Italian designer Alessio Bassan has designed the Eco Kitchen for Key Cucine. In first glance it looks like any other modern kitchen unit. But the uniqueness of this design lies in the materials used. This concept utilized a new material called PaperStone® made from recycled eco-friendly paper. Here is some information from the designer, “The added value stems from the meticulous and at the same time original design featuring a checkerboard top that enhances the beauty of the product. A point where a new sensitivity comes into play along with passion for design.
The surprise lies in the innovative use of a new material. PaperStone® is composed of recycled paper fiber and non-petroleum-based resins. The modular surface in four different shades is the distinguishing features of this monolithic unit suspended on a recessed base. Meticulous attention has been paid to details, such as the sink made of PaperStone® with sunken taps and the board, which provides extra preparation space. The recessed grip handle makes opening the doors easier without interrupting the smooth, clean aesthetic design.”
