And in the name of being together , the cuisine presented at Eurocucina . Spacious and open, she is the real heart of the house. No frills and yes to technology , as long as it is hidden , to leave plenty of space and freedom of movement inside, to experience it not only at lunch and dinner times . It is no longer the environment to hide behind the door, where to stop only for cooking and eating, but it is annexed in the living area. A trend that comes from the United States.
Like the “G-Box” model signed by Schiffini , in marble, cables and steel. One of the big news for appliances is Freddy, the blast chiller designed by Irinox , which arrives in the home from the restaurants . It looks more like an elegant and linear “Solaris” studio by Ernestomeda , designed by Pietro Arosio: table in corion , a material similar to marble, and steel, a choreographic shower faucet, a sink with an essential shape, and a glass ceramic hob without controls and relief grids. The cabinets are made of white gloss lacquered wood or black matt lacquer, both equipped with built-in appliances. Minimalist “Terra”, the kitchen by Claudio Silvestrin, in flamed porphyryand in cedar wood cut according to a single module. State-of-the-art appliances are hidden inside doors and drawers. He doesn’t want the apostrophe “Lisola” by the Canadian studio Yabupushelberg , a new proposal by Dada , a block that welcomes wood and steel.
In the meantime, a new theory comes from America: maxi kitchens are linked to the problem of obesity , which afflicts many Americans . The Washington Post
asks . Half a century ago American kitchens measured about 7.5 square meters , and an American weighed an average of 75 kilograms . Today the kitchen measures almost 21, and the average American weighs 86 . The new stars and stripes kitchens are increasingly large and visible, and end up becoming the most lived-in space in the home . They are no longer limited to being the room where the preparation and consumption of the meal takes place. In this way, perhaps, people are encouraged to spend more time near the refrigerator and pantry , and therefore eat more.
“There is something romantic in the idea of ​​the family found in the kitchen, in the idea of ​​the home-hearth – observed Aric Chen, an interior architect – but in the home-hearth of the past there were no envelopes huge packs of fries or giant packs ofmacaroni and cheese ». The most popular features, according to a survey by the American Institute of Architects, are the island counters and the integration with the family space. People want an open and welcoming environment , where the children can play while the mother, connected to the PC, pays the bills online, and the father prepares pancakes .
The most frequent request addressed to architects is: more space for the pantry . Meanwhile, the health picture is getting worse and worse: almost one in three Americans is obese, and almost two are overweight , according to data released by the disease control and prevention centers. The percentage of overweight adolescents etripled since 1980 , and 110,000 obesity-related deaths occur every year . In short, the hypothesis may not be so fanciful. Or at least, the fault is not all of the maxi kitchens. But, at least in part, their new structure influences eating habits in some way. It will also happen in Italy
