design CR & S Zaccariotto - a model that uses the textural Unicolor laminate finishes such as stone, wood and plain refined to create unique solutions for different compositions. Available with handles or throat.


design CR & S Zaccariotto - is part of the 22 SYSTEM, ie a system of doors 22 mm thick, which lets you mix model variants SIRIO with TIME and TIME with CIGAR. It is by far the more flexible model in our range. It has been calculated that employing the full range of finishes available – that’s 22 real wood veneers, 21 standard colors including matt lacquered with silky and shiny with polyester paint brushed by hand, the ability to use the full range of RAL matt and glossy, processing “craclĂ©” in gold or silver leaf type, 22 handles as standard, in addition to being achievable in the linear version without handle and curve – the same composition can be presented in 106 thousand different aesthetic variations. We think that might be enough to satisfy even the most discerning palates.


design CR & S Zaccariotto - is a model with glass doors worked with the effect of all the slats firmly attached to the inside of an indestructible aluminum frame. The special handle seems to emerge from the glass but is also attached to the frame. The entire product is fully recyclable through the use of materials such as glass and aluminum. Ecological, unalterable intense use of the kitchen and robust because it does not suffer neither water nor heat, quest’anta is the best combination for those who like convenience, easy to clean and an unbound fashions. A valuable material for a top-class exclusive.


The combination of an elegant ornamental frieze in the shape of the Greek capital, finished with details in silver or gold-leaved classic clew frame and mat lacquered in a wide range of colors available to taste with or without decorative threads silver and gold, creates a compositional system in modeling the classic original and extremely flexible.

Linear Or Long, Just The Way I Like It

The EON 2 is a concept kitchen whose main highlight is the rotating bar. By moving this bar from linear to L-type, you get a chance to play around with the space, looks and orientation of the room. The minimalist design is supported with the use of high quality materials and fittings.
Essentially the rotating bar allows greater mobility of the kitchen and more space when the kitchen is not used. The kitchen fronts are made of painted MDF and worktop is a made of LG Hi-Mac acrylic composite material.

Specifying earthy colours and raw timber is a popular design technique that connects an interior with the outdoors, or brings a sense of nature inside. But when the bush is at your doorstep, you can turn it around and bring bold pattern and colour to your interior. With a house set in a 20ha bush property, this family of four did just that – they asked kitchen designer, Katrina Luxton, of Royston Wilson Design, to incorporate colour and whimsy into their kitchen and dining area extension. “The clients sought a practical but colourful space that would be hard wearing, with plenty of storage,” she says. “They also wanted an island bench that could adapt on a daily basis, according to the family’s needs.”
Luxton’s design went further – in addition to an island, she specified a mobile unit made from liquorice-coloured Laminex. This unit can be an upstand over the island, placed at 90 degrees to create extra bench space, or moved around and used as a sideboard or homework area. The clients also wanted to be able to enjoy the views from anywhere in the kitchen. Luxton added a full-length window that runs between the bench and overhead cabinets, and doubles as a splashback. “Now the family can look out on the bush from any seat in the kitchen, making this space a real retreat.”
To ensure the kitchen stands out against the views, the cabinetry is finished in bright floral patterns and colours. A dark speckled concrete floor, chosen for its ability to withstand wear and tear, pulls the palette together. The kitchen is lined with storage, which includes a half-pantry next to the fridge with pull-out drawers, and a dresser-style unit with lift-up Blum Aventos doors. Glass slots in an internal wall draw the view back to the main interior, connecting the kitchen extension with the rest of the house. -
