A kitchen design starts with the colour, Atelier by Abimis in an elegant apartment in Vicenza 10.12.2019
Beauty, history and design are combined with sophisticated vintage features inside this large, charming and bright home, situated on the top floor of a historical, 19th century apartment block in the heart of this city in Italy’s Veneto region. The apartment was recently renovated by Studio Albanese… and, right in the centre, an Atelier kitchen.
Atelier is a perfect and authentic expression of the modern kitchen concept, a place that, over time, has become a large “multifunctional laboratory” where an increasing number of different activities can be carried out, without ever losing its main role linked to cooking.
Atelier offers maximum customisation possibilities, representing Abimis‘s ability to fulfil both aesthetic and functional requirements which are often very complex, specific and unique, all at the same time as respecting the architecture of the space where the kitchen is installed.
In this loft apartment, with its large, exposed beams that outline the ceilings, the kitchen is set among cosy, warm and friendly surroundings, despite this being an open-plan living area, creating an easy-going and relaxed atmosphere.
Atelier, made from AISI 304 stainless steel, is a considerably large kitchen, stretching along both of the kitchen’s side walls. It is made to measure and has been customised in terms of its shape and colour, making this a unique and personal space. The doors, without any handles and rigorously square-shaped to give the kitchen units a streamlined and tidy look, are painted in a vibrant red.
As well as having an immediate visual impact, the colour red really sparks emotions in this room, creating an atmosphere and a sensation of warmth. Or, why not, perhaps simply representing an aesthetic ‘quirk’.
The opposite wall, on the other hand, is home to the “storage and organisation stage” with a series of columns, also made of stainless steel, and a large free-standing refrigerator. The space next to the balcony door is taken up by an open column which has been tailor-made according to the wishes of the apartment’s owners, dedicated to their collection of cookbooks.
The new A_ccessori range, designed by Roberta Tosolini for Abimis make this kitchen even luxurious and efficient: a range of accessories, such as containers and carafes, that combine design and elegance.
