Al fresco cooking is a much more pleasant experience, given adequate equipment. The home chef will certainly not be left wanting with the Artusi Island Kitchen installed on his back porch, for it offers a range of practical amenities that you're used to only finding inside.

Antonio Citterio's setup is as sleek and durable as its industrial appearance suggests, having been manufactured by Arclinea from stainless steel. The piece incorporates a sink, a generous gas-operated barbecue with dial controls and plenty of deep storage spaces.

These compartments beneath the hardwearing countertop are thermally insulated so that you can stash cold and hot food and rest assured that their temperatures will be maintained. The edges of the drawers and cupboards of the Artusi Island Kitchen are also sealed to prevent the entry of rainwater and insects.
