The combination of vertical and horizontal structures; open and closed elements; and light and dark materials creates an attractive tension in this apartment, emphasized by the contrasting lines of the kitchen island and ceiling-high shelves. The shelf acts as a room divider, yet at the same time forms a link between cooking and living areas. The "solitaire" planning of the individual design elements together with the fresh green of herbs and plants form a comfortable concept that invites you to cook together and savor. No details are identical, but it all fits together. Shapes, colors, materials and volume of individual elements make for a composed kitchen island that is contrasting yet harmonious. An example of the new latitude you will open up for your own ideas when you plan and customize with SieMatic.
