Crafted with the finest materials, this kitchen series upholds the brand’s reputation of excellence in quality and construction. Wielding the technique of overlaying, this series exudes a clean imagery of lines concealing the hardware and construction systems of the designs.

With tones ranging from ochre crèmes to caramel browns, these designs are rendered with contemporary shades and finishes. The façades of the cabinetry and tabletops expose a diverse synaesthesia of textures—from glistening marble tops to raw, organic wooden surfaces.
