Keeping up with our interest in the most modern and futuristic trend of kitchen décor, delve in Agreste- the second of the four up-to-the-minute kitchen lines, designed by Alessandro Mendini for an Italian company Alessi, under one project – La Cucina Alessi. Originally the word ‘Agreste’ signifies a narrow zone in some of the states in Brazil. Likewise here also Agreste features a simple, functional design, comprised of a single-block island in front of wall-mounted column storage. The island incorporates an ebonized wood breakfast counter, which slightly overlaps the surface of the stainless steel worktop.
Door fronts and drawers are in glazed stainless steel, with studded features. The Pyroceram hob is available in a rectangular shape, or follows the shape of the work surface, and the Valcucine hood above is delicately curved. The sunken stainless sink (as well as the worktop and hob) are produced by Foster, and the faucet in the Agreste concept was designed by Stefano Giovannoni for Oras. The Valcucine storage columns are in the same ebonized wood used on the counter, with leaf-shaped inlays, bringing plenty of warmth to balance the predominantly stainless steel work area.
