shapes integrate a concert of textures and finishes, to create a kitchen that cooks, dines and dazzles.
Expert joinery was required to produce the feature backing wall, which not only echoes great modernist architecture, but also conceals cupboards and drawers, a fridge and a freezer. Two wall-mounted V-ZUG ovens front the purple cabinetry, which lead, past golden storage sills, into a gleaming bulkhead – spotted with LED lights and weighted with a twin Qasair rangehood. A V-ZUG induction cooktop tops the magical island bench below. Purple veining in the New York marble is lit up from within, creating an atmospheric masterpiece, launching lines and light around the room. Essastone in Black Truffle extends around the marble for a dine-in option and so the cook has company. Matching Bone White essastone tops the adjacent bench and gives soft contrast to the gold Oliveri sink and polished brass Perrin & Rowe tapware. Swathes of culinary tech, storage and strutting space meet daring design in this truly avant-garde kitchen.
