A simple gesture, a beautiful sensation. The fluid lines of Vision evoke person-centered ergonomics, pure emotion. Its soft outline reveals personality in the inter-flow of symmetrical, perfect geometries, evoking a primordial image of shelter. The design concept encapsulates the modern urge for fluid domestic spaces, with surfaces that flow and materials that immediately convey a sense of purity and sensuousness.
THE MARK OF PERFECT GEOMETRY
The interaction between volumes and surfaces finds its unquestionable distinctive mark in the Vision design. From the distinct geometry of the door with integrated profile-handle comes dimensions, symmetries and recomposition’s. These, in turn, lead to further symmetries and an interplay of features that can create a strong identity, which add to rather than compromising functionality. This special relationship between volume and surface leads to a design that is simple to decipher and easy to recognise whatever the composition. Whether its a “simple” linear kitchen, an island composition or anything else in between.
BASE UNITS FOR ISLANDS AND PENINSULAS: STYLE ICON
Once again, Pininfarina applies the wonder of form to outstanding function. The elegance of Vision is seen in its airy forms and volumes. A lightness conveyed by the unique design of the base units for islands and peninsulas, a refined element developed by craftsmen in stratified and shaped solid ash wood, with a design that could only be Pininfarina. The base unit is available in walnut-stained ash wood and in stainless steel. In addition to the advanced technology used in its construction, it features an integrated silicone LED strip, providing extraordinary visual appeal. The hood at the centre of the room also features the distinctive mark of the entire design. The tangential extractor hood is combined with a wooden shelf, in keeping with the design of the base unit of the island counter.
FLUID LIVING SPACES: THE CUPBOARD AS INTERFACE
The design of an interior is only really finished when there is harmony and balance among its different components: the architectural space, the furnishings, the quality of the materials and the finishes. Vision meets this objective, creating a fluid, dynamic space which brings together the different spaces. The use of cupboards with diagonal doors provides design continuity as well as flexible open storage in customised materials and finishes. An authentic solution with an open cupboard with cross-brushed stainless steel back panel), perfectly in keeping with the overall design of the kitchen.
SURFACE TECHNOLOGY: THE NEW METALESCENT LACQUER
Form and function are inextricable in Pininfarina designs. Once again, the technological factor is in the select materials and the innovative production processes. The door surfaces doors are treated with a new metalescent lacquer, which has a special, elegant impact. This finish was created to reproduce the visual effect of metallic surfaces, while ensuring the tactile warmth of a lacquered finish. It also allows metals to be “bent” to a wide variety of three-dimensional forms. 4 coats of finish are applied to the surface to obtain the metalescent effect. The final effect is an elegant, sober satin finish.
