What do people choosing a kitchen need and what are their starting conditions? There are so many answers.
We looked at living spaces first. There are open space lofts but also smaller apartments which need to be functional with carefully selected details, while still “carving out” corners and exploiting every centimetre of living space. Without abandoning its well-known collections, Callesella’s Fly Project goes into the city, opening up to a constantly shifting multi-coloured cosmopolitan urban setting, full of people with a diverse range of professions, interests, needs and wants. People who want what they like to be seen.
Arrangements and shapes, however large or small, allow free positioning of elements on existing walls or in absence of walls. Free-standing units, like a sideboard or open shelving unit, can become room dividers to create functional zones or be part of the overall living space.
Among the many solutions, Fly in “Aged Straw” captures my ideal kitchen because it’s inviting, with lots of wood, used for units, wall panelling, double face shelving,
perfect in the liquorice shade.
An industrial feature I wanted for the shallow and deep drawers with shaped rust finish iron handles.
Focus on a detail: the accessory rack with wooden shelf and glass insert.
There’s an element that makes the difference, so the design becomes practical. What do you say about the Fly model cooker hood? The woodframed slate door front tilts up and opens to inner compartments you can fill with whatever you need to keep handy, but discreetly hidden. In full view is the wood-framed steel drainer shelf, more of a subject than an object. Like the panelling in irregular horizontal slats and the “Aged Straw” finish work bench. A unique match.
