For this new project by Antonio Citterio, Arclinea starts with the essence, with the basic principles of the kitchen, reworked: new steel technology and natural wood cutting. The extraordinary result lies in the link between these basic principles, which show something absolutely original: new direction for interior design, new direction for kitchen furnishings, through unprecedented combinations of materials and colours.
Principia teams a grained wood in a “rough” finish with stainless steel in the innovative colours generated with the PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) technological process.
Cosy and warm, but also very rational, this Principia kitchen features fossil oak wood as its main player. The central work area has base units with doors in wood and handles with insert in black PVD steel, worktop with drip guard in very thick Idra Brown unpolished marble housing sink in Gun Metal steel, induc ion hob, worktop waste bin, sliding grids in PaperStone® and wooden chopping boards. Above the worktops, the open wall units in wood and exclusive Arclinea Lighting Shelf and Mensolinea shelf play important functional roles: from focused illumination to fume extraction, through to orderly storage of small everyday objects, thanks to their sliding accessories in wood and ceramic. On the right, the straight wall of tall units houses the refrigerators, ovens and, in the corner, the WIC, the ‘Walk in Closet’ unit with internal wooden finish and motion sensor lighting. On the left, the big Era peninsula dinner table, perfect for socialising, with edges in shaped solid wood.
