Minimal USA’s GLAM kitchens at Franklin Street
New York – NY, February 15, 2013: Minimal USA has designed the kitchens of two high-end apartments at the second and the sixth floor at 88 Franklin Street in Tribeca, NY.
In the open space at the second floor, the minimalist design of the island in smooth matte gray Lacquer and CaesarStone quartz countertop, makes the island the focal point of the room.
Against the wall, the base cabinets in the same color are dominated by the hood: a sculptural chimney structure that goes all the way to the top of the 15ft ceiling.
Enhancing the sculptural design of the kitchen, is a strip of LED lights just below the one and only line of open shelving against the wall.
Hidden to the left is a small pantry of 43 square meters; despite its small dimension, the efficient design has made possible the inclusion of: refrigerator and freezer, microwave, oven, a secondary sink and more cabinets that enable the main kitchen to maintain its minimalist aesthetic and the clutter to be hidden away. Appliances by Gaggenau and Miele.
The cutting edge and functional design by Minimal USA make this the perfect open kitchen, with the island facing the living room as a focal point for entertaining and the cook-in pantry a place where to conceal the mess, integral to food preparation, transforming the living room and the kitchen into a unique beating heart of the home.
