The Kitchen Island KI1 is another product recently rewarded with a “selection” grade of the Interior Innovation Award. The jury has selected this product for its outstanding new design and the great melt of veneer and colour. The kitchen is asymmetrically shaped with five angles. The magenta-coloured artificial stone is threedimensionally carved, so that all water flows to the sink. Three cooking hobs are placed freely on the stone. A 50-year-old French walnut veneer winds itself in perfect interconnection around the island. Its core is against tradition positioned to the outside, so that the darker colour fits perfectly into the magenta colour.
