Keeping it warm and homely
It all started when a leading global group, specialised in a wide range of activities - including the production of food products – was eager to show its products in an inspiring culinary setting. That’s when real. space agency came into the story, ready to design a unique demonstration kitchen: a space dedicated to food dishes with their own ingredients, as well as live ‘show cooking’ events. The main mission was to create a beautiful setting for inspiring food experiences.
Despite the fact that the kitchen would be situated in an industrial environment, we aimed for a warm and homely atmosphere. By working with glass, the kitchen’s openness was extended outwardly to the adjoining rooms, which contributes to the inviting atmosphere. As the space adjoins the company's laboratory and bakery, where an industrial look predominates, this also had to be taken into account in the design. To create warmth and conviviality, we used natural materials and colours, such as walnut wood for the furniture, Ceppo di Gres stone on the walls and cupboards, and dark colours for more intimacy.
