More than just an open floor plan, the social kitchen is a design philosophy for the way we live. It’s a complete environment where the love of cooking combines with enjoying time spent with family and friends. A flexible space that can tackle the demands of daily life, yet is inviting and comfortable for casual entertaining; the perfect space for socializing!
Eclectic mix. Contrasting surfaces of glass, lacquer and tile motifs blend in this multifaceted kitchen.
Modern living. Tailored to adapt to small spaces, this modern kitchen has all the functionality and stylistic elements of a luxury kitchen.
Designed for living. This kitchen’s island–table combo makes the perfect connection between cooking and living spaces.
A study in contrasts. Black and white, glass and metal, luxurious and functional all at the same time.
