Mimetic, functional, dynamic, versatile. They conceal and reveal themselves and tickle curiosity. And they surprise endlessly.
If we wanted to compare them to a type of personality, we could say that they resemble a moderate person who does not like to flaunt, who pays close attention to detail and boasts a very lively interior life, a multifaceted intimacy ready to be discovered.
The concealed kitchens adapt to any type of environment, large or contained, super contemporary or traditional, formal or intimate. The common feature? The kitchen area that stands out as the (not always evident) protagonist of the enlarged space.
Elegant and with modern glamour, TM Italia’s concealed kitchens have been designed in order to reveal the workstation and the functional spaces. Magically, the column’s majestic shutters retract, flow and disappear in the sidewall through a different and extremely flowing system of mobilization.
As a matter of fact, concealed kitchens are characterized by moving elements and different moving systems that allow the operational space and the appliance being hidden. Modern and functional kitchens that, once closed, mark the surrounding out leaving it orderly and linear.
Multifunctional environments with broadened conviviality are increasingly common in interior design. Sometimes it is the limited space of urban apartments that imposes the coexistence of the kitchen, dining, living and study areas.
Much more often, this coexistence is determined by the desire to get rid of traditional barriers and to give space to the concept of sharing, with family and friends in the various moments that characterize the flow of the day.
The concealed kitchens are highly effective design solutions for either high-quality confined spaces or open living rooms.
Even when arranging for the furniture of a single multi-functional space, as in the case of an office, it is necessary trying to organize a kitchen project with alternatives that take into consideration a concealed kitchen’s cabinet. In this kind of kitchens, the high flexibility and design must be the main characteristics and must be able to coexist in a polyhedral space that adapts to everyday life. As in the case of the Off Kitchen, a multifaceted, versatile and wide concealed kitchen. The kitchen enriches the workplace with style, transforming it: a countertop that becomes a desk or a conference table but, if necessary, is still a kitchen in any case.
The must of the project? Optimize the interior spaces to neatly arrange dishes, tools and appliances, hide work areas of the kitchen by means of easily retractable doors hiding in the side compartments or by sliding surfaces that become dining tables, create stylistically fluid environments where the materials used for the doors and the worktops match the rest of the project. Last but not least: design by bearing in mind the concept of meta-kitchen – a place where we cook and eat, but also a place of relationships, entertainment, play, work, sharing and intimacy.
The concealed kitchens complete of retractable or sliding doors, camouflage the different elements of the kitchen inside the columns.
The concealed kitchen projects are equipped with all the functional elements that, if necessary, can be hidden through the use of doors whether they are recessed, coplanar, folding or retractable pocket doors.
The modern concealed kitchens are equipped with surfaces that slide easily and, once the food preparation is over, they allow you to create a living room with a tidy and comfortable appearance. In all this, home automation plays a fundamental role: in fact, hi-tech mechanisms are inserted in the design of concealed kitchens that are based on safety sensors and ensure that the closing movement of the doors is performed when there are no objects that obstruct its correct functioning.
Do you think that concealed kitchens are the right union between functionality, aesthetics and compactness?
