Von der Leichtigkeit des Kochens

Tòla is a kitchen counter made by wooden boards craftily glued together to enhance the full energy of this noble material. the architectural bearing elements are the sixteen-centimeter deep hinges, both vertical and horizontal, in which all the plumbing a
nd electric cables are set up. the wide horizontal top becomes the washing, preparing and cooking place. furthermore, the cantilever offers a space for convivial consumption, which suggests the funny connection of tòla to its original name. in the dialect
of veneto tola refers to the wooden board or table. the meaning of this word is also interesting in sanskrit, that is "weight".
