Winner of the Compasso d’Oro Career Award Makio Hasuike has worked with Italian kitchen furniture manufacturer Aran Cucine to create Sipario.
The furniture range conveys the essence of Japanese design, with a harmonious, orderly and essential appearance.
Combining finishes and materials, Sipario offers a high level of customisation, including a bond of contemporary and classical styles.
Offering an example of this Aran Cucine shows the furniture, here, in light Canaletto walnut doors with wall cabinets in steel and crystal, and freestanding modular elements called Totems.
The classical tall units can be equipped with internal shelves and built-in appliances, while the wall units boast open shelving in glass and a touch-to-open single steel door.
Configurable to the user’s needs, the Totems are supported by a metal frame structure in testa di mora finish, which has also been chosen for the plinth, c-channels and base unit legs.
They echo the wall-hung furniture, with the storage compartments combining wood and crystal in balance between different densities and materials.
Take a look at the wider trends for kitchens in 2021.
