These kitchens are pretty crazy. As in crazy awesome!
To get a sense of the company’s aesthetics, take a look at ‘Tipping Point, a typical Splinterworks project.
Point is an optically arresting sculptural feat; appearing to defy
gravity by impossibly balancing a huge leaning volume on a knife-edge.
The highly reflective mirror-polished stainless steel heightens the
visual weightlessness offering a gleaming, eye-catching pair of
balancing arcs in perfect symmetry. The lustrous surface creates elegant
elongated reflections of the surrounding environment, rendering the
whole piece to appear almost invisible. The reflective nature of the
work makes the piece easy to integrate into a living space, and the
circular design creates a self-contained working area which is easy to
place into an open plan space."
The company has completed projects all around the world, and
specializes in unique commissions of applied art, where every detail is
considered, and accomplished. Take the ‘dime’ composition for example, a
unit based on the effect of a spinning coin, which appears to be as
much of a sculpture as it is a functional piece, and the singular
curving sheet of stainless steel that forms ‘The Wave’.
Large kitchens present challenges in the planning of an effective
workspace just as small ones do, furniture must be substantial in size
to comfortably fill the area, yet should not cause a small task to take
longer to execute as a result of a longer journey path; to combat this,
the designers create intuitive zoning to make each typical kitchen
The cylindrical ‘Cink’.
“Wink’ evolved out of a study in geometric forms of two arcs”
SplinterWorks aren’t just kitchen experts though, other interesting
projects include the elevated, hammock-like ‘Vessel’ bathtub, and the
‘Stiletto’ which can be utilized as a desk, a console table or a
dressing table, and features a slender ‘stacked heel’ silhouette and
iconic ‘red sole’.
What do you think? Can you see yourself cooking in a kitchen like this or is it too out there for you??
