Maistri at Eurocucina
published on: 4 aprile 2016
Maistri was founded 70 years ago in Valpolicella and in a short time it developed from a small family-run workshop to a brand of inspiration, synonymous with high quality, with customer service, and with attention to the raw materials employed. Maistri kitchens are produced in a factory of about 45,000 sq. meters, with a fully automated system that allows and guarantees high-quality production and customer service without losing the flexibility and fast delivery typical of artisans. This is what makes Maistri one of the leading companies in the national market and a growing one in the international market. Strong point and mission of the company is the continuous innovation of lines, materials and styles: an ever-evolving design of kitchens – the main production- and other living spaces to represent contemporary trends and lifestyle in the best way.
Alberto Minotti Design
In Altea the uniformity of design is taken to its extreme, by combining the lines of the tall units with the ones of the base units. In this project, the focus is on the sole element of discontinuity that can be found in a kitchen: the gap between the fronts. This black line is visible in all the kitchens but it can be annoying, particularly with lighter colors. On the contrary, in Altea this gap between the doors has been disguised by a vertical gola profile: the distance between the doors has been enlarged to let the light in and to draw attention to the gola profile. The doors extend over the gola and allow an intuitive opening while hiding the gap.
In this edition Maistri has focused on kitchen projects designed for open space solutions, where the kitchen has to be both functional and beautiful: that is, a living and aesthetic experience. Kitchens are displayed on 180 sq. meters, well visible from the outside and accessible from three sides of the booth. Two of the compositions are turned outward, just like in a showroom window; in these two projects Maistri has put the accent on the linearity of gola profiles: in ALTEA they develop only vertically, while in ARKA –which at the Show is displayed with black base units, light blue wall units and a black fenix laminate top- the gola profiles are horizontal, also in the tall units. Inside the stand, an open plaza displays three different project-concepts that best explain Maistri’s philosophy for open space kitchens, designed to cherish moments and interact with family members. Maistri has chosen to give importance to lightness in the kitchen and presents many solutions that play with the light and the volumes of the walls. Here is displayed a GIZA project in wood, with a sliding counter top that in few seconds can hide or show the working functions. Among the finishes and the colors available for GIZA and VIVA islands is the new moca Lapitec finish which is in perfect harmony with the Londongray color: a well-established partnership between the two business institutions. Another new element for open space kitchens are the HOLE tall units, here presented with ecru color and the new natural bolivar essence. Natural materials characterize also the other elements in the booth: from brown elm wood to natural bolivar, to tidewine stone. Further to the great success received, the Armonia project has been carried on by Maistri with the presentation of some new melamine finishes.
