In Sweden, in a magnificent turn-of-the-century villa in Tyresö, on the shores of the Stockholm Archipelago, Officine Gullo, together with Refine Design Studio, has created a kitchen with an eclectic style – a mix of country and industrial.
Designed for those who love to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, this creative space is capable of embodying the true heart of the home – it’s a place for family gatherings. Each material and aspect was carefully selected, and the result is palpable – such as is the selection of colour, a particular shade of blue that recurs throughout the house, flanked by the warmth of the brass details.
The centrepiece of the project is the oven and stove top from Officine Gullo’s Restart collection, which fits in perfectly with the eclectic and elegant design of the house. It is painted Graphite Grey in a matte finish with burnished brass trim, coordinated with the rest of the kitchen. The retro-style brass door enriches the adjoining space, reproducing a perfect blend of old-world charm and contemporary elegance. It features a double oven – a larger electric oven and a second mini-oven with grill and rotisserie, while the sto e top is induction. Above, there is a bespoke hood made entirely of steel that echoes the same colours, with elegant burnished brass edges that harmonise perfectly with the kitchen’s suspended chandeliers.
“We wanted to create a rustic family kitchen with lots of space and luxurious details. For the kitchen, the central place in the house, we wanted to harmonise the choice of materials and colours with the location of the house in the Stockholm archipelago, and we knew immediately that the scale of blue would be the best choice, especially in combination with the warmth of the brass details. The key word in the realisation of the whole kitchen is craftsmanship. We wanted to create a kitchen from scratch, where every component was unique and tailor-made for the client, a rural atmosphere in which the stove and hood would harmonise with the industrial look of the chandeliers hanging over the kitchen island”.
