The Aprile kitchen is a project designed to emphasise the value of using natural materials. The kitchen is planned using new treated wood finishes, stainless steel and stone in different thicknesses, creating new solutions for worktops and peninsular eating areas. Extractor hoods use an innovative externally vented system, and the project is further complemented by stainless steel legs on breakfast bar tops in solid wood. Top-mounted units are available with open face or sliding door options, with integrated lighting and available in different finishes; they can be used between worktop and bar top as well. The project uses standard existing specifications and sizing for the carcasses, with the benefits this brings for unified modular integration. The doors are made of solid wood staves in several widths and thicknesses, in order to create a 3d effect with the handle - which is built into the thickness of the door. The doors are treated with natural oil.
