italian luxury kitchen brand cesar has opened its first US flagship store in manhattan’s flatiron district, adding new york to its roster of global cities. known for its high-tech, expertly crafted cookspaces, cesar’s street-level showroom on 23rd street is open to the public for samplings, shows, meetings and events focused on italian design.

 

interpreted under the art direction of the garcia cumini associati studio, five kitchens have been realized against a slightly textured, warm grey backdrop and set atop brushed oak flooring stained in the same shade. a system of lighting designed by flos complements the materials used for the various displays. ‘for the cesar new york showroom, we have decided to focus on a single color applied to different materials,’ cinzia cumini and vicente garcia describe. ‘this has allowed us to heighten the dimensions of a space that, like many manhattan stores, consists of two large shop windows that open up onto an area that has an incredible depth to it.’

the kitchens are organized by a visual route marked out by gloss black metal mesh partitions. ‘maxima 2.2’ greets visitors at the entrance, displayed with a central island with ceramic base units and a white stoneware top, matte white lacquered tall units and heat-treated oak surface. nearby, the ‘yara’ model features a base, tall units and shelves in black walnut, wall units in etched mocha glass, and an agglomerate caesarstone worktop.

 

in a different area, a layout pairs ‘maxima 2.2’ base and tall units in gloss pearl grey lacquer with an ‘elle’ island in heat-treated oak. lastly, ‘kalea’ sets off the living room area with black etched glass wall units and brown oak carcasses.
