The Ola20 Kitchen Complements the Grace of a Gifted Cook

Food preparation areas have long been left behind as the most utilitarian-looking rooms within homes. The Ola20 Kitchen transforms the convention of aesthetic practicality with a system of surfaces and supports that behave like sculptures.

A heavy bank of closed cabinetry contributes valuable storage space to the modern cuisine, but this row of metallic cupboards has been modeled as a monolithic mass, elegantly expressed with smooth flush surfaces and stylish rounded edges.

The pièce de résistance in the Snaidero and Pininfarina Ola20 Kitchen is the exquisite cantilevered countertop. It extends the working bench with a dynamic and light-footed form, propped up by a fluent U-shaped brace. While it brings beauty and lissomness to the bulk of culinary appliances, this statuesque element acts as a practical surface for meal prep and the perfect place to pull up a barstool.
