Although the exterior is a shimmering white, the interior provides the user with the freedom to customize it with contrasting colors such as a dark purple or a warm zinc yellow. In addition, the unique and flexible properties of the Corian allow it to be molded into any desired shape.
Inspired by round, natural shapes and strong, monolithic elements; the elegantly shaped front doubles as a hand grip. Gentle to the touch, it the handle reminds of an inviting hand gesture. The harmonious shapes are perceived to radiate a natural flow of energy. The round shapes are supported by strong, mono-block storage elements with a clean and seamless look that seemingly continues from the counter to the floor, creating a pure geometry.
The “vertical garden” help user’s grow organic herbs right in the kitchen. Hygienic and easy to clean, the herb planters do not accumulate dirt and germs. The properties of the materials used also prevent the growth of mold.
