The name is AKB_08 (Arrital Kitchen Berton_08) where the “B” indicates the partnership between the north-Italian company Arrital Cucine and chef Andrea Berton. It is Arrital's big news for 2016, taking pride of place at the company's stand at Eurocucina. It is the first time that a home kitchen has been designed and built according to a top chef's needs in terms of efficiency and functionality, while never compromising on Arrital's characteristic design simplicity and compositional elegance. From the appliances and spatial organization, to the fittings and materials, everything has been chosen with utmost care and under the watchful eyes of the chef and designer, who have shared all of the design steps, each contributing with their own special, unique creativity. Among the innovative features of AKB_08 is the multifunction “Twice” work-top, a solution that lets users increase the work surface if necessary or, by lifting it, exploit the ergonomic stainless steel equipped space, with its essential accessories and tools for all the food-preparation steps. A unique and new creation inspired by the chef's functional needs is the pull-out “AKB_Board” cutting-board/tray. This smart system has a wood or Teflon cutting board that rests on an easy-to-clean removable steel tray that can be used to serve at the dining table. The system has spaces for a knife and spatula. To ensure enough lighting to meet the chef's needs in all the various stages, the AKB_08 has "Focus on", the design lighting system with a sliding track that provides dynamic lighting movement above the work zone. The battery of the LED lamp can be conveniently recharged after sliding it to the runner-end, in switch-off position. When space is at a premium, the “AKB Case” comes in handy as a two-level container that works also as a divider. Last but not least, inspired by professional kitchens is the inclusion of some special appliances so precious for those who take their cooking seriously, such as the "Salamandra", which allows food to be kept at a set temperature or to brown or toast foods; or the blast chiller, which can quickly lower the temperature of a dish from the cooking temperature to one suited for refrigeration or freezing.
