Today Arclinea also provides a concrete answer for the planning of outdoor cooking areas. The new Artusi Island becomes a true unique ‘outdoor’ kitchen, like every Arclinea product, conceived and presents as a real space – a kitchen for living and using.
Artusi, in its main free-standing version, is still today the perfect synthesis of design, ergonomics and function. Created after the success of Italia, the first kitchen to take professional catering criteria into the home kitchen, the essentiality and compactness of Artusi takes credit for what is perhaps the best example of professional cuisine, thought up and translated into the home setting.
In response to Perth’s newfound passion for kitchens, being the central hub of the home, European Concepts is proud to showcase Convivium, a streamlined kitchen and living space furniture system that maximises the use of space. Beautifully suited to an open floor plan, Convivium elements include a gleaming stainless steel island with a 200mm thick bench top, seamlessly welded for an exceptional finish. The versatility of the island is enhanced by the inclusion of a professional quality sink and hotplates. In a masterpiece of design and engineering ingenuity, a lift-up glass ranged is built in to the island top.
Providing an accessible storage and display feature, suspended stainless steel shelving is the ultimate in space efficiency and designer style. The innovative shelving option also incorporate an indoor greenhouse – complete with a dedicated lighting system – for the freshest of herbs within easy reach of the chef. The Convivium system is complemented by a veneer table which is conveniently fitted with a gas lift enabling the formation of an extended preparation area or, alternatively, a dining table when lowered.
With Euro style for the most contemporary environment and busy modern lifestyle European Concepts presents a living experience par excellence.
Spectacular in appearance and implicitly functional, the designers of Lignum et Lapis have incorporated every conceivable modern convenient within this linear ensemble. Suspended base units introduce a sense of space as well as providing a canvas for intriguing visual impact – the exterior of the base unit can be customised with a large range of veneers or painted finishes to complement the scheme employed throughout a residence. The worktop has a duality of purpose, extending beyond the sink and hotplate zones to provide a snack bench and an increased preparation area. The designer worktop can be finished in marble, stainless steel or veneer. The Lignum et Lapis suite features tall cabinets which have the advantage of integrating all appliances behind closed doors – from dishwashers to fridges and freezers – so that they are no longer a visual impediment to an exquisitely-designed kitchen. And, for the connoisseur of fruits of the vine, the Lignum et Lapis wine fridge comprises full stainless steel shelving beneath internal LED lighting. Smoked glass doors complete the story.
European Concepts is on a mission to reeducate the design industry – offering proof positive that no two living spaces need be the same. While kitchen design has previously been seen largely as ‘function first’ with the subsequent addition of attractive finishes or highlights, the European Concepts solution provides equal consideration to utility and style at the design stage – with extraordinary results.
