Obliqua is a kitchen with a well balanced yet strongly characterful image, named after the special "oblique" angle of the doors and worktops. Obliqua combines simple forms, patterns and materials and a craftsman-like attention to details. Simple, elegant design expressed through a continuity of colour, with use of a single finish for the worktops, groove strips, doors and plinths. Layouts may also include an integral table, available in a variety of finishes, most impressively the Deluxe solid woods, which give the design scheme a warm, welcoming mood.
In fact, carefully chosen materials are a key feature of Obliqua. This focus acquires new meaning in the choice of these woods, obtained from surplus railway sleepers found in old sheds, to which Ernestomeda has given new life while leaving their original appearance characteristics (from vein patterning to their variations in colour), all created by the natural action of time and weather, completely intact.
The portfolio of finishes also includes high-tech materials - like FenixNTMTM - and the very innovative biomalta. This is a high-performance acrylic resin which is extremely hard-wearing and adaptable to any surface - from wood to stainless steel, and from marble to aluminium. Bio-resin is also breathable and flame-retardant, and its colours do not fade. Since it is applied by hand, the details of this coating are constantly fresh, making every composition unique and unrepeatable.
This kitchen's elegant appearance is supported by outstanding convenience, in features such as the large worktop and the easy door opening ensured by the vertical groove strips and the distinctive oblique-angled shape. What's more, Obliqua can be used in combination with the Indoor cupboard systems, customisable with pull-out worktops and back panels in various finishes, which also can be equipped with removable power sockets. The interiors can be fitted with a range of accessories - from an espresso coffee-maker to a wine cellar refrigerator - and handy baskets, available in the same colours as the doors.
