It seems that modern kitchens are a bit all equal, and that now there's nothing else to invent, in terms of design and technology, finishes and colors. But is this really true? Let's see some examples of models with very special, particularly neat and elegant modern style design.

New kitchens from Koelnmesse 2013

Schiffini. Cinqueterre titanium Since Eurocucina will be back in Milan next year, kitchens operators have known latest news thanks to the last appointment Living Kitchen, during Koelnmesse 2013.

There you could not miss the contribution of a leading company in the international market, Schiffini , emblem of the best Made in Italy in terms of design and technology, a winning combination for the Italian brand.

In the international showcase of last January the historic brand presented, as well as the legendary Cinqueterre kitchen, now in titanium version, the two models Pampa and Mesa, design Alfredo Häberli.

Cinqueterre is the emblem of the most typical Schiffini production: elegance and precision. Fruit of the creative mind of Vico Magistretti, it is entirely made of aluminum, first among all the others in this particular type of finish.

The titanium finishing represents a technological evolution, as well as an aesthetic evolution, because it exploits the capabilities of the anodization process for making the same finish, applied to a wave shaped surface, unalterable over time.

Mesa represents the idea of the kitchen Häberli has in his mind: a cozy and real-life kitchen. In addition to the large table with benches, the concept is based on a multipurpose structure with central island, which invites everybody to the user-friendliness and multiple use during food preparation.

Schiffini. Mesa. The formal disorder, the wavy decoration of surfaces, the asymmetry of the functional elements also from the point of view of materials (very effective is the contrast between the two wood and steel finishes), reveal, as a matter of fact, a great attention to functionality.

The kitchen is the soul of the house. This is the concept around which the activity of Häberli as a designer develops, and he designs Pampa, made entirely of wood and considered the natural evolution of Mesa. The most important feature of the design of this kitchen is the extreme compactness in both volumes and surfaces.

Even the handle is solved by an effective intuition : an incision on the surface seems to cause a separation of a small band of material which, rising, becomes a handle.

Nothing more. A simple processing on a surface, then bi-dimensional, technically demanding, actually results in a three-dimensional effect that breaks the monotony of the surface itself, creating a play of light and shade on the wood.

Modern kitchen always new. Just change the handle

SieMatic. S3 About handles, we mark the new kitchen S3 by SieMatic , a striking design at a great value. That is, who said that a beautiful and quality kitchen should be necessarily expensive?

The design of this new SieMatic product is innovative and at the same time free to be interpreted according to taste even after some time from the first purchase. And here we return to the handles.

The components are made of aluminum in seven different colors, and they can be mixed and replaced at will, to give different impressions of the composition: discrete or dynamic, casual and expressive. SieMatic. S3

So just have a little fantasy, clear ideas about the kind of impact you want to get, and you can proceed by combining different colour situations of lacquered doors and different combinations of handles, in harmony or contrast.

And then you could change them again. You will have your kitchen, which will cost a lot less than you think. Just say it is not good news these days ...
