Soul kitchen, a Giuseppe Bavuso creation, has been extended with new options and finishings that maintain the characteristic practical fusion of design and technology to offer new solutions to customize a kitchen. Ernestomeda has developed this line to meet the contemporary demand for a kitchen to be a practical, convivial and welcoming space, while also embracing the latest technological innovations. Extending the Soul concept, the Medley system can “transition” a kitchen into a living area, acting as a bookcase, shelving or the framework for containers, shelves, basins, or even the Hood in Medley hood. This kitchen has two types of tables. The first, Cyclos, is revolving and ideal for a snack when closed, or a full-on meal when open, especially if it is rotated through 90° or 180°. The second, SteadyTable, is a fixed
rectangle with open-fronted sections that can be turned into leather drawers. The In-Line wall unit is another defining element of Soul, with ergonomic top-hinged openings that can accommodate the Hood in Line hood. Soul’s crisp, practical design is evident in every aspect across the full-range of kitchen functions. For example, the large Bay washing area and the Quick sliding chopping-board with the Stand Up upstand merge seamlessly with the work areas to produce a kitchen where everything is within easy reach. Soul units and shelves are made of Opticall 3D melamine, but can be combined with an array of finishings, in differing hues, to personalize the space: the Metal Effect lacquering has an extensive color palette (silver, bronze, champagne, iron, gold, palladium, petroleum, copper, titanium and umber); and the Flat Matt and Glossix shiny lacquering come in the new paloma grey, vaio grey and mineral finishings. The range of smooth and rough-sawn veneered woods also have two new Olmo colors: Caramel and Carob. In 2018, the options for the finishings and materials will be extended even further for Soul, with the addition of Metallix Steel Platinum and the new Nordic and Black open grain oak woods.
