Mayan Kitchen

There is a great presence in this design by Saporiti Italia drawing the viewer in and presenting hidden treasures at every turn.  The main focal point of the design is the island which looks as though it has been forged by the hand of an ancient Mayan stone mason.  There is a compromise here in that the ultimate functional possibilities for the island have been purposely restricted to enable the aesthetical beauty of this monolith to be adored in all its splendor!  

But that’s not all; this design considers that the kitchen is a functional art installation and that there should be an appreciation of light and of all three dimensional planes.  Some of the doors have been etched, again reminiscent of Mayan artwork, to invite light and shadows!  Add to this mix a simple linear matrix, modern materials such as coloured glass, quartz worktops and LED lights and this kitchen is an understated functional beauty!

The Mogul Approves!
