Poolside cooking with Abimis
An elegant outdoor version of the Atelier kitchen plays the starring role in this scenic villa in Geneva, while Cooling Station, a new project designed by Abimis, creates an unprecedented al fresco sociability experience in an exclusive summer residence in Mykonos.
The ‘Swiss’ kitchen, which is installed under the portico of the villa’s large garden, by the pool, stands out for its simple and understated styling, providing a compact and perfectly accessorised solution that is ideal for a setting with such a sophisticated and contemporary design. Atelier comprises four modules here, which are used as storage compartments plus a small under-counter refrigerator. The top plays host to the cooking area with a grill and a sink which, thanks to purpose-designed covers, can be transformed into practical work surfaces.
Atelier is made entirely of AISI 316 stainless steel, a material that is perfect for outdoor use, and thanks to the addition of molybdenum, it proves particularly suitable for ‘life’ in settings that are rich in chlorine and salt air.
Atelier was designed by the home owner himself, with the help of the engineering team at Abimis: what he wanted was a second kitchen in which to delve into his passion and spend his spare time in the open air.
A holiday atmosphere and the desire for a carefree ambiance characterise the house in Mykonos, which in its enchanting poolside patio hosts a Cooling Station, the new project by Abimis, comprising an extremely compact block, made of AISI 316 stainless steel, consisting of a small sink, a refrigerator and an ice cube maker, complete with wall units for easy storage of glassware and bottles.
Customisable in both size and finish – the outer surface can in fact be painted in glossy or matt stainless steel or in any RAL colour, using the same techniques used in the automotive industry – better to adapt to its surrounding context, the Cooling Station is the perfect solution for every ‘bartender’, whether professional or amateur.
Once again, this new project underscores the ability of Abimis to create bespoke customisable solutions to accommodate any domestic requirement while satisfying dreams and passions.
