The smooth and pleasing curves, so characteristic for the caravans’ silhouette, together with the iconic round openings define the vintage twist of the otherwise futuristic and contemporary appearance of the Air Kitchens design. Slender stainless steel legs or a matching base for the cabinets that gives them the appearance of floating, light color scheme and single solid volumes contribute to the exciting feeling of space and airiness in this modern kitchen designed and built in Great Britain.
Woven coppiced-beech panels – a typical Cox touch, are used on the backs of some of the cabinets small design elements like drawers and sink unit are adorned with round copper-lined holes for opening, while the cupboards have little wooden knobs made from matching wood. Combining dynamics and expressive materials palette: copper, wood, marble, and glass; the designers entwined the rustic charm of a cottage with the high functionality requirements of modern life.
As you are designing your kitchen and accounting for doubled appliances and maximizing it's storage, keep in mind that twice the appliances also means twice the electrical and plumbing needs. Be sure to take this into account and factor in clearance for your appliances, and also to install adequate ventilation to remove extra cooking fumes and moisture. These may infringe on spaces that would otherwise be used for cabinetry and for this reason a lot of designers suggest extending cabinetry to the ceiling to allow for maximum storage.
Here is one excellent contemporary example of “the richness of simplicity” concept – this kitchen project of INDada entwines bright and modern shapes, materials and colors in one stylish and functional design with infinite configurations and poetic details. Estivale Kitchen designed in collaboration with Benedini Associati – is combining the textures of the dramatic black marble top with the warm oak surfaces that add a rustic charm to the contemporary composition. The kitchen includes multiple structures that entwine the illuminated glass shelving glamour with the shining aluminum finishes in Liquid Metal brass colored satin antique. The combination of robust dark materials and warm wooden structures (with a vintage flavor) is always a winning combination when it comes to modern kitchen design.
