Neff, a brand beloved of budding
gourmet chefs, presents a sneak
preview at Eurocucina 2010 of its
new FlexInduction T44T43N0
hob, which does just what its
name says it does. Thanks to
the flexible cooking area, which
covers half the cooktop surface
and measures 760 cm2, several
cooking receptacles ranging
in size from one-cup espresso pots to casserole dishes can be used at the same
time, as needs dictate to prepare different dishes at the same time.
Added to this flexibility there is also the extra speed typical of induction cooking not coincidentally the method preferred by professional chefs - which Neff has
now further stepped up thanks to the Power function that reduces cooking times
from 30% to 60%. Meanwhile, Neff’s Powermanagement function adapts the heat
absorbed to the timer, without affecting performance and cooking results.
The FlexInduction hob is also equipped with the exclusive TwistPad ® knob,
a removable magnetised control that allows the user to keep all the hob’s
functions under control with a single gesture.
When the knob is removed, all the cooking areas still in use are switched off
automatically, leaving the surface free for easy cleaning.

THE MAIN AIM IS TO MAKE IT EASIER TO WORK IN AND MOVE
AROUND THE KITCHEN’S CENTRAL FUNCTIONAL BLOCK. ISLAND UNITS
TO PREPARE, COOK AND EAT AT, BUT ALSO PLACES TO MEET AND TALK.
BREAKFAST
ISLAND
by Paola Leone
The island unit is a place of the spirit, as well as
a self-enclosed world unto itself in which activities
normally done in unlimited spaces are necessarily
confined to a well-defined space. Generally speaking
the island unit is the central functional heart of the home
kitchen. Here we prepare, wash and cook food, and eat
breakfast and lunch, very often with more than one
activity going on at the same time. Clearly, then,
the design of a breakfast bar needs to be studied down
to the last detail: here everything has to be compact,
without a single centimetre of space wasted, all in
the name of making it easier to work and move around.
And the new kitchen blocks not only mean efficient
preparation areas, but often also places to enjoy
an aperitif, a snack or a quick meal in company.
The three most fashionable kinds of island unit right
now are those with a snack bar higher than the worktop
(90/92 cm off the ground), those with snack-tops
designed as a continuation of the countertop and those
equipped with an actual dining table that can be used
at breakfast, lunch and dinner time. One particularly
interesting solution in this regard is the solution designed
for the City model, from Doimo Cucine, which offers
2 | ambientecucinaproject | March April 2010 | issue 7
a smart take on the kitchen living space concept.
It is a table that extracts manually from the side
of the island, with the advantage of folding tidily
away out of sight when the space is being used as
a living-room. And the City table comes in two lengths
- 90 and 160 cm - in proportion to the length of
the kitchen block into which it is to fit.
Snack bars designed as continuations of the worktop,
meanwhile, can be found on designs from Poggenpohl
and Scavolini, while Euromobil and Aster have designed
islands with long cantilevered snack bars.
Other snack bars are designed as spaces in their own
right, their top slightly higher than the island worktop,
such as the Loggia model, from Copat, featuring new
materials and luxury finishes and an elegantly new classic
style, as well as from Snaidero, an ergonomic
and technological gem, on which the dual-height
surfaces appear in a beautifully fluid polished steel,
laid as if like a piece of fabric over the island.
Similarly “soft” is the mirror shelf-hood over the worktop
in which it is reflected, its LED spotlights
(designed by the Fiat Auto research centre) creating
gleaming surfaces everywhere.
T
+SEGMENTO
Characterised by
its explicitly architectural
style, the +Segmento
system, is one
of Poggenpohl’s flagship
models and the winner
of the Chicago
Athenaeum’s Good Design
Award. The style features
structural sides in brushed,
extra-thick stainless steel,
which are welded to the
more slimline steel
worktops. The spacer
element between
the worktop and floor units
is solid aluminium as
are the handles of the tall
units, which fit into
the upper edge of the
front. Note also the elegant
combination of the
stainless steel on
the pillars and the dark,
vertically-veined oak of
the base and column units
(ergonomic in their height),
which provide storage
space and housings for
the electrical appliances.

VENUS
Fluid movement is the main feature of Venus, a kitchen designed
by Pininfarina, which has successfully created a highly theatrical effect
thanks to new forms and materials and an innovative use of light.
This expressive power blends with the soft contouring of the cabinets
and floor units, worktops and shelves above, in symmetrical or parallel
arrangements. The tall and base units, which are of different depths,
are joined by connecting elements that create curving movement on the
composition. The photo shows the snack-bar with a curry-yellow gloss
lacquered finish, combined with matt ebony cabinetry comprising
larder units (length: 120 cm, depth: 72 cm), connecting tall units
and standard tall units.
Fronts - available finishes

Snack island features
The original snack-bar (304x142 cm;

top that follows the two different surface heights.
On the breakfast side the base units
are fitted with storage compartments.
The aluminium honeycomb shelf (thickness:
12 mm) has built-in LED spotlighting.

CONTEMPORA NEXT
Designed for modern, evolved
living spaces Contempora Next is
a system built to furnish open-plan
kitchens that share the same space
as the living-room. Base, column
and wall units are designed
as sectional elements that
offer virtually unlimited design
possibilities, with various
heights and depths to suit any
compositional requirement.
The model also features a wide
range of finishes for the fronts,
also in glossy lacquered glass,
selected finishes for the fronts
and the top shown in the picture.
The hub of the space is
the breakfast-lunch island,
with its overhead chandelier.
This stands out distinctly from the
rest of the kitchen because of both
the material used - polished
stainless steel - and the lightweight
visual feel of its surfaces.

LOGGIA LUXURY
A kitchen with a charming
nostalgic feel, Loggia now
appears in the new Luxury
version, a classic-looking
system that blends tradition
and technology with an
added touch of glamour.
The new colours and details
create furnishing features that
also fit well into contemporary
lifestyles and spaces.
These include the exquisitely
finished island and breakfast
bar, with framed fronts in black
lacquered Antiquariato finished
with silver internal profiles,
a feature echoed in
the antique-finish handles.
The interestingly-shaped edge
of the top and under-counter
strip feature an attractive
carved geometric pattern.
Fronts - available finishes
Luxury fronts: antique-effect

CITY
Designed for the metropolitan kitchen, as its
name suggests, City is a simply contoured
system designed for flexible habitats and
kitchens that open onto the living space.
The cabinetry and central island have
wengé-stained oak fronts and white laminate
top with wengé-stained trims that match the
fronts. The units open by means of a grooved
fingergrip, horizontal on the base units
and vertical on the tall units. To satisfy
ergonomic requirements, the floor units
come in a standard height (72 cm plus 10
or 15 cm plinth) or can be taller (81 cm plus
6 cm plinth). The tall units also come
in two heights: 204 cm and 213 cm.
Fronts - available finishes
Lacquered in 29 colours, gloss acrylic
in 4 colours, natural or wengé-stained oak,
white, dove, black, anthracite and red.
Top - available finishes
Stainless steel, Corian, Unicolor, laminate
with trim in the same finish as the fronts.
Snack island features
The island unit is L-shaped, with a lowered
base unit providing storage, and a taller one
at right angles to it, with washing and cooking,
equipped with a pull-out table (70 cm in width
and 90 or 160 cm in length), which, after use
returns into is storage housing in the side.

SCENERY
Scenery, the kitchen as a “stage” is a design project that conveys
a whole new concept of the kitchen as the hub of family and social
relations, a space to show off that blends into the living-room.
King&Miranda have gone for luxury finishes and designed
new elements such as the hood which also provides a complete
air conditioning service. The version pictured is in a metropolitan
style, with shiny black glass fronts and handle created
in the thickness of the upper edge. The fronts of the wall units
are enhanced with the Microline Lustro decorative surface
and also feature a fingergrip grooved opening on their lower edge.

LACLIP
The Laclip model takes its
name from its intriguingly
shaped handle, which is
loosely based on the form
of the office paper clip.
The version of Laclip
pictured is an elaborate
arrangement in which the
generous space devoted
to the kitchen interacts
directly with the
relaxation area,
an interpretation of
Euromobil’s “living and
cooking” philosophy.
There are interesting new
finishes for the fronts,
in thermo-structured
chocolate-coloured
open-pore oak melamine,
with a textured surface
featuring a slightly
embossed veined pattern.
The composition is
enhanced by the wall
units with FiloAlass fronts,

In keeping with new lifestyles, the interest in gourmet
cooking and the pleasures of receiving friends and family
in the welcoming spaces of the home we need roomy
appliances to store large quantities of food
in the best way possible for as long as possible.
Today’s new models mean fewer trips to the supermarket,
saving on time and fuel costs, to say nothing of the
environmental advantages of spending less time in
the car. Today’s maxi cold storage has to offer maxi
- almost professional - performance features so that
the individual requirements of the various types of food
stored are respected, with separate compartments
for meat, fish, cheese and fresh vegetables to store them
at the temperature and humidity level best suited to them
so they do not lose any of their freshness, appearance
or flavour. The most advanced products also meet
the highest expectations in terms of aesthetics and
technology, and are built using high-quality materials
that are specially sanitised on the fridge interior side
to deodorize the appliance and keep out bacteria.
Finally, these appliances are designed to suit the most
demanding consumers: an attractive addition to the
kitchen, whether as a free-standing or built-in solution,
finished in stainless steel or, if requested, supplied to take
personalised panels to match the adjoining units,
thus offering interior architects and furnishers plenty
of freedom with their compositions.

SQUARES AND RECTANGLES IN AN INTERPLAY OF CHANGING FORMS. WITH
THE REMARKABLE HANDLE CARVED INTO THE DOOR CREATED FOR THE KITCHEN
INSIDE
FRONTS BY MARC SADLER, ERNESTOMEDA’S CARRÉ SYSTEM IS A KITCHEN
WITH A MULTI-SIDED CHARACTER THAT LOOKS GOOD IN ANY INTERIOR SPACE
AND CAN BE COMPOSED IN A VARIETY OF WAYS TO SUIT PERSONAL TASTES.
by Paola Leone
The handle
is the distinctive feature
of Marc Sadler’s
new kitchen: instead
of the traditional
handgrip it becomes
a hollowed section
of the front, elegant
and functional,
and creating
contrasting geometric
effects on the fronts
and floor units.
The Carré front comes
in a wide range
of finishes: gloss
lacquer (46 colours)
and matt lacquer
(46 colours), olive
or rosewood veneer
and semi-gloss steel.
THE FIRM Excellence in a “business format”:
this is a good definition of Ernestomeda,
one of Italy’s leading kitchen manufacturers,
where design, technology, quality and product
development have converged to give rise
to ten quite unique collections.
Founded in 1966 in Montelabbate, where
it is still located (the plant covers a surface
area of over 32,000 square metres), since
the mid-1990s Ernestomeda has drawn
on the services of some of the biggest Italian
and international design names, constructing
a very precise style heavily geared towards
innovation, so much so in fact that the brand
has become a beacon of new stylistic
and design trends for the entire kitchen
and furnishings sector.
With Castiglia Associati, Pietro Arosio
and Rodolfo Dordoni, Ernestomeda has
created highly successful models such
as Silverbox, the celebrated kitchen in staved
aluminium, Elektra a system of great elegance
and formal restraint, and Barrique,
a sophisticated transposition of wine and food
culture, while with “superstar” designers
Zaha Hadid and Jean Nouvel, Ernestomeda
has pursued a path of experimentation leading
to the production of some extremely advanced
creations. The first project of this kind is
Z.Island, by Zaha Hadid, which since 2006 has
been on show at the Guggenheim in New York:
an island “of ice” in which Corian becomes
a fluid material constructing a hi-tech,
futuristic kitchen unit full of LEDs, USB points,
mp3 players, CDs and DVDs. The other
outstanding project was designed by
Jean Nouvel in 2007: Corian Nouvel Lumières
is a home environment with amazing light
effects featuring incandescently rear-lit Corian
surfaces. Design of the highest order, then,
is what Ernestomeda is all about - an approach
seen also in the ultra-compact, ultra-efficient
kitchens created with Yacht Division: no detail
was overlooked in the design of its kitchens
or “galleys” for yachts, mega-yachts
and other pleasure craft in collaboration
with the Custom Line, CRN and Pershing
(Ferretti Group) shipyards.
Ernestomeda kitchens are displayed
in numerous multi-brand interior design stores
in Italy and abroad as well as in the various
single-brand showrooms in some of the
world’s big cities: Milano, Bari, Florence,
Madrid, Athens, Lugano, Chicago, Los Angeles
and Seoul, where from next summer Marc
Sadler’s latest creation, the Carré model,
will also be on display.

Marc Sadler,
designer of Carré.
Total living, semi
country, or even
“all-white” for less
daring users: Carré
caters to a whole
range of interior
design needs.
The Layer worktop
(patented) has three
layers in different
materials: Corian,
Unicolor laminate,
marble or granite,
quartz, steel, Okite.
For the extremities
of the floor and tall
units, the open shelving
with a gloss or matt
lacquered finish
in standard colours
create continuity
between the kitchen
and living areas.
DESIGN “Many people say they hate
the rigid structure of minimalist kitchens
and agree that the kitchen is the home
owner’s most representative reception space,
and as a result often embellished
with personal items, family heirlooms and
travel souvenirs: this is the starting point
for Carré, which, if I had to define it in one
word, I would call ‘multi-faceted’ to explain
its many different qualities.”
These are the words of Marc Sadler,
designer of the new Carré kitchen system.
As he himself explains, it is capable
of interpreting the different spaces into
which it is built and the lifestyles of its users.
Carré’s secret lies in its versatility, which
enables it to blend easily into different
interior design concepts, from city living
spaces to the “semi-country” kitchens
of homes in rural areas.
And the detail around which this versatility
hinges, as well as the distinguishing feature
of the model is the handle carved into the
door, an arrangement of bas-relief squares
and rectangles that intertwine to create
different geometric figures with a total
of no fewer than ten different combinations
possible. With it, everyone can create their
own version of Carré and design its fronts,
taking advantage of the almost limitless
choice of available finishes for the fronts
and for the bas-relief handle carved into the
door: 46 gloss or matt lacquered shades.
In additions, the backs of the handles also
come in steel, rosewood or olive wood.
Carré is, then, designed to be put together
to suit personal tastes.
Sadler likens it to a “bitmap image made up
of a series of pixels that can change the final
overall effect.”
à www.ernestomeda.it
TECHNOLOGY The new models comes
at the end of three years of studies
and experimentation that exploited
to the full the opportunities for composition
offered by Ermestomeda kitchen systems,
offering a creative design backed up
by high-end technology that expressing itself
in the system’s strongest feature, the fronts,
which are made using craft production
techniques. To create the hollows that form
the handles, the fronts are milled using
an exclusive manufacturing process.
Attached to the back of the milled panel
is a smaller panel that forms the back
of the handle and is interchangeable, since
it is secured to the front using Torks screws
that bear the Ernestomeda logo and
can be changed at any time to change the
material appearance or colour of the kitchen.
There are dozens of different finishes
to choose from, to create a one-colour or
contrasting two-tone look with the handles.
And that’s not all that can be varied on Carré.
With the three-tiered layering system
(patented) it is possible to create everchanging solutions using materials combined
variously together, such as Corian, Unicolor
laminate, marble and granite, quartz, steel
and Okite. Besides this there are the end
pieces for the base and tall units - 126, 198,
234 and 252 cm in height - featuring open
shelving that can be used, say, as a
bookcase, while the painted sheet metal
Regent hood, created by Sadler exclusively
for Ernestomeda, uses LED lighting, houses
a filter-extractor motor with a power of
1,000 m3/h, is operated from a Soft Touch
electronic control panel and comes in ice,
black and Nuance red. A feature that gives
the kitchen that extra touch of class.

SEAMLESS ELEGANCE
AND DESIGN
The result of a lengthy
research and development
process carried out
by a team of experts
at Cosentino and numerous
lab tests carried out by
external certification bodies,
the new range of Integrity
sinks integrate perfectly
and seamlessly into
Silestone® worktops.
Integrity by Cosentino®
is currently available
in the One model
(41x51x15.5 cm), produced
in the extensive range
of Silestone® colours.
Made from a single piece
of the material, it offers
the same excellent physical
properties and has a totally
uniform appearance
throughout, with no joints
or weak points.
This was made possible
by the creation of a new
manufacturing technology
which has also simplified
installation and maintenance
operations.
THE MATERIAL
Silestone®, a brand owned
by the Spanish multinational
Cosentino, is to be found
in some of the most
prestigious locations around
the world, such as the Hotel
Burj Al Arab in Dubai,
the new Wembley Stadium
in London, the Carrousel
du Louvre in Paris, the Agbar
Tower in Barcelona
and Telefónica’s flagship store
in Madrid. Silestone is
a surfacing material made
of hygienic quartz, which
prevents the formation
of harmful bacteria.
This naturally makes
it an ideal choice for all
surfaces in kitchens,
bathrooms, bars and also
for floors in homes,
shops, hospitals etc.
Available in thicknesses
of 12, 20 and 30 mm,
Silestone® is highly resistant
to scratching and staining.
Available in over 60 colours,
it is often the very best
choice for a range
of different requirements.
Made from over 94% natural
quartz, Silestone® creates
some truly beautiful
worktops that offer
matchless technical features.

THE COSENTINO GROUP CONTINUES TO DEMONSTRATE ITS CAPACITY
FOR INNOVATION IN THE PRODUCTION OF NATURAL STONE ITEMS WITH SENSA,
A UNIQUE AND ENTIRELY EXCLUSIVE PRODUCT FOR THE MARKET
There’s a revolution going on
in the natural stone business.
Permeability to staining,
which has always been
the weakness of granite
and other stone products,
is a thing of the past now
that there is Sensa by
Cosentino®, a new granite
surface brand featuring a
water-repellent, anti-staining
finish. We all know that
granite is one of the most
heavy duty and durable
natural materials, but
Cosentino wanted to give
it that property it had been
missing until now: stain
resistance. It has done so
through a revolutionary
treatment that involves
adding a chemical binder
to the material to alter
the stone’s surface tension,
giving it invisible, but
air-permeable protection
without sealing off the pores
completely. Water, oil, wine
and all other substances
that come into contact
with the kitchen worktop
are prevented from
penetrating the surface
and can simply be wiped off.
SIZE
Sensa comes in a range
of up to 15 different
colours, in slabs measuring
a minimum of 2.5x1.5
metres and a choice
of two thicknesses:
2 or 3 centimetres.
Sensa granite
is guaranteed for 10 years
and can also be used
outdoors, given that it is
also resistant to UV light
so there is no change
to its appearance,
feel and durability.
CERTIFICATION
This product has been
awarded NSF certification,
which means it has been
deemed a material suitable
for contact with food,
and it also carries the
Greenguard seal of approval
guaranteeing its conformity
to the indoor air quality
standards defined by the
North American
Environmental Institute. It
also carries the Greenguard
Children&Schools certificate,
indicating its suitability for
use in educational buildings.
