‘sinetempore’ by gabriele centazzo for valcucine
valcucine‘s new ‘sinetempore’, designed by gabriele centazzo, is a marriage of industrial processing and handicraft.
the kitchen system values ancient techniques like carvings, inlays, mosaics and pyrography, by applying them to the finish
of the contemporary cooking space’s cabinets and work surfaces.
the doors, storage and shelving units of ‘sinetempore’ are made from elm, constructed using comb or tenon joints,
with counters produced in marble or porphyry. the traditional copper cooker with a trapezoidal body,
or the more modern P20 hood in steel is used in combination with this kitchen.
involving the work of small craftsman workshops all over the world, the new traditional-style kitchen features carving details,
as well as inlays along its wooden surfaces providing decorative elements to the overall design. furthermore, bush hammering,
a treatment typically for stone elements, is applied to the worktop back panels giving a subtle corrugated finish.
