SALINAS By Boffi
Kitchen with island
For the first time in Germany, Boffi presents Salinas, the kitchen designed by Patricia Urquiola, and the first kitchen designed for outdoor use Open, by Piero Lissoni.
Salinas is a light and sustainable kitchen. You can see its iron structure, made in a rigorous way and getting a series of supporting and closure materials.
'Several companies have asked me to design kitchens, but for various reasons I have always found it difficult and I never did. Before having my own studio, 15/20 years ago, I used to work with Lissoni, who had already worked with Boffi, a company that I loved so much.
For the wooden countertops I chose oversized boards that can be moved according to your needs, be it cooking or sitting, allowing you to “throw together” a table and say: Let’s sit and eat!
We've added a canal with different functions. It keeps the shelves and taps with a very tidy system, but it also includes a drainage system for the cups that can also keep the plants watered. It also contains all the necessary electrical connections and it can be ultimately used as a container.'
In addition to the technical aspects of this project, there is the love for the most sensual of materials, such as solid wood. The fired lava with a geometric relief becomes a tactile element.
The doors are made of thin zinc - nothing has a thickness greater than 6 mm - PaperStone® or copper.
