MINIMAL is sky and ground. But it is also the horizon line that divides them. The idea behind MINIMAL is to create separate volumes but visibly tied each other by a horizontal line, which at the same time cut their surfaces giving the kitchen a three-dimensional look. This design act let to eliminate the vertical grooves and any handle giving to MINIMAL a sense of clearity and linearity.
To obtain the planned aesthetic effect, the horizontal groove run over all the surfaces, even on the columns.
The groove is not only an aesthetic element but it’s also functional and it let to create ‘false chests’ and doors with a cut effect.
MINIMAL is the only model with groove with a minimal height of 82,5 cm under top level, and this feature makes this model to be installed also inside ancient buildings where the windows are placed lower than the contemporary residences.
