When you go for the most rigorous modernist aesthetic, industrial cabinets set the style.
Clean lines, flat surfaces and industrial style cabinets rule in this New York beach house kitchen. Oddly for its place, it almost looks like a science lab and it opens into the living and dining areas. The look comes from Boffi Works cabinets — high-end modular units in wood veneer and stainless steel, mixed and matched and fitted with a system of tables and rolling drawers. Drawers contain anti-slip mats, while cabinets contain elaborate custom inserts and pull-outs.
Here, Zodiaq solid-surface counters resemble concrete, which suits the concept. A boxy, skeletal stainless steel island hood (we can catch just a bit of the bottom) and open shelving systems suspended on cables, as well as a utensil rail are also fashioned from green, indestructible stainless steel. Colors of both materials are echoed in the slate-tile floor. A Viking oven and warming drawer fit flush. The mix of wood veneer with stainless armoires gives the kitchen a semi-fitted look.
Something different, but part of the point in this kitchen, is the exposed plumbing below an integral sink. That elevates plumbing fittings to design elements that need not be hidden. Drains and water lines are treated as sculpture and require an artistic installation. KWC faucets, a reliable high end Swiss brand, fit in with the look.
Of course, many of these elements are familiar to consumers as features from Ikea (which has done a great job recreating them at a budget price point). They also are common to high-end kitchens from the German manufacturer Bulthaup, which shares the international kitchen aesthetic.
