Alea

Paolo Piva and CR&S Varenna (2003)

Primary form. A rigorous design for a new defining of the kitchen. A project by Paolo Piva featuring ’minimal’ formal characteristics: to convert every practical unit into sheer design, essential forms, maintaining the highest possible operativeness. The aesthetic concept of Alea is linked to the strong prominence which singles out every composition, every element, and which is at times an edge, others a frame or structure. The containers, the work tops, the wall or island operative parts become perfect geometrical ’solids’, surfaces which enhance the separate materials. Every Alea detail brings out the design drive of ’giving shape’ to a new concept of the kitchen.
