FROM THE EARTH
Go for gold in the kitchen with the latest import from Italy thanks to Scavolini.
Owners Wanda and Teresa spied this jaw-dropping design while in Italy and both
fell for it. Called the Crystal in Gold/Espresso, the pair loved it for different reasons:
Wanda for the colour hit and Teresa because, while colourful, it’s stylish. “The colours
are from the earth – beautiful golds and browns and bronzes,” Teresa says. “It’s
sophisticated-but-natural, so is a timeless option and a safe alternative to creams and
browns.” She adds that the gold colour looks like gold leaf in real life. So Kalgoorlie!
A price guide for this design is from $21,000/8Lm for cabinetry, some internal
accessories and installation. Scavolini (08) 9385 4575, www.scavolini.com .
WHAT A GAS
Internationally acclaimed designer Marc Newson
has teamed with Smeg to bring his innovation
and style to the kitchen. Called the Marc Newson
range, it harnesses his love of colour and his
appreciation for enamel in pyrolytic ovens and
gas cooktops that come in yellow, Pistachio
Green and Peacock Blue. While a colour hit for
the kitchen, it was also important for Marc that
they be simple to use. “One of the things I was
determined to do was position the controls in
exactly the same layout as the burners. No silly
maps describing which thing corresponds to
what,” he says. Price to be set. GBI Sales (08) 9478
There’s a lot of built-in out there, but
everyone still loves the nostalgia and
commercial look of the freestanding oven.
For amateur cooks, Glem has released its
Monolith 90cm cooker with a gas cooktop
and fan-assisted gas oven – just like the
chefs use. While ‘Masterchef worthy’ on
the cooking front, it’s also a winner in the
environmental stakes: natural gas cookers
can cut household energy costs. Priced at
$3299. Emilia Glem 1300 307 917,
The new gas-fired Monolith cooker:
a winner in style and eco circles.
Now here’s some design inspiration...
We’ve long been dressed by Giorgio Armani,
and now he’s upping the aesthetic of our
day-to-day living spaces, too, with Armani/
Dada. A partnership between the stylemeister
himself and the Molteni Group, it’s a
reinterpretation of the Armani look and feel
for the hub of the home. Checkers, pictured
here, is his third collection and features
stained Santos wood, bronze millerighe glass
and aluminium edging. We love the geometric
forms, evocative colours and resulting pure
timeless style. His previous releases have
met with success, so we expect to see more
designers dressing the kitchen in the future.
