The stage is imposing, compact, equipped for preparation and cooking,” the designer remarks. This kitchen features a wall cabinet with glass shelves and integrated lighting and comes complete withtall units and a kitchen island. Built-in appliances also create a compact kind of design, respecting the double depth of the tall units. Sipario was displayed at last year’s Eurocucina and was presented in Fenix grey, with a stainless steel worktop.
