Maurice Padovani + TANDEM

Interior designer

Le Prado
The kitchen is composed of two fully white-lacquered parallel blocks. Both are apart from the walls around them as well in order to give them a status of independent pieces of furniture and not the one of an integrated system. The block in the back, taller and longer, is essentially devoted to the storing of implements, dishes and supplies. The low islet serves as a functional bar for the dish washing, the preparation and the cooking. The islet's worktop is a simple zinc sheet framed in an aluminium angle bracket which slight gap with the piece's body accentuates the suspension effect. Two suspended Diesel's Rock lamps (Foscarini) light the top. At the other end of the islet, the Elica Tandem stainless hood complements the device. To serve the extending oak table, the chairs "la Leggera" by Ricardo Blummer (Alias). The table is enlightened by the short version of Twiggy, the contemporary alternative to Achille Castiglioni's classic Arco.
