The Well-Designed Kitchen Right at Home

Perfectly ordered baskets and drawers represent a detail that is anything but frivolous when organizing a kitchen space. The exquisitely contemporary need for kitchens to exude pure, essential lines, which are also in continuity with the living room, as well being capable of conveying and refining shapes, presumes a perfect rationalization of interiors and compartments.

However, elegant lines, contemporary design and precious materials are certainly not enough to define the ideal kitchen from a practical and functional point of view, and the preciousness of the kitchen details become essential. Read on to discover a few of the most interesting solutions to kitchen organization proposed by top design companies.

Arrital Ak_board

Ak_board is one of the functional solutions of AKB_08, by Arrital, which stands for Arrital Kitchen Berton, a kitchen system designed by architect Franco Driusso and star chef Andrea Berton with the aim of bringing the functionality of a professional kitchen into the home.

Features of the AKB_08 include: the “Twice” multi-functional worktop in stainless steel; the “Focus On” lighting design system, which offers dynamic lighting movement in the work area thanks to a sliding track; the AKB_Case compartment, a two-level storage element; and, above all, the intelligent AK_board pull-out cutting board system.

The latter has the special feature of being able to be pulled out and then stored in a drawer in a special compartment. Available in wood or Teflon, Ak_board rests on a removable steel tray that can be used for serving and is easy to clean. It also serves as an additional work surface and offers storage space for a knife and spatula.
