Maestrale by Studio Piazzogna for Scandola Mobili. A contemporary kitchen that embodies the reassuring mood of tradition

Combining top quality solid spruce wood with a selection of diversified materials. The target? To propose a fully contemporary kitchen without forgoing the reassuring mood of tradition. This is what Scandola Mobili has achieved with its new Maestrale collection, designed by Studio Plazzogna with the aim of reinterpreting wood, endowing it with an unusual function for the company’s canons. The eclectic mix of materials and finishes informs the entire project: the island and kitchen counter are in old gray wood finish (a unique recycled material) with visible veining, the top is in brushed steel, while the columns have a pewter-colored concrete effect finish. The wall units are lacquered in caramel color, a warm shade that creates a contrast and enlivens the composition, and the open compartments are in iron to ensure a vaguely industrial look. Despite its sophisticated modern touches, Maestrale fits with total consistency into the production of Scandola Mobili, which has always designed and produced furnishings designed to convey well-being to those who live with them. This care for people and the environment is embodied in the use of wood coming exclusively from areas subject to controlled reforestation (with all leftovers being used to heat the factory) and in the use of completely non-toxic water-based paints.
