Poliform / Cosentino
Designed in collaboration with Poliform and Dekton by Cosentino, the kitchen is a major feat of engineering – uniting modularity with unparalleled design. Crafted from Dekton and Alea Plus, Poliform’s contemporary kitchen system, the concept highlights the furniture brand’s capabilities in customization and the unlimited applications of the ultra-compact surface.
“There’s a tendency in kitchen design to clad the sides of an island in surfacing for drama and impact,” Germani says. “But it immediately limits its functionality. I instead envisioned two independent geometric volumes that create an equally stunning visual impact while maximizing use.” The result: A minimal, streamlined aesthetic where the quality of both materials shine.
Equally impressive is the island’s scale, almost 30 feet, which spans the length of the kitchen and allows two or more to comfortably share and work in the space. Two expansive islands unite with a singular slab of Dekton Chromica, which defines the intended dining space for the kitchen. An integrated cooktop on one end contributes to the kitchen’s sleek and unique aesthetic. The other end is anchored with a service sink, so guests may still make full use of the space without interrupting meal prep. The dining table serves as a bridge for the two main volumes creating an organic and highly functional space.
“Both Poliform and Dekton push the design envelope and they very much complement one another. Together they inspired me to create a space and experience where different scales, materials and specifications know no bounds.”
The entirely custom adaptation is offered made-to-order.
