nendo's ki kitchen + bathroom schemes for scavolini structured on containers and wooden shelves

 

the ‘ki’ collection combines the prestigious italian craftsmanship of scavolini and the distinctive design of nendo. in japanese, ‘ki’ simultaneously means container and wood, thus nendo’s kitchen and bathroom environments take these elements to create an expressive system — generous white basins arranged along wooden shelves — that can be repeated infinitely, in a pure and essential way.

through ‘ki’, scavolini and nendo envision new ways of inhabiting space. the result is a storage network that creates dominating compositions that come in an exclusive range of decorative finishes specifically created for scavolini, including two wood-effect nuances that blend artisan know-how with advanced technologies.

the container element can also be defined as a wash basin

 

 

 

the ‘ki’ bathroom environment sees the container replace traditional wall units, as well as being defined as a wash basin, offering both lay-on, semi-recessed, under-top and free-standing versions. mirrors, rigorous slabs that rest on counter tops and against walls, conceal a practical LED lighting system that comes in pendant or wall-mounted options. the latter is an additional furnishing element and has been specifically designed for the collection. similarly, freestanding towel racks can house a container for extra storage.

the ‘ki’ kitchen space is characterized by linear, island and peninsula compositions. here, containers rest on shelves and function as wall units; or reappear in the sink and hob units. doors, profile handles, up stands, back panels, plinths and tops come in a single finish. base units and baskets can be opened using a door — with a shaped handle and a top with a 45° slanted profile — developed especially for the model. nendo has also designed a hood to complete the entire scheme.

 

nendo’s ‘ki’ kitchen and bathroom for scavolini were presented at eurocucina and salone internazionale del bagno during salone del mobile 2016.
