the main feature of oasi is the tree that stands in the center of the unit. this element of the design represents both  stefano boeri and ARAN cucine‘s sustainability values. an irrigation system is integrated into the multifunctional kitchen unit and there’s also an area dedicated to compost for fertilizing the tree. the tree also symbolizes a place to gather and grow. the italian company explains, ‘as you grow the tree will grow itself, like a family, until the kitchen turns into something new, following the dynamism of the people linked together under its branches.’

the kitchen cabinet doors are crafted from old oak structures reclaimed from the venice lagoon, known as ‘briccole’ in italian. the wood is protected with an acrylic and water-based paint, with no VOC. the worktop is made from corian, a brand of solid surface materials. true to the brand and like all ARAN cucine products, the oasi kitchen unit is 100% made in italy.
