Both within their native Italy and also on the global stage, the Presotto family name is synonymous with kitchen design solutions that are at the frontline of innovation and style. With a distinguished pedigree in the furniture and design world of over sixty-seven years, the Presotto family’s furnishing firm Modulnova continues their legacy of bringing sophistication, elegance and originality into our homes.
Modulnova recently wowed the world’s design community during Salone del Mobile 2016, and some of their latest knockout offerings from the Modulnova Cucine line are sure-fire winners for kitchen furnishing needs across the globe.
Forget the bedroom, because with the kitchen as the heart of every home, Modulnova understands that this space is always the most inherently romantic in any house. Appealing to the heart, then, Modulnova’s Blade Kitchen line features a warm burnished tonal scheme that speaks to the romance, mystery and passion of our gastronomic lifestyles. With a thick mitre-folded worktop in Rovere Fumo and panelling in the rear cutout to allow optimum shelving spaces, the champion feature worktop insert is cut from a single block of Pietra Savoia Anthracite Gres. Accompanied by all the state-of-the-art steel and glass induction hobs and a metallic epoxy Iron Dust fireplace insert, the veneers are highly resistant due to being baked in a superheated oven, mounted on an aluminium honeycomb support. Trounced off with generous shelving and storage options, the large floor-to-ceiling doors deliver that element of slickness: with a push-to-open mechanism that does away with fussy handles, hinges and plinths.
But for those of us looking for design options that speak to our need for more carefree serenity in our homes, Modulnova’s Fly Kitchen is an airy monochromatic meditation on simplicity and calm. Including a heavy Corian worktop with satin Bianco lacquered base units, the doors are trimmed in 45° bevelling. Modifying the Blade door with Modulnova’s Bilico structure makes it possible to close compartments for ease of movement that also appeals to the uncluttered eye.
Since their establishment in 1988, Modulnova continues to be a master of home design answers. Their other lines include Modulnova Cucine, Modulnova Bagni (2000) and md Home, the newest direction that steps out of the kitchen and into the rest of our homes.
