Softly Spoken Design

This design is simple but it manages to ignite our human curiosity with things that look a little peculiar.  We may question why the island looks off set, asymmetrically unbalanced and wonder why we find it interesting?  A closer examination of the design satisfies our inquisitive nature as we discover some crafty functionality integrated into this monolithic configuration! 
Ornate detailing can be exquisite, showcasing flamboyant flair and inherited craftsmanship but simple shapes can be equally inspiring.  The simplicity of this island takes centre stage surrounded by an architecturally embedded and arguably impotent kitchen backdrop.   It is interesting that the mirrored panels around the oven housing reflect the island, allowing its influence to resonate throughout the architecture.
Sometimes softly spoken words can deliver tremendous consequences.  The same can be said of this design!
