Design : CRS (re-edition of the model designed in 1972 by Luigi Massoni)
Kitchen programme which is recognised among the masterpieces of Italian design. The kitchen has been manufactured since 1972 and it was the first kitchen available with no handle, with a door opening, on the base units and on the suspended units in shaped aluminium profile, thus allowing to easily fit the hand to the open the door. The old model is reviewed and offered entirely removing the handles, on the intermediate drawers and on the refrigerator tall units too, through the addition of new aluminium extruded profiles available in three finishes. Available with tops in many different finishes: Corian®, marble, granite, stones, stainless steel, wood and laminate. In 2012 new materials for this kitchen: worktops, doors and side panels in frosted painted glass which gives a more refined imagine to this product. In 2013 a 3 mm. aluminium sheet (steel or dark) finish has been added.
