Convivium is open space, a kitchen as an agile organised area, where being together becomes something to share anew every day, a place where a whole series of concrete actions – storing, preparing, cooking – are turned into rituals and emotions. Aromas in the kitchen tell of familiar tales or distant places, old recipes are handed down and new ones experimented and most importantly, everyone eats together around the big table. Convivium furnishes the walls of a room that becomes warm, welcoming and functional, with island-table in the centre and canopy shelves running round the whole room at picture rail height.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and family activity, for everyday sharing. Compact and minimal, the island integrates preparation and cooking, with room for socialising and features a very slim worktop with recess and Convivium Elegant door in Vintage stainless steel. The finish is the result of a manual process that gives the steel a ’warmer’ look, perfect with the elegant soft fossil oak wood of the snack bar table, the open unit, and built-in drawers.
