Today I’ve been looking at kitchens. I’ve been looking for this one in particular to the point of distraction. You know when you’ve seen something somewhere and you think ‘I’ll find that again’? Well the big news is that the world wide web is a huge place and that’s pretty darn optimistic. Turns out that the page was saved on my ipad. How did I not look at all of my electronic devices for the past entire day?
So, I’ve fallen head over heals in a big way for this kitchen by tec Architecture and Marcel Wanders in Casa Son Vida in Mallorca. This is my dream environment where traditional forms have been given the ultimate twist – over scaled Gustavian style cabinets masquerading as free standing pieces of furniture with sculptural undulating mouldings and ornate brassware spray lacquered for over the top drama. To balance the bold, the central island (equipped with all of the bits that actually make this a kitchen) is a white ‘block’ and this pureness plays down its existence to let the two heroes do the talking. Total eye candy.
