Estivale kitchen by Key Cucine

October 2017
During Milan Design Week, the Estivale kitchen by Key Cucine, designed in collaboration with Benedini Associati, was presented in an enriched version with new materials and complementary features.
This contemporary project combines the large Estivale island with new modular shelving units; a large area of glass cabinets and wood panelling completes the full-height doors that close off the appliances and larder.
“The structure is built around a large central island with a dramatic black countertop made of Nero Picasso marble. The only visible presence, apart from the elegant surface, is a rectangular sink in the same marble and a hob that seems to emerge from this surface. The central island converses with the modular shelving, and the entire wall showcase area, with its hinged doors, hides all the equipment and appliances while also containing a large pantry with retractable sliding doors made of aluminium finished in antique satin Liquid Metal brass. The column cabinets are fitted with tempered glass shelves and have extractable components and internal LED lighting.” Warm detailing and oak panelling with a vintage texture, complete the ambience.
Key Cucine does an industrial production that enhances and personalises each single project with marked attention paid to contemporary design, quality and ecology. Always attentive to environmental themes on recycling and reutilisation, Key adopts new materials such as Ecologic Panel, derived from recycled paper, or Swanstone, eco-friendly composite product.

DAMN°64 Food presents products that are creating waves in the kitchen. Says Productivity editor Patrizia Coggiola about the Medium Dry trend:

"The interior design of the kitchen has gained a warm look. Gone is the minimalistic trend of bare stone slabs and metres-long brushed-steel surfaces. Now there’s a gentle hybrid blending, where natural wood contrasts with industrial black powdercoated metal profiles and lavish surfaces with textures that complement smooth white marble, or where traditional oiled-oak meets grey travertine stone, creating a tactile and immersive experience."
