Zaha Hadid Design, the interior design arm of the architecture superfirm Zaha Hadid Architects, and Boffi, an Italian furniture studio, have teamed up to create the Boffi_Code Kitchen, a sleek kitchen island. The custom piece is built primarily from white Corian, an acrylic polymer known for its smooth, stainless, and seamless qualities.
Aside from the Corian that makes up the majority of the Boffi_Code Kitchen's surfaces, the doors are available in wood, matte lacquer Ecolak, and polyester glossy lacquered stainless steel. Further, the sink is surrounded by a marble or stone countertops. The only seams on the entire island are thus between the different materials, as each surface was chosen to be as smooth as possible.
The design of the island is meant to evoke the appearance of architectural structures like Rome's MAXXI Museum of Art and Baku's cultural center.
