Sophisticated Ocean-Inspired Kitchen Design


Sometimes it’s the subtle, carefully considered details that add true definition. Such is the case in this sophisticated ocean-inspired kitchen by Rina Cohen of RCI Designs.

Choosing to complement, rather than compete with, the spectacular coastal views and surrounds that formed a backdrop to the home, she opted for minimalist joinery in Briggs natural oak veneer and Polytec Feldspar Shimmer to form the foundation of the ocean-inspired  kitchen.

At first glance, the two-tone effect is striking yet simple, but a closer inspection exposes another level of detail — in the window splashback, the fish tank, the matt textured bar stools, the blue-green palette of the walk-through scullery and laundry, the raised dishwasher, the Koda Vibia pendant light and the downdraft extractor, specifically chosen to cater to the clients’ desire to eschew overhead cabinetry.

It is perhaps the island that captures the imagination the most, though. Intended to represent a forming wave, it combines a slab of natural Verde Fantastico velvet granite, featuring the colours of the ocean, suspended on a sensuous curve sculpted out of Staron in the colour Steel.

The solid surface arc serves to outline the “wave” while also softening the harder edges of the room, and the scullery entrance, adding a powerful sculptural element all its own. Meanwhile, high-quality integrated appliances and discreet chrome tapware and finishes balance the practical requirements of the zone, establishing it as a place of form and function.
