At Cuisines Steam, ingenuity and craftsmanship are always at the helm of the design process. Each tailor-made kitchen stems from a desire to fully respect the individual context and continually push design limits in order to achieve a seamless integration into the home.
“With every kitchen that we manufacture, we strive to offer the highest caliber of design as well as the best quality materials and detailing. We are constantly
searching for new technologies and materials in order to create the most unique and the most functional environments for our clients.”
This kitchen is no exception. Every detail was researched and thought through in order to offer a functional and tidy space with a dash of excitement and surprise. The folding and sliding door mechanism offers up a hidden counter to store and use small
appliances. The interior of this section is finished in wood veneer in order to create a contrast with the light-colored exterior. In so doing, this section emanates a warm and welcoming feeling when it is open and offers up a dual life to the otherwise sleek
The materials in this kitchen have been chosen for their durability, nobility and originality. The metal fabric used on the pantry doors, for example, is removable to allow for quick cleaning and was chosen for its rustic yet industrial appeal. A mix of
wood, lacquer, metal and glass work together to create a soft palette that is ultimately elegant and polished.
“We toyed with the idea of blocks when designing this kitchen. Each zone is individually configured with its own metal base and can be installed as desired. They
act as a independent pieces yet they work together to assemble the larger puzzle.”
The butcher block ties in this idea as it fits precisely on the edge of the island and visually anchors it in place. The backsplash behind the stovetop is enclosed within a metal frame, much like a painting. In this way, it becomes highlighted and visually links the fan with the cabinets so the cooking zone is read as a whole.
