Modular Cooktop

CookPlat is conceived as a portable Pyrex vitroceramic cooker that uses magnetic induction technology. Designed to be modular, this cooker can be transported and used in just about any environment. Since it is a vitroceramic hob, the cooker directly heats up the utensil via a magnetic field and doesn’t use heating resistors (radiant heat).
For a layperson this means efficient cooking via less energy loss. Some of the key features include being dishwasher safe, outdoor compatible, configurable modules, and the ‘capacitance touch switch’ has a longer lifetime than ordinary switches.
CookPlat is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept Best of Best winner.

Architect Alberto Torsello is the design brain behind Abimis kitchens, a design that will bring a chef’s kitchen to your own home. The kitchens are handmade in Italy and constructed entirely of stainless steel that’s impact resistant, meaning if you ram a stool into a lower cabinet, it won’t ding. The surface is orbitally polished to help make scratches and marks difficult for the eye to see, while also warming up the typical bright look of the shiny material.

Torsello, with the help of Prisma, honed in on the five phases that every chef works through – conserving, preparing, cooking, presenting, and washing – and properly organized the kitchen to make each step efficient, just like in a professional set-up. Beyond the superior function of the Abimis kitchen is the clean and sleek look of each component.
