estudiosat: artica kitchen for delta cocinas

manufacturing company delta cocinas challenged product and engineering firm estudiosat to develop a kitchen completely different to those existing in the current market place. ‘artica’ uses the emotional language of design to create a radically new product without losing any of its functionality. its form is the result of interpreting of the digital language that surrounds us, by applying the methods of deconstructivism on a three dimensional surface. the result is a visual impact that requires no added company investment, and maintains traditional production processes while respecting the environment.

the space is constructed out of a modular system where each door is divided into 15 cm by 15 cm sections that use the points to make up the different vertexes of the largest door design of 120 cm. from the result of this template all standard door widths of 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90, were retained and used in the space.
