A kitchen which, like the name it bears, is essential but direct and intense: the heart of the project, the large island with cantilevered top

A pure, essential design identifies the new island kitchen Haiku by Key Cucine, born with the designer Nevio Tellatin and the architect Anita Brotto. In the name, its source of inspiration which refers to short Japanese compositions: simple, direct and, at the same time, intense poems.

Haiku puts the whole island at the center, as a strong visual element, a fulcrum of balance and functionality. There are various details that express its elegance: essential doors that join up with the top outlining a closed shape, very thin handles that, in the central part of the island, underline the division between the door and the drawer above.

And then the large top, with integrated sink, which extends to form a cantilevered counter, also rounded, with increasing thickness. Its measurements, which vary according to the individual projects, are 4.72 m long by 1.35 m deep and 94 cm high. The joints, finely worked, are invisible so as to give an effect of continuity, without interruptions, of the stone.

Haiku is also distinguished by the skilful combination of refined materials: Emotion Gray marble for the top and counter; surfaces in bronzed pewter with a metallic effect for the island; solid brushed black oak with visible grain for the doors of the tall units.

Not only that, inside the Haiku kitchen it is also possible to insert the columns of the Twins model by Key Cucine: elements in honeycomb-paneled aluminum finished with a silk-effect powder coating, for an unprecedented game that combines functionality a tactile pleasure. Because Haiku wants to evoke emotions, bringing the taste of living the kitchen as a special moment of encounter back to the center of daily life.

The cantilevered top reveals an important thickness, albeit characterized by thin and graceful lines. Brushed black oak with marked veins for the wardrobes that frame the island: full-height equipped columns on the right and, in the background, two modules with strips processing characteristic of the oriental style.
