Our client approached our Cesar NYC Kitchen Flagship Showroom because they were planning to renovate their entire apartment in the heart of Chelsea, New York City. They started working with our kitchen designer Enrico early on in this residential renovation project since the kitchen was supposed to be the center and design highlight within their open concept kitchen and living room space.
The kitchen used for this project is our minimalistic, award-winning Italian Cesar Maxima 2.2 kitchen model. The client chose black Fenix Laminate as the main cabinet finish for the kitchen base, tall and wall cabinets as well as the kitchen island. Our Cesar Fenix finishes are internationally patented, and are very resistant and durable while creating beautiful, matte aesthetics and a warm atmosphere. The kitchen countertop is made of an absolute black honed granite top, which integrates well with the sleekness of the black cabinet doors, and fully enhances the kitchen without any connection to a wall.
Our kitchen designer Enrico suggested to work with open shelves, mirrors and indirect minimalistic under-cabinet lighting to balance out the impact and beauty of this unique, black kitchen. The mirrors are additionally placed behind the black Fenix Laminate shelves, which optically opens up the interior space. There were horizontal channels used made of aluminum, which are in conversation with the horizontal linear lighting, function and design elements that make this kitchen design so stunning.
There are black blended kitchen appliances used to create a seamless, minimalistic look, so the modern kitchen appears as one whole piece with various details and design facets that can be admired on second sight, when having a little closer look at the whole kitchen design. The cooktop and oven are fully exposed and made of black glass, while the refrigerator and dishwasher are integrated into the kitchen, making them only visible whenever using these kitchen appliances.
