What is functional is also beautiful. One of the main assumptions of the Modern Movement perfectly describes a neat environment with bold geometries.
For this house in the French countryside, the restyling was required to respect the allure of a place steeped in history, but at the same time deeply rooted in the contemporary: the refined contrast between the majolica tiles enlivening the walls and the austere palette of furniture and appliances is a choice based on this perfect balance.
Bright and essential, the modern kitchen, with its dark, almost churchly colour, finely embodies the domestic altar: the central island, illuminated by Vitra’s Potence, lightly dominates a cosy yet austere interior.
In this interplay of counterpoints, the role of the appliances in ILVE’s Professional Plus collection carries great weight: giving the professional face of AISI304 steel to a country kitchen is a choice that puts performance at the forefront.
Star Column and side-by-side refrigerator are a kitchen brigade of the highest level: on the one hand, a free-standing structure in black tempered glass with matte black finishes, consisting of an Ultracombi trivalent oven, blast chiller and sous-vide, and on the other a matte charcoal refrigerator with matte black finishes, capacious and functional, just like those used in the best restaurants.
The 90 cm induction hob is undoubtedly the king of the island: simple and elegant design for a safe and easy-to-use system that makes use of the best technologies, a discreet presence that adds a further contemporary touch to the room.
Beauty once again reveals itself in the relationship between design and purpose, between pure aesthetics and function. Every detail is a key part of a whole playing in unison, in a design that is above all a life project.
