You would likely not doubt the Nucleo MMXII Kitchen to be a product of contemporary design; however, it must be known that many of the materials that compose it are actually antiques. Part of the Souvenir of the Last Century series, this luxurious food preparation furnishing is complete with the scars of its past lives.

Chips in the magnificent marble and scratches on the steel I-beams suggest what functions these components might have had previously. Today, the gorgeous stone has been turned into an elegant and continuous surface that marries the hot stovetop with the cool sink basin. This heavy piece has been installed on top of the rationally composed metal structure. An alloy countertop increases the culinary workspace of the Nucleo MMXII Kitchen and becomes part of the seductive multi-era design.
