A starry sky in the kitchen

The choice of an exhaust hood varies according to different needs
Data Pubblicazione: 2 February 2018

Always in search of advanced systems to improve life in the kitchen, Falmec presents the new Sirio ceiling-mounted exhaust hood, a solution built into the suspended ceiling, occupying very little space.

With its perimeter exhaust system and the sober elegance of white tempered glass, Sirio represents an ideal solution for kitchens where minimal style and geometric rigor are the main parameters.

Sirio is part of the Design line, a collection that acts as an incubator of ideas, a constant work in progress, using sophisticated materials and innovative new technologies.

A treasure chest of wood and steel

Data Pubblicazione: 1 February 2018

The new C19 designed by MAMA Arch. Massimo Manfredini in the historical center of Borgosesia, a town in Valsesia at the foot of the Monte Rosa massif, is like a warm, welcoming cavern.

Located in a Liberty-style building on Via Roma, the project is based on the local tradition: low, compact houses, thick walls, small openings for protection from the cold.

The suspended ceiling in blanched oak continues on one wall, enveloping the space. The wall terminates in a shelf which in the restaurant configuration remains lowered, while in the aperitif-event configuration it is raised to function as a counter. The contrast with the dark gray of the other walls adds rhythm to the spaces.

The entrance features a bar counter conceived as an enormous wooden ram that floats on a backlit white opaline plexiglas base. The effect is that of a heavy, compact mass suspended in a light, evanescent setting, lit with an Uto suspension lamp by Foscarini.

Architecture in nature

Spruce is the protagonist in the renovation of an ecosustainable cabin in the mountains, in the province of Belluno
Data Pubblicazione: 30 January 2018

An old cafe-restaurant built in the 1970s has been completely renovated thanks to the work of Rubner Haus.

“This is a major regeneration, but not invasive – says the architect Mariachiara De Silvestro – because we wanted to create a work of rural architecture that would differ from the typical structures in the zone, making an original break with the usual schemes and establishing a harmonious relationship with the surrounding nature.”

This goal has been achieved by using a unique material: spruce planks.

The exterior has raw boards treated with a gray color similar to that of natural weathering; the interior panels are in polished spruce with a natural shade.

The openings feature a darkening and closure system made with sliding panels.
