Our first day at the Rho Fairgrounds was exhilarating, overwhelming, hunger-inducing, and more inspirational than we could have ever imagined. I loved checking out the fashion just as much as the exhibitors' booths- Italian men certainly know how to wear their suits properly.
The kitchen cucina exhibition hall proved to be quite groundbreaking compared to American standards and gave us a plethora of detailing ideas and material inspiration. One trend we couldn't help but notice was the use of Stainless Steel in sophisticated high-end kitchens. These were certainly not industrially inspired- they were razor sharp with precise detailing. Who's in? We're dying to apply some of these concepts.
This Stainless Steel application could easily be applied to a US kitchen and is durable enough to withstand the most agressive of chefs...as long as you don't mind a little patina.
These images (taken at the Salone exhibition hall- low light) demonstrate the use of modular shelving and a SS waterfall edge detail.
What do you think? Would you give Stainless Steel a try in your kitchen?
