The kitchen consists of back rectangular part covered with natural stone and freestanding organically shaped cooking island made of Corian in total length 4.3 meters. Background part creates monoblock artistically expressive by natural drawings of stone lines. On the right side there is storage space accessible through sliding corian doors, plastically shaped in geometrically repeating pattern. In the closed position it forms a plastic relief, which communicates compositionally with the stone background. Frontal organically shaped island is in the contrast to the back of the “heavy’ stone monoblock wall and in opposite seems light and dynamic. The back part is done from MDF and all exposed surfaces are coated with natural stone Port Laurent in 20 mm tickness. All fronts of drawers, doors and doors in the fridge or freezer are covered by stone of 8 mm thickness. The cooking island is made of white Corian glacier with 12 mm thickness. There was used thermoform technology. Inside the island there is a supporting aluminum structure anchored to the floor .
I was provoked by the thought to connect two seemingly unconnected worlds. The combination of natural material with artificial composites and rectangular architecture with organic architecture.
