Melding contemporary design and a naturalist aesthetic with the Artex Kitchen

CR&S Varenna’s Artex Kitchen fuses avant-garde technical solutions with grounded and modern aesthetic design to create a cooking space for modern living.

The Artex Kitchen is a modernist kitchen system from CR&S Varenna, design with a contemporary aesthetic in mind, yet working in cooperation with a decidedly naturalistic visual palette. Constructed with ample surfaces and grounded with the strength of rigorous and essentialist lines, the structure and assembly serve as highlights for the quality of the materials.

Artex is serviced by a detail-orientated design, with a 26mm thickness door that serves to create a continuous shadow line between the cabinetry and the worktop. This, along with a material palette of gloss lacquers, natural timbers, steel and bronzed glass, have the Artex Kitchen system offering endless opportunities to personalise.

The kitchen system revolves around the notion of avant-garde hardware solutions and personal stylistic choices, making this kitchen an ideal choice for the contemporary living space. The maximum freedom in compositions enables original proposals, which are defined by a wide range of materials, finishes and colours.

Artex is available in Australia through Poliform
