Milano Design Week 2023


"Skin is the name we have chosen for the new .Elmar kitchen system. We have designed a frame, which is also the handle of the system. Everyone has such a direct experience of the handle that they don't care, like those gestures we are used to making without thinking about it, we go in and out without pausing, but if we go to its essence, the handle is synonymous with freedom.The thrill of discovery when the wine cellar opens during an informal business meeting, the colors of the vegetables that flood the space while preparing dinner together, the scent of a surprise cake prepared for the arrival of the kids after the school that pervades the room… It's that handle, that detail we don't care about, that little sign that gives us these emotions. In conceiving the new Skin kitchen for .Elmar, we started from the handle because the handle is the very moment that puts the kitchen and its skin in relation. The handle draws also the structure of Skin. Horizontal. Vertical. aligned. At intervals. An open structure to be freely completed with richness of the materials of the doors (wood, steel, glass) or with flavors, smells and colors that explode at the touch of the hand. The Skin system is then a skin in the richest sense of the term" - Carlo Cappai, Maria Alessandra Segantini
