Designer Karim Rashid has created two new kitchen designs Kook and Karan for Aran Cucine. Both kitchens are made of solid surface material HI-MACS. Presented at the Eurocucina 2012 (Milan International Furniture Fair), the Kook kitchen is distinguished by sinuous silhouettes and an entirely innovative ergonomic design. The worktop used in the Kook model, which is more than 90 cm deep, allows an improved layout of the hob and sink zones, as well as making it more user-friendly.
The Karan kitchen concept is based on an island, with a tapered silhouette, which encourages conviviality. When not in use, the mixer tap and LED light withdraw into the worktop. The simple addition of a multi-purpose chopping board which fits over the sink creates a handy dining area.
