A solution conceived only for island configurations, K-In/K-Out by Rossana is a single closed block with mobile planes that slide laterally and lengthwise to change the volume.
Presented at Eurocucina 2016, after the development of the mechanisms and an exclusive range of materials, today the two versions of the project are ready for their international launch.
The Saatchi Gallery, the famous London-based contemporary art venue, was the perfect place for a major launch event.
Sculpted in a single block of Arabescato Orobico marble, K-In/K-Out was displayed at the center of an exclusive art itinerary. On one side, the collection of paintings by Philipp-Rudolf Humm, a Belgian-German artist based in London; on the other, the spectacular Virtual Reality tour of Manhattan Loft Corporation Sky Gardens featuring Rossana, a virtual experience that led guests on a voyage from an imaginary sky to an environment. The space then crumbled and reassembled itself in a real project representing the nature of Sky Gardens: an exclusive apartment with an evocative roof garden. The protagonist inside was the K-In Rossana, in its ideal situation, next to a window facing the garden.
The already innovative K-In/K-Out by Rossana is even more advanced today thanks to the development of technological details and the expansion of its range of materials.
One year after the launch at Eurocucina 2016, K-In/K-Out is ready to face an international market: over 700 professionals, designers and architects were on hand, including Tom Dixon.
Partners of the project also included Bonsoir Paris, the design firm founded by the creative directors Rémy Clémente and Morgan Maccari, responsible for the spectacular artworks that formed the setting for the Rossana island, original mobile installations in wood, with a helical form.
The prestigious event was also an ideal moment to pay tribute to the designer Massimo Castagna, who has worked with Rossana since 2000. This latest project adds an important new facet to the ambitious growth program of the brand, with the goal of creating a single system-range that can be applied to the entire Rossana collection.
