AkB_08

Professional practicality

An exclusive project conceived by the capable hands of two expert figures, designer Franco Driusso and chef Andrea Berton, transferring the practicality of a professional kitchen to a domestic environment, enriched by a modern design.

For the first time, a domestic kitchen has been designed and developed in line with needs for high performance and practicality, expressed by a haute cuisine professional, above all without compromising on the clean lines and modular elegance typical of Arrital design.

Appliances and the organisation of spaces, accessories and materials have been carefully selected, reflecting the watchful eye of the chef and designer, who worked together on every single aspect of the design, each making their own precious and unique creative contribution.

AkB_08 Features

FRAMED DOOR

The “Floating Core” door and frame are combined with the solidity of a sturdy aluminium frame, to stamp a new look of home design. The frame, available in Ardesia and Bianco finishes, allows the application of slim front panels available in numerous lacquered, veneered, Fenix Ntm and Corian finishes.

null

FOCUS-ON LIGHTING

AkB_08 features a patented lighting design, “Focus On”, which provides dynamic lighting over the counter top, moving to wherever the chef is working. The led lights move along a support guide fitted over the counter top so that they slide into position and are recharged when set to “off”.

TWICE ACCESSORY

In a professional kitchen, multi-purpose stainless steel work tops increase the chef’s working area. A pop-up panel, located near the sink, places all the utensils, you need for food preparation and cleaning, on the work top while a thin steel plate slides into position to provide extra space when the food does not need washing.

null

INTERNAL EQUIPMENT

Internal drawers and deep drawers are organised in systems specifically designed to house cutlery, pots and all other equipment normally used in the kitchen every day. The operating principle behind these systems is based on an exclusive design, making use of different materials such as steel, painted metal and wood.

null

AKB CASE

“AkB_Case”, the two-level storage area also acts as a partition. It can be placed on the work top, table or island depending on your work and space requirements.

null

``STRATO`` BOISERIE

The Strato wood panelling allows the kitchen system to flow into the living area. The combination of finishes and modularity allows the development of equipped walls in all sizes, offering unique, linear design solutions thanks to a disappearing installation system and the use of 1 cm-deep shelves.

null

``MAJESTIC`` COUNTER

The unique 30° sloped edges on the Majestic bench create a clean, refined and elegant look, emphasised by the use of precious essences. Also available in overhang versions or with large leg.

null

``MAJESTIC`` SINK

The “Majestic” sink revamps the washing area with a contemporary twist. The raised steel edges, sloping inwards, not only lend character to the design, but are also a useful functional touch for collecting water and splashes to keep the work area clean.

null

``MAJESTIC`` HOOD

Characterised by a high visual impact, the new “Majestic” perimeter extraction hood has been designed using satin-finish steel, respecting the geometrical contours setting the Akb_08 system accessories apart.
