The entire island, which can be easily moved within the space of any building volume, withdraws into itself in an abstract and uniform shape, thanks to a sandblasted natural shade oak-wood covering. A covering which, by rotating on pins, offers a different worktop or, whenever the kitchen is not being used, hides the hob and stainless steel sinks. design 2012 Gianna Farina Semplice # 1 Copper worktop in matt st.steel rotating table in natural Oak wood with copper edges
The sculptural form is accentuated by the refinement of the materials.
This stand-alone monolite contains the washing and cooking area. This kitchen island with its sculptural impact is outfitted with two sliding tables. When closed the two tables hides the working area with a welded sink and a full induction hob, but when the two â€œUâ€? shaped tables are silent slid to the side it creates a perfect place that can be used as a bar or a serving space. design 2014 Gianna Farina, Marco Gorini Semplice # 5 black st.steel sliding top in grey Oak wood and black st.steel
