A contemporary, light-filled HI-MACS® kitchen with a mountain view

After their maminicuisine®, designer Charlotte Raynaud Hegenbart and Menuiserie Hegenbart present a kitchen made of HI-MACS® with a light-filled room, and wonderful views of the Sainte-Victoire Mountain.

The trend today is toward open-plan living spaces that are spacious, bright, engaging and warm. Say good-bye to tiny kitchens, where cooks are isolated while everyone else enjoys cocktail hour together. A further trend is for contemporary kitchens, showcasing natural materials with grains and textures. 

For this project, designer Charlotte Raynaud Hegenbart imagined an island unlike any other. Mirrored sides make this casual kitchen island appear to float in mid-air. Its rounded shape was made possible using HI-MACS®, which was also used for the worktop, thanks to the ability to thermoform the material into any shape imagined. Installed in the centre of the room, it merges the kitchen into the dining area and the living room. It can serve as a dining table for three and also allows the cook to prepare meals in the company of others, while everyone can enjoy the benefits of the wide spaces and brightness of the main room.
