Not so long ago, we featured the Tower Kitchen designed by Philippe Starck for Warendorf. With this kitchen collection the German manufacturer has once again sought to collaborate with a high profile designer, this time in the guise of world renowned Dutch designer and master craftsman Piet Boon. His collection consists of three different kitchen designs, all of which bring a sense of subdued luxury to the heart of the home.
Original is a kitchen that is functional and timeless, comfortable and pure, distinctive and harmonious. It demonstrates the effect that can be created by combining natural materials with sophisticated surfaces. Stockholm on the other hand is inspired by a variety of Scandinavian design influences, whilst London, with its conspicuously minimalist design, highlights the kitchen’s role as a living space and pushes its functional role into the background.
Piet Boon’s design philosophy is best seen in the use of a natural and subtle palette of subdued colours and materials, which marry authenticity with harmony and timelessness. He says: “Kitchens are the heart of the home, so we design them with passion. Renowned kitchen manufacturer Warendorf has been entrusted with the production of our high quality, functional kitchen designs, which are as much an expression of traditional values and the craftsman’s skill.”
Do you have a favourite kitchen out of these three? Or do you prefer the Tower kitchen by Philippe Starck?
With the world around us becoming more and more urbane with each passing day, the heart often longs for simpler times and some country-style goodness. Crafted with ingenious style and exclusive modularity by Marchi, Doria is a kitchen that effortlessly blends timeless rustic beauty with the inimitable allure of Mediterranean design. The many intricate details of Doria bring together a distinct artisanal touch, a captivating modular country-style approach, and of course accents, hues and finishes that evoke images of a lazy summer evening in an exotic Mediterranean retreat.
Despite its country style and rustic aesthetics, Doria does not cut back on comfort and modern functionality. Instead features such as the refrigerator and cooking hood are elegantly concealed by painted cabinets to ensure that they do not disturb the wonderful narrative. Stone sinks, earthenware pots and other subtle touches such as the rod for hanging utensils ensure that your kitchen becomes a portal that takes you back in time to a colorful countryside somewhere in the Mediterranean.
