In this staging of a SieMatic S2, lotus white lacquered front panels meet light oak, matt meets gloss, and graphical austerity meets homey elegance. Accents are provided by shining nickel handle recesses. The veneer front panels of the island extend nearly to the floor and are set apart from the design of the surrounding elements by a perfect veneer grain. This creates a formal unit that optically separates kitchen and living area. The panel wall system FloatingSpaces and the tall cabinets are installed in such a way that they seem to be components of the room architecture. The fine, lotus white shelves are offset by the natural oak veneer panel wall, in order to soften the austere geometry of the kitchen. One of the shelves transitions to the neighboring countertop of the same thickness, and the joints of the panel wall are continued in the vertical handle recesses of the tall cabinets.
