In Portugal, a luxurious private residence is home to the latest project by Officine Gullo. It’s a dream kitchen, made entirely from the finest materials, such as high-thickness stainless steel for the structure, powder coated in an original Pastel Blue shade. The colour choice is a tribute to one of the best-known decorative arts in Portugal, azulejos, whose bright hues, especially in shades of blue and white, are interspersed with the light ceramic surfaces, sparking ever-changing geometric motifs. The colour occupies centre stage, expertly paired with burnished brass finishes, such as trims, handles and details. The burnishing, conducted strictly by the skilled hands of the company’s craftspeople, bestows texture on the brass, which acquires characterful contrasts with every passing day. The elegant antique forms are sublimely matched with up-to-the-minute sophisticated kitchen technology. The kitchen comes equipped with the very best professional refrigeration and cooking appliances. One of the company’s goals is the creation of a “home restaurant”, enabling every customer to cook at home in the same way that a chef does at a restaurant. All the cooking elements are capable of professional performance, yet are manufactured according to the principles of household ergonomics for everyday home use with the utmost convenience. Due to their design, non-professional cooks can use all of the available functions. In detail, the project consists of a linear kitchen with striking walls (4 metres), whose upper part vaunts: two steel wall surfaces at the ends, an induction stove, a range with 6 high-performance gas burners, a coup de feu, and a smooth and grooved fry top.
