Re-imagining the Kitchen

This Special Edition piece was designed and constructed to showcase how a modern kitchen can be designed to reflect today’s lifestyle.

At the same time illustrating the creativity, quality and attention to detail which clients can expect when purchasing a FrancoCrea™ product.

In keeping with my signature minimal aesthetic, the kitchen features a range of construction materials including a statement-island constructed entirely from Corian, a chemically inert, non-toxic, renewable and repairable material that reflects my commitment to environmental, social and economical sustainability.

  • Cabinet Storage Unit
