dror develops double-duty ARC kitchen system for AVANI




seeking to reach the luxury market, AyA kitchens and baths has created a high-end brand AVANI to deliver high-end, bespoke kitchens featuring modern, clean lines and warm details, that complement their existing commercial product line.


to debut AVANI, the company sought out the creative direction of dror benshetrit, founder of new york-based studio dror to envision a system that encompasses its design intentions and market objectives.


unveiled on the occasion of the toronto interior design show, dror’s ‘ARC collection’ is a transformative cabinetry system that offers integrated details such as pull-less doors and hidden appliance garages that assist in optimizing one’s space. the design takes its namesake from its feature element, an arc-like island made from Corian® that double-functions as a counter and bar, which when not in use, can be retracted into the main wall unit, thus further maximizing functionality and overall occupiable living area. additionally, a sleek aesthetic is continued through the stained rift cut white oak cabinetry.
