Skyline for Snaidero

Skyline 2.0 is the kitchen that is measured against your horizon, orienting itself to the natural logic of your gestures, in a very different way. It does this by means of an innovative design, which breaks free of conventional schemes without compromising on comfort and functionality. Skyline adapts itself to your body and facilitates your gestures, with shaped worktops and work areas with glass shelves equipped with built-in lighting.

Ours is a story of passion, of a love for wood and for all things made well. It was back in 1976 when Carlo Scandola, having racked up years of experience working in handcrafted furniture shops in the Verona area, decided to open his own workshop, thereby laying the foundations of what would become Scandola Mobili. The home he chose for the business was Boscochiesanuova, a village sitting 1,100 m above sea level in the Lessini Hills. Here, he supplemented his contract work for other manufacturers with the production of his own new line of furniture. The first catalogue was published in 1988 and marked the moment the company became a producer in its own right. Though the premises have not moved in the thirty years since our founding, the small-scale workshop has evolved into what is now a large facility with an impressive 10,000 sq metres of floor space. What hasn't changed in all that time is our determination and enthusiasm, allowing us to deliver products today marked by the same natural essence and handcrafted skill that has been there from the very beginning.

At the heart of Scandola lies a longstanding passion for working with wood and nowhere is it more evident that in the “Maestrale” kitchen. This interior comes in spruce with a pearl white finish, teamed with ecoconcrete worktops and sink in the smoke colour option.



New World

A new philosophy, a new quality, a "new world". Elegant, restrained lines in a new classic style for a collection that offers unprecedented tactile and visual sensations with its special brushed finish, which brings out the grain of the solid spruce, showing it off to the full. A renewed, cosy and natural style to suit both country and city life.


Tabià conjures up images of barns, stables and farmworkers' cottages, the repositories of an ancient flavour and once the hub of the mountain dwellers' domestic and working life. A collection that is strong and bold in character and evokes the warmth and vitality of these places, conveyed through the poetry and rigour of wood, brought up to date with clean, solid lines.

Chances are, your upright refrigerator has more than a few items long overdue to be thrown out. It’s in part due to our increasingly hectic schedules, but also because the design isn’t conducive to food organization and management. Future Connect refrigeration ditches the large fridge/freezer combo for a modular system of refrigerating units that compartmentalize meals in trays that can also be used for cooking. Each unit also informs the user when items are approaching expiration. Check the video for more!

“Taking inspiration from the latest international design fairs, this kitchen trends towards a minimalist look where the kitchen invisibly blends into the background. It’s a design that’s particularly relevant to inner-city apartments, where there isn’t a dedicated space for a kitchen and it needs to work in with the living area without taking over.

Loads of compact storage is concealed behind floor-to-ceiling wall panels, which open automatically with a light touch on the handle-less front and which are powered by the Servo-Drive electrical drive system.

Either side of the oven, bi-fold doors lift up, as opposed to traditional left- or right-opening cupboards, providing easy access to day-to-day essentials like the microwave and kettle. The pantry is housed in full-height pull-out cabinets, leaving the island bench as the statement piece in the room and the dedicated cooking, preparation, dishwashing and bin area. What the owners love most is that it’s such a practical space when in use and so easily packed up when the cooking is done.”
