Last month I visited the Piet Boon Showroom and had a sneak peek of two new kitchens designed by Studio Piet Boon. Next to the Salvatori official flagship store within the Bathroom department, shown on the blog last year. I was happy to also visit the new showroom of one of my favourite Belgian brands Serax where a changing collection of different designs will be on display.
Element kitchen concept
The renewed and modular ELEMENT kitchen concept is exhibited in the Piet Boon Kitchen & Dining Showroom in a setting of 25m2 and is centrally situated in the room. By giving the island a central place and making it part of the design, the space is used optimally.
The concept shows a kitchen island completely executed in honed Shitake Caesarstone composite. The custom cabinetry is strongly reminiscent of a living space. In this kitchen arrangement, the use of this material creates a natural connection. The walnut cabinet wall also provides a perfect canvas for special and personal styling objects and is an aesthetic solution for the integrated refrigerator.
With its solid and straight lines, the timeless kitchen design shows a strong symmetrical image. For this kitchen and living space, the design team of Studio Piet Boon chose rich materials and various textures. Both the cabinetry and the kitchen island and back wall may be seen as stand-alone elements. Through the use of perfectly matched colors, they still present a coherent and balanced overall picture. The whole is built up from three serene Piet Boon colors, through which the tactile characteristics and structures are clearly visible, and provide a subtle tension in the space. Text:Piet Boon
The two new settings showcase a complete living environment in which the kitchen plays the leading role. In the 100m2 new FRAME setting, togetherness and commitment are given a central role. By creating vistas in the design, a connection to the entire space is created upon entering.
In addition, the practical aspect of the space plays an important role in the design of this concept. It shows how detailed thought was given to functional spaces, such as a utility room, storage, and laundry room. The symmetrical lines in the design create a logical flow through all the rooms, and the custom-made display cabinet is part of the environment.
For the arrangement of the kitchen in this new setting, the studio team chose a lacquered and brushed oak version. The warm yet light and elegant Piet Boon color SHELL, which was implemented in this kitchen, shows the beauty of matte and glossy material combinations. For the kitchen worktop, the high-quality and true-to-nature material Caesarstone composite was chosen, in the color Bianco Drift. This material is well suited for intensive use, allowing the kitchen to retain its functional aspect in addition to its aesthetic quality.
The generous fireplace is constructed of individual blocks giving the space an architectural feel. In this setting you will find various works of art by Annemieke van Beek, Cacoa 3 Studio, Mattia Vernocchi and Laura de Wilde, among others. Text:Piet Boon
