Atelier by Abimis: fully made to measure, even in an attic 27.02.2019
The Atelier kitchen by Abimis differs from the iconic Ego model due to its geometrically well-balanced appearance and meticulous design, with strong reference to the world of professional catering. An interesting example of this model can be found in a boho contemporary-style attic in Vicenza, structured around a neutral colour scheme and the use of only a few, different materials: steel, wood and stone.
The kitchen, made from AISI 304 stainless steel, runs along most of the attic’s perimeter, whose slightly pentagonal shape (with obtuse angles) forced the designer to create a bespoke kitchen. There are no signs of any joints, which were eliminated on-site during assembly. Combined with the brightness of the surfaces, which interacts well with the natural light flooding in through the large windows and skylight, this helps to extend the perspective of the room, expanding it and making it appear even wider. The doors also contribute to this effect, partially reflecting the interesting hexagonal tile pattern on the flooring, in shades of grey.
The horizontal oak surfaces, such as the two shelves and breakfast bar, all made to measure, give the room a warm atmosphere, softening its clearly contemporary look.
Everything in this attic is designed to fit the space available down to the last millimetre. The kitchen’s splashback is a great example: its shape also follows the contour of the small window at the end of the room. Or take the long shelf opposite the window as another example, which is also made from stainless steel.
The Atelier kitchen is an exceptional tool, in the hands of cooking enthusiasts. Its ergonomics (such as the recessed socle, the customised height of the units, and all the extractable compartments) and high levels of hygiene throughout (such as the compartments that are bevelled along the bottom to prevent dirt and bacteria from building up and to make cleaning easier), support the cook as he works, transforming the daily ritual of cooking into something unique and personal.
