The technological resources acquired in the production of household appliances have been extended to the conception of the entire kitchen system and at the same time the appliances have been given the characteristics of a furnishing element. Each technical module is already born with an industrial criteria, ready to be integrated with the furnishing part and without being manipulated to adapt each time to the different models.
To complete the system there is a chair in plastic and steel rod.
Being finished also in the rear part, the elements allow solutions in closed compartment or in open form giving the possibility for an infinite number of compositions: island, peninsula, corner, wall, for small and large environments.
The electrical and plumbing systems are simple and hidden. Particular functional devices are resolved in detail as for example the basket of the dishwasher is interchangeable with furniture containers or as the under-cabinet containers of aeronautical derivation.
