In the Kitchen

A buffet of colorful, cutting-edge products has home chefs cooking in style

In the Kitchen JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2011

A New Angle

The ventilation hood from Jenn-Air is designed to hang on the wall like a picture frame. It features a high-gloss, angled-glass panel framed by stainless-steel trim. Two-inch-thick perimetric ventilation channels line the perimeter of the hood to pull smoky, steamy air out.

Made in Italy

Designed by architect Antonio Citterio, Arclinea’s Lignum et Lapis includes a ceiling-mounted unit in stainless steel that incorporates a hood, lighting system, food warmer and miniature green house. The integrated sink and cooktop are surrounded by a Gra-Bla marble surface. Available at Arclinea in DC.

Strong & Silent 

This food processor from Viking has a professional-grade induction motor for powerful and quiet processing. It boasts a 12-cup work bowl with a cast-metal handle and one-step assembly of work bowl to base. Rear wheels allow for easy maneuverability; also available in white, black and stainless gray.

On Wheels

Italian wood manufacturing company Joko combines woodwork with creative design to produce this conveniently sized kitchen cart trolley. It contains a surface of solid, end-grain hornbeam, a hardwood found in Europe, and a structure of stainless steel. Also available with a stainless-steel top.

Blast From the Past

SieMatic’s latest kitchen collection was inspired by the company’s 6006 Series, which debuted in 1960. Back then, it was the world’s first handle-free kitchen cabinetry—and today’s version echoes the original streamlined look, with the signature strip handle now integrated and available in matte aluminum or black. Available through Konst SieMatic in Bethesda.

Pure White

CaesarStone is adding Pure White to the array of shades in which its quartz surfaces are available. Like all CaesarStone surfaces, Pure White is non-porous and scratch-, heat-, stain- and crack-resistant. Available in glossy or honed finishes.

Fabulous Fifties

Italian appliance manufacturer SMEG’s FAB28 Retro Style Refrigerator combines modern technology with the iconic style of another era. Storage within the energy-efficient interior includes a large fruit-and-vegetable container and a chrome wine rack; available in eight non-traditional, eye-catching colors.

Space Saver

The Le Mans Corner Pull-Out puts wasted corner space to use in the kitchen. Its two shelves move independently of each other and offer a non-slip surface finish to hold items in place. A working unit can be found in Kleppinger Design Group’s Fairfax, Virginia, showroom.

A Seamless Connection

The Bulthaup b3 kitchen design system is made from monoblocks— laminate shells that are converted into cabinetry. Bulthaup mono- blocks boast laser-welded surfaces that create seamless laminate fronts. Inside, walnut drawers and pull-outs make organization easy.

Coffee, Anyone?

The Benvenuto free standing coffee machine from Bosch grinds the beans and brews the coffee at the touch of a button. It includes an AromaSwirl brewing system, digital display, drip tray, frother and 25 bars of pump pressure. Fully automated, it’s also self-cleaning.

Spice It Up

Four new kitchen faucet collections from JADO combine functionality and a modern design that includes drip-free ceramic disc valve cartridges, eight-inch swivel spouts and either a pull-out nylon or pull-down metal hose. Available through American Standard in Basil, Cayenne, Saffron and Coriander (pictured here).

Made to Order

Glass By Hand is an accent tile handmade of kiln-fired glass. During the firing process, color pigments and metallic minerals fuse together to create subtle variations. Tiles come in different colors, patterns, sizes and shapes. Designed to enhance the look of natural stone or slate (pictured here), they’re available through Design Tile, Inc., in Vienna, Virginia.
