Scavolini entrusted non other than Fabrizio Giugiaro for designing their ‘Flux’ set of kitchens. For the unintiated, Giugiaro is one of Italy’s powerhouses in design, renowned world over for its contribution to the automotive industry and Fabrizio himself was instrumental in designing the 2006 Ford Mustang.
All this is well, but if you are wondering how successful could car designers be in designing kitchens, we suggest you take a look at their work below and decide for yourself.
A striking, contemporary composition with metallic red gloss lacquered doors, combined with steel worktops and wall claddings. The base and wall units, with curved doors, have visible aluminium-colour carcase. The circular cooking zone, including a base unit with revolving basket and cylindrical hood with mat black lacquered wings, is also eye-catching. The steel sink is integral with the worktop.
The entire body of the kitchen, in “Wood”, is arranged around the island, with its rational appeal and highly original dynamic, curved shape. The sinuous, ergonomic lines of base and wall units make it easy to organise storage space effectively. The base units have roomy pull-out big baskets, while the fl ap doors of the wall units mean more space inside.
Innovatively designed, high-tech, ergonomic, versatile and multifunctional. The Flux kitchen, born of Scavolini’s vast experience and the inspired genius of a master of design, expresses a new kitchen lifestyle: dynamic, young, and open to the world and all its novelties.
Trendy shades for an absolutely unique kitchen. The composition with curved base and wall units cannot fail to surprise with its unusual colour and sophisticated alternation of pale grey gloss lacquered and metallic purple gloss lacquered fi nishes on the base and wall units. The kitchen’s strong identity is further underlined by the little satin-fi nish metal handles and the breakfast bar with metallic support.
Seems they were pretty much up to the challenge! What do you think?
