Add a Minacciolo kitchen to a flat in an urban setting and attention is inevitably drawn to Minà, a multi-purpose island conceived as a cooking tool that, through its simplicity of form, recalls the traditional wood stoves popular during Italy’s “economic boom”.
The recent Oxidized Steel finish accentuates its seamless integration in an industrial-style environment, while the clean lines conceal a wealth of technological features that heighten the modernity of this unique furniture piece. Custom-made for those who appreciate design, the island stands apart by rejecting the non-essential.
The Minà island defines the space that is bordered and softened by the Natural Skin modular tall cabinets, which round out the kitchen furnishings.
These elements have a clean, linear look that reveals a strong dynamism – the cabinets with swing, pull-out and corner doors (which can be opened from either side) are all cleverly equipped with shelves, removable baskets and carousels.
The Minà kitchen is a testament to technological progress – the iconic red knobs that recall the boilers of steam locomotives are repurposed to turn on and regulate the ovens, cooktop and taps. The large drawers are an essential organizational solution and their space is made even more functional with fine beechwood dividers.
The understated luxury is apparent in the details – each Minà kitchen features an interior tag with technical information, the serial number and the name of the customer for which the made-to-measure kitchen was created.
Tailor-made is the new frontier in elegance.
