Sipario. Makio Hasuike for ARAN Cucine 24.02.2021
Makio Hasuike, who received the Compasso d’Oro Career Award, co-operated with ARAN Cucine’s R&D team in designing Sipario. This model has now become the ‘ideal’ of order and rationality among the various proposals offered by the company. At first glance, in fact, the kitchen succeeds in conveying the essence of Japanese design thanks to its harmonious, orderly and essential image.
Therefore, focusing on a rational space in which all elements are perfectly balanced with each other, Sipario develops in always linear, minimal, functional configurations. It is the combination of units and finishes different from each other to allow a high degree of customization, up to a possible bond between classical and contemporary style.
The version with light Canaletto walnut doors and wall cabinets in steel and crystal is one such example. The traditional wooden suit dress up the extremely essential units: on the one hand, the hanging base units are very peculiar, on the other, the more classical tall units are large and roomy, and can be equipped with internal shelves and household appliances.
The wall cabinets include glass shelving units and a large module that comes with a single steel door: thanks to the many support brackets and to the lightness of the material, you can activate the mechanism with a simple touch making the opening and closing processes easier.
The Totems are also interesting: freestanding modular elements, configurable according to your needs, supported by a metal structure in testa di moro finish (the same finish chosen for the toekicks, the c-channels and the base unit legs); here too, the storage compartment plays on the combination of wood and crystal, in balance between different densities and materials.
Even in its most classical kitchen layout, due to the choice and combination of materials, Sipario does not lose its own oriental allure, and keep telling an ideal of order and perfect harmony, even in more contemporary homes.
