Product description

SineTempore is a kitchen conceived to express the values of tradition through the recovery of various ancient handicraft techniques: inlays, carvings and mosaics decorate the wooden surfaces, while bushhammering is used for the surfaces of the worktop back panels and grinding (cutting) for glass.

An important element for the sustainability of an object is its duration. The more durable an object is, the more sustainable it can be considered to be. Handicraft work is functional to aesthetic durability because customisation and manual work create a bond towards the object that make its beauty appreciated for a greater length of time. This results in a longer usable life of the object, i.e. a longer lifecycle, reducing its impact on the environment and increasing its environmental friendliness.

The doors have an “Olmo Tattile" finish while the surfaces of the worktops are in marble or porphyry. All the carcasses and shelving elements are in solid elm with comb or tenon joints, i.e. a type of joint that fits perfectly into its equivalent, empty space. The traditional copper cooker hood with a trapezoidal body or the more modern P20 hood in steel can be used on this kitchen.
