WHAT’S IN A HINGE?
Renowned furniture and lighting designer Jorge Pensi knows a great kitchen isn’t just a showpiece— it’s the place where the art of the chef is born.
It’s for this reason that this Spanish-born innovator has rethought his approach to kitchen design.“I believe that it is possible to join different arts, to create an atmosphere with material objects and also with sensations,” Pensi says.
While the designer’s PLUSMODO line of kitchen architec- tural elements has been lauded for its innovative, hinge-free drawer system, it’s his multimedia approach to kitchen design that’s really been turning heads. The visual-artist-turned-music- maestro has composed and performed three songs designed specifically to enhance the atmosphere of a PLUSMODO kitchen.
What is created is an intimate twenty-first century kitchen experience. “The intention of the PLUSMODO music is to describe the life we are living: some moments to talk and communicate in the kitchen, at breakfast, after a long day at work and finally back at home, relaxed in the evening over a candlelit dinner—this music is the perfect accompaniment,” Pensi smiles.
Aesthetically, the horizontal lines of Pensi’s countertops punctuate the kitchen with a refined, modern flare and glass drawers provide elegant storage and display all at once. Now that’s one sleek and snazzy package.
