Forwards, sideways, backwards
by Anna Moldenhauer | 1/25/2019
Refinement and finesse along with natural materials, wood and ceramic, dictate the design of the new filigno kitchen, which creates a flowing transition from the kitchen to the living-dining area.
The front part of the island is the height of a sideboard, while the attached work surface made of ceramic turns it into a functional cooking island. The transition is made clear by the change in height and material, but the living spaces melt together harmoniously in use. This merging of the living areas is highlighted by the delicate casing of 12 mm thin solid wood panels, which is also a design feature of the eponymous filigno occasional furniture. The base is recessed on the side, emphasising the visual lightness of the filigno kitchen island and making it appear to float.
The thin solid wood panels are only 12 mm, allowing for the fineness of the filigno kitchen. They are manufactured using the most up-to-date 3-layer technology with end-grained wood edgeband and retain their shape despite being so thin. Another fine detail – as in all of our 3-layer boards – is the pattern created by the wood grain, which is sorted carefully by hand.
