The guiding aim of this project was to loosen up the feel of the kitchen by mixing materials and shapes. Key is the curved bar – the shape of a diving dolphin - that supports the chopping block while pivoting from a pillar. With this swivelling movement the Plexwood (thin wooden strips strongly bonded) and aluminium horizontal surface meets all sorts of needs. It can be a breakfast bar, a servery or a drinks bar. Light to move, a pad underneath polishes the floor as it sweeps.
Looking into the kitchen, the sink cabinet is flanked by two aluminium wings, the architecture working sympathetically with the cabinetry to provide a framed experience. This arrangement conceals behind it a walk-in pantry, keeping the kitchen relatively free from storage cupboards. There is plenty of room for a generous seating area and a big family table.
