Our Latest Award Winning Kitchen Design | A Clean Lined Design, Inspired By Nature 

The kitchen is located in Governors Bay, nestled into the Port Hills, 20 minutes from Christchurch’s city centre. The owners sought an organic aesthetic to complement the rugged bush surroundings and the exterior of the home finished in timber, stone and copper. It was important that the kitchen be driven by function and to have a "measured elegant feel"
says Maria Pomeroy of Matisse Christchurch.

The “Gamma” collection from Arclinea was the perfect fit to complement the brief. The seamless aesthetic of “Gamma” features clean lines and incorporates recessed handles into the structure of the bench top. Long cabinet drawers were chosen to maximise storage and to accentuate the kitchen’s linear lines. Floating shelves help achieve the elegant, Japanese feel the clients loved and provide beautiful spaces for display.

Contrasting the generous use of timber, with soft matt black surfaces in defined areas on the island and back wall, helped avoid a strictly symmetrical look. Stainless steel on the back working bench and splashbacks adds practicality and an element of reflection and light to the overall design.

The “Armour” finish, in Nero from Arclinea, is tactile and warm and has the benefit of absorbing light. This adds a softness to the colour palette during the day and at night when lighting comes into play.” says Maria Pomeroy of Matisse Christchurch.

Arclinea at Eurocucina 2016  

As part of Eurocucina 2016 in Milan, Arclinea celebrated its 90th year,
presenting a new project by Antonio Citterio - Principia

Function and Ritual motivate the design of Principia, highlighting natural materials, innovative production technologies and artisan detailing. The concept of the Kitchen as the heart of the home is revisited becoming the main driver for interiors. Function, purpose of work and shared experiences combined, form the model of Principia. A connected, coordinated, beautifully crafted and functional kitchen concept.

Principia merges an antique-look-rough wood with an innovative stainless steel finish. The new development of technological PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) is embedded throughout the design. To find out more click here.
