This year, Scavolini celebrates its 60th anniversary of delivering sophisticated and distinctive Italian style to the world. The Italian house of design has introduced four striking new modular collections for kitchen and bathroom, all of them boasting the cutting-edge design for which Scavolini is known.
Among the latest offerings is the MIA by Carlo Cracco kitchen, a Scavolini collaboration with Carlo Cracco, a big name in Italian cuisine, and the chef and proprietor of the acclaimed eponymous fine dining restaurant in Milan. The MIA kitchen is a new interpretation and domestication of the professional kitchen. Distinguishing features include a 10-inch metal recessed handle grip conveniently positioned horizontally along the top of the base units and vertically on the sides of the collection’s tall units. The collection includes a newly created Line System: a wall panelling system embellished with dedicated accessories, such as wall-mounted bottle racks and matching hooks, shelves and racks to keep herbs, spices and kitchen tools at one’s fingertips.
Also bringing Scavolini into its seventh decade is the DeLinea kitchen line, a sophisticated collection that makes a lifestyle statement with its contemporary modularity and trendy materials. Designed by Vuesse, Scavolini’s own research and development department, DeLinea’s extensive variety of modular units offers numerous composition options, from islands to corner or peninsula configurations, all in the latest engineered materials and finishes. It includes thin metal shelves, available in brass, steel and bronze that can be teamed with cables in matching or alternating finishes. Decorative melamine, glossy and matte lacquered finishes, and laminates are also now available with a new stone effect that adds interesting nuance to the finish. The collection’s base units are two-and-a-half-feet high with three-inch-high plinths or kickboards, enhancing user-friendliness without sacrificing style.
For the bathroom, Scavolini has created Juno, a collection that stands out for its strikingly simple silhouettes, clear geometric lines, and minimal styling. A game of volumes and perfect functionality make it a natural when it comes to harmonizing with adjoining living space. The range comes with a new system of mirrors and Magneto accessories – soap dishes, tumbler holders, towel racks and open-fronted shelves – that allow users to freely position accessories across the surface of the mirrored panels. An extensive choice of lacquered finishes – glossy or matte – and decorative melamine in various colours make it easy to customize a bathroom. The Juno system can also be incorporated with the company’s existing Fluida wall system to expand bathroom storage.
Finally, Scavolini’s Tratto bathroom line, also designed in-house, is a sophisticated offering with a strong scenic presence. Perfect for master ensuites and smaller utility bathrooms, this line plays a skillful game with colours and textures, recessed grip and handle profiles, and brass, bronze and silver finishes. Like other Scavolini lines, Tratto also offers the company’s trademark Line System: a modular structure made of wall panels and alternative profiles onto which metal objects can be attached, including storage bowls, shelves, open-fronted elements and hooks. Space-savers all of them. •
