LuxuryTopping attended the launch of Rossana K-in K-out kitchen. Rossana is regarded as the premier and most state of the art kitchen company from Italy, internationally renowned for innovative design and the use of natural materials to create awe inspiring kitchens. It was appropriate that Rossana should select the Saatchi Gallery to launch their latest and most inventive kitchen.
Fighting through the crowd of over 700 people invited and supported by the design bible Wallpaper, the Saatchi gallery in the Kings Road hummed with excitement. We have not seen such a crowd of beautifully curated people since the opening night of Rolling Stones event.
The name K-in K-out gives an idea of the extraordinary kitchen, designed as one but capable of being used in two different scenarios, either in a traditional kitchen environment or outside for the ultimate wow factor. You can purchase one or both in a huge range of selected finishes from natural woods such as, eucalyptus or heat treated elm to stone suitable for penthouses or patios. The design creates the opportunity for bringing superlative design to a kitchen inside and outside. Snapped up Harry Handelsman – who always can recognise a good thing when he sees it – the kitchens were virtually placed into Manhattan Loft Corporations’ upcoming sky tower, Manhattan Loft Gardens, located within the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, the coolest place to live, work and play.
K-in K-out uses a range of finishes including natural grey stone of the finest quality and when closed mimics a piece of sculpture. But a bit like Pandora’s magic box, when the sculptured cover top slide opens to reveal the appliances and work surface beneath, a complete work of art by Massimo Castagna. The doors and tops of both versions combine the chosen finish with cellular aluminium and the hidden guides for the sliding tops ensure a weatherproof shied for K-out.
Through a virtual reality presentation, the audience was taken to Manhattan Loft Gardens to experience these magnificent kitchens placed in situ.
Chandra Pandya, Rossana’s Brand Director for the UK commented ‘originality is part of our DNA, Rossana are masters in combing craftsmanship, materials and design’. We could not agree more.
