|Diesel Social Kitchen
|Sleek Italian kitchen designer Scavolini and fashion brand Diesel have teamed up to create something
called the "Social Kitchen". The result is a marriage of vintage and raw looking industrial
details to create ultramodern kitchens for the cool set.
According to the collaborators the collection is “based on the idea that the kitchen should become
not just a room in which to cook and eat, but a space for gathering and relaxation… With comfort
in mind the furniture pieces are finished in vintage materials.” Glass, steel, concrete and weathered
wood are the principle components used.
|Thanks to Diesel’s visibility with the fashion client around the world, and Scavolini’s much admired
aesthetic in the design world, this collaboration is an opportunity to reach a broader audience
for both companies and share their creative vision. available at: www.scavolini.us

|Designed by Giancarlo Vegni, the line brings
Italian luxury into the kitchen. The custom
cabinetry is produced in Florence by master
artisans using a large, single piece of solid,
mature chestnut timber. Each carefully
selected piece is seasoned and
weathered before undergoing the multiple
steps of production. Only a few numbered,
signed models are made by hand each
year. Distinctive and everlasting, 100%
Wood is emblematic of Effeti’s passion
for perfection, great attention to detail
and exceptional craftsmanship.

|Vela is pure technology, but with discretion, a
certainty at the centre of a home. With Vela,
unity is a keynote in the design of surfaces. It’s
all there in the continuity of its panels, in the
delicate pattern of its dividing lines.
Doors are a mere 12 mm thick, slim to the point
of imperceptibility. Technology is cutting edge
but discreet and includes an intriguing new
mechanism that allows doors to swing open. In
the new version of the collection, handles have
become a graphic feature emphasizing the
horizontal lines of the surfaces and underlining
the horizontal lines of the worktops.
|Countertops present slender, overlapping
lines that conceal the manufacturing
technology. As thin blades, low thickness
aluminium shelves succeed in giving to the
stand out as a revolutionary project and
then as a reference for the development
of following models. Wood panelling coats
the vertical surfaces.
PaneIing materials include Eucalyptus
essence, skillfully crafted with a horizontal
grain, and a new selection of tough and
tactile high- pressure laminates.

|new logica system
designed by: Valcucine
|Everything on hand, everything tidy in an instant.
Valcucine has always focused on satisfying its customers’ requirements and has painstakingly
researched into the use of traditional kitchens to this aim. This has resulted in the perfection of
a few aspects that improve the interaction of Man with the whole kitchen “system”.
After having revolutionised ergonomics by presenting the Logica System in 1996, with its 80 cm
depth and equipped back section, removable jumbo drawers and wall units with Ala and
Aerius lift-up doors, and pursuant to the back-to-wall version, Valcucine is now presenting
the new equipped back panel in the island version.
The back panel is capable of containing and concealing, when necessary, all the kitchen
equipment: the dish-drainer, weighing scales, small appliances, removable cooking receptacles,
bottle-racks, power sockets, a monitor, kitchen roll holders, the tap, hooks for utensils and even
a cooker hood.
The island version of New Logica System can be used to divide the space. The volume of the
back panel creates a partition between the kitchen and the dining or living room area that
draws intimate spaces without reducing the dimensions of the room. available at: pohlenz.com

|The URBAN theme is targeted to
urbanites who enjoy mixing
different styles with a creatively
fresh perspective on flexibility
and functionality. The collection
was inspired by the eclectic
lifestyles that comprise the city,
whether expressed through a
contemporary loft, pre-war
coop, brownstone or penthouse.
Contrasting style is the hallmark
of the URBAN design theme’s
elements, which is defined
by the freestanding SieMatic
29 kitchen sideboard.
|New tall cabinets with a
freestanding look and base
cabinets with open shelves,
as well as a granite herb
garden or storage option for
kitchen islands, make up
the remainder of the
collection’s new introductions.
Elements of the URBAN theme
are customizable in any of the
SieMatic ColorSystem choices
and selection of materials.
