kitchen components

This vision of a simple, yet many-faceted and functional kitchen with the capacity to amaze and with an evocative power: this is the kitchen of days gone by created by Alfredo Häberli. It is expressed in three basic components: a multifunctional island for contemporary use that encourages socialising, right from the start of food preparation; a large convivial table with benches and a column of modular elements for storing food and for built-in household appliances.

The materials, the warm, tactile finishes, the decoration created by the apparently casual succession of small, round depressions, the asymmetric interplay of the lines created by the placement of the modular containers, produce the warmth, the feeling of welcome and the pleasant ‘untidiness’ of a lived-in kitchen.
