BELUGA’S WALL-MOUNTED ELEMENTS. A project by Ferruccio Laviani for Rastelli. 17.03.2020
Beluga, designed by Ferruccio Laviani, is one of the most iconic kitchens of Rastelli. Characterized by rigorous geometry, able to modulate and give rhythm to the space in a continuous alternation between full and empty, also creates an elegant balance between metal and wood shades.
An example of this is the composition in ash Hielo which includes a series of wall-hung elements. Unlike the island versions, in this case, the kitchen develops as a wall unit: a series of modules allows you to outline the cooking area, the washing area and the working area, as needed; with just as much design freedom, it is possible to design shelves, shelving systems and open units realized with a light metal structure.
Metal becomes the protagonist element of Beluga: this material, chosen for the tubulars that define the essential geometry of the kitchen, creates a refined combination with the wood of the doors. And further, the perforated sheet gives at the same time strength and lightness to the composition, creating an interesting game of lights and shadows.
Not overlooking the functionality, the kitchen is equipped with large drawers and provides tall units to house the pantry and household appliances. The strong visual impact, the solid geometry and the careful selection of materials once again show the attention that Rastelli pays to the value of design and to Made in Italy, also thanks to the collaboration with such designers as Ferruccio Laviani.
