Concept

Banco, created by Luca Meda in 1994, concentrates the main cooking and washing functions in the free-standing structure, patented by Dada. A solid extrusion of aluminium supports the slimline worktop which defines the horizon of the volumes. Thus the structure stays elevated and suspended, and can be completed with base units. The new Banco redefines material contrasts and opts for black and white. The island supports the storage units below. The slim worktop rests on the aluminium frame, concealing its solid core.
“Banco means counter. The idea of a counter is like that of a rover, a man who wanders north, south east and west, slowly building an appetite and that’s why the counter ended up in the kitchen. And in a flash, transformed it.”
