NATURAL SKIN | Solid wood kitchen
Linear solid wood fitted kitchen
Silvio Stefani, R&S Minacciolo
Natural Skin is not just a kitchen furnishing program; it is a new way of conceiving the rooms in the home. A line conceived to meet the needs of the modern lifestyle, both to simplify it and to deliver functionality with extreme elegance, at an accessible price.
Natural Skin revolutionises space: the sculptured purity of its monoliths subdivides and defines the various rooms within the home with no need for walls, offering unusual, practical storage solutions. Elegance as well as function, provided by a natural, warm cladding that envelopes the total black structure. The clear geometry of its lines and proportions is ideal for creating volumes given a rhythmic regularity by discreet metal inserts. A line designed for living-spaces with a perfect synthesis of nature and modern technology. Tactile surfaces and smooth metal merge within a higher harmony.
Natural Skin is a practical kitchen, intended to allow versatile use of any living-space. With Natural Skin even small-sized island or wall-mounted compositions can be created with all the geometric clarity of lines and proportions distinctive to this collection. The doors, in a variety of finishes but all with a strongly tactile character, range from wood to sophisticated whole-colour shades, and are combined with a vast assortment of worktops in a large number of original materials. The collection also includes tall units and monoliths that conceal pantries and appliances and can serve as real partition walls.
As an alternative to heat-treated wood, Natural Skin unit doors will be presented in their newest version: they will be also available in through-coloured high-density wood composite boards, fire-resistant and water repellent. The outer surface can be finished in several types of wood, in fabric, or with a tough, innovative coating with colours all inherited from nature’s palette. This coating is made of material which is acquired from the use of nanotechnology and the newest generation of resins which make all surfaces smooth and matte, anti-fingerprint, scratch and abrasion resistant, water repellent and antibacterial.
