‘lacucina alessi’ by wiel arets
dutch architect wiel arets has collaborated with italian company alessi and pordenone-based kitchen manufacturer valcucine
to create ‘lacucina alessi’. made entirely from glacier white Corian®, the freestanding furniture has a unified appearance as the flush
lower cabinets merge into the wrapped rounded countertop and integrated sink, all of which is held together by a hidden joint system.
to save space, the upper storage area has sliding doors with an inset pull.
the unit is also equipped with a tap, also designed by arets and produced by italian company oras. unlike the typical faucets,
the design has a 48 mm spout, making it distinctive and functional.
materials transition from the upper cabinetry to the countertop and sink creating a seamless unit
